Thommo, thank you for this trick. I have customization version 1289-7528-R4B. What region is it and when to wait the update?

@speller if you are interested
The Flashtool link in that guide is old so use the new one here
Follow this guide to manually flash but use the .ftf you created above and not the one listed - Everything else is the same for all Xperia devices

Rickard Thank you. API access camera for third-party applications... It's really important.

Yesterday I have FINALLY received the update notification on my Z3C and installed it. Posting this topic for bug reports and feedback on the update, as I already experience several issues.
Also, not sure how to check if ART is working, but most apps run a lot faster on 5.0

Looked photo examples with Z3. On the new firmware. This is terrible! Strong sharping, poor noise reduction (Colored noise on the first photo) ... How is it possible to produce a release? Not improved. Nothing, absolutely.
