5.1.1, problems with camera and notifications

I use my own sound files stored on sd card mp3 format

 

if I set the alarm sound using one of these it crashes the clock app - no problem using default system sounds

if I set the ringtone using one of these the tones only rings once not repeated - np problem using default ringtones

 

minor error but still not working correctly

Re: 5.1.1. bug report

camera stops working after taking several photos, needs reboot

 

 

click sound disappears when taking photo just before this happens

 

clearing cache etc has no effect

Have you reinstall the latest update?

Re: 5.1.1. bug report

same problem also reported by another user on XDA

 

something to note as this may be sound related, the shutter sound stops working but I can keep taking pictures it is only when I close the camera it won't open again, and as I said above if I use a custom sound for alarm it crashes the clock app and custom ringtones only ring once not continuous ..............................something weird about the sounds and how 5.1.1 is interacting with them on the camera and clock app

Re: The issue of Xperia Z1 with the latest Android 5.1.1

Did you try to clear the cache?

- Go to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Camera -> Clear data and restart your phone.

Re: 5.1.1. bug report

Updated to 5.1 via PC Companion last night. Unable to use my phone since. Every time I try to turn it on, I get the "Adroid is Starting" message, and it optimizes all my apps. When it finally completes this process, the boot-up never fully completes and the phone restarts and the process starts all over again.

 

I had read on a forum for the 5.1 update on the nVidia Shield that this Optimization Boot Loop was due to the fact that "Move App to SD" is no longer available natively in 5.1, and that Android gets stuck in a loop trying to build an rebuild the ART runtime in relation to any apps you have on your SD card.

 

I've tried booting with the SD card removed, but I get the same issue. Can anyone advise how I do a factory reset without being able to fully boot the OS, and I don't have PC Companion available to me at the moment???

Re: 5.1.1. bug report

Have same problem with sound/ringtones as GeoffH. I've noticed that sound selector hangs if any custom sound is selected.

Looks like another bug making this phone hardly useable.

Re: 5.1.1. bug report

Hi . There is not much that you can do without your pcc on a boot looped device . At least if there is i am not aware of it.(official way you can also use flash tool and ...)
You have to launch a system repair using pcc . Open pcc and dont connect your phone to the computer .Click support zone then click phone \tablet update click on blue zone in error page that pops up . follow the instructions given by pcc.
