    Why EVERY TIME i try & use that pile of CR*P ‘Sony PC Companion’ it says –

    “PC Companion needs to connect to an online server.
    The server is currently not assessable.
    Please try again later.”

    I have never got it to work :-/ & the only other way i can update my ‘Z1’ via PC’s is using the ‘Update Service’ off SONY’s site. I think that is the same’ish as getting the latest updates??? (sorry i know this post isn’t about the Z1 but seeing that pic of the ‘SONY’s PC Companion’ made me mad) :D

    The PCC problem u got I don’t know anything about but u know u can download the SUS and use it as a program without getting into Sonys website.

    Nope, not for me….

  • ridersid

    Xperia L & C will probably get 4.3 in late 2014

  • haha

    Why noo??

  • ridersid

    in india….. the update comes 2/3 days after it is rolled out!!!

  • ridersid

    yes!!! 4.3 for SP has made it slower……and also lags sumtime….. right?

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Its only available for c1905, not c1904! We will get it by 4th april, and by 11th it will be available ota!

    And once M dual gets kitkat, we hope that M gets kitkat too!
    Ands this different android versions for the same phone stupidity ends!

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Hi everybody! We all know that there is a big problem with With current phones especially with low internal memory devices and that is we can’t install apps on sd card!

    So please sign and share my petition to get “move apps to sd card” feature added via update!

    It will work:

  • Killian Khoo

    Seems like u missed a news ~
    ZR is getting 4.4 ~
    Just wait for it ~

    Sony Confirmed it ~

    **U can see it on Sony Website ~
    Next Version
    4.4 Kitkat on Sony Xperia ZR update page on Sony Mobile Website ~

  • seriously?

    seriously? just because xperia m had an update you already felt cheated on? dude come on, xperia l had tons of update for the past months, and we only had one and that happened last year and we never complained.

  • seriously?

    why does everyone complain that we xperia m users got 4.3 and xperia L didn’t? guys come on. We xperia m users only had one update since it’s release, not sure about the others though. While xperia L got tons of updates each month and don’t tell me you don’t cause my GF had an xperia L and every month she had updates for the albums and firmware and etc. And don’t blame sony, they’re already doing the best they could do. Most you guys crying for updates are just being too immature. Just be patient and let sony do their work.

    Xperia L should receive 4.4. I hope it will. I dont care about 4.3, but 4.4 u_u

  • Riffienkuningas666 .

    I wish that I could install latest version of 4.3 android back because 4.4 takes a lot of ram, heatens the phone, the menu where you can close the apps is laggy as hell, I can’t set up lock screen wallpaper, battery doesn’t last so long as in 4.3, camera interface lags and some of the apps does not work (like Small Apps’ Small Browser) or lags because developers has not updated ’em…. KitKat looks nice and status bar and quick settings are great:) And also the picture quality is better!

  • marwan balu

    When I update to 4.3 and when I call by viber the sound on my device disappear… Its a big problem

    Screenshots of Xperia M 4.3 update!!!

    So far so good looking great, not experienced major bugs either.

  • alias

    Why is it that xperia m dual not getting the update?

  • MyNicki_ds

    So if xperia M now updated from 4.1 to 4.3, then M dual will be updated from 4.2 to 4.4..!
    hahaha… Just kidding..

    Still waiting patiently update for M dual, even if updates rolling for M dual to 4.3, I would not going to udpate it too rush, just waiting for a couple of weeks or month to see if there might be bugs in it..
    Coz 4.2.2 on M dual is almost bugless, one that I detect is only clear bass setting on manual equalizer which messing with upper 5 bars, you should touch it at bottom of screen to be function.. BTW when I listening music via headset, why ClearAudio+ output sounds like the equalizer set to off? did I miss something here or is it a bug? or is it supposed to be clearer sound through internal speaker? that’s xLoud right?

  • Saurabh

    You guys never complained? huh.. Check you facebook group :3

  • MyNicki_ds

    AFAIK, When open the drawer usually the very left side of drawers should be arrange apps like own order, alphabetical, etc but on this video there’s no such option?

  • Harkamal Singh

    Fuck you

  • Harkamal Singh

    Guys, when this update is arriving in India ??

  • guess

    is it 4.4 rom? should it be 4.4 works smoother coz minimum 512mb ram? I can’t imagine how E1 would be laggy as hell..

  • seriously?

    yeah, well maybe some of them are complaining, but not me. I don’t care any of the updates. And besides do you wanna know when was xperia m’s last firmware update? it was last october-november and it was the one and only update i got, while my gf had album updates, firmware updates, application updates and etc. This is the only major update we had, unlike you xperia l users which had several updates since its release. So what are you complaining about? Sony is already doing the best they could do. Releasing and android update isn’t as easy as you think.

  • webleo

    No. OFFICIALY you can’t. But there are tutorials that show you how to do it. But there are a bit complicated. Check this video. I’ll do it when i have a 32 GB micro sd.BUT you must be root. Bye!

  • Sagar Korde

    how are u so sure that M dual gets kitkat.

  • Riffienkuningas666 .

    It’s real 4.4 and I was talking about z1, sorry for the turmoil :(! But the point was that latest 4.3 worked with no problems at all and 4.4 has a lot of problems i’ve never had with androids before

  • Abhijit Biswas

    My the certifications on, 15.4.xxxx and can’t be the same android version, the second number (assume it to be ‘z’ in always changes with with newer android version, you can check it for all xperia devices ever launched!

