[FTF] Xperia Z (C6603) 10.3.1.A.1.10 Orange FR (BLOAT!)
Xperia Z (C6603) 10.3.1.A.1.10 Orange FR (With free bloatware!)
(NFC logo enabled)
Changes from 10.3.1.A.0.X:
Reasons to update? None.
- Carrier name in empty notification bar (can be disabled)
- New default lockscreen wallpaper for Amber theme
- Metric ****ton of unremovable bloatware
- Pretty meh Orange boot animation/logo
Especially not if you don't have root. It doesn't feel any faster either.
I strongly believe this update was made at the request of Orange FR to include some carrier-specific updates. The low revision number (last number in the version) also suggests this, since it means there were only ten builds done in this branch.
(second image shows unremovable)
There are a few more common bloatware apps that I already removed. Most of the Orange apps can be disabled through Settings > Applications, luckily.
