I have already installed nova launcher but that is not the solution. Having a new launcher means granting immense lot of permissions, recustomizing everything again.. And another annoying thing, not every widget works with these launchers. For example, with Xperia launcher I can have one settings widgets for all major day to day setting, can't do with nova.. And there are many more of such widgets.. Recustomizing everything is such a pain. Spent 2 hours and am still not completely done! Looking for alternatives doesn't solve the problem! And for sure is not simple!

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

Hello Everybody,

 

Since the update 4.4.4, my earphones (Sony XBA-H3) et those that came with the phone are not longer recognized. I CANT lister music or radio. Also, my battery time has decreased and I have no longer  sms and email sound notification.

 

I am a lawyer and I wrote a hard letter to the customer service in France to ask them the way to roll back to the 4.4.2. and fix all the problems.

 

My opinion is: I bought a luxury mobile that worked perfeclty well before the update. I never ask for it. Today I can just note that this update makes the phone not working properly and cause me prejudice (I use it as professional but it is the same for any use).

 

I think all people who posted there are in the same angry situation.

 

I wait for the answer the customer service will give: if i am not satisfied, I will sue them and ask for damages. I keep you informed.

 

If anyone is interested, let me know.

Surprised how many people don't know how to downgrade or roll back to 4.4.2. A simple google search would give you the information. The program is called Flashtool. Sony has an official one I believe (Emma Flashtool) , but there are 3rd party ones that do the exact same. It simply flashes a stock firmware file (ftf) of your choice (if you want 4.4.2, then you're looking for firmware 314) which will wipe everything and restore it to a factory state.

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

Just got my 4.4.4 update today (EE in UK)
First impression - icons are huge and I really don't like it. Never really noticed icon size on any phone i have ever had but these are just silly and need to be fixed.

Re: Xperia Z2 4.4.4 issues

The UI icons are HORRIBLE!!! My eyes are struggling to adjust to the MASSIVE icons! Very bad basic lack of graphic design proportion principles. Urgh!!!
