Android 4.4.4 firmware (14.4.A.0.108) rolling for Xperia Z1 Compact; certified for Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra

by XB on 27th June 2014

in Featured Content, Firmware, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1

Z1 Compact_4.4.4_1Somewhat surprisingly,  Sony Mobile has started to roll the Android 4.4.4 KitKat firmware update for the Xperia Z1 Compact.  This comes to the handset in the form of build number 14.4.A.0.108. The update is currently rolling to users in Russia, Italy and Indonesia. We don’t have a changelog right now,  so if you’ve downloaded the update let us know your thoughts below.

Update: The FTF firmware file for this update can be found here.

Z1 Compact_4.4.4_2

This same build version (14.4.A.0.108) was also certified by the PTCRB website for the Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra. It doesn’t appear that the update is rolling to these handsets though.

Xperia Z1_14.4.A.0.108

Thanks Mars!

  • Concerned Nigerian

    sony on a roll impressive

  • Rammstone

    Hmm. Any word if Z will get this?

  • Tim Westerholm

    Hmm… is it only me or does Sony Xperia Z1 & Z’s boot animation not sound like it does on Z2 & Xperia Tablet Z?

  • SonyXperiaBug

    Now were talki’n Sony… World’s first 4.4.4 Sony wins! Nice one Sony! Good job!

  • Ali Alkhazal

    interesting :D

    waiting for Z2 ^^

  • Abdul Ghani

    well this is good news

  • Sami Mrabet

    Wow thats amazing! From being last to being first all of the sudden

  • Jinn

    My Z1 does not have boot animation sound

  • Samuel

    Z2 has stereo speakers.

  • Samuel
  • Jozinek
  • Darkholme95_

    Maybe Android 4.4 for Xperia SP users :(

  • ash

    Better without sound. What is the use of sound anyway?

  • Tim Westerholm

    I know, I own 4 devices, all in my comment^^ therefore I asked. But I’m not sure both Z1 and Z should have it or not. I mean, Z and Tablet Z got same android updates

  • Guest


  • Stanley08

    Yes! Very Impressive! Waiting for it to come to Z2. Nigerian here too! :D

  • Michael Hernandez
  • Stanley08

    Come on Sony! Z2 users :'( :P

  • jag

    Any changelog?

  • To come to the Z1

  • Sture Karlsson

    Probably, but since Z is old it won’t be as quick

  • Ray

    Update for xperia zl? It’s damn laggy! Not only on setting but the whole interface!

  • Ayman F. Herzallah

    So instead of fixing the crappy KitKat update for earlier Xperia Z models you’re rolling a new update for the already updated newer Xperia Z models, not to mention those who are still waiting for KitKat (like me C6503), what a shame Sony!

    this is fast… indeed FAST.

  • Sadman Khan

    Now this is a pleasant surprise :D

  • Guest

    Haters are gonna hate! Sony what a pleasant surprise!

  • Sadman Khan

    It’s not a shame. The last update Z Ultra got was on April 9th. Patience bro. Kit kat does have issues and Sony needs to take turns fixing them. A firmware .233 was certified for you guys so wait up.

  • I agree this is tough especially for a ZL owner like myself. I wish I could debug the official root cause of these issues, particularly battery drain.

  • Rain_Broker

    KitKat is available for ZL, stop whining and flash a different region

  • Rain_Broker

    Check “Force GPU rendering” in Developer options and the lag is gone

  • raptor

    im a indonesian.

    it’s good update actually. the previous update caused a battery drain. i think sony fix this problem

  • Alan

    Really? that’s great!

  • Guest

    oh lord awesome Sony
    bring it fast :)
    4.4.4 baby 4.4.4

  • Timbo1

    I bet this kills any chance of rooting the Z1 with the new exploit found.

  • Mars

    Rooting is as easy as before on Z1 Compact so my guess is Z1 will be the same

  • Timbo1

    Thanks for the update. .

  • ZXcorr

    Will I lose root?

  • Bird

    Is this running with ART runtime now? What will be the changes?

  • Bird

    Double tap to wake? anyone?

  • Nawi

    Z1 KitKat has bugs before Z/ZL KitKat!!

    It is logical to start with them.
    They could have started by Z2 and they didn’t ;) .Your comment is unfair

  • Xperia Z1


  • Actman

    So who the f**k who said sony always got the slowest update among any other phones??

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Dang I am impressed, I hope it is a bug free update of 4.4.4

  • jake

    Its logical to start with the current selling device .
    All of the manufacturer doing the same , what make you think sony should be different . Not like you paying extra for update .

  • Michael Hernandez

    It’s possible. If is a major update, will replace the OS, including the Kernel and the system apps. Of course, after unlocking the bootloader, rooting the phone again will be easy.
    I have my Z1 boot unlocked, i’m not worried to root again.
    TIP: Back up apps and personal info.

