    No update for xperia z2 D6503 yet in india

    • Anurag Kumar April 7, 2015 at 9:17 pm - Reply

      Sony launched D6503 in India, I don’t think so. I guess you are using imported handset…Sony launched D6502 in India as far as I know.

        Ok. Then when will update D6503 in india.

        • Anurag Kumar April 7, 2015 at 10:26 pm - Reply

          from customization info first find out from which region your device came, then only one can predict.

    Finally Updated my xperia z2 (D6502) to lollipop (5.0.2)[India]
    The new lollipop is amazing.

  11. Subhi Mahfouz April 8, 2015 at 1:40 pm - Reply

    Do you recommend a factory reset after doing the lollipop update for my Z2?

    • Anurag Kumar April 8, 2015 at 4:14 pm - Reply

      factory rest is always good if you are facing some troubles. I haven’t done on my Z2 yet, will wait for a few days to identify bugs then only I will do.

    How is the status bar? I’ve flashed Baltic firmware and status bar gets theme-color in apps like Whatsapp or Google Chrome, that was ugly and annoying

    Hi Mr Anurag ???how can Root this new android 5.0.2
    modal no. D6502 build no 23.1.a.0.690 plz help

    • Anurag Kumar April 8, 2015 at 5:13 pm - Reply

      right now there is no direct method for root available. You need to flash the pre-rooted rom zip file via recovery to get root.

    My xperia Z2 is not showing any update yet ? Even the PC companion is not showing update.

    Also, I have a problem sometimes when I closes an app, a full screen ads show up in my phone and nothing else.
    It is not with a particular app and is very random when its gonna come. But it comes like 1-2times in3-4 days.

    Only basic officials apps are installed like whatsapp facebook. I am not able to find solution. Please help.

    One more thing, when i unlock my device, first it shows black background on home screen and then the wallpaper loads, is it common or my device is having a problem ?

        are you faceing any problem with this update ? i hear about battery charging problem and x reality not working problem.

        • Anurag Kumar April 13, 2015 at 7:44 pm - Reply

          Battery is not good, mult-tasking and HSPA/4F takes away battery. It heats. X-Reality, I am missing it, it is not working in Album app. Animations are slow.

            I’m using xperia z2 D6502 (india)
            My problem is I got an update notification for lollipop and started to update via pc but I could not do so because of power failure (during installing the update on pc)
            Later after few hours in could not see the update notification on mobile and in pc it was displaying that you’re phone is already updated ( on sony pc companion)
            Anybody please help me

          • Anurag Kumar April 13, 2015 at 10:25 pm -

            Sony has removed Z2 Lollipop update in India from their servers for the time being that’s why you are not seeing any notification for the time being.
            It should be released soon.
            No ETA yet.
