z, 09 Sep 2014Guys I have not yet received kitkat update 4.4.2 for my Sony Xperia z in
India ( kerala). My ... moreHere is how updates are rolled: Sony releases it and carriers in every country have to check it and agree if their network and services are compatible.
The xperia Z has variants like the international C6603, the C6602, the american C6606 and C6616 and the japanese model. Those are for targeted markets. All those models run a different rom from Sony that is made especially for them just for carrier compatibility.
I got the c6606 which is the American xperia z from Tmobile US. This variant is still in Jelly Bean. Because Tmobile has to tweak the software for their specific features.
Now since I do not care about those features, i flashed a rom from the international xprria z.
Now if the update is available for the international one, I get it..
does any Indian uses got update on.Xperia z.. ota or pc companion...

[deleted post]I think samsung fanboys r removing there frustration here. Every one knows samsung is more like a Chinese company. There is no comparison between sony nd shamesung.
AnonD-59645, 09 Sep 2014Thanks for the reply. Can you point out some of those flaws for me or direct me to a source? A... moreThere is a missing comment, but here goes the jist of it.
You can see the official Cyanogenmod (for your device) here:
You can read about the previous troubles in the official topic at XDA, issues which (at the time) were mostly kernel related (no working recovery, no offline charging and some other stuff).
The official builds were stopped during that time, I suppose that if they returned building those then the issues must be fixed (in some way).
wish, 09 Sep 2014Thnx Sony I hope u will give the latest android L later Yes,xperia z have requirements for android l!!!!
How do you try to update? You can't do these updates on phone like 4.x to 4.x+1. You need to do it though PC with PC Companion.
