[Guide] Reset your Z2 using ADB
First off, this method requires that your Z2 is rooted.
Fortunately, even if you're locked out (like me) but have USB Debugging enabled (Settings > Applications > Development), you can still root your player using Gungr's guide.
Your player is rooted? Good, then do the following steps:
- Navigate to *location of the Android SDK*\platform-tools\ (in my case C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools\)
- Hold Shift + right click on a blank place in the window and select "Open Command Prompt here"
- In the Command Prompt window, enter "adb shell"
- As soon as the window shows a $, enter "wipe data"
Your player will unlock itself automatically and you can access all settings etc again.
I recommend you to re-install the current firmware to make sure everything works fine after applying this guide.
Please note that all your apps will be uninstalled and all settings will be reset.
