Xperia ZL firmware

Firmware build number 10.1.1.A.1.253 for the Sony Xperia ZL has been out for a while for the HSPA+ (C6502) and North American (C6506) variants. However, we have good news for European owners of the device (C6503), as the update is now rolling out – at least for German handsets. The update includes a number of improvements including battery improvements, performance enhancements and UI changes.

    That’s the one I’ve flashed on my German 6503 model.

    Have to wait :)

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Poor S owners…they don’t realise that Kaz Hirai won’t authorise the release of the JB update until Fawwaz has finished molesting Dmitry Lazarev. Corporations….

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Aaron did though.

  • Erix

  • Jesús López Sotelo

  • rus_media

    Only 63.7 MB? I had to download almost 750 MB by PC companion for my C6502

  • Anzilleo Kristello Mozihim

    Actually, it’s the opposite.

    More smoother experience and Sony fixed the Camera software algorithms.

  • Andrew Tan

    I have already recieve my update a week ago and it’s amazing update
    but the size of the update was only 10 mb however it made my screen much more colorfull
    and made some little changes
    my phone version is C6503 middle east version?

  • Guest

    Fuck you Sony for delaying the update so long :/
    Guess what in the end Sony will release JB update for XS with 100 GB Firmware update so that no one can download it..Lol :P and we poor XS user will remain on ICS only :P
    Sony just release it now.

  • Mac

    Maybe if this phone was available in Sweden I would have bought it instead of my Acro S. But no..

  • Vasiliy Trefnyak

    to 4.0.4? :)))

  • Herman

    The number of useless trolls on this site is too damn high.

  • Rob

    Germany would be the closest place to get one I think.. Sucks

  • Alaa

    We need 4.2.2 for Z – ZL – ZR

    W T F ?

  • Mac

    Yea, but the thing is that I wanna hold the device in my hands before I buy it so that doesn’t work for me. I think the Z is way 2 big, so I thought ZL would be better but it might be 2 big as well. I think the perfect one would be a ZR with some specs from the ZL like IR and better secondary camera.

  • Bigups

    Xperia V! why not! I have it, it’s super nice. As good as Z but smaller and cheaper!

  • the_black_dragon

    On PC the whole Firmware is downloaded and flashed. OAT it downloads only updated files

  • CLB

    No unlocked bootloader! If you can provide a German .253 .ftf file, give me a link please :)

  • Joe Merol

    Goddammit Dmitry.
    Just relax and let it happen.

  • rus_media

    It will be released soon(!)

  • rus_media

    There was no option to download from mobile.

  • Fake
  • Mac

    Didn’t like it when I tried it in the store, I bought the Acro s instead because lack of camera button and the price on the xperia v. But I’m still waiting for that one phone that has all the features I want. But til then I will stick to my Acro that I like everything about except for one thing..
    Where the he’ll is our JB!

  • DoucheyTuesday

    So what if it is 100GB..the download should complete by Xmas :)

  • Joe Merol

    I can’t trust anyone that is called Agent Ricky.
    Sorry, it’s just not physically possible for me.

  • djsilentg

    Soon as in November

  • Andrew D

    Che Cazzo?
    What about the Xperia S ???

  • what do you Need it for?
    ist a serious question!… Why 4.2? what is better?

  • blitz_arc

    im not sure, either this blog contain more trolls nowadays of people are just getting more stupid as time goes. :

  • Bigups

    Haha, JB is just around the corner!
    I was actually supposed to buy the acro s, but the price difference was so small (on offer so I went for the V) My gf has Acro so I know both phones. What you wrote about acro is also my thoughts. Th phone has much more of everything, at least storage and photo button (that I really miss!) V is slimmer, lighter and has 4G, and lacs the good battery that acro got. I kind of need the 4G, but I guess acro would better fit my needs.

  • code2i

    Thank you SONY …. i like the Firmware 10.1.1.A.1.253 on my xperia zl !!!

    No longer contrast problems.
    Before this update, i notice a low contrast in areas on my homescreen whithout icons or widgets (unicolor background).
    So there is/was a kind of “automatic contrast engine” (not Bravia) working.

    Now the display contrast is much more better.
    Nice design by moving from grey to black.

    By the way … the mobile Bravia2 engine effect is sometimes/often a bit too much. Would like to adjust the settings.

    Kind regards



  • CLB

    Today I’ve got the .253 update for my 6503 with NORDIC firmware via PC Companion!

  • Mac

    Yea can’t be closer than now I think. Imma check SUS ASAP when I get loose. Haha, oh yea about that Lte (4G) it was not a big deal 2 me since I use wifi as much as I can and I barely get 2G to work where I live atm so it would be waste. But hopefully there will be a Honami which is about 4,55″ with the slim design as ZL and not bigger. Then that’s my next phone even if the price is deadly x)
