Re: 4.4.2 problems

Further investigation into these bugs shows that Sony, LG, HTC and sSamsung have bugs in KitKat 4.4.2 update.

 

So i guess it's off to the Android forums to see if these are in fact Google bugs are OEM bugs, lets hope it's not the latter.

 

Cheers for now.

Dude - pg 13 - I have given a guide for getting back to Jelly Bean. Did it myself last night coz I was sick of the ringtone bug. No need to root your phone and it works perfectly (y)

Decreased Sound Volume after 4.4 update

Hi,

After I update my Xperia Z1 with the new 4.4.2 update, my phone speaker sound volumes always get significantly decreased everytime after I received a phone call. I need to shut it down and turn it back on again to recover the phone sounds problem.

The sound problem is not my first time. Before the update, my app/game sound volume often gets slightly louder if there is any notifications sound.

Anyone experiencing this as well?

Re: Decreased Sound Volume after 4.4 update

Every next update makes it worse and worse than the one before. This is all terrible...

Re: Z1/Z1s 4.4.2 update issues

Just updated to 4.4.2, now I have the issue that the Google Play home screen always times out. Weirdly enough, I can swipe over and get to "my apps" and update apps that require updating.

Re: Z1/Z1s 4.4.2 update issues

Hi guys, in the interest of trying to give the best support possible, I have flashed my Z1 with

Xperia Z1 C6903 14.3.A.0.681 Commercial&Journalist

I will be testing and going through all the problems listed here to better understand and see if i get the same problems or if I ca replicate them.

 

Taking 1 for the team!

Re: Z1/Z1s 4.4.2 update issues

Hi,

 

A few hours ago I changed to 4.4.2 with a C6903

All ok till now, what I noted was that Google+ is trying to upload all the photos in the gallery again.

That keeps the phone working.

 

Regards.

Re: Z1/Z1s 4.4.2 update issues

In another brands of Android phone for not name it, the best practice in this kind of version upgrade is reset to factory and install all again.

Maybe is a good thing to do if you find issues.

I'm considering do it at the first bug that find.
