Chinese Xperia Z1 Compact M51w got 14.2.A.1.146 firmware update

Xperia Z1 Compact D5503 got its first android 4.3 14.2.A.1.142 firmware update yesterday which seems only a minor bug fixing update though no specific changelog is spotted so far from any user. Same 14.2.A.1.142 firmware is also expected to hit Xperia Z1 and Xperia Z Ultra but chances are very low as we are expecting direct android 4.4.2 KitKat 14.3.A.x.xxx firmware to roll on these two devices.

Just now Chinese Xperia Z1 Compact M51w which is yet not available for sale, saw Android 4.3 14.2.A.1.146 firmware update. As when it will be available for sale, users will be getting this update hopefully or which ever update is available then.

Sony updates Album App to version 5.4.A.0.12 – Android KitKat Support

Sony Mobile has just updated one of their media app, Album app is updated to new version 5.4.A.0.12 from previous 5.3.A.0.24 version. This new update moves album app from version 5.3.A to 5.4.A which means considerable changes in the app. At present Album app version 5.4.A.0.12 is confirmed rolling on Xperia Z series and Xperia L across many nations.

Album app version 5.4.A.0.12 brings android 4.4 KitKat Support as mentioned in the changelog which is very amusing right now, why would Sony mention android 4.4 KitKat stuff in the changelog of media app update. Well if you see clearly in screenshots below in one the screenshot taken by Sony itself, all icons in status bar are white in color which is a standard KitKat feature of Android.

NFC Bug fixing Xperia S,SL Jelly Bean Update coming in Week 28 of July 2013

Main bugs in Xperia S, SL Jelly Bean  6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 firmware

  • 1080p full HD resolution video capture lags a lot, though 720p HD Video mode is working fine.
  • Battery Drain and Heating is a serious issue. Battery is draining at 2x speed as compared to ICS for many users. Phone gets heats up to 45-48C in 15 minutes of continuous usage. Though official support claiming that battery stabilizes after a  week but nothing like that happened.
  • 2G Mobile Data connectivity issue. On 2G mode mobile data runs very slow, we are able to connect to internet but no able to download or surf anything. Error 927 pops up on Google Play disallowing us to download anything.
  • Wi-Fi issues, people are not able to connect over Wi-Fi. Either the Wi-Fi don’t detect any router of if it does you are not able to connect over it. Though Wi-Fi issue resolved for us after doing factory data reset.

Well in case we want to tell you that Sony Xperia Support has looked to “2G Mobile Data connectivity issue” and it is hopefully fixed in upcoming updates as we can by seeing the response from official Sony Xperia Support member.

2G Mobile Data connectivity issue Bug Fixing update on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware Xperia S

Another minor bug is that, whenever battery is low to 14%, Xperia S, SL users on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 firmware gets a notification of “Switch to Stamina Mode for power management” but actually Xperia S and SL doesn’t have any Stamina Mode. So it’s a minor bug, warning should be switching on to “Extended battery Mode”.

Well Sony Xperia Support made it clear that Xperia S and SL on Jelly Bean will not be supporting Stamina Mode ever confirmed.

No Stamian Mode for Xperia S and SL on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 firmware Confirmed.

As per now many answers have been cleared by these statements by official Sony Xperia Support. Well we are now looking forward to 28 week of July for the upcoming update and seeing which bugs will be fixed or not.

If you have updated to Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.211 firmware please do let us know which bugs you are facing mentioning your  region and phone in the comments, it will help us to identify the bugs and then they can be reported over to official support.

It surely depicts the launch of new Xperia product. No name has been mentioned but by looking at the pic it is speculated as Xperia Z Ultra or Xperia ZU Togari. This will be the first product in the phablet range from Sony which will be put against Samsung Note 3. Till now it’s just a rumor only. A few days ago we saw a press invite of Sony in the Germany which will be held on 25 June and Xperia Z Ultra pic leaked with cat on top with some specifications.

By looking at the photo leaked above, it is seen that the device or Xperia Z Ultra is definitely a phablet, with power button at side, earphone jack, volume up and down buttons just similar to Xperia Z. Camera dedicated button is also there at the bottom side. It looks very thin from side, we posted it’s dimension as 179.2 x 92 x 6.5mm. An uncertainty is there on the water and dust resistant capability of this phablet as you noticed that earphone jack is not covered up, it’s open.

