Xperia T update error with Bridge for Mac

I get the prompt I have a new update available, on the phone and on the BFM software. I go to update and after a minute or two of "initializing" I get an error message: Update failed!  There was an issue with the update engine.  Reason: Timed out waiting for engine to start. 

 

I am currently with 9.1.A.0.492 and trying to update to 9.2.A.0.295.  My carrier is Vidéotron

 

Thanks for the help!

Restart your mac > run Bridge > keep an eye on a pop up message

Re: Xperia T update error with Bridge for Mac

Hello, 

 

My Bridge version is 3.7.1 (3710)

 

I did what uliwooly suggested and the only pop-up I got was the prompt to update, with the same error message after a few minutes of initializing

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Re: Xperia T update error with Bridge for Mac

Hi UpmySleeves,

 

Ok, thank you for the information.

 

Since you have the newest version, could you please send me error logs so we can investigate your problem?

 

Here’s how to get error logs from Sony Bridge for Mac:
1. In BfM, hold the "alt" key down while selecting the "Phone" menu. Select "Clear logs" to remove all old logs and get a clean start
2. Reproduce the problem you're having, whether it's connecting the phone, importing photos, doing backup...
3. In BfM, hold the "alt" key down while selecting the "Phone" menu. Select "Export logs"
4. On the computers desktop there should now be a file named "SonyBridgeForMacLogs_[date].zip
5. PM that file to me or post the contents here 

 

Best Regards,

 

David
