New Firmware: 29.1.A.0.101

Today my C5 got the new software update and for the first time arrived via OTA rather than via PCC.

Nothing really changed and the device works correctly and without any hiccups. What is different is a nice addition, it finally include a special section in the About device area: Android security patch level.

This is really good and a nice touch from Sony, means that now probably all the Xperia Serie will get regular software updates, at least the very important Security Patches released by Google every time a new security threat get discovered and obviously fixed by the Big G.

Thank you Sony, this is really appreciated by your fellow customers.

Kudos!

One incident worth to comment, the device became unresponsive. Not even pressing the power button to reboot worked. Just plain back screen, no notification. Dead.

Luckily the old Xperia trick to reboot the phone using the not always documented button near the Sim card slot worked and now I am online again.

Let's see if it will happen again.
