Remote Device Lab OS Versions Incorrect, Cannot update to 4.4.4

I mistakenly posted this in the Z2 forums, so I am reposting it here where I am more likely to get support on the issue.


I am trying to bug test the Z1 Compact and Z2 Xperia phones using the remote device lab, I had finally got my app working but a user has told me they are still experiencing the blank screen on their Z2. I checked the versions and found that despite the launch page of the remotedevicelab stating that the OS versions are 4.4.4 when checking the phones from the settings page they are infact 4.4.2. This wouldn't be a problem if it werent for the fact that you can't update Sony phones without having the device plugged into a PC.


here are the screen grabs




My app on the user's phone



what I see using remote lab after removing scrollview layout


Fix seems to work on Z2 and Z1 however I still get a blank screen on the Z1 Compact in the device lab
