New update (10.5.1.A.0.292) rolling to older Xperia Z series

by XB on 17th November 2014

in Firmware, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR

Xperia ZNew software with firmware build 10.5.1.A.0.292 has been released for the older Xperia Z series. The update moves the build number from the current version (10.5.1.A.0.283) and as the small change in build number suggests, there are no tangible changes. It is likely therefore to be a bug fix update only.

The update is currently live for select regions on the Xperia Z, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z. The Xperia ZL is still yet to receive the update. If you have updated your handset, let us know of any changes in the comments below.

Thanks Jozef!

  • Alex Baloch

    Still on the 4.4.4 (.283) build here for my C6603 Xperia Z Canada.

  • Edison

    already running 5.0 lollipop on my xperia Z, cant wait till CM12 and sony’s 5.0 comes out

  • ShinOrochiX

    Still on 4.3 for C5303 UK Generic. :-(

  • Rob

    who is your carrier, bell is even 4.4.2 still?

  • Alex Baloch

    Im a Fido customer, I bought my Xperia Z unlocked when 4.2.2 was out for it.

  • Celxiuz

    Hopefully is for improvement of the camera launching speed and same goes to capturing speed. After 4.2.2, the camera launching seems to delay compare to previous version.

  • iainbong

    Already running Android 5.0 AOSP. Stock android is just so beautiful now!

  • K

    Whatever its camera still sucks

  • Yujun Li Linwood Kinji

    any lag?

  • Ken E

    Still on 4.3 (10.4.C.0.814) , T-Mobile Northeast US

  • Emil Oskarsson

    It’s your usage of the camera that sucks :) learn how to use it before saying something ;) /from a proud Xperia z owner

  • Huntesh Kumar

    still not z6602

  • K

    I can easily take some great pics from my Lumia 920 and Galaxy S5 without leaning anything for me now my Xperia Z is just a paperweight

  • vigneshprince

    yes well said! there is no use of complaining the great camera of XZ is they didnt know hot to use it! I agree with you! I’m proud to be XZ owner!

  • How did u installed 5.0 on Xperia Z. Let me know please. I am having ZR.

  • How did u installed 5.0? Let me know please. I am having ZR.

  • Amr Ali

    It isn’t released yet bro.. How u upgrade your XZ to 5.0 L ?

  • Mohamed Tharik

    @xperiablog Please provide the link to download the FTF File….

  • neo

    U lying . Yes maybe the rom but not the official . Stop say when u not said the truth:-S

  • Niki

    He just trolling u . There is no 5.0 for
    Xperia yet except the rom aosp

  • laci_csk

    Troll, please leave us.


    WTF ?!?!
    ofcourse 5.0 may not be released officially but there is a possibility that @Edison is using a unofficial 5.0 ROM for XZ or 5.0 AOSP for XZ !

  • Mohamed Tharik

    Anyone Updated to .192…any impressions with this update…kindly share…

  • XZ is a two years old device. Galaxy S5 is out right now. Unfair comparison…

  • Jigar

    not show updated build firmware version in official sony site.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Sony has released AOSP for this fone and its good except for some features that will be developed soon

  • Edgars Indrušonoks

    Yes, my phone already have the update waiting in settings :)
    I just need a pc to be updated. I will do this later.
    Xperia ZL from Latvia!

  • Mohamed Tharik

    Updated to .192

    Nothing Seems to be new….:(

    LTE Now Shown as 4G

    Thats what i found…

  • Steven Khoo Skkl

    He is trolling.. He already mentioned he was running AOSP

  • Wouter van Vliet

    Updated my Z to .292 just now, can’t really spot anything new. When you announced that a new firmware was certified I was otherwise keeping my hopes up for the screen recording feature, but I guess it’s a far fetch to expect that on such an old model.

  • Meatwagon

    Running Android 5.0 AOSP on my Xperia Z, pabx’s build. Freaking smooth and with root :D

  • K – derp

    I can easily take some great pics from my RX100 III without learning anything for me now my Galaxy S5 is just a paperweight

    Lucky you… I’m still on 4.4.2… (Portugal)

  • LK

    Nothing yet for the C6602 US

  • K

    Even Z1, Z2. Z3 they’re all never come close to S5 especially if compare with the Lumia 920, Z3 is just a lame toy. And please you guys don’t get me wrong Im a Sony fan too.

