Xperia X sees new firmware update (34.0.A.2.301)

in Firmware, Xperia X series

xperia-xSony Mobile is rolling a new firmware update for the Xperia X with build number 34.0.A.2.301. This update doesn’t carry any changelog, but is a small update over the previous firmware version (34.0.A.2.292), so we imagine Sony has made some small bug fixes.

The previous ‘292 update introduced a number of enhancements including improvements to fingerprint management software (current fingerprints will be deleted and will need to be registered again), a fine-tuned camera experience, improved touch performance and various stability/battery improvements.

The ‘292’ update introduced the 1 June 2016 security patches from Google, but the latest ‘301’ update doesn’t move that forward. This update also includes the same home launcher (version 10.0.B.0.51) that features in the ‘292’ update, with support for circular or square folders, depending on your preference. You can find the FTF firmware file for both Xperia X variants below. Let us know if you find anything else new in the comments below.

Thanks Armaan, Terence and Vlado!

    Sony’s UI design language is getting better and better, but the fact that the latest security update dates back to June 1st is absolutely ridiculous.

    It sincerely saddens me that Sony isn’t taking that part of their Android software seriously, as it’s clear it isn’t a priority for them.

  • Totally agree. I have an X, and was considering paying even MORE for an X Performance as I’m hoping the price drops on that due to the newest model WTF its called.

    They fixed the bug with switching back to mobile data from Wifi. It just would not switch back from Wifi whereby you would need to switch air plane mode on and off

    Very happy to see my screenshot shown in this post.
    The previous update for HK variant is 277, which didn’t get 292. A bug must be pointed out about the launcher: if you go to launcher settings- Icon Appearance- Default, then you get rectangular (actually square) folder icons, then if you reboot your phone, it goes back to circular.

    I like the new X-series UI, but I miss the small apps and screen recording from Z series.

    can anyone tell me from where I can download the sony mobile update engine setup files for the latest version i.e.

  • Actman

    Was wondering when was the last time the Z5 Series got updated with those latest software or even security patches! Started losing my conviction towards SONY!

    I know this is not the perfect place to ask such a question, but can anyone guess / does anyone know what will happen to Xperia Keyboard? I like it and that’s the only keyboard I can stand, and I have read that the Xperia X* family has Swiftkey in its place.
    What is Sony’s strategy? It looks like they’re still updating Xperia Keyboard anyway…

    Dont worry, when the XZ and X series in general are officially available, Sony will eventually start releasing the updates for the Z5 series too. Kinda like how the M4 got it’s promised patches and updates a YEAR later :D

    Thank you! :)

    this update comes with 4G or LTE in the notification bar?

  • Nguyễn Khánh Vỹ

    I have only one question now.
    Z5 and X have the same price at my country right now
    3 days more I will get 1 of 2 , and I’ve ordered Z5(can change now)
    Is it a good preference, I saw that X has many compliments here, and maybe X will be supported more in the future.
    So the question is : What will be the choice between Z5 and X if have same price ( X even cheaper a little)
    Please give me an advice, I would be very grateful then.
    Thank you very much
