Xperia XZ, XZs and X Performance owners receiving October 2017 security update

by XB on 4th October 2017

in Firmware, Xperia X series, Xperia XZ series

Hot on the heels of the earlier update for Xperia X/X Compact owners which included the 1 October 2017 Android security patches, similar firmware is now rolling for Xperia XZ, XZs and X Performance owners. The new update moves the build number from 41.2.A.7.65 to version 41.2.A.7.76. Given the small change in build number, we don’t expect any other tangible improvements, but do let us know if we’ve missed anything in the comments below.

    september update already seriously updated battery life on my X Performance. Sony is good.

  • Łukasz Leszczyński

    And I am here with my XZ1 stuck on August patch :/ its been 7 days since last update, come on Sony :(

  • Nirmal Kapopara

    I think next update is oreo

  • dnmw2705

    Well, I paid 700 bucks for the XZ Premium and haven’t received something yet. August security patch. I had the hope that XZ Premium owners received the Oreo patch as first or got it at the same time the XZ1 came out.
    Quiet disappointed about it.

  • RuggeD_XBoY

    Sony back at it again with the fast updates. Great job!

  • impasse

    had the update when i woke up this morning, east coast, xperia xz f8331

  • NinJy

    Stop using slow ass carrier branded roms.

  • yopo

    Como se llama el tema que tienes puesto? yo lo tenía pero no lo encuentro!!

  • XZ1s from Sony Center and other places than carrier ones for Poland (CE1) already got .324 update, which I think should have newer security patches. PLUS ones are still on .281 and I wouldn’t expect it to change in closest future…

  • True and not true. Some carriers are even faster than some unbranded fws. E.g. Orange MCV and T-Mobile are mostly faster with updates than CE1, so in Poland, Czech nad Slovakia it’s better to use branded fw than unbranded one to have fast and all updates (CE sometimes skips them).

  • Vanshaj goyal

    After successful update, my phone faces lots of problems.
    The above status bar with important shortcut options was missing.
    Phone restarts 3-4 times.
    Phone starting heating nd hangs.

    Kindly help

  • Same thing here in Mexico, F8331!

  • Łukasz Leszczyński

    Yeap, I’m on .324 (CE1 from Sony Centre) since last week.
    Just baiting people for fun :)

  • Garlic

    Working fine for me. Maybe it is an incompatible app, see if any are draining battery excessively.

  • sebaa123

    Hola, el tema se llama: Evening Sea 1.1.0

  • trogdor

    I got 41.2.A.7.76 on my XZs today. Since then it’s been super hot and busy going through my battery. 30% spent in “Media”?

  • Murat Tahran

    Make a hard reset after updates…

  • Ridz.One

    What the actual purpose of the updates if there is no significant improvement been implement?

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I have september security patches on my xz premium in Sweden, non carrier locked :)

  • ben bleho

    Will z5 series get another update, or is 32.4.A.0.160 the last one? Does anybody know about this? thanks.

  • Reza

    Seems that Sony abandoned Z3+ and Z5 series.. Still stucks on June security patches…

  • Talos the Robot

    Maybe Android Oreo is coming soon to the XZ Premium and that’s why it isn’t updated to the latest security patch.

  • ansari jassim

    My Xperia Z5 premium headphone jack is not working after android 7.1 update.
    Can anybody help?

  • lolop

    Just security updates. Every major operating system needs them.

  • If upgrading notification was already there then it was scanning/updating things under the hood.

  • DIsChaos

    Anyone can help me here? I would like to set sound of my phone to max withouth setting the notification to max also is there a ways to do this or impossible?

  • vigneshprince

    wi-fi hotspot frequently not responding in older update

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    Reset Settings?

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    Security Update will come along with the Oreo update, which is why it’s getting the update later.
    But better be late and safe than fast and unstable.

  • ansari jassim

    Yeah i did that.
    Even did factory reset!!

  • JC

    Z5 series is dead.

  • JC

    It’s not the update or software related at all, I’m afraid you’re part of the club of faulty jack sensors that end up breaking and thus the phone doesn’t recognize when you connect a headphone/aux cable.

    The only solution I’ve found is an app called SoundAbout which lets you manually activate the headphone/aux output when you need to use it.

  • Gede Agus Supriyanto

    I faced PHONE IDLE battery draining after october update. Normally my X performance battery around 50% from 8 AM to 6 PM, now it’s around 10%.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    You got some app bacground incompatibility. Cleared system cache already?
    If that doesnt help, do a factory reset…

  • Kiran Pasupuleti

    Despite what Sony and Google claim about fluider phones with every update, my Xperia Z3C with Kitkat and Lollipop was the smoothest and fastest, and it has been gradually downhill..

  • Prasad Daki

    Xperia XZ1 doing great for everyone I guess….:-)

  • azzido

    And I am still on .137 with my XZ Premium, unbranded, sim card Orange :(

  • maybe at the end of this month, or in the first weeks of november, we could see august security patch for Z5 lol

  • Reza

    Exactly. Hahaha..

  • Premium updates not included with XZ’s and X Performance. Our firmware start 45 these devices start 41.

  • Our updates are different from these devices… We should get it Oct 10 – 13th.

  • razorg

    An update has just landed for Z5 series. It brings September 2017 patches.

  • Reza

    Good to know that, hopefully it’ll come to Z3+ as well.. What’s ur phone btw? Is it z5c?

  • Gahead
  • razorg

    Yes, Z5C.

  • Jan Nara

    poor singapore variant still no update.

  • Talos the Robot

    Last year’s X Performance was updated to Nougat in late November of 2016, so I think the Oreo update to our device will be delivered around this time.


    Yeah true. I just got the September Security Update today, and October Security Update is yet to be installed. Blame it on the 3 major mobile carriers in Singapore, I will rather get International version for faster updates

  • Abdul Mutahher

    I had experience of fingerprint sensor hardware missing is last update.

  • Tjoohej

    My phone is a lot faster since this last update, Xperia XZ international.

  • Starfy

    Did you figure this out? Mine is still draining so fast! I’ve got my wifi and bluetooth scanning turned off, screen so dim I can hardly see it, I don’t know what else to try… Phone Idle, Android System and Android OS using more than any apps I’m actually using.

  • sensual_sloth

    I don’t know what to do – I just purchased this phone and it has downloaded and “installed” the update 6 times. Every time the phone goes on it does it again. What could be wrong?
