mubarack, 26 Mar 2014pls guy how do i downgrade ma own xperia z frm 4.3 to 4.2.2 hi mubarack,
note: before you do this make backup, copy all your staff on a pc!
on this link you can download the official 4.2.2 firmware, the one that is stable and i'm using it till today. this is the link: https://mega.co.nz/#!oqpykbwy!suxklr2vrmdnlltx_uikmtto9bu32iut2u6l0pnfnbo
if you can not open this link, type on google: c6603_10.3.1.a.2.67_ce.ftf and try to download it from somewhere.
on this link you can find tutorial about how to root that firmware: http://forum.xda-developers.co...-67-t2512422
if you can not open the link, then type this on google and open xda page:
[stock rom][ftf] xperia z (c6603) 10.3.1.a.2.67 generic uk (unbranded/united kingdom)
all you have to do is download that tft file, prepare your phone for flashing(follow the steps), flash the phone after that you need to root follow those steps and you'll have the latest update of android 4.2 version for xperia z c6603.
note: this method is just for c6003 and this is flashing to previous firmware not the current one that is 4.3, cuz latest fw was not good and that's why i decided to flash to 4.2
sorry for my bad english, i'm still new in au :)
good luck! :)

PeterIT, 24 Mar 2014I prefer 4.2 more than 4.3. I downgraded to 4.2 pls guy how do i downgrade ma own xperia z frm 4.3 to 4.2.2
The phone is fantastic. Performance, build quality, Display, S/W, UI, Music.. All these are pro's.. Although battery life is bad on 4.3.. U can downgrade to 4.2 and see the actual battery life. The phone overall is very good.. And beter than Z1 in terms of build quality.. 4.3 has been coded badly, hence bad battery life and heating issues during gaming.. But expecting 4.4 to be good without any bugs like these. Well done Sony.. Yet again u won the heart of a customer here.. Hope to see good development for this device unlike Xperia S..
Md Iftee, 24 Mar 2014I want to buy xperia z, what do u say xperia z owners??? Does it smooth after update to 4.3?? ... morei am using Xperia Z with android 4.3 and it runs exceptionally smooth. no problems at all! it just drains the battery a little quicker than its successor!
i loved this phone until a lil crack on d screen made d whole phone shut down.... now all i do is regret, was never succesful replacing the screen. bad bet.

guy8077, 24 Mar 2014hi,can i know how to root the phone on jb4.3?
You must unlock the bootloader first then you can root it. Unlocking bootloader voids the warranty as I know. That's why I stick to 4.2 and waiting 4.4.
guy8077, 24 Mar 2014latest firmware101 4.3 is more good than 4.2.camera more good and less heat.battery longer tim... moreI'm still on 4.2 cuz it's stable for me, battery is really good, my device is rooted and I have black settings menu not the white one.
I don't want to unlock the boot loader in order to root the 4.3
