After asking some people to try this method on their phones, it turned out that you can root your xperia z2 using the latest kingroot apk (v4.8)
Tested on xperia z2 and z3 compact

The steps are really simple
Download kingroot from here http://www.kingroot.net/wap
Install the apk and open it
Try to root
If successful then congratulations
***if it fails at a certain point,,, try to use a vpn then try again***

To have better root access, install SuperSU using this method (source: w0lfdroid)
Download and install Terminal emulator app here
Download and unzip "Replace_Kingroot_With_SuperSU.zip" file here

Send the extracted folder "mrw" to the internal storage of your device and make sure that this folder contains 4 files
Open Terminal emulator and type :
su
Allow root permission
Type: sh /sdcard/mrw/root.sh
It might display some error, at the end it will launch supersu or open supersu manually.
Update su binary normal, then reboot.

I would really appreciate it if more people try this method and share the result in the comments
Thanks

Looks good, but better to go with installing super su trough recovery after king root. I got a bootloop while I was trying to install super su after Kingroot. And anyway, you'll need recovery for flashing, why root without TWRP. Kingroot roots. 264 in v4.6 w/o any issues.

simplest method to get root with supersu:
1. download kingroot apk, put on internal storage
2. download (or create your own) prerooted zip, (or a ROM with supersu) put on internal sd card
3. download dual recovery to PC and unzip
4. make sure you have developer options and usb debugging enabled
5. make sure you have unknown sources enabled under settings/security
6. install kingroot apk and run it. It will say not exploit found or somesuch but you can continue from there and it will eventuall succeed
7. once you have root with kingroot connect the phone to your pc, make sure you authorize the usb debugging and run the batch file in the unzipped dual recovery
8. choose "phone rooted with supersu" and grant root access with kingroot when it pops up
9. let the dual recovery install and eventually it will reboot to twrp
10. not sure if it is necessary but I did a full wipe; data,cache, dalvik and system
11. install the the prerooted zip with twrp
12 reboot to a rooted phone with supersu
