in Firmware, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL


Xperia Z_10.5.A.0.230The PTCRB website recently certified the first Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware build in the form of version number 10.5.A.0.227 for the Sony Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z. Well a new build number has just been certified for the Xperia Z, ZL and Tablet Z in the form of 10.5.A.0.230.

As suggested in the small step-up in version number, this is likely to fix bugs found in the previous version. There is a strong chance that this is the update that could be pushed to these handsets later this month. We couldn’t find the latest certification for the Xperia ZR, but it can’t be far behind. We’ll let you know when the update is released.

    Hope you sort the flickering keyboard on Chrome in 4.3 for Tablet Z!

  • John Zakaria

    I’m worried about the ZR as It gets the lowest numbers of updates….

  • Wolf0491

    I need to go through my apps and see which are using the SD card soon. I know when I installed 4.4 on my girlfriends S4 anything using them just disappeared and had to installed again and lost app data.

  • Kater

    Start to be worry about zr T-T

  • Michael Felton

    same here d00d. tmobile xperia z for the win. but holy crap its been so long i dont remember when google announced kit kat anymore.

  • Reynaldi Sutrisno

    New certification before release to public?
    That’s very good move from Sony!
    Don’t release half-baked Kitkat firmware to our perfect older Z series (in 4.3) :)
    Instead of that, simply perfecting this Kitkat build so there will no annoying bugs in this final Kitkat build.
    Take your time, we have patience but don’t be too late too! :p

    Don’t just push updates and updates like the neighbour’s brand and ruins their costumer loyalty and trust because the updates are HORRIBLE

  • Cyanogenmod user

    Well I sure don’t want a bug update. And the updates always been free. I for one would like a bugfree update.

  • Frid

    dont worry. its confirmed. you can always check on sonymobile.com

  • Ziegfrid

    I hope we get this update via OTA.

    Okay, bye. Sony don’t need retarded customers like you.

  • Kater

    Strange, the 230 update is gone……

  • Ben Ling

    It’s not certified for C6602 yet

  • Mehdi Moghimi

    i”m sorry for you and like you .

    You’re just prejudice.

    You can not accept the truth. can not see .

    i got paid 700$ for xperia Z . And I expect.

    Your expectations of purchasing a smartphone is nothing.

    you only use for sms and calling !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)))))))))))))

    not Professional .

  • Harish Sampath

    when will i get update for my xperia ZL 6502

  • xperiaDROID

    Sony is late to roll out the KitKat update is because they’re fixing the bugs, if they roll out quickly without checking anything, the update will be a mess cuz it’s full of bugs, and retarded customers like you will whine for a bug fix update. I’d rather wait a bit longer for a perfect complete KitKat update then a rushing update full of bugs.

    So, you buy a phone is because of the Android updates? If you want fast updates, why you choose Sony? If you want to change to Samsung, go ahead, cuz Sony don’t need retarded customers like you.

  • xperiaDROID

    Let’s hope there’s an update notification on our phones tomorrow.

  • Mehdi Moghimi

    right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    like Z1 !!!!!!!!!!! hahaha . No bugs at all.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahaha .

    When the update is not timely. Update not mean.

    car with technology 30 years ago .If now it is to be built.

    is modern ? up to date ?

    no.

    world can’t wait . can’t stop .

    You must be quick and complete .

  • xyge

    Got paid?

    tell me how many “Professional” apps dont work on 4.3?

    and if u really want so much out of the phone,and did pay the unlocked price why not install a custom rom? ive been rocking 4.4 on my zl for 6 months now :/

  • Vitali

    Is not only in chrome…

  • HumanS

    Totally agree with Mehdi… look at the previous update of SP, T and V. Some idiot said something similar to xperiadroid… is late to roll out the 4.3 update is because they’re fixing the bugs. Look at T and V right now. The camera of V still yet to be fixed. Crap comment. Fix this and that… do you mean Samsung did not have to fix the KITKAT? Only Xperia?

  • Mehdi Moghimi

    custom rom not good like samsung .

  • xyge

    dude u sound more like a sammy troll or noob at android now :/

    u can look for sammy ports over xda and install on ur rom..no limits if ur rooted.

    PS…ur probably the first one i heard that likes bloated touchwiz over sony ui !

  • alackyou

    Fuck
    Bug bug bug .Build101 album&movie. Photo icon not loaded in album

  • Dion

    Dude do you get turned on from updates :D, It doesn’t care what for an fcking update you have be happy that sony even updates their phones and 4.3 is really good with the theme engine and the other functions they put in, be patient it isn’t that hard

  • Afzal Zainal Rddz

    Sony 4.4.2 comes with entirely different ui experiance and a few add on . So be patient. Don compare it with samsung. Their have history with google and the ui still rocking the same. Samsung also facing pull out update for s4 after release and i dont want samething happen to xperia line up.

