Today I got the lollipop update on Xperia Z1 C6902 in India.
Excited to experience the new update …
I updated my Xperia Z1 Compact to Android 5.0 Lollipop yesterday, April 13th. I had two issues with it. One I’ve solved, regarding how to switch off ringtone and let phone in vibration only mode. Another seems a bug to me: I can’t remove any app or widget icons, once they are on the desktop I tried to dropping them in the red X REMOVE bar above, but it doesn’t work. Any suggestions? Thank you.
how did u solved vibration problem
To FAB, just press one of the volume buttons, then tap on the bell (left of sound slider) and it will switch to Vibrate mode.
Thank you was looking for that 🙂
i m from Romania, but not appeared yet… :((
I just updated my z2 , and to cure the no sound or vibration shortcut I downloaded an app for this and it works just as good .
I just upgraded to the 5.0.2 yesterday. I noticed that the ringer, wifi and mobile data widget are now missing from my desk top. I did some looking up but have not had any success finding and installing these widgets on my desk top. can anyone help?
