Minor update lands on Xperia Z, ZR and Tablet Z LTE variants (10.7.A.0.228)

Xperia Z_10.7.A.0.228_1A small firmware update has begun to roll out for the Sony Xperia Z, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z. The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware update has build number 10.7.A.0.228 (versus 10.7.A.0.222 currently) and strangely leaves the handset exposed to the Stagefright exploit. Few other key changes have been noted.

The update is currently live in single regions for the LTE variants of the Xperia Z (C6603), Xperia ZR (C5503) and Xperia Tablet Z (SGP321). We would expect the rollout to widen to other regions shortly. As usual, FTF firmware download links are included below. If you updated, feel free to chime in with your impressions below.

    nice update

  • BrookG

    I hope this fixed the battery drain issue.

  • Chihuax

    There is not battery drain issue in any Sony’s Lollipop version, you might have a problem not related to software

  • Matt

    It says “????????..” xD
    It might be true though. Im expecting high res dac like V10

  • HAWX

    Dude, there is ;) Logitech fan is right.

  • Doubleyoupee

    I didn’t expect it to be updated without the stagefright fix.. what else is there to update?

  • HAWX

    Hey anyone who got the update can give us a feedback about the changes? And If you have major problems please go to Sony’s own forum site. ( But they mostly don’t give a fck actually)

    1) Appearently stagefright still continues
    2) Does Active radio bug which drains your battery very fast and makes your phone really hot continues?
    3) Misaligned status bar?
    4) No internet toggle on the toggles section while in Lockscreen?
    5) Can you exit from recent apps section by pressing anywhere or you still have to press back or home button?
    6) Does Some Xperia widgets like clock still looks half in landscape mod, on homescreen?
    7) Any changes to camera launch speed / interface ?
    8) Does it show how many minutes t? full charge in lcok screen?

    And any performance / bug improvements / downgrade you realise. Thanks!

    Got this on my tablet. Only issue I was having is screen not responsive when pressing power button. Had to press it to turn off screen and again to try and login. So far I havent ran into that issue.

    I’m having major problems with Exchange Active Sync with this version after updating my ZL on sunday. My exchange server is running on a different port, but the default Mail app seems to forget to use the port after the initial synchronisation. I can see HTTP traffic going to the port 80 version of the exchange host. I tried deleting the account and setting it up again, but after the initial synchronisation, all I get is ‘cannot connect tot server errors’. Please fix asap!

  • shyam

    When this update to India. Any one of you got the update?

  • amp_force_42

    You’re way too professional LOL
    In fact, #4 is concerned with security because you don’t want to lose your internet connection of your phone when you lost it, so that you can use whatsoever to track your phone.

  • HAWX

    Active Radio bug still continues. Many bugs, stupid software no proper fixes. Never gonna buy Xpria products at least for 5 years.

  • Ciryl

    Like Fatal1ty said, its a issue to Android itself, not Sony, its a wakelock on some aplication that is draining your battery, usually its in a heavy CPU usaged app, but most of the time is some app bound to the smartphone camera our GPS system.
