Hey man, it depends on your country or region and carrier.

 

I'm in South Africa, I recently flashed my firmware using xperifirm and newflasher to the latest firmware and Android version which is pie. Security patch is November. By doing this I will get all my updates quicker as it is now not specific to my region.

 

If you want check out XDA developers for how to flash your firmware. It's farelly easy bud.

Scorn and ridicule this statement.

 

Why?

 

Just look at it yourself: All regions have received the update, whereas others like Customized DE just do not, although this version was always one of the first in the rollout.

 

So please say something more accurate than just this short default statement (or: customer shut up, buy our products and be happy if it will power on, but give us your money)

@PC-MASTER

No, you don't need to reset your phone just to receive the update. Updates are released gradually and timing will differ between markets, so keep checking periodically on Xperia Companion.

Again the same! 

 

Your link is not accessible - it's like giving a kid an ice and before the kid is getting it you take the ice away and laugh.

 

Wait for your explanation why the link is unavailable. Let me answer for you:

 

"Xperia Companion is available gradually and timing will differ between markets, so keep checking periodically by klicking on the dead link"

 

=> Right?

@schickel

Sorry if the link was not working, it should be fixed now.

However, no need to use curse words or be abusive towards others while posting your thoughts on the forum. We are here to help each other, and if there were a better answer than what I posted I'd gladly use it.
