Re: Unable to Update to .205 via PC companion!

same here, from ontario using Rogers, and there hasn't been any updates for my xperia sp either. im still stuck with the old firmware 12.1.a.0.266 on android 4.3. many issues with my phone and its become difficult to use my phone. all we can do is just wait until it comes out, unfortunately..

 

the response from sony was this :

 

"Unfortunately we are unable to confirm a specific date for any particular firmware release due to the nature of the approval process. For further information regarding the approval process please see here."

 

(can't post the link for some reason, but basically it gives basic information on the process of updating)

Re: xperia SP .205 Update! Still not got yet!

maybe your phone is not made for indian region. Go to system settings and find the customization version. Like i am in indian region but from the cust version i learned that my phone is using a firmware made for taiwan. And i haven't got the update yet.

Re: xperia SP .205 Update! Still not got yet!

I just updated mine via OTA 2 days ago.

New firmware build.12.1.A.1.205 isn't really a stable version. Though the LED light during calls and Bravia Engine 2 are fixed, yet the batt drains too fast. And the phone gets a bit warm.

The update of 205 for taiwan is not released yet. Hopefully it will be available soon. You can download the xperia update checker to find if the update is released or not. Slightly smiling Face

Same here in Calgary, AB.

Rogers? Yup

Still on 12.1.a.0.266? Yup

4.3 crippled my Xperia SP? Yup

BS? Yup, but optimistic about .205 as this phone was awesome when I first got it and if it can get back to it's former glory I'll be thrilled.
