Xperia Z1s Android Lollipop update certified (14.5.B.0.220)

by XB on 5th April 2015

in Android, Firmware, Xperia Z1


wpid-img_20150404_213145.jpgLooks like Android Lollipop will be heading to T-Mobile Xperia Z1s (C6916) owners soon as a new build number 14.5.B.0.220 has just been certified by the PTCRB. This moves the firmware number from ‘14.4’ Android 4.4.4 KitKat to ‘14.5’ which we’d expect to be Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. We’ll keep you posted once it starts to roll.

    Since from 10 days…..no updates only certification is going on

    Hope this process will be over soon or in next week…as sony always says!

  • One day my friends, one day…

  • WilliamTell13

    Woohoo!! Didn’t think it was going to come to T-Mobile until at least like June. Stoked!

  • Justin Myo Pinion

    And that “next week” is never coming…

  • aryan1357

    after i flash the nordic firmware the baseband version is unknow what should i do..

  • Andrej

    What about Z Ultra Lollipop ftf?

  • Andrej

    What about Z Ultra Lollipop ftf?

  • Azar

    Flash the original one back. Use XperiFirm to find the correct one for time device and correct region. What device are you on anyways?

  • Azar

    These certifications are NOTHING to us without the system itself! This is like giving us water without a cup or bottle to drink it!

  • Lukas

    So it means that update for Z1 Compact is closer than ever before? :D

  • Govindaraj Meena

    Last 10 days only certified, my xperia zr maybe next week certificate. Than rolling next month, in India maybe next year. Good sony

  • Omeed Heydari

    whats the point of certifications when there is no release?

  • aryan1357

    i’m using xperia z2 d6502 and flashed the nordic firmware
    i have also tried to flash the baseband files of backup firmware.
    i had observed one thing that when i flash the lollipop firmware the baseband version in the settings is listed unknown.

  • Azar

    Are you sure you have downloaded firmware for 6502 and not 6503? If yes, then download 4.4 and flash, see if that helps. Also, is your IMEI visible in About device > status, or does it say NULL?

  • Maxx Tan

    all tease no game, makes Sony weak

  • aryan1357

    i downloaded the lollipop fw of d6503 as its not available on d6502 right now and flashed

    right now i flashed back to kitkat 2 d6502 and it works as before.

  • Azar

    You have the 3G variant that’s why baseband got corrupted when flashing 4G firmware on yours. Btw, check XperiFirm, L is now released for your 6502. Happy flashing :)

  • Azar

    Hahaha in your dreams. Right now I’m enjoying official L on my Samsung devices… Happy Lollipop!

  • What are you doing on an Xperia site?? But I gotta admit Samsung really upped their game lately. Unfortunately the Note 4 and S6 wasn’t out yet and Z1S is the only one that fits my need at that time. Perhaps Note 5,when USB C becomes mainstream and not using the swipe fingerprint scanner.

  • Azar

    Refreshing the site every 5 mins in hope for L on Tab z… :'(
    Also, Swipe finger has ended its life since the S6.

    xperiablog 75$ hourly by doing this… < started working online, completing some basic jobs that only requires from you a computer and internet access and I am happier than ever… It's been 6 months since i started this and i got paid so far total of 36,000 bucks… Basicly i profit close to 80 bucks/h and work for 3-4 hrs most of the days.Best part to whole this thing is that you can decide when to work yourself and for how long and you get a paycheck at the end of each week.

    A$$hole

  • rus_media

    To make people believe that they are working on that. You have to wait longest time in the mobile industry to update any on your Sony Mobile.

  • rus_media

    Or may be next year. If they don’t say that they are having some problem.

  • rus_media

    I doubt even 75% of Z3 users are still waiting for Lollipop.

  • Since I update my Z2 to Lollipop,.Xperia Blog looks like this :( any help?

  • Kenneth Ring

    Looks like this on my phone

  • Fadi Obaya

    Leave!

  • Azar

    What!?

  • Amel_Marie

    I hope tomorrow we will get the lollipop update.

  • Amel_Marie

    Did you guys flash your phone with China firmware or something?

  • bilomar

    Same on mine after lollipop. In kitkat it showed nothing at all and on my mom’s s5 it shows the number of comments

  • Amel_Marie

    I think its from your browser. Check the settings. Maybe it’ll fix it.

  • ????????

    :)) And I too, but… XperiaBe…

  • ????????

