Hi all,

After rooting and installing CWM recovery I see that the Application Software version differs from the File System version - 9.2.A.0.295 vs 9.2.A.1.210. Is this normal? I have updated the phone through Sony PC Companion as the OTA was failing (had to lock the bootloader). Now I'm getting OTA notifications about the 1.210 version, which I already have. It's not a big deal, I can force stop it, but I am concerned about the version differences.
The phone is Xperia V.
I can share more details, if needed.

Found the issue - I was rooting the phone and installing CWM recovery. After installing the recovery, which included flashing custom kernel.elf in order to install the SuperSu app, and re-flashing the stock kernel.elf, the issue occurred again. Looks like the stock kernel.elf is not up to date, causing the system to think that there is a new FW version and popping up in OTA as a reminder to update. Case closed
