Can't update Xperia SP with Windows 8.1, Is there another way?

Hello,

 

I can't update Xperia SP with Windows 8.1. And the update say that I need a computer, Seriusly? I thinks Windows 8.1 is one of the most popular OS out there, I can't believe it.  Is there another way? 

 

Thanks!

    Hi Shatagua

 

                      As of now, Sony PC companion is not supported by Win 8 I guess.. So as other forum says try SUS. Check the other post regarding the same topic..

Hi,

 

I have windows 8.1 Pro in my Lappy... I installed PCC and its working fine.. it also dfetected my phonr.. but i never updrade phone from this Laptop. I just bye it on 26th Dec 2012.

 

I also instelled SUS but it will not show my device as some other forum says its Os's fault.

So my recommandation is just install PCC and Get update. or Install Virtual machine and then in Vertual machine install windows 7 or Windows XP then install SUS on that virtual OS and Update your phone...

 

All the Best....!!!!
