Hey guys after my initial failure at trying to upgrade to 575 at the weekend, I didn't realize 575 was a MM upgrade so that was partly the problem the rest was the wrong SU and recovery in my PRF flash file.

Problem I have now is i've read that many forum posts im not 100% sure what files and steps I need to take , every 575 flash instructions Ive read seem to have slightly different ways of doing it.


Im coming from 23.4.A.1.264 (LL) What i need help is to clarify exactly what i need to make a successful prf upgrade.

Im assuming Recroot is one in the recovery section of PRF?
So called dummy file in SU section of PRF?

What about bootloop.zip and RIC.zip I hear about , are they required as well?

I know xposed needs to be uninstalled as well.

LOCKED bootloader

Thx for any help/links or clarification on steps you can provide.


edit:- Sorry mods this is in wrong section, wasnt paying attention , Sorry could someone move to QA section ? thx

(from this post, that helped me):

prerequisities: 5.1.1 stock, rooted, with NUT Dual recovery
put all ZIPs to your MicroSD card and flash in this order.

0: do you currently have xposed? If yes, get the xposed uninstaller (google it, easy to find) and flash uninstaller first.
0. Factory reset from within current recovery (Dalvik, data, cache...)
1. flashablemm.zip
2. byeselinux.zip
3. ricdefeat.zip
4. bootloopfix.zip (FOR .575, important to get this version)
5. xposed installer.zip
6. reboot
7. INSTALL BUSYBOX (get app in PlayStore and use it to install it)
8. enable unknown sources and usb debugging
9. then connect your phone to the PC and run the install.bat from the Z2_MM_Recovery folder (Accept any prompt popping up on your phone)
5. Phone will reboot into recovery when successfull, then you're done

ZIP files from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...posed-t3390498
RECOVERY INSTALL: from here https://mega.nz/#!UlxGBQaD!HObJIHr9v...xwE4qlPa89CGbY - Remember: only install the recovery from this file, everything else from the thread above.
NOTE: I had big problems when flashing TWRP 3.0.x IMG file from this thread. Instead get the recovery downloaded in this ZIP and install it form your PC, as described in the steps above.

One more note: I've waited for about 15minutes after finishing the flashing proces (step6). I had the startup animation going on, normally it should take maybe 5-10minutes. I got fed up after nothing was happening and restarted the phone - press the red button beside SIM flap and than power on the phone. After that it started normally.

what version of z2 do you have? if you have D6503, you can use my prerooted MM (.575). Here's the link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...mized-t3387571
no need for bootloop fix

if other version, you can use these files in your prf:
dummy flashable: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8n...pJdzZwRm8/view
Recrootv4: http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/g...-0-mm-t3337357
