Re: wifi hotspot wont work after lollipop update

@cguy

 

No one knows, you have 2 options

 

1. wait for the update to be approved and released in your country, if your phone is or was locked to a carrier/network branded, it will be up to them to approve and release the update

 

or

 

2. manually update your phone with Flashtool

Re: battery charging and drainage issues after update to lollipop 5.0.2

You can install a fresh copy of Lollipop by doing a Phone repair from PC Companion, this will do a clean installation of the latest firmware and will also wipe your internal memory. Don't forget to back up your data before you proceed.

Open PC companion -> Support zone -> Phone/tablet software update -> Repair my phone/tablet (blue link style). Follow the steps given, do not connect your phone until prompted to press volume down while plugging USB cable.

Re: battery charging and drainage issues after update to lollipop 5.0.2

If you just updated your software I do believe the phone battery will drain faster in the beginning. Take a look at the link below.

However, I do agree with Quester. Try reinstalling lollipop with pc Companion as he and uliwooly suggested.

Re: Z1 issues after 5.0 update

the phone was becoming more and more stable (and battery lasting better) until today...

 

5 days on from upgrade and...

 

still seeing the odd sudden shutdown

 

the music player is "dull" for 2 minutes then suddenly the music "comes to life"   - as if the equaliser is dulled then turned up on all settings...

 

the phone overheats very very quickly using the camera apps like "motiongrapgh" and displays the "device getting hotter" warning...

 

 

Z3+ looking like it will be ordered end of August unless there are signs of an Autumn replacement coming...

Re: Z1 issues after 5.0 update

Wifi keeps dropping out on both Z1 and Z1 compact. Everything else is OK, sort of. Did a restore 2 days ago. At least that made the excessive battery drain and heating go away...

 

So it's 2 days after a restore via PC companion, now what do you suggest?

Re: Z1 issues after 5.0 update

just seen that another version of the o/s has been certified...    perhaps my .270 will soon get replaced?

 

otherwise will have to waste a lot of time "factory resetting"  to try and solve the show stoppers...

 

1)  heating issue that starts soon after "music" app is used

2) the music app is "quiet/muffled" for a couple of minutes before then becoming "loud"  as if the equaliser etc dont work straight away

3) the camera is near useless - at least any of its apps are, as it begins warning of high temps very quickly after launching

 

and some daft annoyances...

 

such as)   while i can set notification noises that are mpeg files for gmail, sms, whatsapp...  i cant for the email app...  it allows me to pick one and then it just reverts back to pixiedust or something.
