Re: Xperia Ray - Failed to update to ICS

Hi,

The same thing is happening to me.

I accept the update on the start screen, then on the prepare screen PC Companion shuts down my phone. After that I get a screen that says to:

      1. remove the USB cable from both the computer and the phone

     2. Verify that the battery level is at least 50% (which is weird since the phone is shut down)

     3. Turn off the phone (Again... PC Companion shut down the phone earlier...)

     4. Connect the USB cable to the PC

     5. Press and hold the volume down key on the phone while plugging the USB cable into my phone.

After I do this and pressed "Back" PC Companion checks for the phone but only to move back to the same screen after a couple of minutes.

Any help?? Any Ideas?

Thanks

Re: Xperia Ray - Failed to update to ICS

You can try this:

Before installing the update service from the link provided make sure to uninstall everything, and delete the files that you can't uninstall.

This is what I did and it worked for me.

Good luck!
