    Process 1 : Rooting Sony Xperia Z2

    We will start with the rooting process first. Without that we cannot install CWM. Rooting will give you super user access. After that you can backup the entire factory OS through various tools. This will help you to restore original settings back when there is some problem.

    1. Copy Super SU zip file in the memory card of your device. Keep in the root folder.
    2. Restart your device in Recovery mode. For that you have to turn it off first. Turn it on back. The notification led on the top side will change color. At that time press the Volume Up or Down key multiple time to enter recovery mode.
    3. From the recovery the first thing you have to do is create a Nandroid Backup. This is required. So that in case if this process fails you can restore things back as it was before.
    4. For taking backup just go in Nandroid Backup > Backup & Restore > Backups.
    5. Once done you have to choose install from zip. Select the file that you had copied in the phone. And wait back. The flashing process will start as soon as you select it.
    6. Once over restart your phone. The device is no rooted. Now we will move ahead with the second step of installing CWM Custom Recovery.

    Process 2 : Installing Custom Recovery on Sony Xperia Z2

    1. Once the device is rooted adding CWM is quiet easy. Extract the content of CWM recovery in a folder on your desktop. There will be two file. One will be CWM Recovery Zip another one will be 1-click-CWM-recovery-installer.bat.
    2. Turn on your phone and move the CWM Recovery zip file in the memory card of your device.
    3. Connect it with your pc through original usb cable and enable usb debugging.
    4. Now go in the CWM Folder on your desktop and run 1-click-CWM-recovery-installer.bat. The flashing process will start. You have to see the onscreen instructions. Just follow them.
