Android Pie update (47.2.A.6.30) renders NFC unusable on Xperia XZ1 Compact

After installing the latest update (Custom UK, 47.2.A.6.30) NFC stopped working. I asked support to help, they advised me to use Sony Companion app and perform a "repair" which is a clean reinstall of Android (wiping off all data, settings, etc...). I've done it, no change, NFC is still not working. I wasted hours to re-install and setup all my apps and restore environment, no change. NFC is still not working. It shows as switched on, but it can't read any NFC tags, Google Pay stopped working too, practically anything that requires NFC is useless.


DO NOT INSTALL SONY'S ANDROID PIE UPDATE, unless you are ok to go without NFC.
