After opening the back cover (which I already did 2 months ago), what is the procedure to bring it back to waterproof state? OR only Sony store reps can do that with some special procedure? Witrigs.com sells Z1 adhesives very cheap. Is original OEM adhesive enough to make it waterproof/resistant?

If you want your waterproof back, google this part "OEM Sony Xperia Z Ultra XL39h Battery Door Adhesiveroof".

It should work according to the service manual.
But you will need to remive glue first from your device.

Guys, regarding assembly/disassembly and adhesives : RTFM !!!!
i'm posted link to instructions earlier : http://rghost.net/52107069

read instructions, watch videos and follow them STEP-BY-STEP to not end with torn out flex cables


regarding water-proof for z1 :

you MUST replace
Adhesive WP Cover Rear and Adhesive WP Window Back

however, if you have really talented hands, it is possible to reach testpoint in z1 without removing Rear Cover Assy.
in this case, only Adhesive WP Window Back should be changed.

They still seem to have some life in their mobile reporting it as a qcom device to windows (reconnecting over and over again), if I send some or one of them over to you by pm, would you be able to help them too?

if security area intact, xperia z can be fixed.
let user attempt to flash phone using s1tool in msm8974 recovery mode and post program output.
any APP package can be used as phone will not be flashed for sure - i'm just need to check s1tool output.

in fact, to restore boot functionality, for ANY c68xx phone you can use APP part from ANY c68xx phone firmware.

however, you are REQUIRED to flash phone with corresponding to model firmware, otherwise you can have different problems , like : no network, no imei, phone will simple restart during boot.

same goes to c69xx phones.
