Default C6506: 4.4.4

This thread is for the C6506 users since C6506 is usually the last to get the updates lol.... If you have gotten the 4.4.4 update post where your located and when you received it.

Nothing out for me yet; OTA or PC companion

Location: Canada

Service: Rogers
Sony Xperia ZL (C6506) (ROGERS)

Also, do I need .230 OS to get .283 update or will it show the latest regardless ? Just wondering since I choose to stick with 4.3 due to all the problem

I know, I'm also on Telcel Mexico and I left their ftf since 4.4.2

Of course you can flash c6503 FTF, just be sure you exclude TA and Baseband. The system is the same, just the eLabel would show your XZL as a c6503 instead of c6506

Unhappy Nothing on generic 6506

I am also on Rogers in Canada, but when I got my ZL back rom a Sony Repair, it was the generic software, not the Rogers bloated version.

Anyway, I as still showing 10.5.A.0.230 as the latest version.

I would like to keep th C6506 / generic version but just might jupm to 6503 to update sooner.

Even with wake lock killer I havs some bad battery days and I am getting sick and tired of that.

OP thank for starting this thread.

Just curious as I also have a C6506, but what would happen if I flashed to a C6503 version of the 10.5.1.A.0.283 firmware?

I'm using C6503 10.5.1.A.0.283 on my C6506, and I have no problems at all, nor before when I was using 4.4 and 4.4.2 C6503 FTF while C6506 got its release.

BTW, up until now, battery life seems the same, it's just that Google Play Services is not draining battery anymore, don't know what is, Top in battery usage is "Android OS".

Hmm..so if I flash 10.5.1.A.0.283 to my C6506, do I lose all my apps/settings/etc, and I'll have to reinstall everything?

lol..sounds like they just moved battery usage from play services to android OS..are there still the overheating problems tho?
