Special features:

In the following guide I suggest you use an external SDCard but that's just good practice, you can use your internal storage or even an USB OTG storage device in TWRP if you like to install, that's no problem!... If you are modding and the likes, best is to have an external sdcard, just for safeties sake.

If you are unable to download torrent files directly, have http://zbigz.com/ do it for you!

How to update to 14.3.A.0.757:
  1. Files (Find them on the DevDB Download tab!):
    • For C6902: Download C6902_14.3.A.0.757.flashable.zip (1004MB) and C6902_14.3.A.0.757_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    • For C6903: Download C6903_14.3.A.0.757.flashable.zip (893MB) and C6903_14.3.A.0.757_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    • For C6906: Download C6906_14.3.A.0.757.flashable.zip (952MB) and C6906_14.3.A.0.757_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    • For C6943: Download C6943_14.3.A.0.757.flashable.zip (985MB) and C6943_14.3.A.0.757_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    Save them somewhere you remember;
  2. Put 'C69XX_14.3.A.0.757.flashable.zip' on (the external) SDcard1;
  3. Put 'C69XX_14.3.A.0.757_Stripped.ftf' inside the Flashtool/firmwares folder;
  4. Create a backup of your phone in TWRP and don't forget to backup the contents of 'SDCard' (the internal storage!);
  5. Flash 'C69XX_14.3.A.0.757.flashable.zip' in TWRP (if you notice your phone reboot during the update process, update to the latest XZDualRecovery and try again);
    NOTE: do not reboot but go back to the main menu, then go to reboot->power off;
  6. Flash everything in 'C69XX_14.3.A.0.757_Stripped.ftf' using flashtool;
  7. Reboot to system.

The first boot will be slow and after some time at the boot animation you will see Android start optimizing the apps on your phone.

Enjoy! :laugh:

Want to De-ODEX your ROM?
@RyokoN has kindly provided a flashable package for this purpose, download it here (MEGA Download). Make sure you wipe the DALVIK-CACHE after you flash it.

@RHBH has also created a deodex package and will do so for all variant releases. Check out his thread here.

Need some help?
@shem2409 has made a video guide to aid you in the update process:
Thanks buddy, great work, as always! :)

Known XZDualRecovery Issues:
Busybox Updater/Installer: If you have XZDualRecovery installed, un-install any Busybox updating app/tool as most if not all of them will install a version of busybox which does not support the lzma compression applets XZDualRecovery depends on. The version installed together with XZDualRecovery is very stable and I have yet to hear anyone complain about it's stability.

How to report errors:
Please, before shouting out "It doesn't work!!1!" or "I lost root!" or even "My phone reboots when remounting /system RW!!" try the following:
  • Restore any JB 4.2.2 FTF using any means you are familiar with so you can try again.
  • Root it using any means you are familiar with.
  • Install XZDualRecovery;
  • Update to 14.2.A.1.136;
  • Then try to update again using TWRP.
  • If it still fails something from there on: LOGS!!.
    NOTE: The important ones can be found in /cache/recovery and in /sdcard1/XZDualRecovery, pack them up and send them to me or attach them to your bug report.

Thank you :)

I have few questions:
Currently I have C6903 Xperia Z1
4.2.2 (JB) with XZ-lockeddualrecovery2.7.75 and locked bootloader

1. There is no way to update directly from rooted 14.1.G.2.257 to 14.3.A.0.757? If not what is order updates? .290 >> .136 >> .681?
2. Can I use this DualRecovery: Z1-lockeddualrecovery2.7.115-BETA.installer.zip (10.18MB) or i need another version?
3. I must first uninstall my old recovery and after that install new version?

Don't complicate things Mr.

You're already rooted, with recovery. That's all that matters. You don't need to uninstall recovery and all that.

This is how I did mine.

Backup your Internet memory onto your pc or onto your ext sd card. (wiping it is safer for me for 100% no causes of problems).

Download the latest which is. 757
Place in your ext sd card.

Download the stripped FTF and place in the firmware folder of flashtool
(update flashtool from 0.9.13 to 0.9.15 please as it will give your error if you use the old one).

Boot your .290 to recovery, wipe everything except your external sd card.

Install. 757 and don't reboot yet. Just power off.

Go to flashtool and flash the stripped FTF.

Boot and enjoy.

But NUT give higher requirements... I Think that I have too old recovery for upgrade to KK roms. I have 75, NUT Said 90 or newer...

Boot your .290 to recovery, wipe everything except your external sd card.

Currently I have 257. Should i upgrade first to 290?

Just install the newest recovery over your old one. It's ok.

You don't have to upgrade to 290 first. Just download the above files and directly upgrade to 757.

Well if that's what it states, it's fairly the easiest thing to do. Update to 90 by downloading the flasheable one.

Flash it, reboot back to recovery and follow the process to update to 757

Flashing was ok.
Spotting the apos I had deleted was easy: I made a backup with titanium before flashing, so when launching again titanium after flashing, it lists on top all apps with no backups.
Now I am restoring all backups: there are some com.android.xyz apps that seems have been removed, maybe just newer versions in this update?

    Yeah hitting F5 every 5 minutes LOL

    Well, stop hitting it, check my downloads page, the files are there, I just didn't have time to do the topic yet. :highfive:

    FYI, I managed to create my own version of pre-rooted at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2706011

    BUT BE WARN, I have not personally test them (I need to travel in a couple of hours) if so may not work. I won't have time to test or fix until next week so make sure you have a backup before trying if you dare to try.

    Else please wait for NUTS' version. Mine was created using his guide.

    I will prepare the files tomorrow, but as 108 is rootable using the easyroottool I'm in no hurry just yet...

    It will get done though :)

    @[NUT] does this mean you will never ever again or there's still hope in case of a major release?

    Of course the next major release will see an update from me.

    I view 761 as a fixed up branded customization release. I only release (mostly)generic packages, the fixes are too small and low in numbers, so it's too much of a hassle to de-brand it with the risk it won't work as intended anymore, for so little gain.
