Sony confirms new update (14.5.A.0.270) rolling for Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact and Z Ultra

by XB on 20th May 2015

in Firmware, Xperia Z1

2015-05-20 12.22.06A new Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware update for the Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z Ultra will start to roll today according to Sony. The new update will move the build number from 14.5.A.0.242 to version 14.5.A.0.270.

The update is currently only live on Telus Canada for the C6906 variant only, but it should start seeding for the other Xperia Z1 variants shortly (along with the Z1 Compact and Z Ultra). A number of people have received emails from Sony regarding this update over the last 12 hours or so, so it should be too long before it rolls.

The changelog should echo what was seen with the other bug-fixing Lollipop updates that were released for the Xperia Z2/Z3 recently. See below for details. Once you get the update, please don’t hesitate to post some pictures and impressions in the comments below.

Xperia Z1 update (14.5.A.0.270) changelog

– Ensured the lock screen / notification bar doesn’t indicate “no service” when the device has coverage
– Added a Sony feature; bringing back the “close-all-button” in the activity menu, so you can easily close all apps at once
– Unblocked devices with server policies (such as Exchange Active Sync for e-mail), to enable the new Lollipop lock-screen notifications
– Ensured the LED light is lit across all sound modes – and no longer offset by “silent”
– Made the necessary fixes to enable the easy movement of content from internal memory to external microSD card (something we saw affecting a few devices)
– Improved messaging functionality in Ultra stamina mode – some conversations could not be opened before in Ultra stamina mode

  • It is normal behaviour if you’re playing games and Android does that to get your game more RAM or if you have a lot of apps running in background fighting for RAM.
    I did not do anything about it as it stopped. Let’s see if anyone else faced the issue.

  • Igor Helal

  • Alex

    Where did you find the black theme?

  • Alex

    Looks like I will be giving this a miss if it is anything like the first release of 5.0 on the Z1 Compact. I have already reverted back to 4.4.4 after finding Lolipop far too slow, cumbersome and a sight for sore eyes with regards to the the interface, which looked awful. I wish Sony would re-introduce things like Facebook Inside Xperia, which I have used since the X10, and their own dialer and messaging apps rather than stock.

  • Jaissal S

    So when the .270 update is due, we will receive an email? That is pretty handy.

  • Khillo81

    I face it sometimes on my Z1. I have noticed as someone else has noted that it is a RAM issue. When my device has been running for a few days on end, this issue becomes more frequent. Once I reboot the phone, it is resolved for a few days and then becomes more frequent. Either uninstall the apps you don’t really Need/use or prevent them from running in the Background when you don’t Need them. Good luck!

  • Khillo81

    I have received the email about the new Firmware for my Z1. It says that I could connect my phone to my Computer and update now or wait a few days and update OTA. I guess I’ll do the latter. Not in a hurry to update since I’m thankfully not facing the Problems that are supposed to be addressed by the update. To those who have updated: is there anything else you have noticed with this update (besides what the Change log says)?

    It’s a normal behaviour of chrome. At recent ask me anything by google employees someone ask this question to them and they replied it happens for better memory management.
    So it’s not an OS issue not it’s sony issue.

  • Vahid Sanati

    lollipop was slow, producing heat and draining battery on first days of update for me (first update I mean). but as time passed it went more more smoother, cooler and longer battery life than ever not seen even on kitkat. you should give the os some time.even days!

    I don’t think this addresses the memory leak issues with Lollipop on the Ultra.
    The OS on Lollipop is a bit laggy/buggy as well.

  • Ayad Fahos

    When will get upbdate. To z3 dual to get all close button and fix the bug

  • Xperia Z Ultra no give new up!

  • apolloa

    I am seriously loving all these updates Sony is throwing out it’s doors faster than fast flowing river!! Great stuff! My Z3 tablet sure is liking it :) I’m currently on 5.0.2 in the UK. Google are also now getting 5.1 up for the Nexus devices so I can’t see it being long before Sony launch that too.

