in Firmware, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 series


Xperia Z3_23.4.A.1.232 firmwareSony Mobile has new firmware on the horizon for the Xperia Z2 and Z3 series, as build number 23.4.A.1.232 has just been certified by the PTCRB. This update compares to the latest release for these handsets with build number 23.4.A.1.200, which if you remember, left the handset fully exposed to the Stagefright exploit. Hopefully, this new upcoming firmware release will fully patch the phone.

Firmware build number 23.4.A.1.232 is certified for the Xperia Z2 (D6502, D6503), Xperia Z2 Tablet (SGP521), Xperia Z3 (D6603, D6653), Xperia Z3 Dual (D6633), Xperia Z3 Compact (D5803, D5833) and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (SGP621, SGP641). We’ll let you know as soon as it starts to roll.

Xperia Z3_23.4.A.1.232 firmware

Thanks Gaurav, najodleglejszy and Pavan!

  • Saad Khan

  • nizd

  • Zhan

    I’m with my Z3 (D6603) still stuck with 23.4.A.0.546 in Poland!
    Already have missed at least 3 updates! (((
    Thanks in advance!

  • Sachin Gautam

    pls update through flashtool

  • Andrej Petrevski

    XPERIA M2 COME ONN.

  • Ayad Fahos

    Ussd code dual z3 plz fix sony

  • Ensferi CZ (EnsferiCZE)

    Rly ? And Z3+/Z4 still 5.02 -.-

  • FerN

    Sony has forgotten that users m2 wait :(

  • Zeljko Kovacevic

    m2 bitches

  • Bennder

    It’s better to wait a little longer for good bug free update, after all lollipop is not that great compare to kit-kat and it is pointless to update if you don’t get android marshmallow later.

  • Zeljko Kovacevic

    It’s certified so it’s done and ready to rollout no reason for delay.

  • Damien

    Oh Sony

  • Zeljko Kovacevic

    Sad but truth :(

  • Stefan

    How?…. Same in germany…

  • Samuel

    XperiFirm is dead…need to be updated or something. I had to use the PCC method to create my own FTF.

  • Alvin

    I don’t even get that .200 update yet

  • bilomar

    Also in Germany. Got every update so far. I used pc companion for the last one a few days ago.

  • Ahmed Waheed

    too many updates released. too many

  • Igor Eisberg

    Well that’s a useless comment. Anyway, I’m writing the update as we speak…

  • Brayan Ramírez

    To hell with that argument of the “bug less=delay of more than 10 days since all of the z lineup is updated and the update is already certified “, Sony job is to make nice and stable firmware in a fairly ok time, and for an example the M4 aqua got an update certified the day 20 of September and by the day 23 the update started rolling out.

  • MyLive

    I’m running on. 200, and download Xperia clock apk so I can still enjoying black clock on bright wallpaper.. :(

  • Utsav Shah

    They better start rolling out.

  • DIsChaos

    Who care about M2 , this post is about z2/3 , upgrade to Z series if you want faster upgrade

  • DIsChaos

    Well is’nt the M2 Old phone now? nothing force them to make an update for there phone look HTC how slow it is to get a lollipop update even in there hight end phone, easy solution would be upgrade to Xperia Z series when the phone get cheaper

  • DIsChaos

    Better than none , also just two currently ,if you don’t like updates switch to Htc you will enjoy not getting any update :D

  • Brayan Ramírez

    The original Z lineup is older than the M2, and look they got a nice update before Z1, and sorry but not all people is able to spend 700$ on a smart phone or even 350-400 when they get a little old, some people have to live with a mid ranger, just like the M2, and plus the estupid policy of Sony about releasing a phone with an older firmware(M2 came with 4.3 when 4.4 was already out) its their strategy for letting the phones die early

  • Damien

    It might be old but it’s hardware is a beast in ways that handle lollipop. HTC hardware not.

  • Abhi

    We have an HTC M8 at home, it gets updates pretty quickly in terms of being a non Nexus device……

  • Mohammad Mohammadi

    please fix ussd cod for d6633

  • nick

    nothing imp in this .200 better wait for next one

  • Already? I only got .1.200 yesterday!

  • Mohammad Mohammadi

    ussd cod???

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I think they’re gonna give the taste of Z5 series to Z3+

  • Aiden Pearce

    share apk

  • Sadman Khan

    No please. This update is very important. Especially the improvement in battery life. And also, the mic issues are fixed. The auto brightness bug is still there though but other than that .200 is a fantastic update.

  • theskig

    OMG why you need to wake up so early on sunday?

  • theskig

    Lollipop update was so useful that I’m still with KitKat.
    Sometimes is better none than update.

  • Vlado
  • Zeljko Kovacevic

    m2 aqua Released 2014, September
    Z Released 2013, February
    Z1 Released 2013, September
    Z2 Released 2014, April
    What are you talking about????

  • Z3 COMPACT

    battery life improved ? i didnt seen any difference!!

  • Zeljko Kovacevic

    No i don’t want to throw hundreds of euros for phone it’s stupid.

