hanging update to 5.1.1.

I have a problem on my z3 compact.

Phone tells me there is an update to 5.1.1.  I download it and try to install it but it looks they do nothing.

It runs and runs and runs ... since 4 Days. Reboot doenst help. It starting again.

 

Because the ugly phonebook i didnt want to reset the whole phone. 

 

Install via Computer is no solution, because sony only support windows and mac.

 

Any Ideas or hints?

5.1.1 it's a major update, you should try to borrow a computer, as far as OTA, if your connection is too slow it will take quite a while 

 

PC Companion (PCC)

 

 

Bridge (for Mac)

re-installing the latest update will smooth things out, there's no other way, other than stopping by your local Xperia Care
