Is it out in United States???
Not yet in US.
I’m from India.. Can I update my D6503 Z2 with this ftf file for Baltic?
yes you can mate, but you will get additional lte/4g settings in mobile network which won’t work.
I have a device which supports lte.. So would that be a problem? And I’m a beginner with these flashing can u please tell me how to flash this into my device too.. A step by step guide.. TIA
then you can flash it. See there is a link given itself in the post above download link where step by step detailed tutorial is given….
It is for Xperia Z1, same steps goes for all 2013 2014 2015 Xperia devices.
Download latest flashtool for windows/mac from here – http://www.flashtool.net/index.php
Follow the steps from my link.
There would a step come where it will ask you to wipe the full data of your phone, which one must do…so backup all your content first.
Can I use this on D6502 variant? And my device D6503 is not bootloader unloacked.. Is there any need to do that
works on unlocked bootloader also.
You can use in D6502 but it will give you additional LTE settings which won’t work. Using it or not is your choice.
when you say “t will give you additional LTE settings which won’t work. ” that mean D6502 model won’t be able to use 3g or h+ with this rom?
LTE means 4g mate, you won’t able to use 4g on D6502 because it is not meant for 4G, it can only use till 3G. Yes you can use 3G or HSPA+ after flashing this rom. But flashing or not is your choice only.
Flashing LTR ROM just give you additional settings which is of no use practically.
hello, is this ROM is official for sony Z2 D6503 , works good ?
