    i have not updated the last release 15.3.A.0.26 and still having 15.0.A.2.17 and now the new update 15.3.A.1.14 is coming , could you please suggest whether i have to update the first 0.26 and then 1.14 update? or i can directly update the latest 1.14?

    • nicko January 22, 2014 at 12:09 pm - Reply

      Alike Abbas, I m still on 15.0.A.2.17. My xperia L user friends said that 15.3.A.0.26 is another buggy update, it solve some problem but make another problem also :(. I doubt to update my Xperia. What’s your suggestion, mr Anurag?

    My Xperia L (C2105) is already get the last update from OTA. So this thing that I want to share. When I applying the theme from main screen, is ok. You can see from setting>display>theme is applying theme that you choose. But if you applying theme from setting, if you hold screen then you choose themes, it will show the previous theme. Try it. Please fix it team…
