Re: Downgrade Z3 compact (and others) from Lollipop to KitKat

That's exactly what I looking for. The z3 compact's display is not functionality with marshmallow 6.0.1. Problems with back buttom and home. I need return to lollipop. Otherwise, I can't expect more for Sony. Maybe marshmallow works with z3, but in compact is not working properly. Help.

Re: Downgrade Z3 compact (and others) from Lollipop to KitKat

I too would dearly love to get rid of Lollipop and return to KitKat. I loved my phone and how it "behaved" before Lollipop, never for one minute thought that updating the software would make me hate it!! What they've done with the sound/notifications is horrible - you used to be able, with 2, clicks, go from sound (with vibrate) to no sound no vibrate! Now you have to go round the houses and from what I can see/find you can't even have no sound/no vibrate! AND to make matters worse, this has impacted on Sony smart connect which no longer does what it's supposed to, automatically, once set up.

 

Whoever thought that making the sound/notifications bit more complicated was a good idea wants their head looking at.

 

I now have to look at finding the correct version of KitKat (ideally for o2 in the UK)
