Stalled firmware updates

The last two firmware updates seem to have failed. 

47.1.A.5.51  which was supposed to fix our camera distortion problems, due 'mid November', never even made it to some UK phones.

 

Now 47.1.A.7.1 has stalled with only one German build having been updated.

 

Come on Sony, where is the support and fixes that we need to keep our phones fantastic?

Re: Stalled firmware updates

IMO the phone itself is pretty rubbish, and the software even worse. They should correct it ASAP.

Re: Xperia xz oreo update not received

You can first check using pc companion. If that didn't work, then use flashtool>xperiaFirm>

Then select your phone model and the firmware region. Make sure the firmware has the build number 41.3.A.0. 401 (oreo). Download it then flash it.

Re: Stalled firmware updates

My post about US variant stuck on 47.1.A.2.324 (August 5 update, released to US on November 3rd) got merged in the middle of general discussion about updates, but I decided to take a look at the firmware composition of G8441 based on BLX and unlocked UK variants.

 

[Removing my findings since they are not valid across vastly different regions, e.g. UK model won't even have modem configuration for US TMO, based on my tinkering with XZ1. I will need to dig deeper, but there is no other region running .324, so relilable diffing is not possible at the moment]

 

While release terms can be unpredicted, the lack of reasoning behind delayed updates hurts more. If the reason is that the modem crashes on X, Y, and Z network and fails to dial emergency numbers - that's a valid point to stop rollouts, but communicating the reason to end users will go a long way towards gaining user trust and loyalty.

 

Unfortunately, at this very moment, my trust level is quite different from 80% of users on this forum who live in the markets that get frequent software updates.

@Rut007

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 Xperia Companion.
