This update has destroyed the complete experience on my Xperia Z. Till 4.2.2 eveything was just fine. Now it hangs everytime I try to use it saying "Xperia Home is not responding. Would you like to close it?" after some period of being frozen, it just restarts. Now my phone is unusable I can so nothing with it because it continuously freezes and restarts.
I am surprised that this thread has been running for quite a long time and Sony has done nothing to fix this. This update was waiting on my Updates queue for a long time now and I didn't do it fearing some problem like this. And, no doubt, it has happened. I didn't expect this from Sony. I'm very disappointed and will never trust them on mobiles again. Now I will probably reset the phone and revert back to the base version and never run an update again. I don't want to run with this phone to the Service Center now as if I have to other work in this life.

@alexdon, I'm trying to run this Sony Update Service. I hope it helps. My Xperia Z has become a useless block of brick.
I suggest you to repair software with sony update service.

Now everytime I restart the mobile, it doesnt seem to be able to load the sounds. I have the default ringer tone selected but it doesn't ring. When I try to open the Settings -> Sounds -> Call Sound it hangs. This update is a mess.

Now I'm again running the Sony Software Update on my laptop and it says there's another 960 MB update. This is pathetic.