  • Nawi

    Yes. But they didn’t (Z2 still on 4.4.2)
    I think that Sony is being fair.

  • SSyar


  • xperiaDROID

    Since the Z1, Z1C and Z Ultra owners will get Android 4.4.4 update, and they’re very happy with it, it would be funny if the older Z series will get the Android L 5.0 earlier than them lol. Come on Sony, make it happen, let’s be evil lol. Huehuehuehuehue…xD

  • Michael Hernandez
  • Den_Dav

    What’s new in kk 4.4.4?

  • xperiaDROID

    Z will jump straight to Android L 5.0 for sure.

  • No they didn’t fix battery drain…

    I once had a Samsung Note 2, and decided to go Sony after the Samsung region locking fiasco, and it seemed Sony were the plucky underdog trying hard to impress owners.
    I have not been disappointed!

  • Paul M

    Why? easy enough to get hold of the TFT and flash it with flashtool. I did, and I’m a noob to Sony.

  • vandyk

    really any proof plz

  • Paul M

    you have to blame Google for that, being hostile to memory cards.

    just boot recovery, edit platform.xml to allow writing to uSDHC card, that’s what I did.

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    Hey..I get your gripe..But I understand that by his comments, he meant that Sony was feeling guilty (if that’s a way to put it) of making a perfectly sound device to get on 4.3 into a bug ridden 4.4.2, so they saw it fit to fix that first and not the Z2 which from what I’ve read and heard,is almost perfect, if not perfect.. Like people say,don’t fix what isn’t broken.

    The issue with Play Services affects many android phones and is well known, it’s not limited to certain xperias. Just google “play services battery drain fix” or something similar, and you will find plenty of ways to fix it depending on your setup.

    i’m having the same problem with A1. how do you change the customization numer?

  • Markus L

    1) Root your phone
    2) Download “Build Prop Editor” from Playstore
    3) Change with this app the “ro.semc.version.cust” from xxxx-xxxx to 1279-6978
    4) Save and reboot
    More help you can find on or!

    Same here, but I did the speed test and it’s my regular LTE speed, only now it’s not showing the LTE icon, only 4G.

    After this update my camera start to froze after taking a picture very often. I’ve never had this problem before. My phone is 2 weeks old, not so many apps installed. I’m very disappointed.
    Z1 Compact.

    build.prop not at all working
    after reboot, the customization number didn’t change. followed the guide on xda, nothing seemed to work. changed maximum values in build.prop file, but everything got reverted back to the current old version.
    extremely stupid app for c6802

  • fbh

    build prop editor didnt work for me. finally did it using ES Explorer. I got up update notification on PC Companion 2.1 for my C6802. On the way to update.
    Cheers :)

    Dear Sony,
    we wanted to solve our issues by this update and not to add further problems to our handsets.

  • Taha

    I’d like to understand how the Z1 compact got its update before the Z2. strange :/

    Seeing yours is an unlocked version you should be getting them without any problems and among the first ones.

    Have you tried PC COMPANION? Please reply ASAP once you got the update. :)

    Thank you Sony for giving us with a big update (android kitkat 4.4.2). Now after updating mobile is not working properly. I don’t know why this problem arises. Will Sony provide kitkat 4.4.4 to xperia z.

    Reply with an appropriate answer.

  • Aakash

    And I am from India when I get android kitkat 4.4.4 in my xperia z device

  • Egidijus

    So much good opinions about this update in this BLog. I am amazed! And I found only bad opinions in another blog, so now I am confused, but still afraid to instal it. My xperia Z1 Compact can not catch its location in house via Wifi network. It catches after restarting, but after some time after restart it again start not to catch location. I want Sony to fix this problem. I am in Lithuania and my phone is already giving this update, but I think I will wait for some time till get more reviews from users who tried it

    YES!!!! It’s now available at PC COMPANION just now! After a month of waiting now it’s finally here. Well I still hoping it can be available via OTA.

  • I have just upgraded my Xperia Z1 Compact in Australia to 4.4.4. The phone/dialer then crashed with this error: “unfortunately the process has stopped”. I cleared data and cache for contacts. I still get the message when I access the dialer/phone/contacts but then they display and can be used. Dialer+ and Contacts+ app works without the crash. Its an annoying bug. Any ideas on how to fix this?

  • b

    I also have the 4G icon now… any idea why this is?

  • Realist

    My Sony Xperia Z1 has been displaying the message ‘unfortunately email has stopped’ for the past 3 android and Firmware updates.

    have changed email apps and still get the same message. I have cleared
    the cache, reset the phone, uninstalled and re-installed the email apps,
    trawled through countless forums for answers and still have the same

    I don’t know what to do. Does anyone know how I can stop this from happening?s

  • CG

    Hi, haven’t got one yet for mine. Is yours from Smart or not?

  • CG

    Hey, mine too. No update yet. Is your phone issued by Smart?
