At last, I got a notification on my Z1 about the KitKat update being ready. Did anybody else receive this yet.

Think I'll hold off for a while though, since after flashing the French FTF have downgraded to 4.3 because of some problems I was having with dialler (when trying to make a credit card payment by phone, the pressed key was registering twice or more times).

Please let me know if you install this on your phone as to whether bug free.

Thanks.

Hi Guys and Gals,

Seems that I may have been a bit premature in announcing the UK Unbranded Xperia Z1's availability over FOTA.

The FTF that I used to downgrade to 4.3 was C903_14.2.A.1.136_Global-LTE_1277-2880_R1B, consequently the update notification for KitKat that I received is probably for the 'Global' version as well.

The confusing thing for me is that the 'Global' version has been out for weeks and my downgrade to 4.3 has been running for weeks also, but yet I only received the upgrade notification yesterday.

But I guess tha'ts by the by, so guys and gals, apologies for getting your hopes up, and back to the long wait for our UK update.

I don't want to be the first to jump! Although using Sony Xperia KitKat on the Tablet Z2 for a few days has made me warm to it somewhat.

I wonder if it's the same build, or if it has any updates.

It'll be the same build though.

Think I'll bite the bullet and do the upgrade tomorrow afternoon. Can't risk it now , since at work in the morning so need a fully functioning phone and knowing me and sods law.

Will report back once updated, but maybe someone else will get there before me and feedback.

OP flashed a french ftf not UK unbranded, that's most likely why he got update notification.

Nothing for me. Think it might have been a false alarm, perhaps one of the bug fix otas that's kicking around

Carrier branded, presumably. Vodafone?
