At present Sony Mobile is in middle of crisis regarding continuous delay in android 4.3 update for Sony Xperia SP, T, TX and V as promised by them and in middle of that regular updates are being rolled for Xperia Z family members. Recently we saw 14.2.A.1.136 firmware getting rolled for Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra and same is expected to hit Xperia Z1 Compact very soon. 10.4.1.B.0.101 firmware was rolled on Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z.
Just now a new 14.2.A.1.142 firmware is certified for Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Z1 Compact on PTCRB for all the variants. 14.2.A.1.142 firmware has very less chances of getting rolled as we heard Sony is now currently working on 14.3.A.X.XXX firmware which will bring Android 4.4.X KitKat update on Xpera Z1, Z Ultra, Z1 Compact.[ UPDATE – 22 FEB ]
[ UPDATE – 11 FEB ]
14.2.A.1.142 and 14.2.A.1.144 are both carrier based firmware so they may not be rolled on regular variants If everything went well next update will be 14.3.A.x.xxx firmware KitKat.
Let’s have a look the 14.2.A.1.142 firmware certification.
14.2.A.1.142 firmware certification for Xperia Z1 C6902 / C6903 / C6906 / C6943 on PTCRB.
14.2.A.1.142 firmware certification for Xperia Z Ultra C6802 / C6806 / C6833 / C6843 on PTCRB.
14.2.A.1.142 firmware certification for Xperia Z1 Compact D5503 on PTCRB.
Above mentioned firmware has very less chances of coming now, we would be surprised if it comes anyhow.
