Xperia M4 Aqua_26.1.A.3.111_1Sony Mobile has released a new firmware update for the Xperia M4 Aqua today, but before you get too excited, this is only a small update on Android 5.0 Lollipop. No Marshmallow for Xperia M4 Aqua owners just yet.

This is a global update and is live across all variants of the Xperia M4 Aqua (E2303, E2353, E2306) and Xperia M4 Aqua Dual (E2312, E2333, E2363). The single SIM variants have been updated to build number 26.1.A.3.111 (from 26.1.A.2.167), whilst the dual SIM variants have been updated to version 26.1.B.3.109 (from 26.1.B.2.147). Feel free to post your impressions once you’ve updated. In the meantime, we’ll keep you posted once the big Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware starts to roll.

  • Robert Dunn

    Can anyone verify if this update fixes a few bugs that the M4 Aqua had? (Like when the phone would only record black video after being on for a while and YouTube video not working at all)

    For me all works fine. And I see no changes at all. Been using the phone over 2 months, no problems at all (only storage).

    No update in US?

  • John Walker

    Be patient. M4 is not flagship. Be happy sony decided to update m4 to 6.0 at all

  • Robert Dunn

    Use the Sony Companion tool and it will update immediately.

  • Govind Sharma

    Updated to new firmware. Before update 1gb internal memory was available nw its 1.8gb. Approx 800mb got free. Dual Sim calling bug also got fixed.

  • Dhanasekar

  • Dhanasekar

    Anyone else face this issue

  • Eric Jay

  • Armin Harper

    Can anyone mirror the ftf for the E2306?

  • Amit Pharande

    Update Available in India…. I updated to latest Build 26.1.B.3.109

  • Wahyu Prasetyo

    Got updated yesterday, so far its better.. And the new look for dial pad, i think its little bit too small..

  • Restu Subekti

    Get update, and still Lolipop. Thanks Sony.

  • Filip Gonda

    Still no update ;( how about others ? its phone optimized or camera?

  • yopo

    I have the same problem!!!
    when i recorder a awesome video and then when i want to play the video i just see black :(

  • Robert Dunn

    Yeah, that happens once the phone has been running for a while, and when that happens, YouTube videos don’t play either…I was wondering if this latest software update fixed this bug…could you verify?

  • yopo

    what fixs this update?

    is it fix the black recorded video?

    cause when i record a awesome video, and then when i want to play the video i just see black :(

  • 168 MB of nothing. Wow, well done, Sony.

  • Its OK man, its only your phone

  • raymond

    Didn’t explore anything yet, the only i notice is the memory, before i update its like 1.7gb but not its 2.01gb i think the update is more concentrate to make file smaller to lessen the consume memory in the device, i actually shock when i see the 168mb for the update but i accept it any way and not disappointing on the result.well done sonny for now.

  • Fabio Neumann

    I would say some guys just complain a lot. I’m happy with my M4 and I’m also happy that Sony is addressing issues with the system. There is no bug free phone!

    even am thinking same i buyed this phone only because of camera and for marshmallow update ( m4) but sony cheated like a hell

  • Darshan Darshannavi

    camera performance is worst, its worst than cheaper phones enjoy in my money, sony the big cheater

  • Darshan Darshannavi

    Shamless sony

  • Dreadfull

    Update came on March 09. in Serbia.. So far I didn’t notice anything better, the only bad thing is that the Album slideshow live wallpaper is now gone, don’t know why did they terminate this feature, because it was one of my fav…

  • Touring_Dave

    Has Sony UK forgotten to release this?

    It’s now been 10 days since it was released in other European countries judging by the comments here but nothing has appeared on my M4 Aqua :-(

  • chris vallejo

    Odio a los operadlres… Por que no simplemente lanzar la actualización en pc companion o directo al telefono… Luego ellos la mandan asta que se les da si gana

  • Touring_Dave

    Update to my post above, the software update arrived thus morning on my unlocked UK e2303. Didn’t notice gaining 300+mb that some other users have commented on so performed a cache clear and phone now shows 1.5gb free so will look again at installing some of the apps I wanted to use but had to uninstall as I got down to only 450mb free at one stage.

    Have come to this phone from a OnePlus One which I still own. Whilst I prefer the functionality and performance of that phone I have come to realize that bigger isn’t necessarily better and that the smaller form of the M4 Aqua fits my life / usage better.

    Hopefully Sony will enable full installation of apps to the microSD card functionality when they update the M4 Aqua to Marshmallow otherwise I can see me passing this phone on to one of my kids and returning to my OnePlus despite its size.


    Finally I got 26.1.A.3.120 update yesterday :)

  • Lee Johnson

    Not sure if it fixes that, only just uploaded it, but I was getting same issue. I contacted Sony Support and had following advice:
    *You have to go to all app select Camera- FORCE STOP – – then CLEAR CACHE.
    **Restart app and phone. If that doesn’t work, repeat and select CLEAR DATA. ***Restart phone usually works.
    *****Do the same for Youtube, as I was getting no connection every time until I did the above. Sometimes I would have to do it weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
    Hopefully, the new update will fix the need for all the above, only time will tell?
    Hope this helps Good Luck!!!

    How can I change my App Bar or Notification Bar to the material design? without root or an app… The thing is I have seen photos of this version of android with the material theme and I would like to have it to….
