Try to uninstall and reinstall Xperia companion. See if it helps.

Re: How to upgrade to Oreo?

It is fresh install just for this purpose (new laptop), so I don't think that reinstalling can help.

I try to do it in other machine/network environment later.

Then try, there is a choice somwhere, device not recognised.

That will do the trick.

Re: How to upgrade to Oreo?

I've seen some different opinions on here. On xperia x you go to the system heading then to software update. Swipe across to system update & download from there. It is a huge download & seems to have had some problems. I must be getting old, most of the people here are mentioning things I don't know about.

@h0m39url15 not an option here since user is on Concept track, which ended, meaning no more updates on that.

 

Therefore it requires preferably an Xperia companion repair option, or flashtool.

@schetz - So concept for xperia x is an experimental program that uses stock technology and it needs some type of uograde/update from Sony itself. Never heard of this until I googled it. Thanks for that though schetz I'm a total newbie & can only cover basics lol.

Hi,
Seems it is not network problem, or Xperia Companion. Just it doesn't work.

Maybe exist posiblity to flash Oreo without unlocking device?

Re: How to upgrade to Oreo?

@barManIf it doesn't work, you could try Flashtool. It's a bit more manual, but still easy.

Some details here

 

@h0m39url15yep, something like that.

Since inTouch community/forum closed, if you want , //shameless plug// , you could read a bit more on unofficial wiki a some of us created back in a day.

Re: How to upgrade to Oreo?

Hey @barMan

Just try again.

First backup with Xperia Companion.

With your battery charged for more than 80%

Phone switched on

Connect to computer

Start Xperia Companion

Choose Software repair

In the lower left corner you can check mark the option: My device cannot be detected or is a SmartWatch 3

Click next in the lower right corner

On the left choose Xperia Phone or tablet

In the lower right corner click Next

Agree that you have your Google account name & password and click next

(Even better: go back and delete your Google Account from your phone before you do the software repair. Once forgotten your phone will be blocked and you will have to go through a procedure at Google to re-acclaim your account on your phone which will take a few days built-in delay)

Either your phone will be detected or you will have to choose your phone yourself. (this is where I don't want to go further anymore because I don't want to reïnstall the lot)

If you get an error here then you should follow @schetz 's advice and use Flashtool.
