Get Your Xperia Device’s Firmware Up to Date with XperiFirm

Being able to run an updated version of Android is probably one of the most important things that we look for when it comes to Android devices. This is exemplified in the countless updates we feature here on the XDA Portal every time there is an indication, a leak, and release of new firmware of the major devices in the Android world, making sure you get to enjoy the newest features, bug fixes, and more as early as possible.

There are also specific tools available to help keep your device on track. And since this is a development-oriented site, one of the members of our community created such a utility for Sony devices called Xperifirm. Developed by XDA Forum Member IaguCool, Xperifirm is a tool that allows you to check for and download the most current and up to date official Android firmwares for every single Sony and Sony Ericsson Xperia Device. Xperifirm pulls up every single regional variant of firmware available for your device, and displays each one in a logical and easy to navigate interface.

Xperifirm currently runs only on PCs running Windows XP SP2 and newer at the moment, and requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or newer. You also need to have either Flashtool or Java Runtime Environment installed. And for users of Windows 8 and 8.1, you’ll need to download an extra ZIP package in order to run Xperifirm.

If you would like to give Xperifirm a go, be sure to head over to the Xperifirm tool thread to get started.

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
