Re: No updates....

You will then have to ask Vodafone Spain for any reason why you have no updates.

-Perhaps try/switch to another carrier?

Re: 🇺🇸 Stuck on August 5 Security Update

I'm on US firmware, and I'm seeing the same thing on my XZ1 Compact. I'd say that it must be related to problems certifying the T-Mobile VoLTE/WiFi calling stuff, as my XA1 is still getting regular security updates. As far as past devices go, I'm not aware of any that supported VoLTE or WiFi calling on US carriers. (Someone can correct me if I"m wrong.)

 

I understand that it's hard for Sony to prioritize a relatively small user base here in the US, and I'm willing to have a little patience and tolerate some bugs for awhile in exchange for the extra T-Mobile support, but 6 months is definitely pushing it when there are so many security issues to worry about. I admit to being a bit of a Sony fanboy, and I very much prefer their flagships over the Nexus/Pixel line, but the peace of mind that comes with knowing I'm always up to date (with a no-fuss fingerprint reader) is starting to pull me back in the Google direction Slightly frowning Face

Because we are still running on July 2016 patch (seriously 😡)+ bugs and I don't think so sony will be giving nought or oreo update for m4 aqua. Atleast they should provide security updates.

Re: Security updates missing

@revzracer

Updates are released gradually and timing will differ between markets. Unless there is an official statement from Sony, the exact timing of update to your market will not be available here or anywhere else. Keep checking periodically on Xperia Companion.

Customized CE1 Xperia XZ - Security patch missing

Hi,

 

now it happends the second or maybe the third time, that all provider branded phones already got new updates but the update servers for customized CE1 didn't have the new updates with security patches.

 

Is the process to roll out the updates missing customized CE1? Maybe i have to buy next time a phone which is provider locked and from another vendor, because these phone got updates much faster than Customized CE1.

 

Please can someone manually copy the update package also to the Customized CE1 servers,....

 

Thanks,

regards

Herbert

Re: Security updates missing

Waiting? For how long?

Google sents out an security update every month... It's  to important to be thinking... "It will come in good time" ...

If the policy is not addressed this will be my last Sony device.

The data the phones contain nowadays need the protection.
