in Firmware, Xperia Z3 series

Concept Xperia_MOB30G.Z1.3606_1Sony Mobile has released a new Concept Marshmallow release with build number MOB30G.Z1.3606. The Android 6.0.1 update includes the latest June 2016 Google security patches. Sony has also fixed an issue that some people had reading files with large SD cards. Other bugs that have been ironed out include a data connection retry problem, a Bluetooth restart fix issue as well as bug fixes for the Xperia Tips and InTouch apps. The update went live a few days back, so most people running Concept firmware should have received the new firmware by now.

    It annoys me how much time and effort Sony puts in the Concept and Beta software while they still haven’t released Marshmallow for all the phones they promised they would.

  • Nav

    Android marshmallow for M5 AND M4 AQUA DUAL!!!!! It is so much annoying SONY IS not paying attention to these devices….

  • The Elektronac

    Good thing is that they released a new concept firmware, which is used in several thousands of Z3’s or Z2’s. Who cares about the millions on M4, M5, C4, C5 right?

  • coach

    All this fixes and updates will propably come to the other devices once they get the update

  • Nav

    Haha once! And when does that once appears!

  • coach

    It will come, just relax and enjoy your device! MM isn’t so much greater than Lollipop. Being a mid-ranger device meens slower updates

  • Nav

    Slower! Wow.. M4 is on 5.0 not even 5.1 from past 1 year. U call it slow update!!

  • Hideg Jen? Péter

    I been thinking decide to buy Xperia Z3 is cheaper but get better MM fully release,
    or Xperia Z5 lastest but overheat Snapdragon S810, nothing good at all, it has fingerprint sensor
    Or Xperia X Performance, i loved it metal brushies frame back panel, liked it NFC position near camera front panel and great camera quality (I often uses skype on front camera)

  • Alvin

    Based on your likings, I think it would be better if you get x performance, if you have as much money as how much it costs, get it,

  • Alvin

    Yeah, keep whining. You’re lucky you didn’t own samsung, lg, or something else (except iphone).

  • Bashar Shehab

    Because Concept developers team is totally different from official software developers team.

  • coach

    What do you think will happen if you get the update? Will your device magically become a flagship? No it won’t. Doze mode atm isn’t better than Stamina mode, and adoptable storage isn’t offered. The only thing different in MM that the average user will notice is the settings menu which is a bit changed, nothing more than that. Stop whining about an update people, enjoy the device that you bought with your hard-earned money and eventually you will get the update

  • Nav

    Who said it will become but it will be having more stability than now on 5.0 and is that an issue expecting an desired update…probably u r on 6 or may be on 5.1 thats why u r at ease..

  • MoYeung

    Will Z1 receive further firmware update?

  • Matt

    Buy high end device next time,or a so you will feel what no Updates feels like .

    Be patient

  • hekermeker

    Wi-Fi dropping is gone ?

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Now what if Sony had the same way of dealing with their official updates like they do with their concept firmware? That would be truly awesome! If they can pull out quick updates and fixes for the concept firmware they should be able to do that with their official firmware aswell :)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I bought my x performance for 520 euros so ;)

  • Paul

    How do you get these concept firmwares?

  • Marcelo Deglane

    Hello, i own a Xperia z5 Premium Dual with
    Customized FR. The problem is my version don’t get the updates as quickly as other firmware. Is possible to install from other custom roms?

  • coach

    I did a bit of research on XDA and some sources (don’t know how trustworthy they are) claim that an early bug with the storage was found and the update had to be pulled down to fix it, and that the update will come late June. Whether that’s true or not I don’t know, but if they are trying to release a stable update without bugs instead of a buggy one, that’s a good thing in my books

  • coach

    Afaik yes, just use Flashtool and flash any ROM from XperiFirm for your device. There are plenty of guides on XDA, just do a bit of research :-)

  • coach

    If you use the Concept fw you get the updates. To get the Concept fw, you can flash it with flashtool. Chech XDA forums of your device for a guide to do it (if you have a device that supports it)

  • Patriciajcain2

    Oui tu peux en installant la ROM d’un autre pays. J’ai le pb avec mon Z5 “standard”, j’attends un peu et sinon je flashe une ROM allemande ou russe

  • Catherine McRae
  • Marcelo Deglane
  • Hassan Al-Qatary

  • Alain Leed

    Oui tout à fait, c’est bien pour le Z5 Premium Dual (E6833)

  • Amirul Hakkim
