A few days back we spotted Xperia L 15.3.A.1.16 firmware getting posted on Sony’s open source archive page and now Xperia L 15.3.A.1.16 firmware has started hitting Orange carrier users across Europe. 15.3.A.1.16 firmware is already confirmed on Orange carrier in France, Spain and Slovak Republic. 15.3.A.1.16 firmware is not spotted on regular variants of Xperia L yet anywhere.
15.3.A.1.16 firmware is an update over previous 15.3.A.1.14 firmware and still keeps Xperia L on android 4.2.2 version. Sony has officially updated low end Xperia M to android 4.3 and Xperia L is still stuck on android 4.2.2. Sony has not mentioned Xperia L name yet for KitKat update but we do expect Sony will roll directly android 4.4.2 KitKat update on Xperia L skipping android 4.3 just like the case seen with Xperia SP.

What is going wrong if i flash my vodafone XL with orange firmware?
I just flshed it on my xperia l C2104 and works fine. The network name in status bar is annoying and it appears even after unticking it from settings. This firmware has a cool Amber theme which looks like gold and some live wallpaper special to Orange. Love them
I got mine updated on orange carrier in Dominican Republic
