Default [BUG] Serious internal speaker bug in 101

I had spanish generic 569, and since they didn't update yet to 10.4.1.B.101 I decided to switch to a CE one that I found here:
http://xperiafirmware.com/8-firmware...xperia-z-c6603

The issues are:
-When I call someone I can not hear anything unless I activate the loudspeaker. This is not always happening and seems to be temporally fixed after a reboot.
-If anyone calls me, the loudspeaker is activated automatically when I pick the call (some says this is due to Google Chrome update)
-The proximity sensor that turns off the screen while talking is misbehaving

Of course I have tried again wiping everything in the flashtool, but didn't help.

Solution? I went back to the safe spanish generic 10.4.B.0.569 which they didn't updated yet to 101, maybe because they found this serious bug? I find it weird that they didn't adopted it yet

The bug has also been posted in other forums http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia...em/td-p/568927

Anyone else here can reproduce or solve it?

The loudspeaker activates randomly when I answer calls, but only from one specific contact. My earpiece works fine, however.
I'm on 10.4.B.0.569 Generic ES and I've found no solution to it. I just remember to deactivate the speaker phone when I answer calls from them.

I have done more research and yes, indeed it seems that google chrome is resposible of the auto loudspeaker mode and it can also happen in other firmwares or even phones.

NEVERTHELESS for me the issue of not being able to hear anything when you call if it is not in loudspeaker mode is a different issue that I can only reproduce in 101

Yes, that's why I posted that I have the same problem on 569 and there has already been a link posted saying it affects other devices.
