Xperia Z1_14.2.A.1.114Sony certainly isn’t taking it easy as we approach Christmas, as well as supplying six Sony Xperia devices with Android 4.3 so far, it looks like that a new firmware update will soon be heading to the Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra. Firmware build 14.2.A.1.114 has been certified by the PTCRB to all versions of the Xperia Z1 (C6902, C6903, C6906) and Xperia Z Ultra (C6802, C6833, C6843, C6806).

This moves the firmware build from 14.2.A.0.290 to 14.2.A.1.114, so it seems like a reasonably significant update. It hopefully irons out a number of problems that people were having with the existing Android 4.3 update. We would expect it to arrive at some point around the New Year. We’ll let you know when we hear any more.

  • Micro

    ok… from now on, this is what I call the support… :D “Sony – the madness returns” ;]
    I’m so excited, let’s hope it’s about camera too, I love it! :D

  • Micro

    perhaps because it’s on PCC? :P It contains BL update so I don’t believe you can find it as OTA (not sure tho)

  • nathan

    Kitkat would bump it to

  • Mhar Jayson Cortez

    How about xperia v? Sony promised that it will have 4.3 but until now no ptcrb certification yet. And L already have??? Why?? It is torture for us to see any news on other device and our xperia t tx especially
    My v doesnt have any news

  • Micro

    Guys guys guys, don’t let the lumia win this one, let’s give M$ hell!! :D

  • lon

  • JG

    Having some major issue with wifi and heating issue on Z1 c6903 when updated to 4.3. Does anybody experiencing the same? So far the performance is great.

  • brapi

    Sony can’t get it right with the update since the infamous touchscreen issue is still here after 4.3. Updates are good but with this issue its really anoying

  • munak

    Same here. Wifi keeps dropping showing poor connectivity and the upper half gets really heated. When it starts getting hot, thats when the batt drains very fast

  • Julio Spinoza

    Yes, I can feel the phone overheat since 4.3, besides the wi fi keeps dropping even 1 feet away from my modem, cant recognize the wifi and some times the wifi doesnt connect anymore till i turn off and on, among other things. also the battery is worst than 4.2

  • Darren Gaspé

    I don’t even have 4.3 on my z1 yet….

  • Sony is king

    Stop complaining,,,a week sooner or later isn’t that important, are you near death and this update tied to your life?? No,,so be patient,,because a week after upgrading you will become bored of it too.

  • Actman

    Same here greetings from Malaysia.

  • mazymoozy

    after updating to 4.3 on my z ultra the photos of people in my favorite contact list are always flashing!

  • xperia Z1

    heh, u can vote as many times as u want, just exit browser, go back and vote again :-D

  • vivek

    hope this will fix the walkman settings bug

  • zairolafzal zainal

    I already recieving update 4.3 in malaysia even i already have tft firmware for malaysia region.

  • vivek

    only through pc companion

  • wodesmkj


  • SK

    I beg to differ in my observation. 4.3 has drastically reduced the heating issue. I am able to play 1 hr of real race or asphalt without burning my hands after the update. Also wifi connectivity has never been so stable since my rooted Arc. We have similar experiences with my frined’s z1 too. Not aware of ultra. Im from India

  • upczhou

    ????????? ??

  • Arian Rivers

    I have ZL 6502 and still no sign of update in Malaysia. weird
