Hey guys, I saw that it is now possible to root the Sonzy Z2 build 17.1.2.a.0.314.

I've seen a lot of posts about boot loaders,and TA partitions, and I don't really know what it means. So my question is this:

If I root my device, without unlocking the bootloader, will this have any adverse effects on my phone? So will I lose the ability to use the Sony stuff, or will my camera app stop working?

If any one could answer these questions it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance guys!

Rooting wont have any bad effects on your phone, it just means that apps that need root access can get it, you need root to backup the TA partition which is only lost if you unlock your bootloader, rooting means you will lose the OTA system updates but not OTA app updates in the update centre app. It wont affect the camera AFAIK.
