Xperia Z (C6603) 10.3.1.A.1.10 Orange FR (With free bloatware!)
(NFC logo enabled)

Changes from 10.3.1.A.0.X:
  • Carrier name in empty notification bar (can be disabled)
  • New default lockscreen wallpaper for Amber theme
  • Metric ****ton of unremovable bloatware
  • Pretty meh Orange boot animation/logo

Reasons to update? None. Especially not if you don't have root. It doesn't feel any faster either.
I strongly believe this update was made at the request of Orange FR to include some carrier-specific updates. The low revision number (last number in the version) also suggests this, since it means there were only ten builds done in this branch.

Screenshots:


Bloatware: (second image shows unremovable)

There are a few more common bloatware apps that I already removed. Most of the Orange apps can be disabled through Settings > Applications, luckily.

Hello everybody.
I have uploaded my xperia z to this version of firmware, but I haven't root.
Now I have unlocked my device and want to know how can I root it.
Thank you in advanced.

Flash .423 kernel and root by using Doomlords latest root exploit, then flash back kernel from this firmware! Simple! Done!

    Wallpaper: http://db.tt/cJMiWf0B - it's one exclusively for Orange FR, not from Sony.
