in Android, Firmware, Xperia M2


Xperia M2 Android 5.1_18.6.A.0.175Looks like Sony Xperia M2 series owners will finally be getting a taste of Lollipop shortly as Android 5.1.1 firmware has just been certified in the form of build number 18.6.A.0.175. The same update has been certified for all variants of the Xperia M2, Xperia M2 Dual as well as the Xperia M2 Aqua. The Xperia M2 series has been languishing on Android 4.4.4 KitKat and will now move straight to Android 5.1.1. We’ll keep you posted once the update lands.

Android 5.1.1 build number 18.6.A.0.175 certified for Xperia M2 (D2303, D2305, D2306), M2 Dual (D2302) and M2 Aqua (D2403, D2406)

Thanks Bartek, Gaurav and Sergio!

  • Mustafizur Rahman

    what about xperia E3??

  • Sergio

    E3 won’t receive any big updates unless sony decides to upgrade you to Marshmallow, which is very improbable.

  • Sergio

    It’s finally arriving! :D
    Well, I’ve check the amount of time between PTCRB Certification dates & Release dates, and there’s always a 5 days range… So, we can expect it’ll arrive on next week, maybe Monday.

  • Abdul Ghani

    Nice job sony updated so many phones with latest software just before marshmallow kudos

  • Vincent

    Just want to know when will z3+ get 5.1.1,….

  • Samantha Alexandra Vélez Salin

    Sergio im here again. This time we are going to talk about dev platforms for some 2014 Xperia models:

    Xperia T2 Ultra
    Xperia T3
    Xperia M2 / M2 Aqua
    Xperia E3

    All they share in common one thing: yukon architecture and bird names too ;)

    So, lets make a filter, thinking in techical specs comparing E3 and M2 only (specs related barely to raw hardware)

    Xperia M2: February 2014

    CPU: Qualcomm MSM8926 Snapdragon 400 with Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 and GPU Adreno 305. 1 Gb RAM, Internal Storage 8 Gb.

    Lollipop certified today by PTCRB

    ———————————————————————————-

    Xperia E3: September 2014

    CPU: Qualcomm MSM8926 Snapdragon 400 with Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 and GPU Adreno 305. 1 Gb RAM, Internal Storage 4 Gb.

    Theres not certainity about lollipop or marshmallow

    Are you, or sony eliminating or dropping out the posibility of Lollipop or marshmallow in E3 just by 4 Gb in internal space?

  • Zeljko Kovacevic

    I’m so happy o/

    Theres not certainity about lollipop or marshmallow

    Are sony eliminating or dropping out the posibility of Lollipop or marshmallow in E3 just by 4 Gb in internal space?

  • Andrej Petrevski

    Are u jealous?

  • Samantha Alexandra Vélez Salin

    Why are you so sure of no further updates for E3? May be E1 is dropped out but E3 have a chance. Look i dont had enough money for buy something bigger and better in jan 2015, so i chose Xperia E3 instead Xperia M. May be in a couple of years my choice is going to be something higher like Xperia Z3 compact (if prices drop down, or in some black friday season)

  • Samantha Alexandra Vélez Salin

    No, im not. Im thinking with logic. The same hardware is not a reason to delay E3 and promote M2.

  • Samantha Alexandra Vélez Salin

    Flashtool, dont Wait to the OTA. Theres some flashtool tutorials here in xperia blog and in youtube. Xda developers are enthusiast guys able to help if something goes wrong. Take the risk and enjoy

  • Jecht_Sin

    Yeeeeh! Finally! Last but not least. lol

  • Samantha Alexandra Vélez Salin

    We are in same conditions. E series is abbandoned at the moment. Also T3 is the “chicken pops guy” of the 2014 family

  • Jecht_Sin

    Tomorrow! I’m sick of waiting. :D

  • Sergio

    LOL
    “Are you, or sony eliminating or dropping out the posibility of Lollipop or marshmallow in E3 just by 4 Gb in internal space?”
    I’ve absolutely nothing to do with Sony, I’m just a dev. A very small one, in fact, compared to others.
    I don’t say our phones so different, in fact you know M2 is D2303 and E3 is D2203. E3 is like a cheap M2. Poor camera, less screen, [strong]less internal storage[/strong], etc.
    The problem is that, without swapping the internal memory by the external SD card, it’s almost impossible to install a SINGLE APP. Apps, due to Android RunTime, increased the size (Dalvik+ART compatibility), that’s why having lollipop inside a 4GB phone is just a crazy idea.

    Can you compile it?: Yes!
    Is it a good rom for an average user?: No.