  • Huntesh Kumar

    still not…..

  • Leonardo

    Eu ja estou com a versão 4.4.4.

  • Adrian M
  • mail

    i will get nervous when i get into situation like using my zl;s camera in low light,,,,the image quality is too poor,,,with tons of noise and less detail even when adjusting the right exposure,iso and metering manually,,,

    we sony fans have to admit the camera quality is far inferior in low light and artificial light,,,even huawai honor,,is doing better,,,i was amazed by htc one’s and apple 5s (8mp instead of 13) camera performance on the same hand….

  • malav patel

    bell is still at 4.4.2 i have bell xperia z c6616
    i feel your pain

  • malav patel

    sp is end of life

  • Antonio Dinis

  • Kiran Pasupuleti

    Any improvement in performance?

  • Killian Khoo

    That applied to the new Xperia Z3 as well, u can check that too ~
    Seems like Sony is renewing the Sony Mobile Website ~

  • Nawi

    I see for Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, Tablet Z “Next: Android 5.0 (Lollipop)” =)

  • fjordstrom

    Update just arrived on my Xperia Z (Belgium). I think I might try the Lollipop AOSP ROM though :)

  • Danish Sohail

    I didn’t receive any updates and I am on 4.3 still. Though I get updates for Walkman and other apps but I am not getting kit Kat :’/ This is depressing. Should I factory reset my phone or what should I do?
    I got recent updates on time but I don’t know why is there delay with kitkat. Or maybe my phone missed it.
    I am happy with xperia z though. Btw I am from Pakistan and running 3g only model

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    Já instalei está nova versão no meu Z através de flashtool. Procura no xda.

  • Ritwij

    What all is NOT working?

  • ????????

    Unable to install… Wtf?

  • bombay

    Its best to restart your phone once a week for everything to reboot.

  • bombaygin

    Updated to .292, havent seen noticed anything at all hopefully just brings fixes to batt life and other sony apps. Waiting for the mighty Z4, could of upgraded to 1 to 2 or 3 but didnt see the point, in my eyes, its nearly exactly the same phone with few minor changes that i can live with out

  • Kunal Shukla

    That’s what I said bro my phone won’t go more than 4 or 5 days before it starts lagging at everything and thus I’ve to restart. Before I don’t remember restarting phone.

  • ???????? ???????

    Hey, guys. Done this update 292. 1,5MB. What it was? Who looked any changes? C6503

    So far seems like the update only applied to LTE ver of Xperia ZR ~
    Non of the HSPA+ version of Xperia ZR is getting the update based on Xperia Update Checker PC app.

  • Gifer

    with Xperia you can take a picture whenever you want in full HD better than Samsung… Oh, Oh… Almost forget something, “Lagsung” can’t do its own camera so it needs Sony’s help

  • jake

    This is horrible

  • Louis Caradine

    installing this firmware yesterday , seeing no major difference / no difference at all for daily usage

    but strange , i dont receive OTA update’s for sony built in media apps ( walkman , movies , album , movie creator , etc. is not the latest version and i dont get notification to update ) just myXperia apps gets the update through update centre

    and , i just notice clicking sound comes from the back of the phone occasionally when camera lens focusing to an object , i think it comes from the lens :( is that normal ? i havent notice that clicking sound before

    maybe i’m going back to 283 firmware

  • zam

    what the hell is this baidu problem ?

  • zam

    not yet received , for ZR c5502 , india !

  • Robin

    Is this update only available for Xperia ZR(C5503)??

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    It’s an application that connects your phone to servers in China. Search for the new update of myxperia and install it so this won’t happens again and the baidu folder will be eliminated.

  • Kapitän P


    Updated to 292, but it fucked up my xperia Z

    Album, music, an some other apps . etc does not work anymore.

  • Sonny

    Does anyone have an issue with this update?
    My camera no longer saves to the SD card and once I change the destination back to the external media, the camera does not save any photos. My internal memory is almost depleted now. Only option is to backup to computer and delete files. This is NOT GOOD
