Android Lollipop (14.5.A.0.242) certified for Xperia Z1, Z Ultra and Z1 Compact

by XB on 25th March 2015

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1


Xperia Z1_14.5.A.0.242Looks like owners of the Sony Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra will be joining the Android Lollipop family shortly. New firmware with build number 14.5.A.0.242 has just been certified for all variants of the above handsets with the strong likelihood of this being Lollipop.

Sony said that other variants of the Xperia Z series would start to see the update in around two weeks. This was last week, so potentially we could see Lollipop rolling for the Xperia Z1 series and Z Ultra by the end of this month. We’ll keep you posted on further developments.

Xperia Z1_14.5.A.0.242

  • Yassine Toumdi

    I just checked an hour ago and there were nothing ! that was quick :D

  • Oh I can smell it already, that sweet sweet Lollipop smell (Z1C owner)

  • ozanyalcn45

    Finaly :D

  • Guest

    Thank you!!

  • David Hvatov

    lollipop on Z2 sucks. System equalizer doesn’t work, only in walkman.

  • damian01211

    Wow, Sony is on fire!!

  • Delyan Mihov

    Just before few hours there was nothing new certified for the Z Ultra, I posted a comment “hoping for lollipop to be certified in the upcoming weeks” and boom after 30 minuets after the comment I saw a certification for the Z Ultra :)

  • Joe Black

    Fuck yes. Finally.

  • Joe Black

    Same here man

  • Joe Black

    Same lol, not a chance in hell I could wait for a carrier update.

  • Alex_rac

    In my opinion this lollipop will make z1, z ultra and z1 c owner angry
    the build number is way lower than the one certified for z2/z3 this make me think that there will not be any additional feature for them ( no tap to wake , no supervivid ecc ) the chance for sony to equalize the features of their past/present flagship is lost…
    z2 and z ultra owner here…
    P.s sorry for my bad english

  • Clarence Alvarado

    This is really, really is it!

  • You rly should wipe your phone after major update…

  • Dustin Pelc

    Z Ultra FTW!!!

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Wish you would know that Z1, Z1 compact and Z Ultra shares the same Rhine platform, and Z2, Z3, and Z3 compact shares the same Shining platform.

    That just means their build numbers would all be the same for every platform.

  • rus_media

    Wish(May be!) Z and ZL will get lollipop before 2016. :P

  • Alex_rac

    unfortunally you are wrong since the z2 was running on 17.1.2.A.0.314 when was on android 4.4.2 and then moved to 23.x.x.x.x when updated to android 4.4.4
    4.4.2 same ui as z1 , 4.4.4 same ui as z3

  • Clarence Alvarado

    I didn’t say it was for the same android version, I said same build number. There’s a reason Sony did the 17 build number for Z2 on its initial release, but now, it shares the same build number with Z3, making it having the same software goodies Z3 has.

    Knowing this platform thing is based on the SoC used. Yukon for SD400, Fusion3 for SD S4 Pro, Rhine for SD800, and Shinano for SD801.

  • Alex_rac

    then its exactly what i typed in my first comment z1/z1c/z ultra will not have the z2/z3 goodies on lollipop

  • John Doe

    And lollipop for ZR?

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    Stupid and useless comment.
    Z will get Lollipop soon. Z3/Z2 first, then Z1 series and finally Z series.

  • Tim Rox Westerholm

    Nice, shortly after I’ll be ready to upgrade my Tablet Z & my older brother’s Xperia Z to Lollipop :-D

  • rus_media

  • Omeed Heydari

    How can I backup all my Apps?
    I’m not rooted, and I’m not intersted in rooting either,
    If I Don’t wipe my phone, what could happend to it performance?
    Because From 4.2.2 to 4.3 and from 4.3 to 4.4.2 and then 4.4.4
    I hadn’t wipe my phone, and on 4.4.4 for first time It had some lags, but after first Restart, It’s Doing flawlessly, not even a small lag on performance Till now.

