Xperia Z2 Tablet Wi-Fi_17.1.A.2.69Yesterday, we brought news that a new firmware update with build number 17.1.A.2.69 had arrived for the Xperia Z2 Tablet LTE model. It appears that the update has also started to roll for owners of the Wi-Fi tablets too (SGP511/SGP512). The update will slowly be released depending on region, an earlier check on our UK Wi-Fi model showed no update. The new build is said to fix a number of touchscreen sensitivity issues that users have been suffering with. If you’ve downloaded the update, please let us know your impressions below.

    Touch screen is better than before but still can be better than this ,

    When unlock , home screen sometimes blink for a moment then went back to normal

    I almost returned my Z2 because of the touch sensitivity issues, but hoped for an update to fix it instead, because there was just no other tablet I would rather have at this point. Hope this update fixes it!

    Sony should work hard

    @ Johnny, Mohammed Achmed & all others who already have the update!

    Could you please either

    1) go to xda forum (Tablet Z2 subforum is at ) and post there the contents of the file /system/usr/idc/clearpad.idc (you can access it by using ES File Explorer; it contains configuration data for the touchscreen, and we want to see whether Sony altered something in it to fix the touch problem) or

    2) if you are more computer-savvy, make a FTF of the update and upload it for the xda forum? (Instructions: )

    That would be really great! Thank you very much!

    This update went to my phone today . The LTE option in my settings has switched to 4g.

    Man, this here is about the Z2 TABLET, not about a phone.
    And it’s about the WIFI model, not about any devices with LTE.
    Learn to read.

    Actually it says for the Tablet LTE model with updates starting to roll out for the wifi versions. I read well. thank you. I was stating the exact same update was pushed to the z2 phone and has changed a setting within.Not sure if it was a mistake… Don’t be a dick on a discussion blog.
