      Have you tired it ? XDA user worf_1977 shared this….!!!!

    • Anurag Kumar December 24, 2013 at 1:04 am - Reply

      Hi,, yes it seems the same version as you mentioned, and we removed the link from the post. Yes Just now we saw that XDA user commented as “I don’t know what happened to my build.prop file as i have edited it, changed to spanish unbranded, checked, and PCC downloaded the firmware, wich turned out as .569 Journalists again) and build.prop has not changed, either with BuildProp Editor, or editing i it as plain text, so, until further notice, the FTF will not be available”

      We will post the new FTF links as soon as they are out.

          Well sorry to say no C6602 Ftf is being uploaded by any XZ users ( because not rolled in India yet ), What I will suggest you is wait for official update in your region.

          How to get out of bootloop ? As you see the Sony logo atonce press volume down button and insert usb cable into phone and try to update your phone via SUS.

            C6602 :)
            Amin, if you hope me had the C6902 hahaha :)
            Yes, already done that but no update either on the SUS. Guess i just download the C6603 FTF file in this topic and flash it again on my phone…..

            • Anurag Kumar December 24, 2013 at 4:10 pm - Reply

              yes C6602 my bad :P Well you can C6603 ftf and then root your device edit the build.prop as per your region settings and then re-update your phone via SUS and you get official update 4.3 as per your region.

                No, thanks. I don’t want to root my phone haha :D

    The article says “Xperia ZL Android 4.3 10.4.B.0.569 firmware confirmed in regions like Sweden, Chile, Germany.”

    This is not true! Why do you say this in your article if it is not true?
    Other news sites are citing your false claims! Don’t you think you should correct your facts here?

    Your news is already a month old and still NO Xperia ZL Android 4.3 10.4.B.0.569 firmware for Germany!

      All updates are region dependent, it does not mean that in whole Germany it should roll at same time.
      May be in one part of Germany it is available and in other parts it is not or may not be available never.

      We stand by what we wrote, we have users in those countries who confirmed us the update.

      Kindly note updates are all region dependent, as it is rolled in Germany it doesn’t mean that it should also come where you are residing in Germany. Yes article is 1 month old and the update has been rolled in many countries and in some not, we can’t update all countries list whenever update rolls in their region. AT THE time of writig article update was confirmed by many users in those countries.
