Xperia L was recently updated to android 4.2.2 15.3.A.0.26  firmware which brought a lot many features which Xperia Z family android phones got in their update. It’s overall a major update for Xperia L users and has enhanced the performance of the device. Noticing carefully it was found that some stock apps have also been updated which are not yet updated on Xperia Z1 and other android 4.2.2 running Xperia smartphones. Recently we saw Sony rolling out Album app version 5.2.A.0.6,  Tasks App version 1.0.A.0.1Walkman app version 7.15.A.0.0 and Info-eye version 1.1.02 on Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra ( Album app on all Xperia Z family ).

Xperia Home launcher has been updated to version 6.1.A.0.5 in Xperia L android 4.2.2 15.3.A.0.26 firmware though the present Xperia Home launcher on Xperia Z1 reads as version 6.0.2.A.0.13.

Working on ? For now Xperia Home 6.1.A.0.5 version is tested for Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z only 🙂

Download Xperia Home 6.1.A.0.5 version

Install Xperia Home 6.1.A.0.5 version on Xperia Z1

Download the new Xperia Home 6.1.A.0.5 version from below link. Extracted from Xperia L.

How to Install ?
