in Firmware, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1


Xperia Z Ultra_14.2.A.1.142Sony Mobile has just certified a new firmware build with version number 14.2.A.1.142 for the Xperia Z1 (C6902, C6903, C6943, C6906), Xperia Z Ultra (C6802, C6833, C6843, C6806) and Xperia Z1 Compact (D5503). This new firmware most likely brings some bug fixes and performance enhancements, given that the small incremental number upgrade from the last firmware (14.2.A.1.136).

  • techielover

    xperia sp/t/v users just don’t whine instead learn a lesson from that..

  • gef

    …hope this update will fix the sound enhancement, etc..

  • Alvin

    Yup, I hope they Fix throw thing when using bt

  • must i update through my pc again? whats the point of having an update app in the phone if i can’t use it :(

  • jag

    i thought it was Kitkat! i guess we’ll see kitkat in our phones after the MWC 2014.

  • sp user

    What is sony doing no update for sp its almost mid feb and they are not even responding to the users in the support forum we sp users feel left out my last sony phone for sure

  • Samuel

    Yes, I learnt a lesson: If possible avoid mid-range phones and go for the current flagship. Sony doesn’t care about the SP, only about the Z series. So I sold the SP and bought a Z1 and voilà

  • Giovanni

    Sony you have lose…… Update for sp in end january/early february?!? Where is?!!!! Pff

  • Samuel

    You can use it for minor updates.I had bad experiences with OTA updates, so even if it was available as a OTA update I wouldn’t do it.

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Some causes of it are too much bug fixes that cannot be brought out just on over the air update, which at most you need PC companion or SUS. Minor ones are only brought to Update Center, AFAIK, this new minor changes will be available OTA.

  • when you update

    SP is illegitimate child

  • ALPHA

    When im sometimes looking at Sony, i see a piece of shit, after the treatment they did to me, though i bought first XPS, and now SP.

    Im now here just bcz i want an update for my SP, to fix the laggy issues, to enjoy my money/Product.

    So, any reaction?

  • Samuel

    This product was specially designed with SP owners in mind. Give it a try!

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Hope that too

  • Oscar Fernando

    I think it will take another 2 or 3 months for kitkat update :(

  • Oscar Fernando

    We Need Kitkat For Z1.. i think it will take another 2 or 3 months for kitkat release

  • tanz

    i think for sp 4.3 will reach next year

  • Michi Fus

    And if you want to keep the regular updates, think about sell the z1 and buy the z2 that will be released soon :S

  • tanz

    y sony dont have a time to roll out the update for sp if it is ready to roll out? this is the 3rd time sony is breaking their promise… :(

  • AA :P

    so the finger to anyone with less than flagship budget ? cool! go for nexus instead.

  • rossi

    Believe sony………. Lol:-P

  • Samuel

    Of course, I’ll do it in September. I’m not gonna buy the newest phone available! There are always hardware problems…

  • AA :P

    I presume they have different teams with top priority for the Z series. Sony’s entire focus was on the Z series once they were free from the earlier Sony-ericsson combine. unfortunately, devices like t/v/tx etc belonged to the earlier era. so sony has low priority for them. And SP – it still is not the Z series, sadly.

    perhaps this is also followed by samsung too ? But the saving grace for them is that phones like s2/ s3 which were past flagships would be treated with regular firmware updates. there’s already talk of 4.4 for s3. I just want to wait and watch how sony treats the Z users. since z1 / z ultra are the new darlings.

  • Jerry Berglund

    The funny part is that SP is mid-range but not T and V. But at least this article didn’t show a new release, only a certification. There hasn’t been anymore of those for SP/T/V so perhaps that means good news for us. :-)

  • XV user

    why the hell sony keep delaying the update for sp/t/v…?they can release regular update for Z-series but they can’t even do that for sp/t/v..??come on not all the people are afford to buy pricey flagships….
    sorry just my opinion..:)

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Hope it will fix the problem of walkman while playing FLAC without sound effect.

  • Rob

    If you are here because you want something from Sony, you are in the wrong place. This site is not affiliatied with Sony.

  • I want 4.4

    Where the hell is 4.4 KitKat????????????????

  • AA :P

    perhaps the lesson here is that only flagships will receive regular updates.
    mid rangers will get a single update (t/v/tx etc are proof, although for a long time i did get fooled that my T was a flagship phone, how wrong I am!).
    the low end phones like L/ M can also hope for one update in its lifetime.

    so what this teaches us is that you’ll have to buy different branded phones for different budgets. dont bother going for these brands if you are looking for a low to mid range phones try nexus or anyone who’s hungry to service these “cheap” customers

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Never buying a midrange phone again, so ya next phone is a nexus!

  • Abhijit Biswas

    I believe all the Sony engineers are busy developing software for the Z series….. While they found a janitor who wanted to do programming after seeing everyone around him do that for years….

    So Sony gave him the 3 phones and asked him to make software for those SP, T and V phones! That is the reason why these phones haven’t received a update in the past 9 months! And Sony doesn’t intend on rolling out an update ever!

  • Nickname

    In sonys head right now:
    “No way i’m gonna update those damn phones(SP,TX,V,T) to the same version as my flagships.”

  • REZASAT

    10.4.1.B.0.101 firmware update is now officially rolling for Xperia Tablet Z LTE SGP321 in Central Europe region

  • ALPHA

    Then Why The F** They Keep Posting Sony Stuff So Excitedly And Deeply?!

    Are you the hell lawyer of this site?

  • XV user

    yeah i agree with you but actually i like sony phones..in fact that my V is first smartphone i bought and i choose sony for their unique design and features..i just hoping that sony will keep their promise since the v only get one major update after launched and I would be grateful if sony update this phone to kitkat…i mean xperia v deserve to get kitkat after all..

