4.2.2 update finally available for the C6603 Generic IN users! :smileysmileythumbsup:
Alright now this is simply ridiculous! While the rest of the world has received 2 major updates, we C6603 users are still stuck with the buggy 4.1.2 (10.1.1.A.1.253) firmware. What I fail to understand is that the lower variants ZL and C6602 (HSPA+) recieved them long back. Then why hasn't Sony released anything for the C6603 users. I mean it's their frigging "Flagship phone of the Year" for heaven's sake!
Besides as far as I know, the C6602 and C6603 variants are exactly identical and run the same piece of software. So why the delay?
Also before anyone tells me to shoot up a mail to the Sony Support Team, I already did that! And this is the reply I got:
Yeah, that's right! According to them, the C6603 variant was never released by them. I'm sure that the things I mentioned above were riduculous, but this one definitely takes the cake!
So just so you know, I've probably tried everything I could. I waited patiently for over a month, even wrote to their "good for nothing" customer support, but to no avail. Thus I am writing over here as a last resort, hoping that someone from Sony pays heed to our situation. It's almost as if they have disowned this device! *SMH*

Unfortunately we don't have any information on when software updates are released for specific markets.

I guess you're missing my point. I am not interested in the ETA. I just want to know whether we C6603 users will be getting any updates or has Sony completely forgotten that they had released a C6603 variant in India. Because going by the screenshot that I posted above, it sure looks like the latter.

I have a C6603 bought from Europe and I can confirm I received the latest update today. Thanks Sony!

What I checked was that his phone was intended for the India market. I can not check when updates will be available.

Well blow me a response from a mod about up dates. I guess there's a first time for everything

Great! Just great! Practically the entire globe has received the 4.2.2. update by now. We are probably the only Generic network who are still stuck with the buggy 4.1.2. Kudos Sony India!
