A few days back we saw 10.5.A.0.230 firmware getting certified for Xperia Z, ZL and Tablet Z and now the same android 4.4.2 KitKat build has been certified for Xperia ZR also on PTCRB. A previous build 10.5.A.0.227 firmware was certified a bit ago and an updated build has now arrived which was recently seen rolling on some developer Xperia Z handsets.

10.5.A.0.230 firmware is certified for Xperia ZR C5503 and C5502 both variants and should hit the device in upcoming weeks. As per Sony’s statement KitKat for Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z, is scheduled in mid Q2 2014, exact date is still unknown. Below you can see the firmware certification on PTCRB.

    Considering how strict Sony has been following Google’s directions for Android, I don’t expect much of the 4.4.2 update. KitKat is well-known for its strict (obtrusive) permissions regarding the external SDCard.
    Yeah, I know that can be fixed if you have root permissions, but I wonder if rooting 4.4.2 will be easy or a pain in the a** like it was for the 4.3 versions. I’ve seen some reports and screenshots that show there around 800 MB of free RAM with KitKat, so I’m not confident if it will be a great update…