  • ash

    You are on kit kat till now? Anyway we are talking about second lollipop update here

  • ash

    This is another update to fix bugs in that version but it’s still 5.0.2

  • ash

    It just started, will take a week or two for all world to recieve. So wait

  • MarcoLorenzo

    I would love to know how the hell they managed to release an update and forgot something like the Close All button in the activity menu. It’s like when my Xperia Z2 Tablet got updated and suddenly developed a problem with the screen rotate function (which was later fixed). Such carelessness, it’s no wonder their mobile division is in the red.

  • ash

    They didn’t forget, some people like me don’t use close all button as I see it un necessary. They initially didn’t added the button and after public demand they added again. Simple right?

  • ash

    Use for some day, and it will be smother after some days. Remember to reboot your phone everyday

  • MarcoLorenzo

    So you’re saying they deliberately chose to take out a function that existed in previous versions and wasn’t bothering anyone? Care to provide citation? And I suppose they also deliberately messed up the screen rotate function (and the screen unlock in an earlier version) with my Z2 Tablet? So they’re not careless, they just make poor decisions. Good to know!

  • Siyam Hossain

    Still no update for my z ultra. Waiting.

  • Gary Ohanian

    skipped .242 and when directly from KK to LP .270. They must have help .242 back to test .270 in Aus.

    This update brought many annoying features. Especially the locking screen. First I have to pull up the unlock screen and after that I can unlock the phone. Close all button has really no effect at all, app switch screen has now even fancier, unneccerrasily heavy animation, color theme is from my second grade artbook and those new, bigger icons made my phone look like one of those handicapped models for elderly folks.

  • jag

    It’s an android 101 thing as they’ve (expert brothers here in the forum) always explained. You may atleast know how the system works before you go rant in the comments section. It has been always like that since ics if i remember it correctly.

    The sheer arrogance displayed here is just pathetic. God forbid someone criticises a company that you have no affiliation with other than owning their product. As a developer, I know more than most about how RAM, running apps etc. are handled on Android. But that doesn’t excuse them taking out a function that people can find useful and if not, could simply not use. I wouldn’t be surprised though if they simply forgot about it, just like how they forgot to put a restart button in the power menu for so long and the various other glitches they often introduce with a new firmware. If you want to keep taking it up your butt though then be my guest :)

    You already know the answer but you still whine about it. Maybe you should try to make your own custom rom and do whatever you want. You’ve said it yourself, you’re a developer. Develop something cool for yourself then share it maybe and maybe others will acknowledge it.

    And IMHO, I don’t think that I am the one who looks pathetic here.

  • frageniemals

  • MarcoLorenzo

    Wow, can you be more stupid? Knowing the answer has nothing to do with my complaint. I complained because I think it was either negligence or stupidity that they left out a function that they hurriedly put back like several occasions in the past. The fact is, you can simply choose not to use the close all button. They didn’t need to take it out. It’s like taking out the option for installing from unknown sources just because it *may* lead to a security breach. Damn you are thick.

    My husband and I were trying to make a child for years, it wasn’t until we used the information from here ( http://tinyurl.CoM/getPregnant12 ) that we finally got it right!

    You will lose root if updating the phone, as long as you haven’t unlocked your bootloader you are fine

  • f!n41 3ch0 31!t3 4ctu41

    my bootloader was unlocked but i figured it out by locking bootloader using flashtool then tried unrooting through super su app and then connect it for update and it work
    the only problem i have with the new update is the icon is very big in previous update icons were pretty good at size but this update just ruined it so i have to use aviate launcher

    My Z1 Compact (U.A.E.) shows .270 update via Sony PC Companion, but i have still not updated to .242 due to its poor review/feedback i read earlier.
    Hence I’m still on KitKat 4.4.4.
    Should i go for .270 ? Kindly advise.

  • I faced battery issue after upgrading to .242; but after a couple of tricks, everything is smooth now. If you upgrade to lollipop, be ready for ‘larger’ icons.

