Re: SW update out of purchasing region

You don't need to be in Japan to update the software but as it's from Japan you will not get the update until it's released there. Before we can release an update we may need local and operator approvals so when a device gets an update depends on where it was sold.


It might be possible to change the firmware by yourself using 3:rd party tools but it's not something i would recommend and such actions may void your warranty. If you still want to do that i recommend that you check


I took the liberty of moving your post into your existing thread since it's related.
