Android 4.4.4 firmware (14.4.A.0.108) rolling for Xperia Z1 Compact; certified for Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra

Somewhat surprisingly, Sony Mobile has started to roll the Android 4.4.4 KitKat firmware update for the Xperia Z1 Compact. This comes to the handset in the form of build number 14.4.A.0.108.

The update is currently rolling to users in Russia, Italy and Indonesia. We don’t have a changelog right now, so if you’ve downloaded the update let us know your thoughts below.



This same build version (14.4.A.0.108) was also certified by the PTCRB website for the Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra. It doesn’t appear that the update is rolling to these handsets though.

You never know. Sony is aware that they have pretty serious problems with the 4.4.2 wakelock/batterydrain errors and a prospective fix was seen for the Z/ZL on PTCRB. I'd say there is a chance that they will just roll the fix into 4.4.4 and push that out.

I also bet they were on a deadline to get the 4.4.2 out ASAP to the whole Zx series, as it's a baseline requirement for the simultaneously launched Smartband SWR10. Likely wanted to maximize their potential install base size.

that firmware fix is 10.5.A.0.233 which already rolled out to xperia z austria 3 carrier. it wasn't a bug fix. no firmware has been certified yet till now other than that. and it's been a month still many users haven't got 4.4.2 update yet including me!

Nope not seeing it. They still haven't rolled out 4.4.2 properly yet so I had to flash an ftf.

If you want 4.4.4 on a Sony phone you better buy one that's not as old as the ZL, because Sony has no interest in supporting outdated products.
