  • @RoberM for testing
  • @surdu_petru for testing and handy pointers
  • @Androxyde for allowing to use his linux and mac adb binaries.

  • @DevShaft for some code help on the windows installer (the menu!)
  • @Androxyde again, but now for his bash code/script suggestions... oh boy this guy is a genius! :highfive:

Great news! So I can now root my locked bootloader using the exploit, then install this to flash a new rom and tweaks etc?

Sorry..for my stupid question. I am so new for Android.

Question 1: I just rooted my Z2 by Doomlord's tool: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2783750. And now I want to install this dual recovery. So, if I installed this dual recovery, then do I need to unlock bootloaded to flash any customize rom or tweaks? such as, sound mod from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2758189

Question 2: Which option should i select? 1 or 2? After rooted I saw the SuperSU icon on my Z2. So, is it correct if I select option 1?

==============================================

==============================================

[ 1. Installation on ROM rooted with SuperSU ]
[ 2. Installation on ROM rooted with SuperUser ]
[ 3. Installation on unrooted ROM ]
[ 4. Exit ]
Please choose install action. [1,2,3,4]?

Thanks a lot.

You only need an unlocked bootloader if the rom requires a custom kernel to operate. Other then that, you can do everything you want.

So after running the new Z2 root tool I can't seem to install your dual recovery using Z2-lockeddualrecovery2.7.124-BETA.installer.zip
Currently on the .402 update and using SuperSU.

At first I thought it was a problem writing to /system but then managed to get binaries updated and Xposed installed.

Tried selecting both option 1 and 2 at different occasions but with no luck.
I don't have a log file from the phone, but I have attached the output from both attempts as text files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can you run my tool again (use latest version) and attach output? Thanks.