  • Paul M

    probably going to wait now until 5.1, and even then only when it has been become well understood by the community.

    don’t want my phone to be partly crippled in some way and have to spend hours re-rooting it, backing it up, downgrading and restoring it… assuming that it is possible to get root on lollipop yet!

    Well the Z has been around for longer, and a lot of places sold it as a midrange while the Z2 was on the shelves. It’s very possible there might be more Z owners than Z3. It’s like saying the PS4 is their best selling console to date, but we all know there’s plenty more PS3s

    Don’t install manually if you are not sure what are you doing. Use pc companion app for the same.

  • ash

    He is talking about 5.1 not 5.0. Currently sony is releasing 5.0.2 .

  • ash

    Use pc companion app

  • Joe Black

    Don’t. You can flash any official firmware AS LONG AS IT’S FOR THE SAME PHONE. Means, don’t try flashing Z3 firmware on Z, to avoid any unnecessary bricking. And it would definitelly happen.

    In my opinion, they should at least update Z1 Compact to 5.1.

  • kk47042

    Any news?
    I would say we have to wait at least until monday. I really hope that z1 and z1 compact would get the update at the same time just like z3 and z3 compact

  • kawawangpinas101

    Did you guys update the z ultra on phone or using computer?

  • [S]unjay

    Lame…

  • Kleyton Hunter

    “Sony said that other variants of the Xperia Z series would start to see the update in around two weeks” i don’t understand,this include xperia zl too?

  • Rishi Sharma

    For those cribbing about how painfully slow the updates are released by sony , probably haven’t had a taste of it from LG. :(

    another person here, who just wants hits on his site. bullshit man. go to hell.

  • No offence but you look pissed. Maybe not by me . but by someone else. I can certainly say that.
    If there’s a person trying to share this news over at his site , some relevant content then what’s the harm in it ? Particularly for you ? If you find it unfair , please do not visit or ignore the comment instead of crying over it.
    I am not trying to be rude , but you are simply going overboard over something which is genuine. If you look at it , you will see that I have added some additional information into it , and then shared.
    At least spend a minute trying to analyse what it means before using those precious few minutes of your replying with curses.

  • hamza irfan

    Yeah I’m udate my Sony Xperia Z2 since 2 weeks ago from xperiaifirm it’s awesome

  • mukul verma

    i am not pissed by you or someone else, i am glad that you sony fan boy like i am, but what you had written in your site is same matter that i had already read in this site, & you had written in your comment about LG, but when i had read in your site , there is nothing a word about LG had been written.
    i also want to read what happen to LG when they updated to Lollipop, what bugs are there in LG rom, but what you had written is already known to everybody. there is no change in any thing what you had written.

  • In case if you thought that the link was about LG , then my bad.
    I mentioned that I shared this update over at my blog though. maybe I should have been more descriptive.

    On a side note , I would be posting about LG too , pretty soon.( I won one as a matter of fact ). But the way they have been delaying the updates for quite a while , it’s next to impossible to say anything about it.
    Now, Just to iterate with the original comment , I have already been ditched once , not going the same way again with LG. Sony is still better in terms of updates to be honest .

    WTF sony is doin its been two week even z3 had no taste of lollipop except the baltic and nordic regions

  • Waiting for my Tablet Z. (although I want an excuse to move to Tablet Z4)

  • ganesh thunder

    1st week of April we might get an update from sony

  • ganesh thunder

    Use Xperifirm and flashtool if lollipop is released for ur phone in Baltic and Nordic region

  • u fanboy?

    Z1 is still not 2 years old so they should update it to 5.1
    Z will definitely not be updated.

  • He is not asking about 5.1. He is asking for Lolipop. It could be 5.0.2.
    It’s not what you think. It’s what they officially said they will do.
    And they have officially said that whole Z series will go to Lolipop.
    Something you can verify by visiting their official blog and/or the support page of the product. It does say next update: 5.0 (Lolipop).
    So… you are wrong.

