No Android Kitkat 4.4.4 so far at least. Forget about lollipop

Hi all,

 

I got the Kitkat 4.4.2 but after that I did not get any other update so far. Nexus and other devices got even lollipop and Xperia even not rolling Kitkat 4.4.4. Sony is promising for the lollipop in the early 2015 but I guess it will be like kitkat. 6-7 months after the Nexus got Kitkat, Sony released the update for Xperia Z series. Please help me in getting at least 4.4.4. So far no updates after 4.4.2

 

Best Regards

What's so special about 4.4.4 other than it was a bug fix that was implemented into 4.4.2 by Sony in later releases - Those that have 4.4.4 missed the bug fix - Believe me or not but that's all it was and is - A plain and simple bug fix

10.5.1.A.0.292

Anyone got offered this update on their Z phones? Any user feedback (eg, battery drain still there, lags etc etc)?

Got offered this via an OTA update. Haven't yet tried PC Companion on the computer, but I'd assume that it'll be there.

Re: i cant upload my Xperia ZR

Try performing a system repair as this will often fix issues after an upgrade - This will factory reset your phone

Switch off your phone and unplug from Pc (Hold volume up and power for around 10 seconds)
Start PC Companion and select Support zone then Update my phone/tablet then in Blue Repair my phone/tablet and follow the onscreen instructions - When prompted connect your phone still switched off holding volume down or back button - This should start the repair or reformat process

If you are using Windows 8/8.1 or a 64bit operating system then adjust the settings for PC Companion and run in compatibility mode and chose Windows 7 or XP

Xperia z not updating to 4.4 kitkat

Hi, recently I bought a Sony Xperia Z C6603 and it was only up to android 10.3.1.A.0.244 in the software updates, so it was way behind. I tried to update the software to 10.3.1.A.2.67 but it just rebooted and said that it could not install. so i tried again and again. Ive had the phone for a week now and I've tried updating the phone once every day. Something is not working. I tried everything that was suggested by Sony for other people who had the same problem. Still nothing has worked in trying to update my phone. when I go on to PC companion, the app says that the phone is "up-to-date" with the software. ive tried everything. can someone please help me!

Re: Xperia z not updating to 4.4 kitkat

You can manually flash another country's firmware however to answer your question - Before generic handsets get the update the networks have to all authorise the update, I'm not saying they have to release the update but they do have to authorise it - Then Sony will be authorised to release it to generic devices - So before blaming Sony blame your country's networks

Xperia Z update

Is the android 4.4 available for the Xperia Z?  I tried updating it thru the phone and thru the Sony companion and no luck.  Neither will find the update.

 

Is there another way to update?

How do I upgrade my Xperia Z to KitKat?

How do I upgrade my Xperia Z to KitKat?  The phone says that it has the latest upgrade now at android 4.3 Do I have to Root it?  How.  Does Rooting void my warranty?
