Finally!
Apparently everyone has to find its own procedure ...! XD
In summary, for me it's this:

1- Uninstall all the drivers (QPST / Miflash / Zuk1.0.6)
2- Reinstall in order: Miflash / Zuk1.0.6
3- Switch off your phone by holding the off button until the second LED flah.
4- Connect the blue wire and green.
5- Connect your phone to your PC.
6- After 4 seconds disconnect the wires. (Black & Green)
7- It's again Recognize as 900E.
8- DO NOT unplug the cable from pc of phone.
9- Connect again green and black.
10- Then turn off the phone.
11- Disconnect the black and green wire 4/50 second after power off.
RECOGNIZED: D

May be it has some driver issues
Uninstall and reinstall drivers
And try pressing power button for long time
If no rxn charge the phone over night

I have a Z2 that is bricked, however I have a Mac and not a PC and my Mac is not recognizing the phone. I have tried to connect it to Syncmate but I need to access that through the phone.

Any suggestions on how to fix a bricked Z2 through a Mac and not a PC

When I plug my phone into a PC the device is not even coming up on the computer. I am at a complete loss as to how to fix this issue. Is there anyway that my phone is not completely dead?

The white LED is flashing but thats the only thing that is working

Yes, I got unbrick my zuk z2. I do not know exactly what was wrong, the fact is that I decided to redo it all again. I'll describe the step-by-step, maybe help someone:
1-I uninstalled all the drivers and cleaned the entries in the registry.
2- Restart in test mode and driver verification disabled
3-I installed everything again
4- I put the rom folder in the root of c: and rename it to "z"
5-I rebooted again
6-I got edl and went back in edl again
7-run qfil in adm mode
8-Success, my zuk was reborn.

Thanks for the help.

Because of stupidity
Without proper research and knowledge flashing procedure causes brick.
Hoho Chief.. Stupidity,? I am not pro but being using sdb and twro since sgs1 and froyo... Never had a brick yet untill zuk.... Its a superb phone but there are somethings that are rare...

I bricked my phone by restoring twrp backup.... Well according your math then i am stupid....

Some zuks needs chinese twrp to flash.. Some regular official update... Etc.... I would say human error and not really usef friendly "flashing" from lenovo....

Dont get me wrong i have my zuk z2 and i am 100,% positive that its best bang for the buck... But there are some minor issues...

Is this for the cable that comes with the Z2? Or is it the same for any Usb-c cable? Meaning will the wire colors be in the same location?
