Like i said above. I wanted to update to 32.3.A.0.376 by using Xperia Companion but holding Volume Down while plugging in the USB doesnt do anything at all. Is it not working with the Z5 Compact or am i doing something wrong?

Your device must be powered off before doing so. Wait a bit, when it works the Notification LED is shinning.

I found out what was the problem. I used an usb3 port which doesnt work for it, sadly its not mentioned anywhere which made it hard to find out what caused the problem. If anybody else got that problem, try to change your USB port.

I also had serious connection problems between my (linux) computer (having only USB 3 ports) and the z5c running the 1st version android 7 (32.3.A.0.372). I was not able to flash any rom. Later I was not able to connect to Xperia Companion (from VirtualBox).

But my friends windows PC did work, so he was able to recover it quickly with Xperia Companion - and here comes the catch - using a USB 3 port. :cyclops:

FlashTool did not connect well on my linux laptop to the z5c @ 32.3.A.0.372 , but after upgrading to 32.3.A.0.376 it seems it does.
What version android do/did you run?