    Okay, lets answer some questions:
    When was XZ released by Sony ?
    -Feb 2013

    Which Firmware was installed ?
    4.1

    Was it the newest AndroidOS ?
    – No, 4.1 was released by google on June 2012
    – 4.2 was already released Nov 2012

    Why didnt Sony release XZ with 4.2 instead of 4.1, which was 8 months old ?
    – because they were be able to stay “We are updating our Phone to the newest OS”

    How long did Sony take to update their expensive flagship from 4.1 to 4.2.2. after Releasing device ?
    – 6-8 months

    How long did Sony take to update XZ to 4.3 after updating it to 4.2 ?
    – 6-8 months

    When was KitKat released by google ?
    – Oct 2013, 8 months ago, at almost the same time when Sony rolled out the 4.3 update

    You guys notice sth ? Hope you do!

    So, how long has Sony taken to update XZ to KitKat ?
    – They promised for may, most likely they will release it June and customers get it on July-August

    So what ?
    – 6-8 Months again!

    We can say, that Sony is updating their (ex)flagships every 6-8 month.

    Now you guys can complain about the update procedure, or you can be happy to getting the second major update (dont count 4.2, that was just marketing same like Z1, see the release dates). Told it just objectively, personally i think they are taking too long compared to the release dates by google and rollouts from other Companies.

    So, if you buy a Sony Phone, be sure you will get two major updates and be kicked after, because Sony wants to sell their newer products. If you want newest Android, you have to choose Nexus, (Google Silver Phones in future) or PlayEdition devices.

  • Michael Hernandez

    I said you before and i say you now…>_< GROW UP KID!!! Your life is in risk else update? Sony don't need customers like you. If you don't like Sony ok, go and buy a NEXUS, but stop cry….OK?

  • P9

    love the 4.3 all its way. Sony’s 4.3 even better than others’ 5.0 maybe. xD xD

  • Nidou

    I had Z 2 weeks ago with 4.3 but I had to sell out cuz i bought Z1… to be honest, the battery life in Z1 running 4.4.2 build .757 is awesome and the coolest thing about is when your phone in standby mode (using (+) of STAMINA) will keep the battery life as prolonged as possible… check this out.. testing battery life which I found great!

    ***check the time and dropping percentage of battery life***

    yep…4.3 was better with the RAM for me …a jump from bad 4.1. and I do believe 4.4 will prove why android has changed even on just a dual core !!!! galaxy s2 had dual core too…SONY awesome but guys lets prove to the rest of them.

    Adding fresh garlic to your diet is also recommended.Secret #5: Eliminate stress and negative emotions.In 1980, the company went public, but it wouldn’t be until 1984 when Nike would make its quantum leap. That was the year Knight decided to sign a 21-year-old basketball player by the name of Michael Jordan to endorse his shoes.Their themes are on death, mourning and grief, love, and its pains and joys, wars, and peace, and all other universal human experience. Some of the genres of films are horror and suspense, action, documentary, historical, and comedy.This is concerned with visibly-marked and distinguishable links to main page, inner pages, and site sections. Moreover, adding graphics is a vital part of any design if you want to give Air Jordan Shoes For Sale your website its own image and make it more forceful.

    I appreciate it a lot! Very helpful.While Viral Marketing has been blown out of proportion and its proponents have suggested methods for using it that cannot stand the test of close scrutiny, there is still some value in the concept that does work quite well.Ezine publishers are in a unique position.The IRS currently allows companies to provide up to $5,250 a year per employee (though not all are so generous), so your employer may be able to help you out. There are organizations that help single mothers in South Carolina, Michigan, Oklahoma and most other states.yea steve is tybalt and he gets to kick my ass on stage with a sword. so it’s going to be great.

    But you can also purchase it below $100 if you search and spend some time for finding the right shop which gives away discount coupons. It is not a rule that only expensive shoes may lasts longer you can still work on cheap shoes which come for long life.The sneakers later became popular in streetball plays and the hip-hop fashion up to becoming the shoes that can be worn by anyone, anywhere and anytime. The shoes are sold in three types; the low-cut, the mids and the high-tops.A call into the Sacramento office of California Senator Calderon, resulted in an amazing admission by his staff. His committee staffer confirmed that SB 94 is in fact designed to prevent a homeowner in foreclosure, from paying a retainer fee to an attorney or anybody to advise or represent the homeowner against a bank.

    Yet, when men are paying more attention to the rest of their outfit, why should they just be satisfied with that one trusty pair of well-worn trainers?In this respect men could definitely learn something from their female counterparts.Topic inclusive of profanity, individual explosions as well as anti-social addiction (this kind of given that spamming plus trolling ), and many some other incompatible intended theme and pieces might be deleted. If you have any concerns about your own health or the health of your child, you should always consult with a physician or other healthcare professional.
