I can't update my phone to Android 7

Hello guys.
After I send my phone to the service, they changed android version to 5.1.1 from 7.1.1 and then I can't update my phone 7.1.1 again. 

How can I update?

P.s: I tried Xperia Companion and phone's update app.

Re: Update 7.1 xperia z3+

Hello Quester,

 

I am from Chennaim India. I have Z3+ with Android 7.0. I had a issue in my phone that apps getting minimized automatically. I thougt it would be some software issue, so i did factory restore, that didn't help me, then i though it would be screen guard issue, still it resolve. So i called Xperia Support, they said that try upating the Android to 7.1.2, but my phone says software is upto date with 7.0. I did repair the Software with Xperia Companion but no luck. This is my Customization Version 1295-0156_R4D. Could you please check and let me know, do i have a update for my phone. If yes, then how can i update, if no when can i expect the update. I am using Airtel.

Honestly: I have no Idea Slightly frowning Face

I think there are two ways: run a factory reset with no guarantee that it will work then. OR

Be lucky with a stable running Android Marshmallow. It seems Oreo is not as good as expected yet.

Have fun !

@ferhunde

 

If you have enough space and Xperia companion does not see any update, it means that for your customization number (each region, provider etc has a different software version number) there is no update released.

Re: My phone doesn't recognize Nougat or Oreo updates

Probably, but why? I mean is it fair that some phones do have an update and some don't?
