hey Anurag, two questions: do you know where I can get the Chilean Generic 1272-2707, and 2nd, the FTF for Global 10.3.1.A.0.244 are broken, one is just empty space and the other one seemps corrupted
Try looking on XDA site on Tablet Z section for your regions ftf.
“FTF for Global 10.3.1.A.0.244 are broken” broken where ?
from this: https://www.gizmobolt.com/2013/08/28/xperia-tablet-z-sgp311-wi-fi-android-4-2-2-10-3-1-c-0-136-firmware-update-rolled/
where it says: Download Xperia Tablet Z SGP311 Global 10.3.1.A.0.244 firmware ftf, 1st link is empty with no files, and 2nd one is corrupted and just shows words
Oops sorry my bad, by mistake wrote wrong firmware number, try this link https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzFytfpAXJmFS3VYT3FnSUpYUGc/edit
that one is the SGP312 🙁 I need the 311 one u.u
try 1st link and then click on “download” all at bottom, it may work.
tried already, but doesn’t work. Well, I guess I’ll have to wait some weeks :B
Hi anarug is there a chance that we T TX and V get the update together at the SP? Is it possible that sony roll 4.3 without certification from ptcrb. THank you happy new year
Not a chance, xt xtx xv are still in testing not rolling till 1st week of jan 2014 and hopefully for xsp should comes soon
But sony said it will have 4.3 at december? they announced it on blogs.sonymobile.com at november7 and until now they are testing it??? So sony is a lier?
They said they will start rolling 4.3 for all mentioned devices in december and they have done it, updation to 4.3 has started. It was never said that all devices will be updated in december only rollig process was to start in december and it can take as much time further
Proabaly this is that last update for xt xtx and xv and it will come as when it is ready posting such comments is not a solution, Sony doesn’t bother it actually.
So better wait when it is ready it will come afterall making a firmware is not an easy task an priority is also a different thing.
I noticed some improvement. the network name now appears correctly, even when there muchs notifications. There is quick access to brightness control from the Quick Settings menu. Notification lights are different, flashing white for Gmail. Somtimes I have a darck flashing on screen 🙁
the tablet neet to be rooted
or something like this cuz I am too worry about it
omg i made that and now i have android 4.4
