    Finally Sony is taking security updates seriously, even if it’s just the XZ, atleast this is the first step..

  • PatQQ

    Can someone report that double to wake is fixed or not with this updates? Really hope it’s not a hardware issue. Three of my friends have the same issue as well.

  • Luis E Henriquez

    I have the same issue. I have TW region which has not received the update yet. Really hope the double tap to wake issue gets fixed.

  • Ofek

    I have the Xperia XZ and i checked the double tap to sleep issue and i can tell you that 2 of 3 times it is working perfectly fine :)
    I’m on 39.0.A.1.250

  • Luis E Henriquez

    I am not talking about double tap to sleep. That works perfectly. I am talking about double tap to WAKE.

  • Ofek

    Lol, my wrong, I actually meant to say double tap to wake :)

  • Wilhelm-Bernhard Trometer

    Here in the nordics is nothing yet but i hope to see that new update in the next week double tab to wake up and sleep works perfectly on both of my xz i have the black version and one in forest blue during the last for weeks hav nt experience any lag or issues with both of them

    how can you remove the SIM labels on the status bar like in the first picture? Is a phone setting or is a root-related mod?

  • PatQQ

    I tried the XZ in the shop, it works perfectly fine as well…. but some of use have this issue and it’s pretty wide spread… We’re on 39.0.A.1.250. XDA also has a lot of ppl with the same problem, same goes with Sony forum.

  • PatQQ

    妳可以去反應,越多人反應越好吧~ 看看能不能換新的

  • NonSugar♡

    XZ dual sim does not has the label…

  • theskig

    This is a very good news, thanks for the info!
    I was waiting this since so long.
    I hope they will do the same thing on my Z5p next update.

  • I cant do app udates from google store after the update on my XZ!!! Help Plz.

  • Taquidi

    Try to clean the Google play app cache, restart phone and try again.

  • deekbee

    Seriously? Nope, my Z5C is still on the April security patch. Although I guess that treating owners of the prior generation phones as low importance is pretty normal for Sony.

  • Bashar Shehab

    First thing, you can see tgat i said “even if it’s just the XZ” so i know Z5 is still late. Second thing is that Z5 is on August security patch, you just didn’t receive or install the update.

  • deekbee

    Sony are slow on updates; I install every one as soon as it is available. Possibly some operator influence, but Sony are still taking their time.

    The relative lack of support (and camera performance) are amongst the reasons why I’m unlikely to buy another Sony (really, the camera is average at best).

    Android N – they should be at least providing us with the month to know when to expect it. I hope that before santa we will get it.

    Sencond thing is the Release Notes / changelog should be the standard even for small changes / bug fixes.

    Definitely they should improve communication with the client as currently it is close to non existing :(

    I wonder how they are going to keep their existing clients / fans as they do not want to talk to us. They prefere to shut in their office and do not have any communication or relationship with us. Seems Swedish and Japanese people are not to social.

    Double tap to wake is working fine for me

  • Ngai-Han Liu

    Be nice if they did the UK firmware too….

  • kramer

    From XperiFirm I see that there are different models with different CDA numbers.

    Is it possible to flash a firmware from a different CDA to my model? Or should I always match the firmware with my CDA number?

  • Michael Wiedemann

    It has to match. It’s possible to flash any firmware with Flashtool. But you will lose your data.

  • peltruquin

    I bought the US version of the XZ, didn’t notice anything weird, then I flashed the UK version somehow I notice some stutter specially when going to the -1 google now pane some times and double tap was more like quadruple tap, then I flashed the Central European rom since is updated and double tap works better not perfect but way better, I still get the stutter when I switch to the google now pane on the left, annoying!

  • Mark Ogden

    Been having loads of issues with my Sony xz freezing, touch screen not working, says ui system keeps failing and can’t even end calls as screen stays black hoping this updates fixes issues!

  • Mustafa Sezer

    You can’t flash UK rom to an American XZ phone. They have different hardwares and stuffs

  • korbindallis
  • this rom suppurt arabic

  • haxona

    Those are signs of a bad system, have you tried resetting the whole phone?

  • Olaf Duits

    Why am I still not receiving this update? I have an official phone, nothing flashed etc. Still on the .250 version with the security patches of july 2016.