  • AA :P

    yeah, they did say december… :P

  • AA :P

    I shifted from Nokia and picked a couple of sony phones since then. but, T has never really received an update. they said T would get 4.1 on launch, but it took them just 4 months to deliver that. Now, they are saying 4.3 which will be its first REAL update, and they are late by 3 months (it would be end of february by the time I get the FW, even if they release the update today). so, update wise sony sucks. despite liking the Z series, I will look at how they are treating their Z customers. since Z1 are their new darlings

  • whatwhatster

    It really is annoying reading all the time about different phones in a topic about the phone it’s related to.

    Don’t take this hard but please stop hijacking every news item from a Z series phone.

    I own a Z1 and I want to read the comments if someone have a nice input about it, but everytime after the first 2/3 reply’s I stop reading because people asking for a Xperia C.U.N.T firmware, so again please go away, thank you.

    Sony sure loves firmware certifications.

  • ne1

    Evil Sony !

  • karel

    Sony give a take down notice to this site last year. Because XB isn’t an official site. But after a good talk with Sony and the XB owner, approved to keep the FANSITE online. So have some manners, or gtfo. Framers aren’t welcome on this planet.

  • thisismylastsony

    FUCK THE Z SERIES WE WANT 4.3 FOR SP!!!

  • Xperia Madness

    U sure are stupid. This Blog is fan based. Of course they keep posting about Sony stuffs.

  • Buat Komentar

    again…??
    come on sony why about M, you said Q1..

  • lon

    hahaha 4.3 update for xperia v, t, sp? i know sony did not know the meaning of early february :D

  • joey

    there is one thing i like about sony that “They play there customers well”

  • francesco

    oh yes this is a good way to see the world, if sony doesn’t care about you with 300 bucks give them other 400 bucks hahahaha

  • Mohammed Khired

    we used to say this when we got xperia s, ion , acro s ….etc , and u xperia sp/t/v users tell us to go to hell…

    taste your own medicine…..and yeah shut the hell up y’all gettin’ annoying on us

    at least xperia s is flagship… :P

  • DontHaveHope

    i was good with 4.1 jelly bean on my sp,but then sony announced 4.3 on its way.Then as each day passed my anxiety became more and more.Now i think how every one would have been happy if sony in first place dint gave a hope of 4.3
    SONY please don’t declare or make any kind of false statements that make people angry and say harsh words to one another.

  • Mohammed Khired

    yeah , when u get the update you’ll see sony as hot brunette topless….

  • Jobs

    An Xperia fansite posting things about Xperia phones.. SHOCKING STUFF!

  • asd

    question: what is the point of releasing/certifying new software and not delivering it to the end user…. I have on my Z1 X.X.X.290 and not even a sign of possible update to something recently certified via PCC! So many bugs inside…?

  • Mirrorpurple

    thats quick… Sony STAHP… its too quick… i cant feel the full power of my .136 fw yet

  • xperiafan201

    yeah the sound enhancement is soooo shit.. wheres kitkat update tho

  • Alvin

    Kitkat? Honestly with sony track record for update policy, we gonna get kitkat in mid april or end of april :-/

  • Berg

    There could be lots of reasons they don’t relese a SW to everyone after sending it out for certification.. Off the top of my head:
    1. Internal testing during certification period found unresolved problems on that software.
    2. Software isn’t intended for gobal release
    3. Operators don’t accept the SW
    etc. etc.

  • cloudie

    i can understand their frustration as i was an xperia s user.
    fact is Sony’s not up to speed in delivering updates as they have too many models released, and yet the updates often contains loads of bugs.
    I have z1 now too and i just get the feeling that we’ll do the same ranting after z2 or z3 is released.

  • Timbo1

    hahahahaha, awesome!!

  • zaimi

    good choice!! I sold Z to get Z1 and keep S as a 2nd phone..

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Yes! Go for Nexus! But what when you stop getting updates on Nexus?

    What’d you do then? Move to windows mobile OS? lol

  • Timbo1

    Its rolling out now if you haven’t heard the news.

  • pawoza

    Just updated my Xperia Z1 to this Firmware.. And I already found a bug…

    When you write a message and write “<3" and press send.. It used to show a heart.. But after I'd updated to this firmware it shows "<3" not a real heart but the letters itself.. Anyone else noticed that??

    A Bug free version of the 14.2.A.1.136 is on his way.

    Sony you badass Troll, I will wait for the 14.2.A.1.142 and won’t Update my Z1 buwahahar

    Move to cynogenmod or after sometime, buy the new nexus!

    I know how to flash custom roms, if u don’t, u can always refer to a friend who can, and anyways each android phone has a limited max 18-month update cycle… WindowsPhone8 will get updates until WP9 isn’t out, the longest updates are from Apple! Mr BigGenius wannabe!

  • JG

    LOL.. atta boy!

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Well.. why can’t you move to Cynogenmod on a Xperia? You don’t know how to flash CM on Xperia?

    My 2011 Xperia Ray is rocking the latest android firmware buddy. :p

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Sony had the best price and hardware ratio! Plus I like Xperia skin a lot…. Sony and HTC make great skins!

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    Annnd you won’t get that a Nexus.

    Exactly my point, a Nexus device can’t match up with Xperia lineup.

  • jag

    I think it would be just after the MWC 14. I’m guessing that they were supposed to be announcing the Z2 last CES 14 that’s why they said that the KITKAT update of Z1 and Z ultra would come late january or first week of february. But as things did not went good as they want it to be, things got delayed and so our updates. So it would be a clever guess that our Kitkat updates will follow after MWC 14. Let’s hope it would turn out like that. ^^

  • santosh khatiwada

    Where is the new update as mentioned there? I can’t find new firmware. I have tried both update centre from phone and pc companion.
