    • Choose the firmware upgrade option in the companion and further check in T&C and start upgrade.
    • The download starts and installation will begin in some time.

    There is also an alternate way of updating Sony Xperia Smartphones and Tablet PC. It is infact a better and dedicated way of updating the Firmware for your Sony smartphones and Tablet. Simply download Sony Update Service, also known as SUS. Installation takes about 2 minutes. Once installed, connect the phone via USB Cable, select your Model from the list in SUS, and click OK.

    SUS will detect your phone and offer you two options, whether you just want to update the software OR you want to repair and update the software. If you have any problems with the device then select the second option or Simply select the first one and move ahead. Click Start and move away from PC. SUS will download, install the firmware and reboot the device on its own. You dont need to do anything. After reboot, configure the settings and check About Device option at the bottom of Settings. It should be running on the latest available software for your device model.
