    Thread Security updates over?

    I guess we are done for security updates. It has been right at 2 years. Sad thing is, this is still a great little phone. I am not in the mood to root and tinker with issues. I wished there was a stable ROM out there to use. I wished that LineageOS would pick this little jewel up. Oh, well. It...

    Thanks. Just to confirm, this is the "Customized DE", correct?

    Post 34.4.A.2.85 released

    Let me know how that goes. I am in the same boat as you with CE1. Was on UK but went to CE1 for "LTE", instead of "4G". Cosmetic, I know. Let me know how the DE goes and whether the data icon shows as "LTE", if you will. Cheers.

    Post oreo battery life on x compact

    My battery life went down once I got Oreo. "Phone Idle" uses way too much battery now. Apparently, the only real fix (that I have found) is to do a repair on the system which will wipe everything. I am not ready to do that yet. If anyone knows anything different to remedy this without a wipe...

    I looked back earlier in this thread and this "Topace" is a quality knockoff of the Nillkin/Kepuch case you link above. Cheers. del

    Post Why there are no updates for Customized CE1 version?

    CE1 update. 11/28/2017 FINALLY, a CE1 update! Sony is going to have to do better and have more timely updates with this region.

    Post Protective case for the X Compact?

    Honestly, I do not remember. All I can remember about the screen protector was that it was crap. I removed it after about 1 day. I typically do not use a screen protector. My screen is flawless too. I like the case though. Besides a few scratches, it has held up quite well after a year.

    Post Protective case for the X Compact?

    Got this case as it was recommended by someone in this thread a little over a year ago. The case is a little scratched, but when I take it off, the back of my phone is flawless. No scratches at all. http://a.co/7a25igQ

    Post Fingerprint reader working in US version (after flash)

    Was it stuck on the white SONY for that period? I only waited about 5-10 minutes. If so, I will try it again.

    Post Fingerprint reader working in US version (after flash)

    After multiple avenues, it is a wash. I tried a dirty flash with US 244 with system.sin from UK 238. Stuck at SONY logo. Went back to CE1 228 (LTE, 4 bars, fingerprint reader enabled). :( Might try more scenarios later. If anyone has anymore ideas to try, shoot.

    Post Fingerprint reader working in US version (after flash)

    OK. Thanks again. Cheers! I wonder. Instead of flashing US then the UK .sin, would it work to replace the US .sin with the UK .sin before creating the ftf.

    Post Fingerprint reader working in US version (after flash)

    Thank you much. Just to clarify, you flashed the "system_S1-SW-LIVE-D553-PID1-0006-MMC.sin", correct? Also, no issues with the dirty flash? I really do not want to set up all my apps again.

    Post Fingerprint reader working in US version (after flash)

    Can you give a detailed account of the procedure you used with example file names? For instance, did you use the 244 US then the 238 UK .sin? I think I understand what you are stating but I do not want to misconstrue anything. Much appreciation. del

    Post Does Xperia X Compact support: VoLTE, Band 12 and WiFi Calling on T-Mobile?

    It does not support VoLTE. The phone does but TMOb has not certified it to work on their network.

    Post Protective case for the X Compact?

    Love that case, however I use a magnetic mount in my car and do not want to glue a metal strip on the back of the actual phone. I wished they made the Devilcase with a back. :(

    Post Fingerprint reader working in US version (after flash)

    Nougat for CE1 Flashed Customized CE1 over Customized UK to get the "LTE" back. I know it is only cosmetic, but meh... Didn't have to reset anything. All settings apps were intact. About 11 PM Central time, Nougat was posted for CE1. OTA flash (took 30 minutes) and so far everything seems OK.

    I think there is a way to disable them through the adb shell. I recall doing something similar on my Z3 that didn't require root. I will look into it further and get back to you. If any other person has this knowledge, post away. ---------- Post added at 07:11 AM ---------- Previous post was...

    Has anyone tried the EE UK firmware? Supposedly, it already has the VoLTE enabled. Still not sure whether it would work on T-MOB USA.

    Post Protective case for the X Compact?

    This is actually a decent, low-priced, slimline case. It will do until something better and more proective comes along.

    Some say they have confirmed that Band 12 works however according to the site below, band 12 is not accessible if VoLTE is not functional. http://www.spectrumgateway.com/compatible-phones

    I am using the UK customized firmware. I am on T-Mobile US (Nashville, TN) and when I make/receive phone calls my data switches to 3G/HSPA+ during the call instead of utilizing 4G/LTE for both. Does anyone know of a workaround for TMOB? maybe an APN setting or additional APN? Anyone else using...

    Post [BUG] Screen Sensitivity Issue-Lag (4.0.4-4.1.x)

    This worked for me as well. I was having the issue where once I accessed the recent apps menu, the degraded sensitivity began. Once I tried SGS touchscreen booster, it seems thus far that my issues have subsided. YMMV

    Post 4.03 "Leaked“ Radios CDMA, LTE & Bootloader

    At work, mine was flawless, full bars and 45 down and 20 up. At home was between 1-2 bars but always in 4G...15ish down and 6-7 up. After flashing, at home I am dropping to to 3G and it never happened before. Going back to 4.02 radios to see if it returns to where it was... will post back.
