The Radio is not Working after update

The Radio app is not working anymore after updating to 4.4.4 (167 firmware)!
The scan comes and then the radio app is also seems to be working, but can't hear anything!

Simply the radio app is there, but nothing comes out of it!
Anyone know why and how to fix!??

New update looks awfull

Since i updated my phone to Xperia Z2 Android 4.4.4 23.0.1.A.0.167 i noticed some changes

- Bigger icon sizes

- Bold hour display in lock screen

- when i have multiple apps in a directory on my home screen suddenly when i click it 

  its white instead of the darker transparent map

 

In my opinion it loos awfull, so is there any way to change this? if it cant, sony plz make things

optional. it gives my phone a less smooth look and even a bit ugly in my opinon.

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

Hello, just updated my z2 yesturday to 4.4.4 and noticed the sound quality has gone down noticeably when listening to music through the mdr-nc31e/nc31 ear phones as well as through the speakers! Anyone have the same issue?

Anyone know how to "downgrade" the operating system from 4.4.4 back to 4.4?

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

@Binstar and @colective

Try pushing the red button under the cover for the SIM-slot and USB-port for a few seconds and see if that helps.
If the issue remains you may want to try to repair the firmware in the phone using PC Companion or Bridge for Mac but please note that this will reset the phone.

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

Hi, just downloaded the new software......pleased to say that everything is fine, i use a different launcher/icons so the larger icons dont affect me but did revert back to see what they look like & think they look not too bad....will have a good play around with any other new things later but so far it all looks fine :smileysmileywink:

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

Update to my previous post on Monday:

An update on status to my previous post:
I did a repair phone using pcc last night and tested stamina mode today. Same thing happened. The messages are not coming in until I open the apps. I have sms, line and whatsapp in the exception list but nothing is coming through until I launch the app.

Sony pls fix this else stamina mode is useless

 

 

I think it is not only an issue in stamina mode but even with stamina mode off as well.

I have a few encounters today, notifications are not coming in from those instant messengers app (e.g. Whatsapp and Line) when the phone screen is off. Open when I am in the app, the messages which is suppose to arrive hours ago suddenly all come in at the same time ... Its not my connectivity issue, since Z2 is telling me i am having LTE connection full signal and google chrome is working fine ..

 

come on Sony, what is going now ..

Tethering no longer works since update

Hi, ive just downloaded android 4.4.4 update for my Z2 and it seems to have broke tethering. I can enable wifi tethering and my laptop connects to it but theres no Internet connection. And its the same for usb tethering. Both were working before update. My network is 3 and have 2gb bandwidth. Laptop is win7 64 bit home premium. Is anyone else having this problem or managed to resolve it?

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

Camera is laggy and horrible. Icons are far too large...


Those are the only problems I've noticed so far (but I haven't even tried to use my phone yet).