  • Well you are wrong.
    First of all who said about a 2 year support cycle? Google asks for 18 months. Then it’s a matter of the manufacturer.
    Both Z1 and Z will go to Lolipop. It’s what they officially said they will do. And they have officially said that whole Z series will go to Lolipop.
    Something you can verify by visiting Sony Xperia official blog and/or the support page of the product. It does say next update: 5.0 (Lolipop).
    We don’t know if Z1 will go to 5.1. Probably not, but not sure.

  • It’s Monday. Was seriously expecting the update to come today.

  • Bogdan Apostol

    I want Lolipop for my xperia Z1 ……this week please

  • kk47042

    i believe we all expected it for today.

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    Because I suffer from abnormal emotional calmness (i.e. i need real excitement to get my adrenaline pumping), and i get really excited expecting new stuff, i got Z3, Z2, ZUltra, and ZR. So i get multiple adrenaline rush LOL

  • Chan Kin Cheung

    there are plenty of excuses, bro. One being that it is 99.99999% likely that lollipop is pre-loaded on Z4 Tab

  • Joe Black

    Still not too late.

  • Wrestler Kishore Cena

    ya

  • Jaissal S

    I’m waiting for the update on my Z1. I hope it arrives in the next couple of weeks or so. My good university mate has the Z1 Compact who is also waiting. I can’t wait for some Lollipop licking action :P

  • kk47042
  • mukul verma

    wow t2 ultra & c3 will receive lollipop..

  • Amel_Marie

    Already 10:00am dude.

  • DoNotCare

    Meh, I’ve given up waiting for Lollipop for my ZR. If anyone’s as impatient as I then I would recommend the CyanogenMod 12 DOGO build (12.03.2015). It’s extremely stable and doesn’t come with any of the bloated crap Sony loves to lace their OSes with.

  • kk47042

    sony mobile croatia just answered me that rollout should start in a few days

  • Joe Black

    I kinda wrote that 8 hours ago, when it was 7am

  • Jaissal S

    on Sony’s Twitter account they confirm that Z2 worldwide roll out will start from next week…So I’m guessing that Z1 will start from the week after.

  • theblucandy

    U r retard.. I hope ur phone gets cut off from sony database and they don’t recognize you ever. U don’t deserve any update and u will never get one lunatic fanboy

  • theblucandy

    And yeah I hope you get your ass on fire

  • kk47042

    those few days could end up like a month or so. but i’ll continue to hope :P

  • King Majnu

    What about India….??? Why Sony Always put Ugrade at last to india??
    still no-one received lollipop update in India in any xperia devices ?
    just Why Sony??
    its always late to India. and India is the largest market of the smartphone network.
    then why disappoint them?
    Please Answer that question i have twit to sonyxperia but still there are no responces
    JUST WHY THAT????????

  • ?????????

    ??????????????????????????????

  • What about reading the latest news from sony personally? Actually only Z3-series is rolling out. Next week Z2-series… Understand, fine.

  • Would be funny, if we’ll get 5.1 from the beginning mid April :D

  • King Majnu

    same dude there are no updates for z3 also in india.
    understand..???

  • Just wait. There are also no updates in some other regions. It’s staged rollout. If you talk about Z3, why comment under a Z1-article?

  • King Majnu

    i have said that there are no updates in any xperia.
    and i have z ultra. i have received update of 4.4.4 at december which are rolled from june
    so , sony is always make late update in india

  • kk47042

    You Guys should be ashamed of your self as samsung has released lollipop in S4 before you guys and that’s a big disappointment for me and other sony users as I am using sony phones since I started using mobile.
    you told us that you will release it in first month of 2015 and to hell with you guys.
    now I don’t think you guys should release you lollipop you guys should be ashamed.

  • Akash Kainth

    I updated my Xperia Z1 to Lollipop today. I was a big fan of its camera and use to feel proud to have z1 due to camera quality. But after the update, its camera sucks, the quality is like 3.2MP mobile cameras. I am very very very disappointed with the camera response, whenever i launch camera, phone gets slow. I wish i could downgrade to Kitkat. :( :( :(