    Imagine you work at Sony. Think about Lollipop as an end-user rom… Wouldn’t they prefer being hold back in 4.4 but at least have some more space to install apps, or, would you roll out an ota that only let’s you install 1 single app in your phone?

    But, now the key. Marshmallow let’s you use your SD as an ampliation of your internal memory. That’s why there’s still a possibility that Sony updates it. [strong]The only one.[/strong]

    If I were you I’d wait until Sony decides what devices to update. And please, don’t believe in rumors or filtrations, that only creates false hopes.

  • Sergio

    I just replied you below.

  • Jecht_Sin

    4GB? Total? The dalvik cache with ART take an awful lot of space.

  • Sergio
  • Andrej Petrevski

    Cuz M2 is beast :) just instal cm 12.1 :D

  • Jecht_Sin

    Oh well. At least it’s fully official now.

  • Samantha Alexandra Vélez Salin

    CM 12.1 and AOSP for E3 and T3 doesnt allow you video playback and use the camera or the 2G 3G services

  • Samantha Alexandra Vélez Salin

    What are the technical requirements of Android Lollipop? Please dont think in devices or brands. Just tech specs.

    An example: Windows specifies the amount of RAM, processor and space in disk needed for installation. Also linux and mac too.

    I mean how many RAM, space in disk and peripherials requires?

    Is there some technical note of that??

  • Sergio

    There are.

    En castellano: “Para esta versión (5.0) se esta recomendando mínimamente un procesador Quad Core, al menos 1 Gb de memoria para la ejecución de aplicaciones y un espacio de almacenamiento igual o superior a los 8 Gb de memoria para un rendimiento aceptable.”

    Lo del quad core y la Ram lo cumple de sobra, pero, los 8GB de almacenamiento interno…

    E ahí la razón por la que el M2 tiene Lollipop ya. Lo que sí es cuestionable es si el T3 no tiene Lollipop injustamente. Eso es otra historia.

    Y sí, lo siento pero es la verdad. Yo no soy el que toma las decisiones, es Sony, y me duele que lo hagan, pero si un terminal no cumple los requisitos mínimos, para de contar.

  • Tommy Hamill

    omg im so happy finally go sony mid range yay im hated being on kiktat for long

  • Andrej Petrevski

    same i cant sleep :D

  • Thomas Escalona Correa

    Yeah, siii, saldrá lo que tanto he estado esperando, thanks Sony

  • AGUER ZERHIOOO OMAIJOT AGUER ZERHIO

  • Before the all-new M4 Aqua? I wasted my money once again. It’s got a quite good camera, though.

  • Azar

    Bro, Z4 family didn’t get the 5.1 update at all, as far as I know. How would u even find the ftf? Not even Xperia firm has it since last time I checked. I’ll check again in the morning though.

  • Devastates BG

    Did that mean Xperia M2 Aqua D2403 Will get it ?

  • Alvin

    Update glory on xperia devices, never gets old

  • Lokinhu Kun

    FINALLY!!!

    I HOPE THAT THE UPDATE COMES UNTIL FRIDAY :3

  • Casey Sturgeon

    Thats what I’m waiting for too. With the M2 Aqua and many other phones with very similar specs to the E4G getting lollipop, our update can’t be that far away

  • Takuya Kousaka

    Too bad E4g is a mediatek device, ever seen a mediatek powered device from sony get updated beyond their factory version?

  • Ayad Fahos

    Need

    Chill down a lil bit, just because you want a new Android OS (Lollipop or Marshmallow) to your E3 or T3, doesn’t means it will happen, there’s no pointing about showing up the specs of the smartphone, it isn’t always about the hardware of your phone that it would give you the recent OS released to date, if that was the case, many smartphones would hit to Android 10 (as an example), it’s also about the number of sales, and the active devices, Xperia M2 has a lot of users, which complained to SONY, and not to random people on unofficial websites that are not related to Sony (just like you’re doing, complaining to us), so yeah, it’s a matter of time, either you wait for an official Sony press release about your phone or you buy a new one, but I recommend installing a custom ROM, and don’t give me the bullsh*t “my camera doesn’t works on AOSP”, instead of going online to complain, why don’t you learn how to build a ROM for your smartphone? There’s plenty of tutorials on XDA and Youtube. I’ve waited for my lollipop update for almost ONE YEAR, and I didn’t complained, instead of it, I tried to install others ROMs, do yourself a favour and stop with this non-sense.

    Fuck u SONY

  • GO FUCK YOURSELF

  • Marco Antonio

    probably straight to 6.0, there’s no need to update a phone that shouldn’t have been released and almost no one has it

  • Marco Antonio

    e3 and t3 are going straight to 6.0, even moto E 2014 can run crappy lollipop, but very slow.