    It turns out that on the contrary. This new software of Loolipop for D5503

  • Amel_Marie

    :)

  • ????????
  • Amel_Marie

    Ugh, im tired of hearing these kind of explanations. i dont know when exactly “soon” would be. Have patient my friend, it’ll worth the wait.

  • ????????

    At least, tomorrow (hopefully, the first of the week) day will let us know when we expect, maybe…

    Yes, often they say “soon”. But it seems to me that to postpone nowhere else. I’ll wait a minimum of “next week” that would never languish.

  • ????????

    “SOONy mobile communications”

    Sound very good in my opinion. Who agrees – like. ))

  • mukul verma

    this type mostly common in aosp rom, when i flashed aosp rom, i get this in chrome.

  • Mars

    Are you 10 years old ?

  • Justin Myo Pinion

    I recently flashed cm12 custom software on my Z1 and it happened to me on chrome returned to official kitkat and it’s gone but seeing it in official lollipop it’s weird.

  • ????????

    A good sense of humor :) For jokes Sony..
    But You made a joke stupid.

  • aryan1357

    there no lollipop for the d6502 till now i checked.

  • Azar

    oh sorry, thought 23.0 is Lollipop :D

  • brick

    Where is lollipop for my Xperia S Sony? And what about the Arc S? I’m so mad, never buying Sony ever again!

  • brick

    The Samsung lollipop update sucks, no new features, no raw, no multi user, no new interface, but they reduced the battery life and introduced many bugs. All of you guys thinking the grass will be greener on Samsung should really get one of those shitphones,you deserve it.

    You can go on any Samsung blog and it will be full of people complaining about bugs. With Samsung it’s always like that, my S4 was plagued by random reboots on kitkat, and now battery drain and lag on lollipop. On top of that the update was only cosmetic since no apps were updated and no new features were introduced. They also kept the factory underclock they introduced in kitkat that will reduce performance in half (Google galaxy s4 throttle under heavy load).

    Tl;dr buy a Scamsung, you deserve it.

  • Azar

    go to chrome settings, untick “Merge apps & Tabs”, then click OK

  • Azar

    this is because you do not read whatever it says in the first screen when entering chrome for the first time! fot God’s sake, JUST READ EM!

  • Azar

    go to chrome settings, untick “Merge apps & Tabs”, then click OK

    check everyday with XperiFirm

  • rus_media

    If you follow Sony for long, you must know that they were never on their words.

  • ash

    Same here in kit kat as well. And the option you are saying is not present in kit kat.

  • Azar

    i know, thats only in L, which puts tabs as separate apps in the recent apps.

  • Mars

    That was not a good joke. Next time you post a joke plese try to be a bit more original.

  • ????????

    I don’t even think that someone built this phrase to me. Let not the original..
    Maybe it’s not looks good in English (I’m Russian), although I know that “y” on the end of a word often expresses an adverb; know that “soon” is already an adverb.. Well, okay, okay ) . Could not pay attention.

    Which Easter? This year, or the next one? Hahah :D

  • notagoat

    They weren’t kidding when they said “lollipop will be released at the start of the year for Z series phones.”

  • Justin Myo Pinion

    FYI I deactivated the merge thing even before opening a single page and the blog site still showed like in the guy’s screenshot I also have a nexus 4 officially lollipop’d and its the same

  • Amel_Marie

    z3 is my first sony device. I used to be a samsung user. But i must say i really love z3. Unfortunately, im kinda dissapointed with sony after service. The update takes way to long to come.

  • Amel_Marie

    You betcha!

  • Nah man, Note series and S series after the Note 4 are different. They actually listened to their customers’ complains. That camera bested all Sony Z series, build quality are better (but granted still worse than Sony), also software keeps on improving without removing features, bloatware are decreased.

    I personally like a few features in Touchwiz, like multi-window, Ultra-saving battery mode, different camera modes, etc.. But to each their own. I wouldn’t jump into Samsung right away but if they keep improving software and hardware wise, I might. Cuz let’s face it, original Z to Z4 will probably look the same with minor differences and spec bumps.

  • Wow, the original Z? That’ll take a while, even the Z1s haven’t had any update so far.
    Yeah, thank God for that, Note 5 will be a beast worth my money :D

  • Allenwtface

    good one buddy. lol

  • Allenwtface

    WOW.look amazing. where did you find this ROM?

  • Mars

    I better stop judging people or …..what ?!?!?!?!

