Hi guys I do it my xperia xz1 compact device bootloader lock open but now I can't get it back

I want to close again 

Because I have green camera photo problem please help me 

 


 

You will have to try a third-party workaround such as xperifix. Sony makes it pretty clear that when you unlock your bootloader, they won't support your camera anymore.

 

You could also try installing the AOSP build that doesn't have Sony's proprietary camera app.

Is there a way to encrypt the SD card on the xz1c? Or it needs a third party app to do this?


 

Do *not* attempt to encrypt the SD card if you want it to work with any non-Sony apps. Sony's SD card encryption implementation been broken for the past year on multiple firmwares including XZ1c. In the latest firmware, it will claim to be encrypting the SD card... and then not encrypt anything! It's outrageous.

Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1 Compact!

Hi, I have a little question, when I get either under de sun or a place with too many light, the color black on the screen gets washed out, even if the automatic brightness is off, someone else having this, is normal? Or it will be fixed soon? 

 

Additional info : already reboot the phone and used the xperia companion fix and didn't work.

And when I block the sensor gets back to the regular color

Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1 Compact!

I think this is generally a problem with all LCD screens, not Sony's in particular. I think the idea is to have as many objects on the screen visible in the bright Sunshine as is possible. The only thing I can suggest is to take off your sunglasses and crank up the brightness to the top setting. Everything becomes a bit washed out looking, but this is the price we pay for screen legibility in the bright sunshine.

Re: Quick questions, quick replies; ask anything about the Xperia XZ1 Compact!

My images in MMS are very low quality, they size are between 70-130 kB instead of typical 250 kB (like for example in my Xperia T or Xperia E4 or other phones with MMS capabilty). Anyone experiencing that? Could this be problem with my carrier? Or to be precise network settings for XZ1 Compact send by my carrier?

  1. Go to https://xpericheck.com/
  2. Click the ? icon at the top of the page and enter in your IMEI to get your devices CDA
  3. Go to https://xpericheck.com/device/G8341 and check the current build number (listed as 'version') for that same CDA

If the build number matches that of what is on your phone (check in Settings > About Phone > Build Number) then it means that is the latest version the carrier of that device has released (and you'll have to wait).

 

If the build number on your phone doesn't match that of the current version for your CDA listed on the site then you'll want to raise with Sony support.

@2lazy

Open your Google Play app, and open Settings from the side menu (pull from the left). You'll find the setting for "Auto-update apps".
