    Your article never even mentioned the E2363 is it the forgotten model? Languishing way back at November 2015…and yes I have the current “Sony What’s New” App, to notify me. Can you help?

  • razorg

    Really? I thought M5 got updated with only August 2016 patches? :/ At least that’s what my friends who use M5 told me…

  • Eduardo Otero

    Well, Sony released the updates so is not Sony’s fault that you don’t have them yet.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Flashtool?

  • Ari Setiana

  • Shady

  • mrhangover Rox

    check it bro

  • mrhangover Rox

    latest firmware got released last week, it’s fix the cancer sd card corrupted.. damn sony 2 months to fix it

  • mrhangover Rox
  • Sahil

    Theme??

  • razorg

    No offence but, it’s such a shame that the much awaited up-to-date security patches just don’t come to “flagship” phones such as Z5, but the more mid-range intended M5. But on the other side of the coin, I’m so happy for M5 users who are getting the deserved treatment as well :)

  • Amol Chhabra
  • mrhangover Rox

    i feel you dude, z5 so rarely got update, but z5 can proceed to Nougat update, im happy for that your device is flagship… for mine opinion, i’ll think this gonna last update for xperia m5 coz fixing the corrupted sd card since it’s been error after restarting the phone. cheers

  • Chris

    This is a joke! Sony is not taking security updates seriously at all. Very disappointed.

    I am starting to regret buying XZ.
    Xiaomi Mi 2 is coming with this specs:

    1. 5.7″ curved LG Amoled 2K screen, forcetouch
    2. Snap 821 with 4 or 6GB of RAM
    3. 64 or 128GB of fast UFS 2.0 memory (not slow eMMC like Sony is using)
    4. 2 cameras on the back with new Qualcomm Clear Sight technology
    5. 4100mAh battery! + Quick Charge 3.0
    6.USB type C 3.0, not 2.0 like Sony
    7. Eye scaner + biometric scanner under the screen, built into it.
    8 Hi-Fi sound

    Price: 60% of regular XZ price!!!

    Anyone wants to buy my XZ ??? :(

  • fraulein

    when sony xperia m4 aqua get VOLTE firmware

  • Kent

    You may not even need to do this! In my Aqua M4 settings, it said it had the latest software as of now (but was 26.1.A.3.111). So started to follow this process. After installing the PC/Xperia Companion, and connected the phone, I clicked “Software update” and it said this version (26.3.A.1.33) was available so I let it update and done. Appears it just wasn’t available OTA yet – or something screwed up that meant it wasn’t checking properly but thought it was.

  • Milt MacFarlane

    Best answer yet Kent will try that thanks

  • Kent

    Did you get it via “Software Update” too?
