desperately I am looking for a solution for a kind of very stupid and annoying problem:
I bought my Sony z1 compact in China. Model version: M51, Also called "colorful" in China
This Phone has a for China modified Android version installed. Nothing related to google works.
Well, sure the search engine in the browser. But I need the calendar, play store, etc.
Now I am thinking, has anybody experience with this device? ( only find posts to D5503)
Would it be possible to just update it with an international version? (Android 4.4 firmware 14.3.A.0.681)
Do i need to root, unlock Bootloader, or should a "normal update" work was well?
Or any other suggestions how to proceed?
I come the Apple world, where a jailbreak is one download and one click, I rooted a Xiaomi 2s with some small difficulties, but this looks way more complicated with this phone.... So any help would be appreciated..
