Xperia Updatechecker tool helps you check on that firmware update

Xperia Update Checker XUCMacmol from XDA recently created a very handy tool that allows you to check whether a firmware update is available for your Sony Xperia handset. It allows you to check for updates across various regions and carriers. We already know a number of you already using it, so you may want to know that version 1.5.0 is now live and should be speedier than before. You will need to update your clients, as the older clients will not connect to the new database.

Hopefully, this should stop people asking us when the next update is coming, as you can check for yourself. New Xperia devices are being added all of the time, but the Xperia Update Checker already includes a lengthy list of models to check.

XUC also allows you to add your own customisation numbers to check whether an update is available for you particular handset without connecting it to your PC. The tool also allows you to add your own firmware links for each device. It’s an incredibly useful tool and if you want to download it for yourself click here.

    Bullshit, it doesn’t work.

  • dr1xer

  • ShinOrochiX

    Its not bullshit, I have been using it since he made it and it works 100%. Maybe the problem is on your side. He was saying that there will be maintenance on the servers-if so then try tomorrow.

  • Macmol

    Instead of talking about bullshit, it would be more constructive to tell me the problem you have. If i can fix i, i will do.
    Please use the thread on XDA.

    Without a$$h01es it would be boring.

  • Mac

    Good point!

  • greatutility

    haha, thanks for taking it sportingly. but seriously, why do you update it many times a day ?? probably have point releases ? but, I guess you want to give the best to the users, which is kinda cool! (who in the world would complain for updating software ? the irony here is that – here we are using an utility that helps us check a very slow sony :)

  • Mac

    can u please be a bit more specific?

  • Macmol

    I don’t like to upload the updates, but sometimes it’s neccesary.

    The revision releases (the 0.0.x) were bugfixes for some users, which complained about this or that.

    The minor releases (0.x.0) are releases with new features:

    1.2 added support for firmware download

    1.3 added auto update of data files (obsolete today)

    1.4 all data is stored online in a mysql database

    1.5 change of the database provider and the technique used to connect to the db

    And finally 1.5.1 was a bugfix for the connection desaster in 1.5.0.

    Thats it. You don’t have to install every update. Only if i set the “neccesary”-flag, the tool shuts down after the update message.

    I am not planning to do further updates in the near future (if we stay bugfree).

    New versions will be delivered only to a handfull of people to do beta-test (do you wanna join ;-)? )

    But feel free to give me some feedback, what can i code next :-)
    So i can dedicate the next update to you !

  • Vitali

    Very interesting thing I just come across at – I could choose any number of items (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.