  • Mars

    Dude please learn better english if you are going for a career in forum trolling. I don’t know if I should feel offended or what. Please don’t come with the excuse that english is not your native language because it’s not mine also.

  • rus_media

    You are noob

  • ?????? ??????

    I am a user of sony xperia z ultra…Its a nice phone..I love sony products..But All time Sony has a big problem to release their new update.If they said update will release on next week then it will release will after 6 month late…why sony?? why??? why are you always late????????..

  • Azar

    This is only in lollipop

  • Azar

    How can it not look the same? It’s the same webpage. the webpage itself will look the same no matter what system you’re on.

  • bilomar

    Still the same, no big deal it’s just on this site.

  • Azar

    I didn’t get ya. What looks wrong?

  • bilomar

    The Chinese symbols on xperiablog

  • Azar

    Ohh yeah, those ones! I can see them on my S4 Lollipop, but before it wasn’t like that even though I was on the same system.

  • Joe Black

    Ma pederi.

  • raju

    Translate plz

  • ????????

    I don’t like Russian?.. ))

    Do not agree. There have been cases of meeting deadlines. There was even an upgrade Z1 compact, which I wrote on Xperiablog, will not repeat.

  • ????????

    His nick starts with “rus”, but he is silent about it.

  • Karthik

    I hope someday 30 years later my grandchildren will get the Lollipop update…

  • Ali Bach-Tobji

    Anyone get the lollipop update for z2 ?

  • ????????

    ))) Baltics&Nordics

  • This version is not published yet :)

  • Ali Bach-Tobji

    Sony said z2 user will get the update this week

  • Vrr

    Sony’s week never come :3

  • ????????

    Yes, already from 17th of March:

  • Sandun Prabash Perera

    where is the f*&^% update ?

  • Ali Bach-Tobji

    Nordic and baltic was released since mars 17th but it said that they will rollout the update for other region this week

  • Ali Bach-Tobji
  • ????????

    “rollout the update for other region this week” – yes, I know.

    But you didn’t specify a region, when asked in the first message.

  • Pat Ron Shiruba

    Karma kicking in. Go to Samsung and circle jerk with them

  • Ahmad

    We waited too long Please SONY. We want the latest version of android 5.1.1

  • ????????

    :D
    “We”?!? We know that 5.1.1 is still only being developed in Google.

  • ????????

    I was wrong
    (

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Hey, on Twitter, Sony Xperia News updated their status about Lollipop for Xperia Z2. It’s rolling!

  • ????????

    So, over the next week – I’m guessing ) . Though the Z2 has continued to update only today. Waiting for Z1 compact.

  • Amel_Marie

    I dont understand why sony rolling out the z2 first but not z3? I thought the flagship will got it first.

  • ????????

    Look here – http://www.xperiablog.net/2015/04/05/xperia-z1s-android-lollipop-update-certified-14-5-b-0-220/#comment-1948139259
    + 30th of March was the expansion update Z3-series.
    Ie it turns out that the sequence is not broken. Another thing, why are all modifications of each model do not have time to upgrade to the next model (e.g., Xperia Z3 – D6603, D6633, D6633; other modifications D6616, D6643, L55t, L55u, SO-01G, SOL26, 401SO – operator, they are updated by the mobile operators, forget about them:) ). For each modification of a model update depends on the country – any country have already received, some have not yet received.
    But that’s not all, Maria (may I call you so?) :) . Sony updates their devices in the order opposite to the order of their release. However, Sony recently wrote that the following will be updated Z1, Z1 compact and Z Ultra and T2 Ultra and C3. But they are not created in that order?!
    I hope the translation won’t prevent to understand the meaning of the message )

  • Amel_Marie

    I dont understand, why sony have to roll out update in opposite order? Maria? LOL

  • ????????

    I would like to know. Illogical, unfair to the old owners (they need to wait longer).
    Okay, Marie! :)

  • Amel_Marie

    Okay Vladimir :)

  • ????????

    Marie, can I communicate with You in any social network? :-[ :)

  • Amel_Marie

    i had a facebook once, but my parents forced me to delete my account, thanks to their overprotective moves

  • ????????

    Sorry.. I Really wanted to talk to You about this and that, but here we’ll clutter up the forum..

  • Amel_Marie

    Yeah i guess so,

  • Jon Carlson

    Any news on the lollipop update for the z1s??
