    Hi Anurag,

    Just got stuck with Sony booting logo while flashing with c6603 5.0.2

    Can you help me with your advise

    its TIM verient.

    Thanks in advance.

    • Anurag Kumar May 23, 2015 at 1:18 pm - Reply

      Did you try flashing again? With full wipe of data ? Did you enable USB-Debugging and you do have XZ drivers installed on your PC. If done all then try another ftf.

      Yes, it worked for me 🙂 But the firmwares (mentioned above) will change your device model i.e, c6602.

    I saw that the update for c6602 went live in bangladesh, asia and taiwan. I think adia includes india.Is the update dependent on network service providers. Please clarify.

  21. vijay May 23, 2015 at 7:49 am - Reply

    Lollipop update is rolling out for xperia z in taiwan, bangladesh and some other asian countries. Will it depends on the network operator to release the update? I live in bangalore, india. Please clarify

    • Anurag Kumar May 23, 2015 at 1:17 pm - Reply

      No it depends on Sony only to release the update. Updates hit different countries at different time. No ETA for arrival in India yet.