  • Sadman Khan

    I get 7 hours of screen time on average like on kitkat with normal usage (browsing,facebook,whatsapp,messenger,viber,checking emails, and listening to music etc)

  • Z3 COMPACT

    cool

  • Sadman Khan

    I always forget to take screenshots. But this should give you an idea https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dcd5ee4b9670b8e3785204708cef29714fa13bc5d4f7bc7fa90513b8f5938876.png

  • DIsChaos

    Actually I do own an Htc desire 820 but you can guess still no lollipop

  • Agus Widhiyasa

    Xperia T3?!

  • Snidhin Ninu

    this one may be a carrier based update like 23.4.A.0.580

  • Snidhin Ninu

    I hoped all the bugs in 23.4.A.0.546 will be fixed in 23.4.A.1.200, but there is nothing noticeable changes, all bugs are still there, USSD is nt working on Xperia Z3 Dual

  • Snidhin Ninu

    I will not update my next mobile, as this updates are bringing bugs to mobile… all functions will perform great with the release version only

  • Dimitrije Dk

    Im thinking about downgrading to 4.4.2 on my z2, what do you guys think? The phone felt the fastest back then…

  • Kiran Pasupuleti

    I went back to Kitkat for a few days, but the Kitkat interface and the rest of the apps didn’t go well together. So I returned to Lollipop as the performance deterioration for my needs is minimal. Yeah, but you can try downgrading, less than a day’s effort, and then you can always upgrade if at all you are underwhelmed by Kitkat’s more sober look.

  • Chitti- The Robot

    I hate it when they release an update and doesn’t provide changelog.
    23.4.A.1.200 was huge 1.5GB update and no one knows what changed. It is really annoying to be like a ignored and download what ever they release.

  • Chitti- The Robot

    Wow that looks promising. 52mins of SOT with 10% of usage? Thats great, I get around 35mins.

  • Invar

    I paid for my brand new Z3 189.70 euros so please stop crying and flaming that spending hundreds for phone from Z series is stupid. It’s not if you are using your brain and you know where and when you should buy your phone.

  • Abhi

    That is certainly interesting, I owned an HTC One X, Butterfly earlier and they were flagships probably that’s why they were better with updates I guess.

  • Frank203

    Can you please say where you bought a Z3 for that money? :)

  • Sadman Khan

    Reminds me of Kitkat :’)

  • Luigi De Francesco

    only think it is better in 4.4.2 is battery life.Performance,camera quality,UI smoothness, is worst than other updates. This new update is great…

  • Jonathan Bratanata

    use PCC, i got the notification to update immediately after i connected my phone to my pc

  • Exactly, i was thinking of 4.4.4, it was really the best

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Same with z4 tablet :p

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Just keep calm, it will get android 5.1.1 AND 6.0 AND maybe even more updates. Who knows Sony havent killed the support for the original Xperia Z series either so thoose devices might even get a taste of marshmallow (i dont think so but i wouldnt be surprised if Sony decided to update them)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    The lollipop update for my Xperia Z was waaaay better then jelly bean 4.3 which was the best update for the xperia z since launch (depsite that i used kitkat since it was released).

  • Emil Oskarsson

    And im proud that i can squeeze out roughly 4 hours of on screen time on my Xperia Z xD

  • raju

    Z1 compact released January 2014

  • xLobito

    Well… Buy me a Z3 phone instead. I don’t have enough money to buy one. Be respectful for the ones who can’t get Xperia Z2/3 as you. Also, if I had the money, I wouldn’t go for any Xperia Z2/3. I’d go for anything better in terms of Camera and Performance. Z3 camera sucks if you ask me.

  • Sadman Khan

    Not sure if i should laugh or feel bad XD

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Even the Z, Z1, and Z1 Compact got the 5.1.1 update, but nothing for Xperia Z2 in Croatia…hope this rolls very soon

  • Monty

    I downloaded this unto my xperia Z2 and now it no longer auto roates.. Sony please fix this problem

  • TharakaKS

    And there are some differences in settings menu.. and battery life is improved slightly

  • cicababa

    look for it at xda

  • Antonis Kalaitzakis

    did you download .232? Or .200?

  • Sachin Gautam
  • Anjar Permana

    Am still didn’t get any update since 23.4.A.0.546 untill now region indonesia for xperia z2 d6503.

  • Matt

    That is the difference between low and high end. And that is what you get for paying more. It’s already lucky m2 got lollipop at all.

    I wonder why my user are being so aggressive lately.

    I know it’s a bit mean to say. I wonder how they will react if Sony drop 5.1.1 for m2, by drop I mean cancel

  • Anjar Permana

    Am still didn’t get that update since 23.4.A.0.546 till now region indonesia for xperia z2 d6503

  • Brayan Ramírez

    And what if hypothetically i don’t want/need a super beefy hardware?, still i am forced to pay a lot for having recent software?, oh boy i would not want to be the PR team of sony if they cancel 5.1.
    Oh and btw the m2 still is a mid range ;)

  • Brayan Ramírez

    Haha, go ahead and try to buy an unlocked sealed box Z3 in places like Latin America with 189 euros

  • MyLive

    It’s my exercise time mate ;)

  • MyLive

    Off topic, but I really hope there’s option to change text color and notification on the new update like Z5, looks cool imo.. And I was just realize that name tag below icons are back, like xperias 2012 UI

  • Jonathan Bratanata

    update using PC Companion. I live in indonesia too, and when I connected my phone to my pc, PCC instantly told me there was a new update (the .200 update)

  • Matt

    easy buy Nexus 5. beefey hardware with cut price.

    besides with android wear class snapdragon 400 and 229 PPi it is rather lucky to get 5.1.1 after all (even before m4 aqua). and yes im aware that i sounded like a douchebag.

    so what do you say? just sit there and wait the M2 lollipop patiently like a normal person.

