Xperia XA and XA Ultra Android Nougat rollout re-starts

by XB on 5th July 2017

in Android, Featured Content, Firmware, Xperia X series


We recently reported that Sony Mobile had temporarily suspended the Android 7.0 Nougat firmware update for the Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra, due to “inconsistencies related to the over-the-air delivery system”. We were told that the update would be kick-started again shortly, and we’re happy to report that the Nougat update is now live.

Sony Mobile is rolling out slightly newer build numbers versus the previous firmware. Xperia XA users should be on the lookout for build number 33.3.A.0.131 (versus 33.3.A.0.127 previously), while Xperia XA Ultra owners will receive build number 36.1.A.0.182 (versus 36.1.A.0.179 previously). FTF firmware links for all variants are listed below for those that want to manually update. If you have updated, please let us know your thoughts below.

    Nice sony!

    Sony is on the right path, they are upticking every right thing they should do.
    Now we just need to educate people about making better choices.

    I agree with the people who buy Xiaomi or Oneplus flagships, those brands are made for the people who can’t afford the best. But in the race of the Titans, I see how Apl/Sam are just buying their way to the top as they have a huge bullshit amount of money that can advertise the shit out of those stupid devices.

    I mean look at the practicality of the new Sam offerings, what are those devices anyways? Huge bezel less displays with brand new Hardware inside it, even Mi can do that. I still remember how Mi Mix was hugely appreciated for their approach but still criticized for the new 18:9 ratio that broke the immersion when 16:9 content played on it because of those Virtual bezels, but no one complained about that with S8/+. And the bezel less displays are hard to hold, smaller phones leave next to none space for heat dissipation and limits overall performance (S8/+ can only record 10mins of 4K to avoid heating, while XZP can go on and on).

    Hey you know whether Sony has closed the service of jive music app or not

    Waiting 7.1.1 for my Z3+ Dual (Customized BR).

    Sony restarted rolling naugat for Sony Xperia xa ultra dual 7.0 but i hope you think about naugat 7.1.1 for xa n xa ultra.

  • Πέτρος Τ.

    when we wiil recieve the notification about the new nougat update (xaf3111) ??

  • Biancoceleste

    The Mi Mix is a real bezel-less device. It isn’t practical but it looks cool and is an engineering feat.

    The S8 still has bezels and also an oddly shaped screen that serves no purpose other than for marketing.

    Just updated my XA Ultra to build number 36.1.A.0.182. Update was 48.8Mb,because i updated to Nougat first time when they release the update,build number was 36.1.A.0.179 and about 980Mb. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b2c4b04e6c3e2d3254e3146eb518914b007b734ed5fca289313d2ebbe6422105.png

    What’s the connection for your post and Nougat update for XA and XA Ultra?

  • nužno zlo

    Who cares for chinese garbage..and especialy on topic for Sony XA and XA Ultra update?

  • nužno zlo

    This is topic for XA and XA Ultra,and i don’t understand why people come here to post about other models and to discuss about chinesse phones,weather,peace in the world etc.?

  • G-UNIT_(Z)

    flash it, omg

  • Geralt

    It was supposed to be only limited till the Upticking part, meaning wow Sony does take care of all its consumers. But then a little flow of emotions for the brand spilled out rest of the beans. Sorry :-)

  • Sahil

    What’s new?

  • jatin rajput

    I have not received any notification about android 7 on my xa ultra (f3216)

  • nužno zlo

    I haven’t seen any changes in 36.1.A.0.182. I guess it’s just a fix related to “over-the-air delivery system”. If i notice some changes,i’ll post it..

  • nužno zlo

    What’s your customization number..CDA? Settings–>About phone–>Diagnostics–>Facts–>Customization. In several regions Nougat is live and rolling.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4deca02ae5b9f8c83d9fb9509290fe8c75a3250112087d65724aeaa6a3e42a51.png

  • Bryan Grobmann

  • Bryan Grobmann

    Well I don’t have anything against Chinese phones. A lot of them are excellent.
    But you’re correct about straying off the topic, sorry for that.

  • kurakuradisco

  • Anirudha Kabra

  • Sahil

    Yep

  • nužno zlo

    Nougat update is live for yor customization no,as you can see on screenshoot from XperiFirm,first on the list. Try to update with Xperia Companion if you can’t with OTA. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/90ad36fd7cc502b7ccc9a865f79f8a7e86d72933571dcc2f980ee976b96cdfeb.png

    I love how people complain on Sony for just giving Android 7.0 nougat to Xperia XA and XA ultra users for now, when people who have Samsung Galaxy s8 and s8+ phones aswell as galaxy s7 and s6 only have Android 7.0 while the similar phones from Sony (Xperia z5 series, Xperia xz and x Performance aswell as Xperia xzs and xz premium all have Android 7.1.1 xD

    The new nougat update for xperia xa ultra dual is simply superb. My phone performance was far better than before. The new camera sett are superb https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/752f9850857f632110f63c38927e864c64c366cea3dfbe3f719d1d8a2175217d.png

  • Vladan Jovanović

    I can’t update my XA over Xperia Companion… problem with downloadig software… any help?

  • Vladan Jovanović

    I can’t update my XA over Xperia Companion… problem with downloading software update… any help?

  • And what is your reasoning for not caring for Chinese phones? I used Z1 for over 2 years, yet my Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro works better than Z1 ever worked.
    No longer do I have odd screen issues when the phone heats up a bit (Mi 5 barely ever heated up) and no longer do I have GPS issues.

  • You are confusing the guy. 1303-3635 is the CDA. R9A or R4B are customization versions, they are irrelevant to this discussion. Software version 36.1.A.0.182 is indeed available for your CDA, try updating via Xperia Companion, or manually using Flashtool and XperiFirm.

  • I flashed 33.3.A.0.127 from the ftf provided by Xperia Blog. All went good, except for the received calls that caused the app Force Close. Last night, I got the notification of OTA Update. Call issue got fixed. So far, all good.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Rakesh J

    i checked in software update, but i did’t get any update regarding build number 33.3.A.0.131, my previous build is 33.3.A.0.127.

  • David Rupnik

    You are already on Nougat. I don’t know if you will get the update since you already are on Nougat, but to check if the update is available, go here https://xpericheck.com/

  • Sahil

    Same here.

  • Hrijoy Majumder

    Why not India Generic for XA dual (F3116)?

  • Sahil

    Got it already. OTA wont come or idk when it will. Guess you already updated to last nougat build so and if you didn’t.. In both cases try with Xperia companion

  • Hrijoy Majumder

    Anyone here to suggest me a perfect curve screen protector for sony xa dual. Give me link.
