Re: keyboard bug on 4.4.4 build .108

Hi rudit,

 

I also have this problem. However, it is only when using whatsapp, when i press the back button, it usually switches to the camera.. How do you fix this?

 

Also occasionaly when making a call, the phone freezes for a few seconds.

Hi

Just updated to the new firmware .157 and phone is acting very odd. It's very hot, battery drain is very quick, it vibrates randomly for no reason.

I updated OTA and everything seemed to work fine but clearly something isn't right. I have tried a repair in pc companion but my phone is in MTP mode and when I try to change to MSC mode the phone crashes and says USB connectivity is not responding.

I have tried a hard reboot (pressing power and volum) and that doesn't work.

Any other ideas I may have missed?

Many thanks
Brett

I purchased my new Xperia Z1 Compact just few days ago. During the first boot I've got the notification about the new update available: KitKat 4.4.4 (14.4.A.0.157). Updated it...

After the regular using of the phone of two days suddenly the notifications sound and ringthones where gone. I can not hear any incoming call or notification...

Have somebody any idea how to solve this problem?

Resetting the phone to the factory defaults didn't help and repairing the phone thru the PC Companion takes the same results...

Thank anybody in advance for the answer.

Slow down after 14.4.A.0.157

Installed this update when I had a notification on my phone that an update was available. Went smoothly but now every app is taking forever to respond and open and when they do, they run very slowly. For example, I had no problem with Google maps before the update. Now it takes ages to run. And when trying to zoom into a street, it takes ages to render. What's going on?

That's not the update or the phone but your internet/data connection

No, it's not my Internet connection. I've checked on other devices. Other apps that don't use the Internet are also slow as I've put abone. And as I said, I had no problem before the update.

Re: Problems and bugs with KitKat 4.4.4 (14.4.A.0.155 and .157)

Mmmm weird. I started my phone in safe mode, all working fine. So presumed it's an app causing a problem. Restarted my phone and 18 applications have just updated! Let it update without opening anything. Now all apps loading very fast, everything is loading instantly and anything that uses data is working perfectly. So I presume its something to do with those updates which had got stuck somehow? And putting the phone in safe mode has reset something? No idea!?!
