Re: Android 6 When are we getting Marshmallow? Which Xperias will be updated? etc

A few days ago I updated my Xperia Z3 Compact to USA customized version 23.5A.0.570 downloading the firmware from xperifirm and flashtool, I tried marshmallow 6.0.1 and it's performance is excellent. Yesterday I received the update automatically via OTA to 23.5A.0.575. I'm in Colombia and my operator has not validated beyond Lollipop 5.1. This upgrade path is a way that I suggest those who are still waiting.

Apparently the Z3c unlocked for North America/LatAm can install Marshmallow via the PCC. The available version is v.23.5.A.0.575.

I am personally not going to install now, I'll wait the OTA... Just to see if someone complain about it Slightly smiling Face

Z2 still on Lolipop

Hi,

having an unlocked Z2 I never expected to have to wait so much for theMarshmallows update.

I live in Portugal, Europe, and even the portuguese Sony Xperia site says the most current version for my phone is 6.0.0.

PC companion doesn´t find updates and if I go to definitions ->software update-> update I´m also told my software is up to date.

Do you know whats going wrong?

Thanks!

Yet to receive Marshmellow Update

Hello!

 

So I've come to understand that the Marshmellow update for the Z2 tablet has been out for a couple of weeks now. However I've yet to receive a notification about an update on my device. I've tried opening the update menu and refreshing to check for new updates. Also tried checking for updates on PC Companion. No luck.

 

Any help is much appreciated for those of us that are still left out. Thanks!

Re: Z2 still on Lolipop

@André_Rangel

Updates are released gradually and timing will differ between markets. Unless there is an official statement from Sony, the exact timing of update to your market will not be available here or anywhere else. Keep checking periodically on PC Companion.

 

To make it more clear for you: it's not about purchase or origin country, it's about a specific character of your mobile/tablet called "customization version". You can check this version by dialing the code *#*#7378423#*#* the tap on "Software info", if you want me to check if this specific customization version has the update released or not I can help you with that.

Z3v marshmallow?

Any chance at all that this phone will get the android firmware. I know that it just got android 5 and that is great and all but I would like to see android 6 on the phone. I called Verizon and spent like 20 mins or so talking to them and got no where. They are pointing the fingers at sony for not making and sending them an update for this phone. They did try and sell me a Samsung phone and I don't want a Samsung phone. I want a sony phone so that it works with my other things in the house. Is there any plan what so ever to have marshmallow on the z3v? The phone can handle it so I don't see what the problem is. Thanks all.

Firmware updates or the lack thereof

I want Marshmallow on my devices NOW. This is not acceptable to leave me vulnerable to the world at large when there are updates and security available from Google.  IF Sony is unable to give us the updates, which will soon include Android N as well, then we will have to switch brands to either Nexus or to Huawei so that we can be assured of timely updates. As much of a Sony fan as I am I cannot further support a company who seems happy not to support me in return.  MARSHMALLOW NOW!!!
