  • nimrod

  • Dominic Wong

    This might just be for HK/Taiwan coz my HK set didn’t get .510 update and jumped straight to this version..

  • Johan

    am i the only one who have problem with mobile signal? i keep losing signal and sometimes couldnt find network. i changed my sim card and i still lose signal

  • Kenny L

    did u experience the SOD issue before this?

  • Toman Lam

    Did anyone else notice the font face is changed in this version and on 510 to the ugly old Sony style font? The new font is used on the lock screen , album and Walkman. Any way I can revert them to the font on 475?

  • nimrod

    with the .510 update i experienced Sleep of Death (SOD) so I rolled back to .475 then it was fixed. Now I updated to .526 and it works perfect, now I can experience X-Reality Display.

    Truly Disappointment with SONY this time!

    SONY development team sleeping?

    Big HUGE issue at firmware .510 where give your phone fake hang + continuer dead afer locked the screen. It can be prevent but troublesome. Solution here –

    Also another issue is swipe at Small keyboard layout at Chinese Keyboard for English input is not working.

    BUT!!! SONY just release new firmware today earlier morning – 14.1.B.1.526 … AND ALL issue at .510 still there!

    What SONY do? SONY release New Sony Xperia Z Ultra firmware for FUN ?????

    Current issue at 14.1.B.1.526
    – The fake hang + SOD issue.
    – Chinese keyboard when in small keyboard layout, the swipe in English input still fail to input.

    What is new [/u][list]
    – Recorder – app is back. (This is gone for me after I do full recover in previous .510 firmware)

    ** The color still as usual washout when tick Optimize Backlight. (No changes as some mention at XDA)
    *** Bad update from Sony.
    **** Vroot – one click root still working and need to redo.

  • Andrew Tan

    YES, that stupid issue still there and you can easier -regenerate that issue.

    This firmware out for fun, it fixed nothing. All bugs happen at .510 still happening at .526 firmware.

  • Bill Lockhart

    I second that. improvement on the Z’s camera would be nice.
    But, then again, to me, it’s not that big a deal now… I’m just gonna buy one of those awesome smartshot lenses… :D
