    I am using Sony Xperia M. I also saw the notification about the new update. Does updating via PC Companion void the warranty? I was having this doubt since in the sonymobile official site, they are showing the latest software version to be 15.1.A.1.9. Please do reply at the earliest.

      sony’s website update latest firmware a bit late.
      NO PC Companion is the official way to update, no warranty issue is there.

    Hi there,

    i noticed the following:
    Before the update, changing the general volume via the up and down keys on the phone had a major effect on the volume even if i had pressed the key just one time. I think they’ve fixed that on this new version too! Now the loudness of the phone is not so sensitive anymore. This results in a better overall stepping of the volume.

    Regards, keep up the good work!

    I already update new Firmware.
    on my Xperia M. But there is one thing I confused.
    Before update, Notification sound is loud when volume is 50%.
    But Now I must have to make it 90% to make it loud and less than it , just a little sound >.<

    Please help about this situation.

    Thank you, Sorry if my English not good

      Hi Renaldy,

      facing the same “issue”…I wouldn’t say that this is a real problem…anyway i recognized a change how the volume is set now by the volume keys (see my post above). I would rather prefer to have two independet volumes for (1) the ringtone and (2) for the notifications.
      I’ve seen quite a few apps which provide the ability to do those things mentioned above. Maybe a look in the PlayStore would be a good idea.
      Keep going 🙂

    updated firmware to 15.1.C.1.17, i found my phone contacts can not transfer to sim card. i mean the screen show me its working but did nothing.
    is it a problem of android 4.1.2 or other reason.

    Hi guys,
    as i was looking for a root guide for the Xperia M (C1905) today, i have had a look in my service menue.
    I’m pretty sure that my status about the bootloader was: not allowed before the update. Now it says: allowed. Can anyone confirm this?
    I think that was a good idea from Sony 🙂

    my camera pics have bluish and yellowish tint in photographs what to do???

  12. Kam October 15, 2013 at 1:01 am - Reply

    So was this bluish and bad quality pictures drawbacks solved with this update? Just curious because Deepanshu just said to have this problem. Did you install the update and it didn’t improve the display colours and pictures?

    I’m having the latest firmware and I can say that the camera quality is pretty bad. The camera is out of focus in preview mode. Preview mode is used when you launch the camera to start shooting photos, but before you half-press the button to adjust focus. As a result, video calls applications like Skype will look very poor.
