Yesterday we posted Xperia Z2 D6503 17.1.A.2.36 firmware ftf and found that Sony has updated many apps in this firmware including the media and camera apps. Camera app AR Effect reads new 2.0.8 version and media apps read Movies 6.1.A.0.18, Walkman 8.1.A.0.7 and Album 5.4.A.0.24 app version on new Xperia Z2 android 4.4.2 firmware.
XDA user dvha79_ddt has ported new media apps for rooted Xperia handsets running android 4.1.2 later version.