On 30 May, Sony Xperia News Tweeted that Jelly Bean for Xperia Ion will follow as soon as Jelly Bean for Xperia S, SL and Acro S is rolled out, it has been rolled out but still Xperia Ion users didn’t see any Jelly Bean firmware rolling out.

It seems that Sony planned to launch the same Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware for Xperia Ion also but when so many Xperia S users reported bugs in it, they may have delayed its rolling date to get a better update in the form of Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware.

Bugs in Jelly Bean firmware 6.2.B.0.200 firmware for Xperia S, SL, Acro S

  • Wi-Fi bug connectivity issue – Wi-Fi after Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware update stopped working. It either don’t detect or if detected it doesn’t connect to internet means we are not able to surf internet or download anything.

  • Battery drain issues – After Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware update, battery drain issue issue arose. Now battery is draining at 2x rate as compared to ICS. Before only 9-10% battery used to drain after listening to songs on headset for 2 hours on ICS but now on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware, around 10% battery drain in 1 hour listening to songs.
  • No STAMINA Mode – Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware update for Xperia S, SL, Acro S had “Extended battery mode” only but when battery reaches 14%, phone shows warning of “switching to Battery Stamina Mode”. What does that mean actually ? Sony missed Stamina mode so why phone is showing warning for that.

  • 1080P HD video capture lag – While capturing 1080p full HD video in Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware, the video capturing lags so much. Fps for 1080p videos have been reduced now. Poor quality of videos are captured.

  • Video capturing in 1080p is lagging very badly 🙁 The video capturing frame is not steady at all. Auto-focus is very bad in video capturing.  Frame rate reduced to 18frames /second. Data rate and total bit rate also reduced. Check the comparison of 1080p HD videos in Xperia SL Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware and Android 4.0.4 ICS firmware

Poor Quality of 1080p HD Videos in Xperia SL LT26ii 6.2.B.0.200 jelly bean firmware

  • Battery DRAIN is very severe on my Xperia SL LT26ii. Very bad it is actually.
  • As soon as I updated Xperia SL, now Wi-Fi connects but not able to surf neither any downloading is starting, the same case is there with the mobile data. Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware has very bad CONNECTIVITY ISSUES 🙁

How to Solve Wi-Fi and Mobile Data Connectivity Problem / Issue in Xperia S, SL , Acro S Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware ?

As I mentioned above about the Wi-Fi connectivity and mobile data connectivity issue in the firmware update, here is a solution. What you are facing actually is this that Wi-Fi connects but you are not able to surf anything and same is the case with mobile data. I also got the Error 927 in Google Play when I was updating any app via connecting Wi-Fi and mobile data. Also tried downloading the internet and MMS settings for the phone but unable to do so. After re-updating the software 3 times via SUS I found no improvement in the connectivity issues. What did I do ? I repaired my Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware again on Xperia SL LT26ii (India region) again by PC Companion. And it has solved my problem. Now my Xperia SL Connects very smoothly with the Wi-Fi and mobile data. Though the mobile data speed is a bit slow in both 2G and 3G mode, it may be due to any firmware bug. Lag in 1080p video capturing has also been resolved to greater extent but it is there still 🙁 Try repairing you Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware on your phone via PC Companion and see if the issue is still there if you still see the issue do let us know.

How to Solve Error unfortunetly coms.google.process.gapps has stopped working in Xperia S, SL , Acro S Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware ?

I am very often getting this error “unfortunetly coms.google.process.gapps has stopped working” on my Xperia SL after the Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 update so to resolve this got to settings > Apps > All apps > Tap on menu button > Choose “Reset App preferences” > Click on Reset Apps, now reboot your phone again. The issue should have been resolved now 🙂 If you have got the update in your region, please post your reviews in the comment section regarding this update. Has Sony kept its promise in rolling out jelly bean for Xperia S or it’s a crap update with no features, please drop your comments 🙂 Do let us know if you are facing any problems in this firmware ,we will try to sort it out… Those who have already updated their Xperia S and Xperia SL, do get back to us with you review on this jelly bean firmware, are you satisfied ?
