Re: Install C1905 firmware in C1904?

I asked the same with sony and the mailed me like this...


Greetings from Sony Xperia support.

We value the importance of your concern and here to assist you.

As per your email, we would like to inform you that updating the update centre application will be consider as a rooting as Sony does not support rooting of the handset. Once you root your handset, your handset will not be consider under warranty and Sony will not provide any services for the same.

So, we would request you to wait for notification in your handset as you will get notification in update centre application after notification you can update your phone through PC-Companion


So I decided to stick with 4.1 and waiting for the update to be rolled in india..

rooting is a different ball game altogether.

Sony said so because they donot want people to update untill and unless they have officially released the update in their respective countries.

Sounds like some sort of misunderstanding. Updating the phone with PC Companion, Bridge for Mac, Update Service or Update Centre (in the phone) will not root the phone or void the warranty.

Updating the phones software using 3:rd party tools like Flashtool might void your warranty and is not recommended.
