Xperia Z DoCoMo Android 4.2.2 updateJapanese operator NTT DoCoMo has pushed the Android 4.2.2 update for the Xperia Z (SO-02E), a month after it started to roll out for the Xperia A (SO-04E). To upgrade, you must be on firmware build 10.1.D.0.343. Following the update, it moves the firmware build to version 10.3.1.B.0.256.

Changes include native compatibility with DUALSHOCK 3, improved Small Apps, a preview function added to the camera app, quality settings added to the Movie app, Bluetooth tethering and transparent UI in status bar and menu buttons.

Additionally, the Xperia A (SO-04E) and Xperia feat. HATSUNE MIKU (SO-04E) have also received a new firmware update moving the build version from 10.3.1.B.0.224 to 10.3.1.B.0.256. The update adds a “Play Game” application and fixes Sleep of Death (SoD) issues that were affecting the handset.

    Im suprised you didn’t post any news about the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and Sony Xperia Z1 finally coming to the states. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra (LTE) is available to order now on the US Sony website and the Sony Xperia Z1 can be preordered but its only the HSPA version since the LTE variant is expected to be carried by T-Mobile.

    Yo dawg they posted the news earlier this week. I thought it was new too, but they gave me a shortcut to the article when I sent them a tip.

  • Sh’ Dynasty

    Your update is in the Xperia Z1, get it and then you shall have your update.

    since sony updates a phone only once a year – they should follow google and update the non core apps – small apps/ media player/ etc. My xperia T is an year old, and since we have no clue whether we will ever get any update – perhaps 4.3 in june 2014. sony could just update the rest of the apps, bring in some polish, make the sony UI as a stand alone “sony experience”, and make people happy.

  • APai

    nope, it’s in the upcoming zztop from sony, you know, the superduper 60MP cam on it, and it also has android 5.

  • Whamublance

    Well, well… this is a very serious case, good thing you called us ma’am.

  • APai

    no such luck for you like the Z series. ion/ T will probably get 4.3 after the Z series gets it. as of now, there’s no word of 4.3 coming to the z series. once ALL of the z series phones get 4.3. they “may” think of the 2012 phones, with some luck, you might just get it in june 2014!

  • Babylonbwoy

    XT has been forgotten by Sony I’m afraid… Maybe they don’t remember that it is the H2 Flagship of 2012…

    @Sony if you come here sometimes : F-L-A-G-S-H-I-P means premium price and premium support!
