I found Sony merged Z2 source into Z3 source like unified kernel!
So I build it for D6502/D6503 23.0.1.A.3.12 and it worked fine

Note I don't use Z2 for daily driver now,
so I can only confirm it's working without SIM.
It should be OK with SIM, though.

[UPDATE 3/1]
I sold my Z2, so I can't check if new versions work on Z2.

What is FOTA kernel recovery?
[/B]
NOTE: This is old info as we can use official recovery partition on newer ROM.
Xperia doesn't have recovery partition for user,
but we have FOTA kernel partition for OTA.
Since we have to unlock bootloader and OTA won't work on unlocked,
we can re-use useless FOTA kernel as recovery partition using Dees-Troy's "extract_elf_ramdisk".

With FOTA kernel recovery, you can update your recovery without updating kernel.For example, TeamWin provides TWRP images of FOTA kernel for Z2:
http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/232You can flash images to FOTA kernel by fastboot command like
Code:
fastboot flash recovery fotakernel.img

To enter into FOTA recovery, press power key when LED is on.

How to restore DRM functions?
When you unlock bootloader you will lose X-Reality, noise reduction and so on,
but you can restore them!
Original thread is here, but I updated steps for Z2.

1. Download zip from original thread
* Choose KitKat version (for 4.4) or Lollipop version (for 5.0)

2. Place zip in internal or external storage of your device

3. Reboot into recovery and do Factory Reset

4. Reboot into flashmode and flash FTF with Flashtool
Any FTF is OK, but of cource use FTF for same version you are using now.
Wipe: Check APPSLOG and CACHE
Exclude: Don't check

5. Close Flashtool, unplug and plug your phone and reopen Flashtool, then relock bootloader
Click BLU icon to show relock button and click it.

6. Flash FTF (same as 4.)

7. Close Flashtool, unplug and plug your phone and reopen Flashtool, then unlock bootloader
Click BLU icon to show unlock button and click it.

8. Reboot into fastboot mode and flash my kernel

9. Reboot into recovery and install DRM Restore zip

10. Reboot

11. Done!

After doing this, do not restore old data since it will revert DRM restore.
You can restore system with recovery and use Titanium Backup or something to restore app data.
Note: When you flash new ROM (not kernel), you must flash DRM Restore zip.

If you get "net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" when connecting xda,
please disable PrototypeProtection with Titanium Backup or something similar.

Thanks for the work, will give it a try soon

existenz 4.0.0 is based on stock 4.4.4, so it's supposed to work?

can you share your OC voltages? i recently switched to abricot, now 2,2ghz is unstable at 900mV …

I'm also using Existenz 4.0.0 and stable at the moment, haven't tried over-clocking yet, but at 2265 Mhz, it is working fine.

It's older 4.4.4 firmware 23.0.1.A.0.167, so compatibility will not be 100% but it will work.
I set -36mV for all since I had reboot when I was using Z2 as daily driver and set -48mV.
Just for reference, I'm setting -84mV on Z3 and working well.

Great to see more development on kernel. Already download but not tried yet since I'm currently testing abricot kernel. Can you update with 167 kernel later sir?

Everything apears to work fine

Exept that that you have said isnt working, aka 3.2Ghz OC

If you need a bootsplash ill make one for you unless your capable of that your self @AndroPlus


Edit- OOM Values apear messed up and cause app crashes in certain apps

Update?
23.0.1.A.3.12 is the newest firmware for D6503
I can't revert kernel source only for .167, so I won't make it.
Anyway, it will work well on .167 since hugoprh said it's working on .167 based ROM.

Thanks, but I have to *force* loading of custom bootsplash on newer kernel and I think it takes some seconds on boot.
It should be one or two seconds, but I prefer shorter booting time.

No. Unfortunately it is not working on ExistenZ 4.0.0 based on 167. Bootloop.

Down reverting would be awesome...

This kernel did work on stock .167, 3.9, 3.12 very well. Reboots when PimpmyZ1 is opened or any other rooted app is opened.
