Xperia Tablet Z Wi-Fi_KitKat_1The last device yet to receive the Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware update in the older Xperia Z series is the Xperia Tablet Z. Well, wait no more, as firmware build 10.5.A.0.230 has now started to seed. The update is only live for a few regions/carriers (France and O2 UK), however availability will widen in the coming days.

  • Flavio Lemos

    SGP312? Can u share it?

  • Abdel

    Nada todavia. Xperia Tablet Z SGP311 Mexico

  • Uae

    Not here yet in UAE

  • Texterted

    Oh my, even after a couple of hard resets, my 32gb wifi tablet can’t maintain its charge in standby, overnight in the Sony charging dock! That’s not looking good. We crave these updates but none have been as good as the 4.1 original build!

  • Are you the problem is not with the charging dock? You should look up a Sony shop near you and take the dock there with you, maybe try an other dock and you would see if it’s broken or not. And you could give them your current dock to repair or to get a new one. I would give it a try. :)

  • texterted

    Thanks, but it worked fine before the kitkat update.

  • Oh I see. Well then, how about reinstalling it? With the Update Service. They say it helps a lot of people with unusual problems. I hope you can get it right. :/

  • texterted

    I’ll leave it a few days and see if it’ll settle down, probably background stuff going on in there, walkman database and such like. Thanks for your help. :)

  • Good luck for ya! ;)

  • Abdel

  • Abdel
