This is down to your network to release the firmware or if you are a generic user then some countries require all networks to authorise the update before generic devices will receive it


 

I repeat that as far as I am concerned this is just speculation because Sony does not explain the process for unbranded devices. Also I would like to understand if the approval of all operators is a legal requirement or something that Sony does of its own will to play nice with the big customers (the operators) penalising the small customers (us).

It's not speculation - you either believe me or not - Why not ask your networks what procedure they have in place and it's not Sony that make the rules but the networks and whatever body controls firmware in your country which isn't Sony

My posts are being censored because I wish to provide a link to others clearly showing a carrier rejecting Sony's firmware. Why is this? You guys tell us to look at the carriers as to why the firmware is not released yet, so we do. But now we can't share our findings?

Is lollipop firmware the same with other countries?

I flash my Z2 few days ago with baltic version of lollipop, today official lollipop arrived at my country. Is there any differences between these two version?

That's what Vodafone do because they like their own iteration - Judging by past releases they like to customize the firmware
