I've never tried to put the phone under water. It's water resistance is good if accidentally get in touch with water.

Backup your data then make a factory reset from settings menu and connect your phone to PC Companion. Once it's connected click check for updates and then click repair my phone.
Next the pc companion will download the firmware file from SONY servers and will ask you to turn off your phone. Then you have to press the volume up or down(try with both) and plug the usb cable.
The flashing process will begin.
Once the process will finish then setup your phone.

Few days ago I updated my phone manually to 4.4.4. Because the 4.4.4 is still new you have to wait some time for the developers find a way to root this update.

I found a tutorial for rooting the latest 4.4.4 for Locked and Unlocked bootloaders but I haven't tried it yet. I'm too busy now days.
This is the link:

If you're running 4.4.2 then you can use the towelroot app which is one of the easiest method of rooting a phone.
Google it.

Note: Factory reset will wipe all the data on the Internal storage. Please make a backup first.

The signal on my Xperia Z is 100%.
It never drops signal.
I've never experienced signal loss in a year and a half.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-09-30 14:15 from 6Quc - click to readCurrently my Xperia Z is running the latest android version 4.4.4. No problems at all. The battery life is good enough(Will last you one full day with 4-5hours onscreen time which is quite good for this smartphone).
The Display is gorgeous!!! Don't listen to others about viewing angles or so.. It's amazing when you watch some movies or images.

There is no heating problem. I've never experienced, but will heat up a bit if you constantly run app which requires more CPU power. It's normal.

Currently my phone is 21h on battery and the battery level is at 59%.
Stand by time is perfect on SONY phones.

If you can't afford the new Z3 or Z2 then go for Xperia Z.
As I said I'm using it for a year and a half and still love it. btw I own Samsung galaxy S4 and I can confirm the Xperia Z is much much better than the S4.
I hope this will help you.
Cheers
