No issues here with single-sim (G8141), all works fine after update.

Same issue with GPS icon but also my WiFi on both bands has been a nightmare from the second I installed this update, wasn't perfect before but now its just awful, have tried everything even full factory reset but still the same, all other tech in the house work fine.

Hi all !

 

In other post it was one person reported that the 3G , 4G problem was back, can you confirm this. And is the Bluetooth problem fixed that cause it hang, (eg. cannot enable this, has to restart the phone)

very annoying.

Official Sony answer: "We dont give a sht! Haha!"

I wrote about this problem to my local support, as always - i shoud repair my software with Companion. I did, and ofcourse it does not help. Seems Sony do not know about this issue as they are not reading this forums.

No problem with the 3g/4g just wifi, won't even switch between 2.4ghz and 5ghz even if there's an issue, all other tech is fine.

XZP-G8142-47.1.A.12.34 - same problem baseband version 8998-8998.gen.prodQ-00197-20 kernel version 4.4.78-perf+ BuildUser@BuildHost #1 Thu Dec 14 10:43:20 2017. GPS location notification always comes back after 24-26 hrs of reboot every time. Many people have reported - not seen any response from official Sony team support yet. Need to wait to see if next patch solves the issue.

I have this problem too , I have the single sim variant and I've tried two different firmwares (one generic (customized it) and one from my carrier(cosmote gr))
