New update (23.4.A.0.580) starts seeding for Xperia Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact

by XB on 13th August 2015

in Firmware, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 series

Xperia Z3 Compact_23.4.A.0.580_1A new firmware update with build number 23.4.A.0.580 has started to roll for select European carriers on the Xperia Z2 (D6503 only), Xperia Z3 (D6603 only) and Xperia Z3 Compact (D5803 only). The update includes a fix for the Stagefright exploit we reported on last week.

So far it is only live for Three Austria and Vodafone Spain/UK. It is unclear whether this is a carrier-specific update or whether availability will expand to other regions in the coming days. If you’ve downloaded the update, let us know if you’ve noticed any other changes.

  • theskig

    Good old FM radio :)

  • I want support for W10 :(

  • z3user

    Is the Sony Clock back with the Hour in bold?

  • Matt

    would also love to know that , if it is then it is perfect.

    just need to wait for the pre rooted and recovery ROM :=)

  • z1c

    where the hell is 5.1 for z1 compact?!!@!@!@!@@!@!

  • Alexx

    “Attention to details” then they dont fix the status bar icons…

  • Matt
  • Alexx

    Thanks but I am on CM12 :) I’ll wait for Sony fix…

  • Matt

    youre very welcomed mate ;)

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I’m really glad that they fix and send fast updates. Hope they will fix it and seed lollipop update to other devices, and camera api2 for at least Z3+ and upcoming devices. What’s so hard for them to provide it?

  • Alexx

    However, I meant this

    It’s a little gap but you can easily notice it when your eyes look at the screen

  • Amimanot

    Wait, did they finally fix the fm radio in thls version?

  • theskig

    I didn’t know there are issues with radio. Just noticed the icon on status bar.
    Btw I still have KK on my Z3 Dual and radio works perfectly, last used it yesterday.

  • xperiaDROID

    Slowpoke Sony, looks like I’ll have to stick with the thirsty 5.0.2 on my Z for a while.

  • Amimanot

    Oh… And here I thought they finally fixed it. Well the fm radio was sort of broken in lollipop. It wouldn’t output sound (neither to the speakers nor the headphones) unless you open the trackid app from within the radio. Once you exit trackid though the sound would stop again.

  • Daniel Craig

    I do hope so it’s very ugly with both being bold.

  • raju

    Mee tooo

  • theskig

    Oh dear…
    I think I’ll never update my Z3 :)

  • DarkPigeon

    I believe that the problem with the FM radio is the “Ok Google” detection from any screen. When this is enabled the FM radio won’t output any audio unless you lock the device. I got 5.1 on my Z3C and the issue is still there

  • Giuszep0

    I’m just wondering where the estimation full charge Icon at the bottom of the screen while charging has gone!

  • Ibrahem Salah

    Show picture please

  • Giuszep0

    Picture of?

  • theskig

    That fu**ing “OK google” also blocked BT calls on my girlfriend’s S4. So she cannot use them on the Smart Band Talk. I figured out to solve the problem but sometimes it happens again.

  • Ibrahem Salah

    How the icon isn’t visible to you

  • Amimanot

    And that works. I totally forgot about that. Seems like the bug that appeared and fixed in KK is back. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Daniel Craig

    That’ll never happen.

  • Matt

    thank you for the explanation . . hmm do you mean that the wifi icon is vertically misaligned ?

  • Daniel Craig


  • Judging by earlier Vodafone announcements this might be the VoLTE update for their networks.

  • It does not appear immediately.

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    He talks about the charging info on the lock screen. It was a really useful feature but it’s gone with the 5.1 update.

  • Giuszep0

    Yes exactly. Was a very good feature!

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    I’ve been experiencing a strange problem with my Z3 since the 5.1 update. When I make a phone call, my voice does not reach to the person on the other side of the call. Once the phone starts to behave like this, the only solution that I could find to get rid of the problem is to restart the phone. The problem occurs frequently, like once in a day. I couldn’t find the cause yet. Hope there will be a fix for it soon.

  • Sweggity

    disable noise cancellation

  • Sadman Khan

    You’re not the only one. I made this thread called “Skype Issue on 5.1.1” on . You can post this comment there too. The more, the merrier :P

  • Finally! Hope it fixes some bugs I’m having with small apps and bad battery life on my Z2.

  • Alexx

    Yeah :) also battery and clock are in a random position lol
    If you do this in Kitkat, you’ll see all the icons aligned

  • blurb8

    This update fixes the worst android security issue in history and you are whining about 5.1 update? Whats wrong with people?

  • Will Komba

    what about D5833?? for the z3 compact

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    Thanks, I just posted on your thread. Below there is a suggestion from Sweggity. Anybody tried that ?

  • Matt

    pity isn’t it ? i agree with you, whilst the new more material-esque icon are pretty good , but the position should be corrected.

    ill just ignore it for now. while my z3 still in the repair centre, waiting for screen replacement. Is there anyone here come form germany?

  • Arch9

    Still no news, just wait.

  • Zhan

    I have the same issue in my Z3, but the noise cancellation already been disabled before, so I’m afraid that this is not the solution! ((

  • Sadman Khan

    I didn’t try it though :/

  • Vahid Sanati

    is z1 forgotten?

  • allan

    Z2 in nordic region please

  • Dale Smart

    I have the same issue
    i’ve found a way around it
    quickly press loudspeaker on and off then it’s fine

  • Joseph Pamplona

    Thanks, I’ll try this when i can. My remedy has been to restart the phone. Not very good

  • Willian Quah

    Z1 been forgotten

  • Arpan

    I had the exact same issue on my Z2 after the 5.1 update, and solved it. You will have to disable the “ok google” detection from any screen, in google settings.

  • DieMusik

    How about camera2 API?

  • I started having long and meaningless lags with this update on my Z3 Compact 5803. Google Chrome has the most obvious problems. Touch sensitivity is not as it was before, it has got worse.

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    I’ve never seen it since 5.1 update.

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    This OK Google thing is surely problematic at the moment. It also interferes with the FM radio app. Another annoying issue about it : I turn off “from any screen” feature but it keeps turning itself on.

  • 5u5m1t

    Nice and fast by Sony. Well done!

  • PoweredBySony

    Found this temp fix for stagefright so if you have root you can use it untill sony releases an official fix for other devices ( z3 and z2 got the fix)

  • Sweggity

    could be some water or dust stuck in the microphone, try blowing it and cleaning it with a toothpick(be careful though) if it still fails take to ur nearest sony centre if ur device is in warranty

  • Dilesh Perera

    StageFright was patched with .580 ROM until yesterday . but now with CVE-2015-3864 Stock .580 rom vulnerable again :(

  • MoYeung

    xLOUD support?

    Still nothing in the UK. Slow to roll out a security patch….

  • Martin Ambre

    still no update

    even after factory reset and repair from Sony Companion software
    my phone restarts
    black color transitions from grey to dark grey and eventually to black

    a lot of bugs in UI

    Apps screen search menu disappears

    i had reported to SONY India Support & Service Center Mumbai but they are uneducated/untrained

  • allan

    Finally got 5.1.1 to Z2 in Sweden

  • Alex Bretana

    Jeez, it’s been more than a month and I’m still not seeing this update for my D5803 (US). The .546 update totally messed up my 4G data, 3G still cuts out every once in a while, my phone has been less snappy, and my max speaker volume is TERRIBLE. Come on Sony….

  • Benjamin Levy

    I was just wondering the same thing. I have the same phone (Z3C) and update (546) in the US.

  • Benjamin Levy

    I just got the notification it was available via PCC
