Disable retail mode

Hello,

 

I've tried to enter any code found in the forum to disable the retail demo app.

But it didn't work !

Anyone know the right service code or procedure to disable this mode on Z3 compact tablet WIFI 

 

Thanks in advance

Regards

Arnaud

if the code doesn't work then return it to the store.

Do you have a demo device - Dial *#*#7378423#*#* then open Service info then Software info and reply with the customization number

Re: Disable retail mode

My Bad ...entering the code did work after all

 

I've done it at least three times. I don't know if I mistyped it before or something else ...

 

Anyway after entering the code correctly, the Contacts Apps closed (it didn't the previous attempts) and the retail demo do not appear anymore when charging...Great !

PS : On a WIFI tablet, to make the dialer appears, refer to this post :http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Tablet-Z/Retail-Demo/m-p/325563#M117

Re: Disable retail mode

I installed a 3rd party dialer app from the play store which works just as good

So according to my list the latest firmware version available to you is 23.1.A.1.28/R3C and you have the Frech Generic firmware
