Re: Z3 Lollipop

So maybe this week will be the week?

 

I won't anticipate it, but if it gets pushed out this week I'll gladly accept it.

 

Also why is this topic marked as solved? The update isn't out yet.

Re: Z3 Lollipop

This is exactly what Rogers did with the updates for my previous phone, the Motorola Razr HD.  They promised updates, then pushed it back over and over and over again.  It ended up being 7 months from the first update going out to some Razr HDs until the actual update being released for Rogers.   Sony did release their update a couple weeks later than they originally intended, but this delay is the major issue with cell phone service providers having anything to do with phone software.  All phones should be sold with manufacturer's software only, and customers given incentives to install the software for their provider, or not, but not held hostage on updates until the provider gets around to it.

Re: Z3 Lollipop

It does take a while when the phone is purchased under a carrier.  I have an unlocked Z3 and a friend has a Z3 under Rogers.  While my device got the 5.0 update 3 days after Sony released the OTA, my friend got tired of waiting and asked me if there's a way to get around.  thus, I installed a generic/unbranded firmware on the device (not recommended).

Re: Z3 Lollipop

I'm just going to wait, I have a feeling installing a generic unbranded version will be more a hassle in the long run. It is unfortunate we all have to wait so long but I'm sure they are making sure all the bugs are worked out first. Hopefully next week? Come on Rogers you can do it!!
