Re: 4.4.2 problems for xperia z zl and zr

Now on to bugs in 4.4.2

1. Google Play services drain battery in rapid manner,
2. Google location services stop working after some time - couple of hours,
3. Settings menu could be smoother,
4. Live wallpaper could be smoother,
5. can't move apps to SD card.

Xperia Z firmware update 10.5.1.A.0.283 cause com.android.phone crash

Today September 10, I updated the firmware on my xperia Z (C6603), and from that time the com.android.phone process does not work. Phone loses connection to the telephone network, is heated and the battery dies very quickly.

 

Please I need a solution. I already tried to restore factory settings, but the problem remains.

[FIXED]ZR: Cameras and flash led not working on 4.4.4

I received the 4.4.4 update today and updated with PC Companion, but after that, I noticed that cameras (both rear and front) aren't working, and also the Flash LED.
When I try to open the camera app, I get an "Unfortunately, Camera has stopped" message.
I've already tried to make a clean firmware install, but it still doesn't work.
It used to work great on 10.5.A.0.230 though, so I'll flash that firmware back for now until someone helps me to solve this...
Xperia C5502

Any help is appreaciated, thanks in advance.
EDIT: nevermind, managed to fix it.

Re: Battery Drain? 4.4.4? Android System?

same goes with me. Basically android system for Sony smartphone is the main part of it. I have used xperia mini pro and same problems. I own a Samsung smartphone this problem does not appears. I'm not sure if Sony will tell us to wait for 3 days and above for the system to adapt. Confused
