How To Update Sony Xperia M To Latest Android 4.3 Jellybean 15.4.A.1.9 Firmware

Sony Xperia M is an awesome smartphone with a 1 GHz dual core CPU and powerful Adreno 305 GPU. Recently Xperia M has received a latest system update with build number 15.4.A.1.9. The android version is still 4.3 Jellybean. But the 15.4.A.1.9 firmware comes with some bug fixes. As I have previously told about the bugs in Sony Xperia M running on android 4.3 15.4.A.0.23 firmware. There were three bugs in total that are Google Now doesn’t work with long press home button, themes can’t be downloaded from Sony select and empty live wallpaper bug. You can read more about Xperia M bugs here.

The new update 15.4.A.1.9 comes with these bug fixes and performance enhancements and also battery drain bug is also fixed. So if you have Sony Xperia M and want to update it to make it bug and lag free then you are at right place. So lets start.

Warning: Currently users of Xperia M are facing an update problem via PC companion and Sony Update Service in which the firmware download gets stuck at 99% and shows 16 hours 34 minutes remaining. I would suggest you not to use Sony PC companion or Sony Update Service (SUS) to update Xperia M unless you receive OTA notification on your phone otherwise update will get stuck at 99% permanently and will your 2 GB of internet data will be wasted.
