Re: Xperia XZ and Android 7.1.1 in the UK

Bit disppointing, but fair play; if there is a problem then it would be pretty silly to release it. I hope you can fix it soon though. Still, thank you for the honest reply.

Some people on the Sony Xperia XZ forum are complaining about massive battery drain with 7.1.1 but to be honest, whenever something new comes out, some people on that forum apparently have catastrophic problems with it (and it wouldn't be O2 or UK specific anyway).

Thanks again for the reply.

Re: Xperia XZ and Android 7.1.1 in the UK

I read those "reports" too. They're surely either lying (or staging it somehow, like running a benchmark app at full-pelt), or there's something very seriously wrong with their phone which doesn't have anything to do with Android.

 

It would be interesting to know something about what is unique about the O2 network that is slowing the release of the upgrade, though. As I said, every other UK operator has done it now... apart from Three, who have a history of being slow for reasons I've not seen an explanation for. Their latest build is 39.2.A.0.361.

 

Just very intriguing.

Re: Xperia XZ and Android 7.1.1 in the UK

It'll be another week now at least, because for as long as I can remember (going back to when the Xperia T was new), Wednesday is system update day for Sony.

Re: Xperia XZ and Android 7.1.1 in the UK

Everyday the system has updates, it could be any time after o2 send it back.
However UK unlocked fw is also held back because of the way UK firmwares work..

It's available now, via both OTA and Xperia Companion.

 

I was wrong about the Wednesday thing, so sorry. Glad I was wrong, though! Cheers O2.

Re: Xperia XZ and Android 7.1.1 in the UK

Hey all, 

Just wanted to confirm that the Nougat 7.1.1 update has been approved so if you've not already got it, you should hopefully see it within the next week or so. Let us know how you get on Smiley Happy

Hello, I had to search quite a way back through the threads on here to find my username!

 

I'm essentially posting for the same reason. Last month I think all UK networks got the August Android security update right away, but this time around only EE (of the UK operators, that is) have got it.

 

If you prefer numbers to words (or prefer both):

 

The August Android security update changed the XZ's build to 41.2.A.7.53

The September Android security update changes it to 41.2.A.7.65

 

The numbering makes it sound like an absolutely tiny update, but it is an official Android security update we're talking about.

 

Also, it's simply "an update", so selfishly, of course I want it as soon as possible.

 

If you want a source for the facts about the build change see here. I'm saying that UK EE users have already got it because that's what XperiFirm tells me.

 

Think that wraps everything up - so come on O2, let's have the new update please. Cheers.

Re: Xperia XZ and Android 7.1.1 in the UK

Virgin Mobile UK have got it now. Vodafone still haven't got August's security updates, so presumably they aren't bothering any more.

 

I'm not going to shut up about it because O2 are the only people in the supply chain left to "remind" now that Google have updated Android, and Sony have approved/adapted/issued the updates for the XZ.

 

Google messed up badly last week by breaking the Play Store completely I think, and also now there's an additional exploit which only Oreo users are immune to. Sony will be updating the XZ to Oreo, by the way, they've officially announced it. So you're officially not allowed to forget about XZ users yet :silly winky face:

They won't.
