Re: Reboot loop in Xperia ZL after update to Lollipop

Before putting a new battery in my sony xperia zl, I did a lot of research online on how to reset a BMS of a sony xperia zl and contacted some people who know a lot about batteries (Battery University) online with the question how to reset the BMS of my xperia ZL. They told me that it impossible to reset the battery, so the only logical conclusion is to put a new battery in, and therfore putting a new BMS in your phone, because it is located on the battery.

 

I have fixed my sony xperia ZL by buying an online battery and completely screwing the motherboard out of the phone, to replace the battery. Before buying an online battery be warned that there are many fake batteries on the market who look exacly like an original one. I bought mine by looking very long on the internet and comparing a lot of batteries with the one from my phone. If you don't want to look long after a battery I can recommend this site, because it really are original batteries (or at least very good fake one's, because I didn't notice any difference between my battery and theirs.)

 

The only thing you can learn from this is not to install another deathgrade from sony ever again, except if you want to buy a new battery and disassamble your phone

This is the page I used to disassamble my sony xperia zl (they tell you in a pretty good way how to disassamble your whole smartphone)

I hope that this can be of any help and that you don't have the problem of malfunctioning devices any longer, so you can all enjoy your sony xperia zl.

Re: Reboot loop in Xperia ZL after update to Lollipop

same thing here with a Z , Lollipop killed it, and now i am out of luck, because i am out of warranty period in canada.  Funny that this phone has a 2YEAR warranty in europe, but not in north america... shame on you Sony, i used to love your products.

Re: Reboot loop in Xperia ZL after update to Lollipop

I have had the same problem a few times before and was able to get my phone to start and then used PCC to do a fix to wipe my phone and that worked. This time couldn't get anywhere past the Sony Logo screen.

 

I just got my battery replaced and everything is great. Phone charges better, battery life is much better again. Crappy but very happy again!
