Xperia Z2 firmware update (23.4.A.1.200) rolling

by XB on 19th September 2015

in Firmware, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z2

Xperia Z2_23.4.A.1.200_1Sony Xperia Z2 users are reporting that they are receiving a firmware update to build number 23.4.A.1.200. The update appears to only be live for those with the D6503 variant with a Nordic NCB handset (CDA: 1282-0508). This is the same build number that was certified for all of the Xperia Z2 and Z3 series recently.

Strangely, despite this being a newer build, it is fully exposed to the Stagefright exploit. The update doesn’t appear to be widely distributed, so you should wait until it hits PC Companion (although you may want to wait if the Stagefright exploit hasn’t been fixed).

    Xperia M2 when?

  • MixoMaxoViper

    Firmware is also rolling to Xperia Z3 Compact!
    Only NFC fix and lockscreen Sony Clock fix.

  • Lokinhu Kun


  • Sweggity

    can anyone confirm if it fixes the mobile data bug?

  • Bennder

    I don’t have that type of problem, that’s probably problem caused by your carrier.

  • Matt

    do the sony lockscreen clock is fixed? (not on bold)

    screen shot please

  • mukul verma

    yes it is your carrier problem, not software. u should change the sim to other co , see if this prevails.

  • Damien

    That might not be a bug… It happened to me and I fixed it by doing the following: disable mobile data and connect to a wifi network, after being connected, go to Settings > … More > Internet Settings. It will then download the settings for data and MMS and you will be able to connect to your data. (It worked for me, and be sure that you’re using LTE as preferred network type)

  • Good News ^_^

  • Damien

    Sergio said it could take 5 days like it did with other Xperias after being certified, so yeah… Probably monday.

  • Damien

    Anyone knows anything about Z3+?

  • Vuyo Ncube

    How is 5.1.1 on the Z1, everyone? Hasn’t arrived in my country yet:(

  • Sergio

    Exactly. Probably monday afternoon or tuesday. :)

  • Sweggity

    Nope not carrier, worked fine on 5.0.2. i reflashed 5.0.2 tested it, no issues. after 5.1.1 update this problem arises.

  • Sweggity

    nope not carrier. tested it out with other carrier and the problem only happens with 5.1.1 and i am not the only one facing this, whoever uploaded the video got the same issue and lot of people in xperia forums got the same issues

  • Sweggity

    okay, will try it and let u know.

  • Andrej Petrevski

    cant wait…. XD

  • RohitBopnna

    Android 6 for all the Z series, even the First Z, are you Zerious, do you have dates of release. Cool file if this for real.

  • Tsakane

    Flash it manually or you’ll be waiting forever. I got 5.0.1 (Z2) in March and it only arrived here last month, it’ll probably be a similar wait for 5.1.1.

  • Alvin

    Also on z3.. Some of z3 users get it.. But now i don’t think I’ll do the first impressions since i want to know bugs and everything new there… But a z3 user in xda told that he got the update already.

  • Alvin

    I’ll hold my judgements and excitements until the official statement come. Because I don’t want myself to be overexcited now and then if some day they disappoint me, and I’ll ended up mocking sony again lol

  • Alvin

    I don’t think the bold lockscreen lock thing is a bug… Because that clock is present in z5 series and m5… Maybe they give the update to us on those clock earlier…? Lol

    And the 5.0 lockscreen clock is the best among other clocks I’ve ever seen on an android phone… And the old motorola clock and weather widget comes next

  • batuhan

    Nothing New :( no camera2 api
    (1 New small app icon is Updated)

  • Salman Irshad
  • Andrea Galasso

    from august with love.
    is only an excel table with green cells.

  • MixoMaxoViper

    Sorry, my mistake! Clock isn’t fixed…
    But NFC has updated and the apps were restarting- update at ART or something.

  • Andrea Galasso

    i too :D

  • Salman Irshad
  • mike

    may I know the name of time/weather widget? also, how you get all icons same size and all round? thx

  • John Mcbride

    have you tried to manually set your carrier APN ?

  • I’ve got an email from sony about this update for my z3 dual

  • David Hvatov

    Why it doesn’t show up in xperiafirm?

  • PoweredBySony

    Xperia Z5 Look and Feel for other xperia devices

  • Sweggity


  • Antonis Kalaitzakis

    it’s not your carrier. you are not alone! :P
    Same problem here..

  • Tochi Nwodu

    What is the email about?

  • Damien

    The update hasn’t bringed any good qualities in manual camera… Not even one device as far as I know) but I think Sony is thinking about it, I mean, a lot of people asked for camera2 api support on Lollipop, so who knows, on a future update maybe?

  • Damien

    That roadmap is from an unofficial facebook page in Brazil, called “Ajuda Xperia”, which means it might not be true…

  • Damien

    Have you checked if you’re in the variant D6503 tab? Since the update’s only for that variant.

