      How the hell!!!! I have tried OTA, Sony Update Service and PC Companion… none of it says there’s an update available :'((

      However Xperia’s official software page states the latest SW 4.2.2 is available!!!

      could you tell me how you got yours updated???

      • Anurag Kumar June 28, 2013 at 6:13 pm - Reply

        Buddy it’s region dependent firmware update. It will come as soon as it is decided for your region.

    Hi Anurag…can u upload the indian ftf file .423…

    • Anurag Kumar June 28, 2013 at 6:17 pm - Reply

      Buddy you can do one thing that, flash the European version file, it has English language that’s what needed for India and after flashing you can re-update your phone via SUS. Then you will get the Wordl-Brand ftf file automatically.

    the link Download C6603_10.3.A.0.423_Generic ES.ftf I 0.7 GB actually diverts to the Generic HK.

    How would one extract the ES rar files? software etc?

    Anyway I flashed the HK firmware on my xperia z in the UK with the flashtool on the day you put it up

    and guess what, I forgot to tick the USB debugging and enable Unknown sources boxes……

    been a few days now, phone is working fine :) still gets a bit hot though.

    if you get hold of UK generic, can you post and thanks for the downloads!

    • Anurag Kumar July 17, 2013 at 6:58 pm - Reply

      You can download the ftf file and update your phone…for C6602 it has come..

      I guess C6603 is not supported in India, so there won’t be any update :/

    Hey Anurag, I know its not the region i should ask questions. but am in a grave danger that’s why am gonna ask few questions mate. I updated my Xperia Z C6602 with C6602 firmware. The firmware name was “C6603_10.3.1.A.1.10_Orange FR.ftf” When i re-boot the phone after the flashing process the Orange company boot image loads up and then something like saying this “FACTORY STARTUP SERVICE-Please wait for POWER OFF button” loads up. I cant click on anything nor i can chnage the language as its in France language. Can i downgrade back to 4.1.2 and get back my precious Z back ? Or can i just re-flash the C6602 from this thread ??

    Please do reply on this comment mate.

    Regards
    Jamez

    • Anurag Kumar October 20, 2013 at 8:57 pm - Reply

      First of all buddy there was no need of installing that firmware as a new updated .67 firmware rolled out for xz.

      Yes buddy that firmware was especially for orange france carrier it was mentioned already.

      What you should do now :-

      Download .67 firmware ftf file for your xperia z, latest version
      Then flash the ftf file.

      Why 4.1.2 ? Xz is on 4.2.2 ?

  22. Jamez October 21, 2013 at 6:38 pm - Reply

    Hmmm mine one says 4.1.2 lol. And yea I know I shouldnt have updated from other site. Shud have came here first lol :|
    But hey I have got my Xz back just re-flashed some how to 4.1.2 and now am thinking of upgrading it. But i dont know with which firmware should i do it. can u give me the link for the new C6602 update mate ?

    Regards

    • Anurag Kumar October 21, 2013 at 6:49 pm - Reply

      Connect your XZ to PC Companion and check for firmware updates, if available then update it officially.

      If PCC not showing any update then you update to latest Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 10.3.1.A.2.67 firmware.
