Re: Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

Hi @superjoe,

 

 

I have a Malaysian Xperia XA1 Ultra, and I do not have an update/upgrade available for my smartphone yet... Sometimes it can take a bit of time after the e-mail has come out for the update to appear.

 

I do wonder if the unlocked bootloader will have any effect on update/upgrade notification though? You might need to wait for one of the other Community Team members to clarify that, as I haven't done that on my Android devices.

Re: Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

Thanks mate for your reply. Unlocked bootloader is my silly mistake. Should not do that. I thought it same like pure android phone like Nexus.

Re: Z3

Do you have an Xperia Z3 or an Xperia Z3+, @Nadi_abdeen?

 

According to this page, Sony are not planning on making Android 7.0 ("Nougart") available for the Xperia Z3.

Re: new software updates

It is yes and no, because of Qualcomm

Re: new software updates

Hi @harry95,

 

 

The most recent upgrade for the Xperia Z5 was Android 7.0 ("Nougart"), and Sony have since confirmed that the Xperia Z5 will not be getting upgraded to Android 8.0 ("Oreo")... As for security updates, that is something Sony decide on a case-by-case basis - because the Xperia Z5 is at the end of its lifecycle though (two years is pretty old in the world of smartphones), it's unlikely you will see any future updates either.

Hi.

 

Need help. I received email from Sony that new software update have been released. But when i try to check my  software update it say 'Your Device Is Up To Date'. Try to update via PC Companion but it say 'Cannot Check Update'. FYI, my phone is Malaysia set and i already unlocked bootloader (my silly mistake). 


As i know rooted smartphone (bootloader unlock definitely void warrnty as i know) have trouble with update (in some forum i read that need unroot if you want to update, but i'm not practic on this, so i'm not 100% trusted in this)... Altogether I don't think that from Sony will help you in this, coz you void warranty after root (unlocked bootloader). But this is just my opinion, i'm not from Sony and maybe as Gregoryopera siad you, maybe someone from Sony support team will explain you how to get update and ect. Slightly smiling Face