  • Damien

    Do you happen to have a brief changelog? It’s a bit odd, this “new” update.
    It doesn’t even fixes the stagefright vulnerability(?)

  • Damien

    Have you checked on Xperifirm?

  • Harrold Pok

    try settings>more>Internet Settings

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Thank you for the quick response
    Lets hope they fix the USSD bug n ringtone bug

  • I updated already, can’t see anything new and I haven’t noticed any bug before, so can’t say what is fixed

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Wow…you are lucky…I updated to 5.1.1 ussd dont work
    And then I cant hear my ringtone…
    Pretty low
    What region is your z3 dual from?

  • Abhi

    It’s not a carrier issue, it’s even on Android M, Google is looking into it. It affects almost all Android 5.0+ devices, Google only recently assigned a Dev to the “Mobile Radio Active” battery drain bug, it’s the number 2 voted issue on the Google Android issue tracker. It occurs only when you have data enabled and you are not in WiFi coverage, some apps may trigger it more than others this includes Google’s own apps.

  • Abhi

    Google assigned a Dev to the bug 2 days back, they are looking into it. Fix has to come from Google most likely first. Its in Android M as well which they are fixing.

  • Abhi

    It’s a pretty well known issue. It’s not a carrier issue it’s on Android M as well, it affects devices 5.0+ including those on Android M. Google is working on a fix. It’s on the Android issue tracker if you want to follow what’s going on.

    It has to do with keeping the cellular radio active even after apps have finished data transactions. Only occurs when you are out of WiFi coverage with data enabled.

  • Should be EMEA.
    Model D6633

  • KMNH

    It’s pathetic, really. The Z2 is my first and last Sony phone.

  • Abhi

    I thought you had the Mobile Radio Active battery drain bug, I was not able to see the video earlier. Looks like you have a different issue altogether :).

  • azzido

    T-Mobile Poland claims this Monday Z5 will be available in pre order.
    Nothing special except: it is coming with 2K screen and 4GB of RAM:

    Is this a bug or…

    :) :) :)

    please up this comment to be seen by others.

  • Damien

    2K screen?

  • Alvin

    I don’t know since i haven’t even get it yet

  • Damien

    Well, thank you anyway, I just find this update a little bit weird

  • KzX

    It always happen after the update.

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Yeah not on my carrier in South Africa yet.

  • Mohammad Mohammadi

    this build not work ussd code

  • Killian Khoo

    If this is true, Z series gonna to be same class as Nexus software update standard except for Nexus monthly security update ~

  • Eduardo Otero

  • raju

  • Nawi

    Nexus 4 is not going to receive Android M i think

    So.. Is impossible 6.0 for Xperia Z :/

  • Ah wat, now I see what you meant by USSD bug. It is still there, not fixed

  • David Hvatov

    Yes. Still nothing. 580 shows latest there.

  • Updated my Z3 dual. USSD bug is there. Stagefright not fixed

  • Tochi Nwodu

    Sony isnt doing a good job with dual series….i was able to fix the ringer last night with a mod on xda

  • basheer

    same mine also D6503 BUT IT SHOWS .580

  • azzido

    Yes this is what they claim: 2560 x 1440 and 4GB RAM

  • Nikola Maruni?

    I can. I have the same problem on my 5.1 Z3. I usually just restart the phone or chose the network again from the mobile network settings. I also noticed a scrolling bug. If I have the always listen Google now on, then my microphone doesn’t work during calls. All in all there are more bugs than on the 5.0 update, but I’m just too lazy to report them.

  • sl1p

    lol, this is a logical fallacy, not a leak

  • masi0

    same build rolling out to Z3 Compact (CE region) via PCC

  • Novan Wijaya ?

    i got email like that, but still don’t have notification update from Sony PC Companion. Are you update directly from your phone ?

  • Nope, through computer. Still, nothing new in this update

  • For User Indonesia

  • Hammad Bukhari

  • prof

  • FedeC6603Z

    my KK Z2 is laughting

  • Paul L

    Same here. Lollipop ruined my battery life and Sony remains silent on the subject. It’s been the worst experience I’ve had with a phone so far.

  • TimTaylor
  • Eduardo Otero

    The preview is not sign that phones will get an update, it’s just for apps development
    Now tell me how many Xperias got previews of Lollipop and how many Xperias got it?

  • Matilde Mar

    How come they removed the sony clock dark widget??

  • sam

  • Sweggity

    Well it got fixed in the new .200 update.

  • Aby

    I updated my Z2 with this new update 23.4.A.1.200 over OTA. Battery life significantly Improved and much better than last lollipop update 23.4.A.0.580. Felt disappointed earlier when i switched from Kitkat to Lollipop but now its good .

  • Aby

    Battery life is much improved with this new update on my Z2.

  • Aby

    With Better Battery Life than last update 23.4.A.580 which sucks. Now I can easily get around 2 and more days battery life.

  • prof
