Re: New Xperia XZ firmware

I'm running out of Pampers again this month. Vodafone, Virgin, and EE have got the May update (ending in 128, as opposed to 107). That only leaves O2 and Three, who traditionally have been extremely late to push any updates.

 

I'm off to buy an XL pack of nappies.

I choose to believe that it's now rolling simply because of the above post Smiley Wink

 

Thanks O2.

Re: New Xperia XZ firmware

UK mobile networks have been historically notorious for sitting on firmware updates for months or sometimes not signing off on new firmware at all.

 

It's why I've bought my phone hardware SIM free for a number of years.

Re: New Xperia XZ firmware

No they haven't,
UK networks are above average for rolling out of firmwares, especially on Sony phones where they hit an above 70% on other customisations.

Re: New Xperia XZ firmware

It's not been released by Sony for very long, but it's happened again - O2 are the last UK network to not have the new build (ending in .184 as opposed to .171) with the September Android security updates. I'm excluding Three like I did last time, they're still on August's build and don't frequently update their users.

 

For anyone new, or anyone who has forgotten about my obsession, I know there's a process to go through for O2 before they release their build of the update, it's just that EE, Vodafone and Virgin all managed to do it a few days ago.

 

Getting an XZ3 (probably) in November and because the updates for that are guaranteed, you probably won't hear from me for a couple of years Smiley Happy

Re: New Xperia XZ firmware

The XZ3 updates still have to be tested by networks..

Re: New Xperia XZ firmware

Yeah, I just meant I wouldn't have to wonder if O2 aren't planning to bother with an old(er) device any more. This, or possibly next month's update, will be the last for the XZ according to Sony's official press release a few months ago anyway - it's two years old now (well, it depends when they count from, obviously it was released in different coutries over a period of a couple of months).

Re: New Xperia XZ firmware

Well it won't get software updates, but security updates might be treated differently