  • Aiden Pearce

    Yeah ugliest clock ever on Xperia.

  • valentino

    but the real z5 UI doesn’t show in black font like that. try to see the z5 review. even the white one at the IFA still looks the same like the old Z3.
    hmmm im going back to Sony. I’m going to trade my S6 for Z3+ is it worthed? need opinions here. because you see sony seems to ditch the Z3+ even the ads for z3+ aren’t many and not focused..LoL.

  • Anjar Permana

    Still didn’t get jonathan,i just check in PCC but still no have update :(

  • Stanley Lu

    What theme are you using?~

  • Aiden Pearce

    The clock widget changes color according to the applied theme.

    if you have white theme the clock turns black and vice versa

  • valentino

    so you not change the clock widget manually like old version? i thought sony has 2 clock widget one black and the other one white.

  • Z3 COMPACT

    if possible avoid Z3+ it has many issues, and if you can wait then wait for Z6 or then go for Z5

  • Z3 COMPACT

    well today on sunday i found difference morning 100% then 4 hrs continues clash of clan display on sound full wifi on then normal whatsapp fb insta some clicks and video recording then watching videos lasted 12 hrs morning 9 to night 10.20 still 1% remaining

  • Sadman Khan

    I love this firmware. I just hope they fix the auto brightness bug fast.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    What can i say, im just glad that the battery is as good today as it was when i bought the phone for 2 years ago xD

  • bubimir13

    Dude, if you’re on T-Mo youre doomed. Vip already got even latest .200 update. Ditch those thiefs…

  • MyLive

    ‘Black M concept’, it’s on the playstore, but I change the wallpaper

  • MyLive

    Really?? What theme? the clock Still white on me

  • MyLive

    Well I hope UI isn’t final at that time..

  • Stanley Lu

    sweet, thanks !

  • valentino

    yeah me too.. that z5 white UI.. really has timeless design..

  • valentino

    so stay with galaxy s6? for now? kay then.. well i miss the xperia z3 NC.. missing how the music beats in my ear with that.. hehehe.. XD

  • valentino

    i think they will soon kill 32bit android phones.. soon maybe 4-5 years ahead..

  • Aiden Pearce

    nope they change color automatically now

  • Aiden Pearce

    mine changes the color itself..here is screenshot.
    when i apply white theme it changes to black and upon black theme it changes to white.

  • z3user

    It is fixed with this update.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    I agree…

  • MyLive

    Is the phone root? With pre-installed themes from Z5? Or is it just wallpaper? Mind share apk pls :)

  • valentino

    Okay z5 then. Im afraid the 2nd hand s6 price will drop soon. And z5 have great features. But i realize it’s thicker than s6. Maybe i will wait z6.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Maybe but how many will still use their 32 bits phones then?

  • Z3 COMPACT

    how much thicker must be in mm actually i prefer thicker phone it gives you more macro range for camera my old SE vivaz does better focus on close object compared to z3 compact

  • MyLive

    Cool.. Thanks!

  • valentino

    s6 has 6.8mm thick. z5 has 7.3mm. well because its larger and thicker it won’t feel really compact in my hand. unlike the s6. that’s why i consider the xperia z3+ with almost same specs inside. only fingerprint and hybrid af that make it different.

  • valentino

    many people. well 4-5 years ahead. people will change their z3 to new one. even some will change the z5 to new one.the 32 bit consumer will soon be forced to buy 64 bit. my opinion only.

  • Zoran

    Crap..I’m on the wrong network again

  • Aby

    Over OTA update , it is only 240 MB . :) Battery Life very much improved even WIFI is active all time .

  • Zoran

    I just noticed that complete Z line on t-mobile got this .200 update expect z2..I mean WTF?!?

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    Istina, ali ni ne bih updateao na .200 jer onaj stagefright nije sre?en….nadam se da je .232 taj koji ?e do?i i za T-Mobile

  • Shahed Hossain

    Updated my xperia z3 (d6653) through ota update yesterday. Update size was approximately 226 mb. No extraordinary changes found. Previous bugs yet exists.

  • Kristijan Kaši?

    It’s not showing on XperiFirm.

  • Shahed Hossain

    Yes, but u can update through PCC or OTA. In xperiafirmware its available only for 6603 & 6633.

  • MichaelGopan Jackson

    Fix USSD In D6633 :O

  • grzeg8102

    This update finally fixed Stagefright vulnerability!! Yeeeeehaw! Checked with Stagefright detector app

  • Antonio