  • Marco Antonio

    e3 is a cheap phone, better than an e1 of course, e1 is abandoned at kitkat, maybe sony doesn’t want it to be as slow as the moto e running 5.1. There are leaks that shows in the roadmap that e3 and t3 will go straight to 6.0

  • Marco Antonio

    yes the moto E 5.1.1 is very slow and the storage size is at its limit, I’m having some trouble with that terminal after making the mistake of flashing brazilian rom

  • Marco Antonio

    son demasiados terminales que actualizar y no se molesta por ahora en equipos que no han vendido bien. También esta el caso del Z1s que nunca le llegó la OTA de 5.0.2, solo le llegó a la versión de T-mobile y esa malogra el equipo por alguna extraña razón. Estoy a la expectativa de que le llegue 5.1.1 al menos, pero parece que este también va a saltar directo a 6.0

  • Damien

    Nope, try again.

  • Damien

    Try again, it should be available for you now.

  • Damien

    Probably Monday, 21/09.

    Yeah.

    Mate, M4 will go straight to Android Marshmallow 6.0

  • I wanted 5.1, couldn’t care less about M

  • Damien

    Unless they need to update it to 5.1.1 your only shot at getting 5.1 is through AOSP..

  • Damien

    I believe E4g might get Marshmallow 6.0 (but I guess you’ll have to wait on a Sony press release about it)

  • Damien

    That leaked roadmap was posted on an unofficial facebook page of Xperia, which means it might have been faked.. We should probably wait for a Sony announcement on the Marshmallow update.

  • Damien

    Ya ha llegado la OTA 5.1.1 para el Z1s

  • Prasad Daki

    Are you sure about it? T3 and E3 will get Marshmallow directly?

  • Prasad Daki

    Even Moto E runs lolliopo with 4GB internal space…so you can’t say that

    Then you should downgrade your os to 4.3 stock dont you messed up with kitkat

    Update for Xperia M4 & M4 Aqua is rolling out, even if it was certified after Xperia M2 devices…What the Hell? ….Is this make sence?????

  • wh23ng

    Just hoping they don’t mess up the 5.1 update, 5.0 is a bad experience on my friend’s M4, it makes me a little worry about Lollipop update on M2.

  • Maddy Rockhard

    Then i hope it
    Will make our device lighter to operate.
    Fingers crossed

  • wh23ng

    M2 has the potential to go Marshmellow and beyond, only if Sony would make the right decision and update it faster.

  • Saawal Khan

    i know! fuking sony makign us wait nearly a year

  • Biowizards

    between oktober 2-4 rolling out (Sorry for my bad english)

  • Karim

    Source

  • Damien

    I also think that between September 30 and October 5 they might release it, source: i’ve contacted my Phone carrier and Sony just gave to all carriers the M2 lollipop update for testing and approval, the testing always takes weeks or months, so who knows.

  • Pingback: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update for Sony Xperia M2, M2 Aqua, and M2 Dual - Yibada (English Edition) | Android & iPhones Information()

    but why the m4 has get the update

  • Damien

    M4 is still on Android 5.0.2. This update is not for 5.1.1

  • Damien

    Maybe next week, around September 30 – October 5. (it’s just a guess tho)

  • Damien

    The M4 update isn’t for Android 5.1.1, which is why it is already rolling out..

    not yet released the 5.1 update for xperia m2?? when it will be releasing ?? whether can we expect next week??.. too annoyed of waiting for update….all the device expect m2 is releasing their lollipop update.. almost there are only 11 days of time delay between the certification time and releasing time..on seeing that m2 is certified for 5.1 update in 16th sep. so it should be releasing the update by tomorrow. but no sort of receiving the update. Anybody received the update?…pls say frnds..when can we expect the update for 5.1 for xperia m2?

    Might be a bug fix cuz i did’nt found anything changed

  • unziiip

    T2 Ultra, C3 similar priced, 5.0 since April, and their 2nd 5.x on Sept 7

    No date or never for M2 series. F words are meaningless and not enough for an insult like such

    Just spreads this news onto the web, and warns your friends about this company is more productive

    If you decide to purchase from them again, that’s your problem

  • Maddy Rockhard

    totally Agree

  • Darshan Naik

    Exactly…Just certifying what’s the use…If they are not going to roll out….Sony Sucks.

  • G-UNIT_(Z)

    where is your lolipop? I’m sorry if you got it as an insult, but, m2 is the worst SONY product, I am disappointed that the SP did not get KitKat, a hundred times better to me, and more capable than m2, and m2 goes to 5.1.1, the customer SONY but when I saw that they did this I’ll probably move on LG.

  • Karim

    Its out guys anyone get it ?