  • It should be available via PC Companion.

  • Rahul

    @raheeladnan:disqus : Thanks for the response.
    Did the battery discharging issue got resolved by itself after couple of days or you had to do something? If Yes then what?

  • Clearing the cache (holding power button and volume UP together. Device shuts down with three vibrations) did the trick for me.

    After lollipop upgrade, my phone’s battery drained 50% faster, and normal restart & factory reset didn’t help. Luckily, I found the aforementioned trick somewhere. Battery lasts much longer than Kit Kat now.

    Overall, I am satisfied now; Fresh look, Apps and the ‘feel’ of using latest OS.

    just flash … Originally was Nordic Combined (KitKat), but no Lollipop was released that time.. so I flashed to Customized UK (Lollipop …. 242)… When this release coming out, I reflashed back to “original” Nordic Combined (Lollipop… 270).

    did u guy get update yet? malaysian z1 user..

  • Rahul


  • Try this for battery issue.

    Press and hold both Power Button and Up Volume Key; Device should shutdown with 03 vibrations (note three quick vibrations).
    Power up and it fixed all battery and heating issues. Lollipop tastes “sweet” now.

  • Smuti

    Never got the first update for my Z1C (14.5.A.0.242), but at least I got this one on the 22nd. As of now battery seems to be worse, did 2 factory resets. We’ll see in due time.
    Was really hoping we’ll get tap to wake on the Z1 series that they introduced on the Z2, eh. :(

  • Scorus Adrian

    How is the battery life now? Any changes? :)

  • Riju Pal

    What is the size of update in z1,plz tell?

  • I have upgraded mine to .270 and the device is so slow it’s nearly unusable. Anyone else having these issues?

  • Smuti

    Gotten an mail from Sony that the update is now available also as OTA.

  • Ken

    It’s eol for Malaysia user!?

  • Sonja

    I do not like lollipop. They don’t help me at Sony, I want my older version back!! Have a Z1…. what can I do?

  • Manoj Bhagat

    it was frustrating that I am unable to get the update for C6602 in Delhi :(

  • Leo Glag

    OTA in Croatia – today

    Welcome screen with notifications.

    Relatively nice make up, changed notification / quick settings area.

    All in all, for now, – not so bad… needs time to see what is better and/or missing…

  • Rahul

    Are you facing any battery drain issues after update?

  • Leo Glag

    I don’t think so, no.

    Not yet anyway….

  • Philippe

    The Tethering still does not work with this version 14.5.A.0.270

  • DE L TA

    Is there tap to wake feature in this?

  • Jaissal S

    Received the update OTA just this morning! Saw the update on PC Companion a couple of days ago though.

  • GeordieGadgee

    Just had the.270 update OTA for my Z1 (Vodafone UK). Just seeing how the battery life is and the overall speed over the next few days. Had to do a factory reset when Lollipop was initially installed, hoping to avoid that this time….

  • Tweety

    It works for me. Z1 compact with CE3 .270 firmware. I’m just using it to send this message. Actually I’m using it to the max by using 4G network in Croatia, downloading ISO file of an linux distribution, listening to music on youtube at the same time (can’t write message here and watch video at the same time :-) ), and upgrading Windows with a few patches. No problem at all.

  • Ariyadi Putra

    Already update on my Z Ultra to this version just now. But one thing that I dont like it is, all the icon on the home screen become bigger than before…unfortunately I cannot find how to adjust it… Sony, please give back the small icon…

  • Akshay Joshi

    try downloading a suitable previous KitKat version using XperiFirm (it may not be for your region, but at least you can have what you need) try this (though it says, installing Lollipop, I assume, that if you are able to download KitKat, then you should be able to install it by following the instructions here…

  • miske

    Yes that is a true. Do you now how to change icon sizze, because this is to irritate :)

  • daoud dimae Boulad

    Guys. After trying the new update, what is the feedback?

  • Saya Bisa
