Have you tried following the instructions to change the profile to 1.4 as found here: https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-XZ1-Compact/Bluetooth-issue-after-update/td-p/1289568/page/2 ?
Please report back if it worked or not.
Has anyone noticed how Xperia's icon designs went down from artistic 3D to plain and ugly? What is happening to the creators/designers? I actually think that the former designs of the default icons (Music, Album, Video, Playstation) are better than the current ones.
I think it has more to do with losing a lot of theming capabilities with Oreo than anything else. If I would have known that themes were not going to work in Oreo,I would not have let my device update.
I own many Android smart phones and tablets. Several Nexus devices in both the tablet and phone category, OnePlus devices from the original "one" to the Plus5 and even some LG and Huawei phones. Most of the Nexus and OnePlus Devices are running Oreo. Theming is made possible with the use of Substratum.
This is my first Sony device and I added it to my Youtube channel device inventory because of Sony's popular theme engine found on all of its Xperia devices. I was so disappointed when I found out that the only thing that themes after the Oreo updated was wallpapers, maybe the navbar (on a couple themes) and some icons packs. If I had known this was ro be the outcome, I would have blocked any more updates.
Installed apps not showing open option only show uninstall.
I have an upgraded Xperia C4 Dual E5333 (Andoid 6.0) with 2 SIM cards (upgrade done with Xperia Companion)
SIM1: GSM only - used for PHONE
SIM2: LTE/ (preferred)/WCDMA/GSM - used for internet
To decrease the battery usage, I want to Disable the SIM2 card when I don't need the Internet access.
used the "Settings -> SIM Cards", and wanted to disable the SIM2, but I got: "Error, can't disable all the SIMs." - I don't know why this option is not working as my SIM1 is absolutely active.
I read the related book here, but no solution.
I disabled Mobile Data, and tried many many combination in "Settings -> Data Usage - Mobile Networks", but the "disable SIM" function is still not working AT ALL --- AT ALL, as I have tested it wth SIM1, and also got the same "false" error.
There is ONE BUTTON solution to acivate/deactivate SIM2 to decrease the battery usage of it - I want to avoid any mobile signal when the SIM2 is disabled, this should be done by the menu in "Settings -> SIM Cards", but not working, and I think, this is a bug.
I had the same problem, and after the upgrade to 6.0, the E5333 becames unusable (day by day worst, and some days later, not able to call at all...). Tried everything, contacted the Hungarien suport, etc. etc.
The reason what Sony forget to implement to the "xperia Companion", that the NON-EU versions doesn't suport the Android 6.0 upgrade, and if you implement it, the phone became unusable.... (this is waht the Hungarian Service said to me).
After this, I bought a phone from a different company...

Hello. I'm trying to compile custom kernel to E2303.
I tried Google aarch64 4.9 toolchain and UBER Toolchain 4.9.
Compilation finishes without any error. Even 'Image'is same size as stock kernel Image
I repack boot.img using mkqcdtbootimg and mkboot (both of them leads to same result ) .
Flashed boot.img using fastboot.
After 'fastboot reboot' SONY logo comes out . Waits around 15-25 sec . Then restarts again. Weird thing is device connects as mtp before restart. So i think kernel is OK but something else isn't. I also tried to disable dm-verity and selinux still no luck.
Unpacking then repacking boot.img without any modification works.
I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong.
I'd appreciate any help.Thanks.
Ok . If nobodys gonna help , atleast update copyleft kernel build guide for m4 aqua and other devices, so i can see what i'm doing wrong
There is 280 views in this post so i guess i'm not the only one that have this problem.
I just got my XZ1 on monday and today I got a notification that it was time to update my phone, so I did. After it started back up and I got the notification that the update was installed and my phone was up to date , I got the same notification that told me to update my phone so I tred it over and over again but the notification keeps appearing. What do I do?
If you have a queue of updates they are installed one at a time.
If you check Settings - System - Software Update - tap on 3 dots - Update History, it will list all the updates you have done and they should all have different numbers.
If they have the same numbers you may have a problem.
Unfortunately, I'm not sure how the forums work, so I hope this is the proper way to ask for help. You see, I recently used my warranty to get a new phone, since my old one broke, and the phone I got behaves rather strangely; everytime I lock it, it goes into this clip scene, just like the phones on display at a retailer. Not only that, when I try to access the "lockscreen & security" settings, I see the outline of a padlock, and I'm unable to scroll up or down, let alone change anything. That, and everytime I unlock it, the brightness resets to the highest possible brightness. I have tried factory reset and safe mode, and the issue persists(I kinda knew safe mode wasn't gonna do anything, it's clearly not a third party phenomenon!). I was wondering if anyone has had the same issue, or knows something that could help. Please and thanks in advance.
PS: I'll attach some screenshots for you to see
Hi @On3, welcome to our forum and no worries, your post is in the correct place and you have included a great amount of information, which always makes it easier to assist you in the best possible way!
I agree with what @Quester wrote, it does sounds like you have been handed a demo device.
There are two different "versions" of a demo device.
1. The retail demo mode has only been activated in the device and can be turned off dialing "*#*#73556673#*#*" or if you go to Settings > Lock screen and security > Device Administrator and uncheck the Retail or Demo Mode option. This will remove Demo/Retail Mode from device.
2. The device has a demo software which can't be removed and as far as I know these type of devices are not meant to be sold or given to a private person, so if you can't remove the demo mode by following the instructions above, please get in touch with the retailer.
Let us know how it goes!
