    I want to ask that my phone (Xperia S) whether can download and install normally?

    • Anurag Kumar July 27, 2013 at 9:55 am - Reply

      You can try installing like normall app or pushing in system/app.
      But do make backup of semcalbum.apk and semcmusic.apk of your xperia s.

    My Girlfriend also got an update to the Movies app, to version 5.1.A.0.6
    Anybody have this yet as an APK to download?

    • Anurag Kumar July 28, 2013 at 10:13 am - Reply

      No we have not got the movies app update yet…if possible can you please ask her to upload the apk file of that movies app and send some screenshots.

    How do I extract and upload the apk?

    • Anurag Kumar July 28, 2013 at 3:02 pm - Reply

      Download “bluetooth app sender” from google play store and after downloading the app, install it and run it in normal mode . Now scroll down and send movies app either via bluetooth to your pc or upload anywhere there you will see many options..

      EDIT :- Download and Install Xperia Z Movies 5.1.A.0.6 app OTA Update.
      [ Working on 4.2.2 Xperia Z – May or may not work on 4.1.2 XS,SL,AcroS,Ion,T,V ]

    • Anurag Kumar August 10, 2013 at 10:35 am - Reply

      Works only on 4.2.2 it seems you are on 4.1.2
      Or check the versions of app are they same that you have.

  8. xD.Sire August 10, 2013 at 10:51 am - Reply

    sir i’d already installed it.. yes nothing much changes, except the “apps & devices” is now gone.. well in the previous update i had it.. and the theme background seems have pattern now.. do you guys having all this too? sir kumar, do you know the answer why the “apps & devices” is gone in my movies apps? seems that you still have it, seeing in your example print screen above.

    • Anurag Kumar August 10, 2013 at 10:59 am - Reply

      Apps and Devices” option is in Movies app now…use video unlimited option with it…
      Can’t say why it is there…Sony has done it…it’s not an issue.

      • xD.Sire August 10, 2013 at 11:33 am - Reply

        sir even in the previous update.. the “Apps and Devices” option is already in Movies app, just wonderin’ it is now gone when i applied this new update (well even though its really not important).. sorry for many questions.. i manually update even the album & walkman, just because i cant wait for the sony’s official update release.. one last question, if i “uninstall update” the three apps would it be back into previous versions again? and if yes, can i still receive the sony’s official update for this apps in the pc companion or sus? thanks a lot…

        • Anurag Kumar August 10, 2013 at 11:35 am - Reply

          yes they will be back to its previous versions…official updates for these apps will be available via OTA only.

          • xD.Sire August 10, 2013 at 11:51 am - Reply

    Thanks for the updated stock apps.I have Xperia SP on JB (4.1.2).My current firmwire is .211.The Album app and Movies app successfully installed but the Walkman app isn’t installing.What to do…?
    And how big is the new update(how much MB)…?
    Is there any way to install X-Reality Engine without flashing or rooting…?

    Thanks in Advance…!!

    • Anurag Kumar August 13, 2013 at 5:27 pm - Reply

      check new Xperia SP 12.0.A.2.245firmware info here – http://www.gizmobolt.com/2013/08/12/xperia-sp-c5302-android-4-1-2-12-0-a-2-245-firmware-update-rolled/

      New update is almost 750 MB in size via PCC.
      Walkman app not installing because these are meant for android 4.2.2 framework.

      No way…obviously you need to flash the file for which you need root.

        And is there any case/cover which actually doesn’t hide the back LED strip of SP….

        Thanks in advance…!!
