i have a doubt, is it safe to update to oficial kit kat now that is online? i have read that it has a lot of problems, with apps, wifi, signal, txt messaging and that some apps are not going to work well with my unlocked xperia z1.

im on official 4.3 jelly bean, and my z1 works fine, i dont want to have all those troubles with my phone.

or is it safe to offficial update now ?

thanks !

Well the major problem that it has is the sd write issue
U can't use any other apps that require access to sd card except stock file manager
So no es file manager
You would have to root it to fix it

I don't know but you should get updates

Also if you don't get then you have many devs who will give you updates with custom roms like cyanogenmod

thanks, im updating right now.
also i have read in some forums that the camera imprvements are not going to come in future updates, cuz are the "improvements" with z2, so it makes sense. i think i will have to root my z1 and install them. i saw them here in xda.

also i read that if i root my z1 i will lose my x reality engine, and i dont want that BUT i also read here on XDA that it can be installed as a APK.

thanks !
