I am encouraged by the folks talking about undervolting. Makes me think that this could be solved with some firmware adjustments.
Tried to do it. Not helping. Had the same suggestion from Sony guys.

Premature post maybe because I have not had the chance to test taking pictures in the sun, but I have run the software repair and one thing I can say is that the temperatures I am seeing now in the same situations as before are definitely lower than they were. Just picked up my phone which was sitting idle for the last half hour in a 20 degree room and the temperature of the CPU was 29C and the battery was 20C. A week ago those readings were 37C and 34 respectively. So there is improvement. Will test the camera outdoors tomorrow.
