Security patch

Hi, I am not receiving security updates. It states Android 8.0.0 + patch 1 october 2017. The support tool states there are no updates.

 

I want a secure phone, how do I get to update?

Re: Security patch

I tried it, same response: your phone is up to date. And yes the firmware itself is up-to-date, but the security patches are not.

I am stuck at 

47.1.A.2.3748.0.02017-10-01Fri Sep 29 04:06:03 JST 2017

while I should be at:

47.1.A.8.498.0.02017-12-01Thu Dec 7 04:00:27 JST 2017

 

Is there a way to force it?

Re: Security patch

No, there is no way to force update within the same region to a firmware that has not been released. The moderators most likely will move this thread to common Security patches. How? When? How often? thread.

 

What is your region?

Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Security Patch Question

Hi, 

 

I was wondering if the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium will get a security patch dated past September 1? October, December and Jan updates have been released for Android. A lot of people do require these security updates for various reasons.

Re: No updates....

Updates are released quite frequently from Google and Sony, but your region and carrier may require modifications that takes some time to accomplish.

 

You may use pages like these to look for available release for your phone:
