Question [Q] How to know if a new official firmware is released

Hi,
I'm kind of lost right now, there's an update 14.2.A.1.136, that started rolling out in 30/01/2014, but until now my phone still on 14.2.A.0.290.
I just want to know if there's a way to test if an update is available in my country or not.

Second question is, if i root my phone, i can have the official updates ?

Well, that was an obvious answer, that's the main problem, pc companion doesn't show that i can update, i tried sony update service, but nothing.

It wasn't my question, i asked about the availability of the update in my country.

It was an obvious answer because it the correct answer. If PCCompanion does not give you an update then your country/carrier has not received the update yet.

"How to know if a new official firmware is released?" The answer is, you see it on PCCompanion.

Not always. Try PC companion, SUS and ota. I have run into instances where PC companion shows nothing but SUS updates the device.

Many many thanks !!!! this is the answer i wanted, btw, no carrier here (Morocco) has the Xperia Z1, a friend of mine bough it, all i remember is that it had a lot of vodafone stuff in it, but it did updates until the 14.2.A.0.290, so i guess it's related to its origin country.
