Sony recently went online with a new firmware update (version 17.1.2.A.0.323) based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Xperia Z2 (D6503) devices on Vodafone network in several countries including Germany, United Kingdom and Spain. The FTF file for this update is now available and can be download through the direct download links given below in this article.
This update doesn’t come with any changelog so you can expect the usual “performance and stability enhancements”. However, users who have already got the update report the addition of a new video button (see screenshot below) cropping up during a call which – quite amusingly – does nothing at all!
