I know that it have to be my customization and I actually put my customization in there...

I see.

So, you have an older firmware than the one available online. But PC Companion or SEUS doesn't give you any update, is this what you mean?

If I'm right, then there are 2 options:
  1. the OTA check is always slower than PCC or SEUS (or my website) and it may take days before the phone notifies you.
  2. You have unlocked the bootloader or done some tricky stuff and therefore new updates are no more notified to you (check this page).

Yeah, you're right. I should have thought about it. Nice work btw. Clean, sleek, easy to use, gorgeous, Sony styled and other small things like the refresh button and a bookmark. It looks like it's so simple, nobody would use it, yet it looks great and makes the website complete and finished.

How you managed to check the firmware based on customization btw?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kind words!

Well, the core of my website is totally based from @Apollo89 work and his post listing all the Xperia Z firmwares. I just put a good looking wrapper around it.
