Hi

Here is flasable zip file wich install latest ROM 23.0.1.A.0.167, latest beta SuperSu v2.19 and latest beta Dualrecovery .154 for Tablet Z2 with read/write acces to system.
This is tested and works just fine though make nandroid backup before flashing.
Install it by flashing whole zip file with custom recovery. Wipes aren´t necessary but good practise.
Here is the link:https://mega.co.nz/#!EB4CiJgT!Tvav1NKMqhwnXNGBNU6-iIrRTNv0qJuOvHttGUlGnA0

Deodex patch for above rom to those who want to use modifications which are made only for deodexed rom´s.
This is tested and works just fine but make nandroid backup before flashing.

Warning: this will delete all files from system/app, system/framework and priv-app not just .odex files. That´s include Superuser.apk. So you will loose root if you don´t flash SuperSu after flashing deodex patch.

Install deodex patch by:
- flashing deodex.zip file in custom recovery,
- don´t reboot to system but flash also flashable Super.Su.zip file in custom recovery,
- don´t reboot to system but wipe at least dalvik-cache,
- reboot to system.
Here is the link to deodex patch: https://mega.co.nz/#!0BJyhJZC!LGISUimx7-YQFQrE5cVisS7R-87bRiJLraUAcxGyIIw

If you need to download SuperSu you will find download links
for stable v2.16 here: http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
for beta v2.19 here: http://download.chainfire.eu/593/SuperSU/BETA-SuperSU-v2.19.zip

Thanks very much for this. Much better than having to unlock bootloader etc so we get to keep root. Gonna flash it to my sgp512 and report back. Is build.prop the only thing I need to change afterwards to make it look like an sgp512.

This work on my SGP561?

Sent from my SGP561 using XDA Premium HD app

Thank´s all for you feedback.

I don´t think this will work on your device. Different hardware.

No such problems here. It might help if you do wipes.

Haven´t tested this. As far as I know only difference is memory size.

Yeah it works fine. Way better than an FTF! Sony PC companion and a few other apps report it as SPG511 instead of SGP512 and it annoys me! :D I need to edit the build.prop to hopefully fix this. And I can confirm I too get the bug where the device won't sleep when you shut the factory case. It wakes it though! I'm sure Sony will release an update to fix it soon.

Just wanted to say thanks and let everybody know that you get a writable system partition with this Rom. The update worked fine and I must still rooted with a locked bootloader.

The only problem with this update is that the screen stays on if I close the case but I guess Sony will fix this some time.

Thank´s for you feedback. I made most of these files for my personal use but happy that my work helps other´s too.
Yes I make small chance to @Nut´s dualrecovery installer and so we have system RW.
About that bug with Sony´s official case, I hope Sony will fix that soon.

I just want to let you know that I have the official case from Sony, the 23.0.1.A.0.167 firmware and I don't have this problem of screen staying on while closing the case.

For witch reason do you think it's a Sony bug ?

You need to flash everything in that flashable.zip file. Wipes are optional but good practice.
To answer your second question I already made deodex patch for this firmware. Testing it right now and if it´s okey I can share it with you if you want.

Wel two reasons. This is Sony stock firmware just added root and custom recovery. Other reason is that there is report in Q & A section about same problem after OTA update to .167 firmware. If you now something more about this please share.

Ok, I don't knew that it was reported with the fully stock firmware.
I've updated my tab with PC Companion. Maybe it's the reason why I don't have this problem.

Anyway, thanks for the answer and for sharing your work.

Don´t have ps4 so can´t test it. I know there is xposed module called RootCloak which can hide root for some app´s but reported that not all of them.

ok i tried rootclock didnt work

I flashed the zip on my SGP512 (dirty flashed over 17.1.2.A.0.314, only wiped cache and dalvik) and everything works perfect (my system info now tells me that I have a SGP511, but I couldn't care less, my device still has 32GB and not just 16GB)

thanks a lot! :good:

greetings

    What keys did you change?
    I found these that seems pretty straight-forward:

    ro.build.product=SGP512
    ro.product.name=SGP512
    ro.product.device=SGP512
    ro.semc.product.model=SGP512
    ro.product.model=SGP512

    These two I am a little worried about though, since they seem to contain some kind of identification or key.
    Did you change these as well?

    ro.build.description=SGP512-user 4.4.2 17.1.2.A.0.314 zg4hgq release-keys
    ro.build.fingerprint=Sony/SGP512/SGP512:4.4.2/17.1.2.A.0.314/zg4hgq:user/release-keys
    (I changed the part in italics, since it looked like some kind of fingerprint for my device)

    Oh, and these keys are from my SGP512 with 4.4.2, I haven't flashed 4.4.4 yet :)
    Yup. I just worked my way through the file and changed anything that said SGP511 to SGP512. There was also a line that said WIFI16GB that I changed to WIFI32GB. I also changed my region codes to the UK ones. And I changed the region to GB instead of US. It reports as SGP512 in settings app and didn't break so I'm happy! :)

    Thanks, this will save a lot of time

    Nah. I don´t think this is idiotic question. The answer is that you have wrong file. The correct one is "TabZ2-lockeddualrecovery2.7.154-BETA.flashable.zip".

    DOH failed at the first hurdle .... RTFM next time huh :)

    Oh and thank you
