As long as there's no official change log on Sony's Blog, you'll not find more information here.

Then it's a bug fixing update, improving performance and resolving minor issues. You may or may not notice any visual differences.

Re: New Update today 15/Nov

Hi, I have a question. I decided to update my phone this week, because of that messagge about a new software version. The thing is that my xperia has rebooted 3 times, the last 3 days, and I'm worrying about that. Can you tell how can I bring my phone back to the previous version, or tell me if your having the same problems as me? 

Thanks

Hi

No problems to date but only been  6 hrs so time will tell !

As for return are far as I am aware you cant but my advice would be to reinstall from the Sony  web site via PC repair tool  that will give a clean install

Re: New Update today 15/Nov

I got my German Z1 Compact updated OTA to 14.6.A.1.216 on Wednesday last week and it is really annoying:

 

- to unlock screen it takes me sometimes more than five (5!) attempts

- it is hardly possible to swipe the status bar down; it only works by chance

- with Xperia keyboard in most cases it is impossible to type the most right characters (e.g."&", ">", "9", "\") but their left neighbour is printed; with one hand keyboard it is working, though

- cellular reception is much worse than before the update (1-2 bars less)

- camera sometimes hangs and can only get back to operation by locking and unlocking screen which may takes several attemps (see point 1 above)

 

Several reboots and even a factory reset have not solved the problem!

 

Hope there will be an update solving those awful trouble very soon!