  • Sagar Korde

    Ok that’s interesting. I didn’t about this nomenclature. Hopefully we’ll get 4.3 or 4.4 for m dual

  • Ec

    yeah my Xperia M did a same, when i updated to 4.3 the battery has decreased 50%.
    but i didn’t find the reason

  • Arindam Dey

    What about Indian users!!!

  • Abhijit Biswas

    If E1 can get kitkat, all Sony devices other than E should be getting kitkat! And the firmware build does show that very same thing!

  • sony master

    Were is 4.3 in the uk cmon sony please dont be long I really want it please :)



  • the_xperia_fan_6432

    Not “on”, I said “by” 4th…

    Z, Z, ZR, SP all got their updates later than other countries so I calculated how late it was a gave a date by when it will definitely be available over PC… And if you wait for another 7-9 days after the update is available on PC, then you will get the update directly on your phone via OTA… That is when I will update my mother’s phone!

    I updated today and I’m loving it. Mine is unlocked; had I bought it from Claro, I guerss it wouldn’t get the update yet.

  • Martin Caballero

    Signed, but as far as I know, it’s a limitation in Jelly Bean that has nothing to do with Sony. And it gets worse with Kit Kat. If we had Kit Kat, no third party apps could save files to SD.

    but what is ota ??????

  • interstater

    in Belgium since yesterday :D

  • sidi

    is the release date legit?

  • Rahul Malhotra

    dude pls can u tell us how did u got latest update center and whats its version no. i mean is it 2.0 or 2.1.1.?

  • ayrine to

    Just updated to 4.3 but can’t install
    xperia new themes (from Sony select)
    It said not compatible with your device.
    Anyone knows why? Or it just can’t?
    I really like the theme trifat :/

  • Nabeel Raza

    The phone on the left has Update center app as 2.1.1 , the right one has 2.0
    You can even see the difference. The left one, i ordered from flipkart, and the right one i bought from sony store. The flipkart one came with older firmware than the right one, and it showed 2 updates in update center app
    1) A new update center 2.1.1.x.x.x.x.x.x.x
    2) 15.1.c.2.8
    After updating both 1 and 2, it showed another update for 4.3 as you can see, so thats the story.
    OTA IS Update over the air, means installing updates through update center app

  • sidi

    how to update UPDATE CENTRE??

  • Rahul Malhotra

    one more strange thing…. both hav different time in india :P

  • Rahul Malhotra

    its coz updates r released IMEI no. wise…….. so new one will get first…

  • Nabeel Raza

    @sidi You can’t update it on your own. You will have to wait for it.
    No rahul, updates are not released on the basis of IMEI, but customization. When you flash, suppose an australian firmware on your indian phone, the IMEI remains same but customization changes from ind to aust. Now in future you would get updates the same time when the aust people get it.
    I just updated my phone btw, and the time on both the phones is different because they are without sim right now and i didn’t set the time :))
    I actually have to send these 2 phones to Aligarh, I live in New Delhi. My uncle considers me phone expert so he told me to buy them :D

  • Nabeel Raza

    Check this thread

  • Nabeel Raza

    Wow, sony can be such a silly sometimes :))
    I installed the new update center on the other app and voila, it shows the update

    I uploaded the update center app here, download it, install it, and search for an update. :)

  • Rahul Malhotra

    thanx it worked..

  • Mac

    Sounds weird, u don’t have any other laptop somewhere in your surroundings that u can try PCC on?

  • interstater

    after update :
    more ractive touchscreen
    I prefer the new design
    more options in sleep mode
    new stamina mode increase battery life

    I’m very happy of my new (a little bit) Xperia M…

    Is it available for Xperia M C1904??

  • Malcolm Dias

    i’m From India. I have flashed the official version of jb 4.3 yesterday. Amazingly Smooth and lovely interface. The official Ftf file is available on xda developers site. its a 698 mb file. if u have rooted devices then flashing the official rom will unroot it. and there’s no current root for it :( thats 1 flaw… also the xperia themes get downloaded but they do not install… waiting for a software patch for that… but all in all the enyire interface is much smoother and better… keyboard is spacious than before. Also it has many new camera updates as well as security feautres like TimeShift Burst,MotionGraph and My Xperia.

  • Abhijit Biswas
  • kashyap07

    You mean quick settings out in the top? Nope.
    There’s literally no lag , no bugs , no nothing at all.
    The battery’s just a leettle bit better (nothing too significant,though)
    The “snappiness” has gone but “smoothness” has come.
    Oh! and also the RAM management is much much better, avg 35-40% used up..

    Overall it’s awesome! :D (except for the no themes part :( )

    how all users can get it?
    it have to update itself bt not by us..
    since u have gave this apk file i enquired about it in service centre..they have suggested not to do like that.and there may be warranty loss..

  • Nabeel Raza

    Vamsi, read the whole story above by me. Read all comments. I don’t know if you know but the service center guys in india are fools that don’t know anything. they just don’t really know anything besides software repair. read every comment i made above, specially the flipkart one, This update center app is by sony itself.
    I can’t help you more than that, sorry. It’s your wish to update or not :)

  • Vamsi Krishna

    ok then one last doubt..

    hey amit, sony just realised that they had not updated the update centre for the ota so they gave the update centre update and then u received ota….

    but by that time a new feature2 update was ready so sony has rolled back the current 4.3 buggy build and will be providing us a better one in say a week! it might have the same build number considering it is a feature2 update…

    Although a feature2 update can be computer required only but you will definitely get a notification on your phone…
