@AtomicEdge

Sony still didn't announce if there's going to be an 5.1.1 update or not for the Z3+/Z3+ Dual

Re: i cant update my z3 dual to 5.1

It could be possible because of root, Is your bootloader unlocked?

You can also flash latest firmware for your device with flashtool.

You have answered your own question as to why you can't update

 

Your firmware has been modified due to rooting regardless of whether or not you unlocked your bootloader

Not getting lollipop - not even notification

Hello,

My Z3 compact won't update to 5.1 nor 5.0. I'm still stuck at 4.4 and I am not getting a notification to upgrade software. Not on the phone itself nor by PC Companion. It says I have the latest software.
2 Weeks ago I contacted local support here in Belgium and the person I talked to was a total douche, saying I would get 5.1 in a week or 2 but he evaded my question on why I still didn't receive 5.0. When asking him some tech questions he had no idea what I was talking about.
So I'm hesitant to contact them again since that didn't fix my issue.

Altough he mentioned that updates are linked to IMEI numbers. My IMEI is
software version 4.4.4    23.0.A.2.93  software - ID : D5803 R4B


Hope someone can help me out.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Not getting lollipop - not even notification

Updates need to be authorised by your network or country before Sony can release it to you so if you don't have it then some sort of network type governing body hasn't authorised it

How about unroot your phone then try to update and see if its working?

Have you contacted your local Carrier/network?

You won't find any info here, contact your local Xperia care

 

http://support.sonymobile.com/global-en/contactUs/

 

but keep in mind that if your phone is or was locked to a carrier network it's up to them to approve and release the update, not Sony.
