Minor update (23.4.A.1.236) certified for Xperia Z3 series, hopefully fully patches Stagefright [Update]

by XB on 23rd October 2015

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

Xperia Z3_23.4.A.1.236A new firmware with build number 23.4.A.1.236 has been certified for the Sony Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. The new version compares to the current firmware release 23.4.A.1.232 and we imagine that Sony is fully patching the Stagefright exploit. The last update patched most of the exploits, but one new exploit emerged (CVE-2015-6602). We’ll keep you posted once the new firmware starts to roll.

Update: Looks like the same firmware has also been certified for the Xperia Z2 series.

Thanks leso60!

    It’s certificated for the Z2 series too

  • Alvin

    Can’t wait to try the new camera UI and marshmallow…..

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    You think Z2/3 will get it too?
    Meant about the camera UI

  • Dunexus
  • Philipp Scheller

    I’m in the marshmallow preview and it’s amazing but until now there is no new UI in the camera app

  • Alvin

    I think it will… Because when z1 came out, and after updates, the early z series got the 4.3 update with the z1 ui there

  • Saiprasad Todankar


  • Now you can download latest Android Marshmallow wallpapers


  • hmmm

    Why plastic around screen on xperia z5??? This is the worst thing on xperia z5!!!

  • Matt

    then no new camera UI for you ! :P

  • Alvin

    Preview, right? :)

  • Alvin

    Swiping to change modes could save a lot of time for me… Just like the new camera ui

  • The most irritating thing since two last updates, is removal of black widget clocks (for no reason imo). Now, the clock widgets are useless on white backgrounds (including that beautifull white wallpaper from Z5 series).

    Unfortunate Xperia T3, E3 and E4g users!!!! :-(

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    We want to hear more from you. :)

  • beznazwie

    New version… But not for z3 dual. Again… In Central Europe there is still no 232 version for dual…

    Android 6 theme for xperia devices (no root needed) Enjoy :)


  • Dimitrije Dk

    Where’s the update that fixes the laggy lockscreen and settings on the Z2?

  • Matt

    Since when this is an issue -_-

  • Dimitrije Dk

    Take a look at the 5.0.2 animation when unlocking the phone and the 5.1.1 animation and you will see the difference. Also there is lag in the settings app when scrolling down for the first time and its annoying.

  • cicababa

    + E4 :(

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Aha you’re right, so we might get the new UI, Awesome :D

  • Matt

    Now you’re just nitpicking. I do not observe such issue. But then again I did a clean install

  • Nickolas Stone

    Meanwhile my Tmo Z3 hasn’t even got 5.1.

  • Let’s hope that they fix that brightness / contrast bug, because it’s really annoying to reboot the phone to make it go away

  • Salman Irshad

    Only for Z3 compact users…. Best custom rom for u guys… Fast stable nd extended battery life… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVc67MatT1c

    I hope they will fix Stagefright and mobile radio active bug in millons of Z and Z1 units as well.

    Also Z has various bugs, eg. it will register your touch even if the screen is off, for about 1 second (It’s really disturbing). Misalignment battery percentage in the status bar.. When I think them, it makes me think Sony prepared Lollipop update with their ass for Z and Z1 series. Premium phone needs Premium software. Lots of Z and Z1s are Premium shit at the moment..

  • Philipp Scheller

    battery life is about 2 days -> using wifi and 4g some hours of musik over Bluetooth in the car, watch youtube…

  • Florin Costin

    23.4.A.1.236 is only Vodafone, so far

  • Mario Junior

    It is better to wait lying.
