Small update (10.3.1.A.2.74) certified for Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z [Update]

by XB on 3rd October 2013

in Firmware, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

Xperia Z_10.3.1.A.2.74A new firmware update has been certified by the PTCRB website for both the Sony Xperia Z (C6603) and Xperia Tablet Z (SGP321). Firmware build version 10.3.1.A.2.74 is only a minor update over the previous build (10.3.1.A.2.67) that rolled out recently. We would expect the same update to land on the Xperia ZL and Xperia ZR, but it most likely has not been certified at this stage. We’ll let you know when it gets released.

Update: Judging by the comments, this update is already rolling out! See confirmation below (Thanks xPnoyStar!)

  • Marinko Agic

    In .2.67 what’s new???

  • AMG38

    still can’t notice any changes on .67 FW. Probably this will exactly be the same at new .74 FW.

  • xPnoyStar

    Already got it.


    What bout c6602 version of xperia Z? Will this fw be released for c6602 xperia z?

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Camera had improved a bit in terms of details and noise, but low light performance has been affected a lot…. NO display changes or battery though… UI is smooth but Asphalt 8 was lot smoother on .244 !!! Hope they fix that

  • AMG38

    Denmark 3DK and France Orange already rolled out. Checked it via XML.

  • ImAnurag

  • xPnoyStar

    One important information:
    I got the update with the Sony PC Companion.

    I think there is no OTA update.

  • SonyFan

    YEP… make us feel more premium sony :) give 4.4 as fast as possible, after it’s release :P

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Use Flashtool, it’s very simple

  • kjmok

    ahead of HTC One and Galaxy S4! that’s more like it!

  • SeVeMaS

    A minor fix that needs to be done is when charging and the screen is off, it lights up once is full charged and keeps on, so the phone is a bit warm in the morning. And if you leave the phone under the pilow the phone is really hot.

  • Wolf0491

    agreed but if updates truly are minor just extra hassle for no reason.
    Especially if you have root and need to reroot

  • I’ll say that in my experience with a Sony smarthpone, I really appreciate the support it has received :)
    The only issue right now: I can’t install the damn OTA update! It downloads, it reboots, and the the “error installing” message. Do you guys know what it could be? :(

  • Brad Williams

    I’m still waiting for 2.67. :)

  • Mike Gonzalez

    hopefully it will bring back good signal for LTE cuz 10.3.1.A.2.67 sucks in that department

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    Anyone can.tell us is there any difference ! Cuz.last update has improve the camera a loot, a big change

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    Turkey. Just updated to .67 via PCC. Hope it will fix the in-car Bluetooth phonebook & call log sync bug. That is the only problem I have with my XZ currently. I’m gonna try it first thing in the morning.

  • Wolf0491

    Actually just connected mine to PC and do have .67 now lol
    but not .74

  • XperiaZTUser

    Please tell me if there is something new for xperia tablet z

  • Philip21

  • tons

    you don’t need to root to flash Stock ROM from Sony :)

  • Wolf0491

    Was stating you would have to root again after you update with the FTF

  • Sanoj

  • nono

  • josesl16

    What is this ‘buggy JB’ you are talking about? Enlighten me, please.

  • rzr

    here we goes, the “outdated phones” comes again =_=

  • lucasarg

    4.3 when?

  • Nabeel Qureshi

    In my opinion go to xda developer website. Search and download flash tool, Google how to use it. Then download any generic firmware of any country and flash it through flash tool. I cant even see. 67 update in pc companion. So .7x is a mystery to me. XperiaZ is the best phone I ever used or bought in my life since my dad bought half kg Motorola brick size phone in 90s. But camera disappointed me. .67 helped a lot but I think sensor is crapy. Sony stop testing my loyalty!!!!!
    sony phones I had
    ArcS still got it
    Xperia Z (best ever with crap camera)

  • Gazza

    No update here in UK, Using unbranded Spain firmware,

  • bawse
