Default [Q] Weird app and firmware update

So I was using my phone when suddenly there're notifications about a dummy app and a firmware update 12.1.X.0.2205. The dummy app didn't do anything much went opened tho. Just XPERIA written all over the screen. As for the firmware update it uses X instead of A and build 2205 just make no sense. Furthermore it's 0.2205 which I suppose is kind of weird. Any of you received the same or it was just me? I've searched the whole forum searching for answers and I can't find any. Is it just Sony mistakenly released it or what?

And as for the firmware update. I tried every means to get it installed but the installation failed. Just asking because of curiosity tho.

It might have been a mysterious force gave me superpowers through a weird phone update and I cant access it until the time comes but oh well that's just me and my imagination

You are running a Custom ROM I believe? So perhaps that is the issue

Oh yeah and one more thing. Is there any possibilities that this is a sign that Sony's making a kit kat build? Since that update I received was weird and all. I had a tiniest hope in that

Or maybe it's just my update centre is bugged and all

Nah I wouldn't say it's the same as there is no announcement of a new firmware by Sony. The link was for .205 and I've updated mine.

A little off-topic tho hahah.
About the notification bar I use Serajr systemUI mod and Serajr Xperia Xposed (KK) to get the gaussian blur effect
