Gear mentioned in this thread:
guys is the ICS update for walkman Z any good when playing flac natively????
seriously, im stuck between F and Z for months here.... because of flac!
i wanted the Z for the bigger screen to watch vids....
but is the f screen size (and quality) any good in watching movies?
Well, I am pleased to report that doing a factory reset after upgrading to ICS -as suggested by somebody in the Sony F thread - seems to have cured the buggy walkman app experienced by many after the update. All my 44/16 flacs now play normally without lag and the player is very responsive.
so, Update to ICS 1st then reset to factory mode?
btw, are there any diff with the Z when u upgrade to ICS ?
Update and factory reset, that's right
Little differences but ICS appears to be a more efficient and smoother OS, better apps management, much better browser and native flac support of course. Oh, and Sony Clear phase for the provided headphone but I found it to work very well with my PFE232 so worth a try.
Okay guys. Found a solution (somewhat) to the flac delay bug.
Go to the apps section, then media players, and then hit the 'clear data' button. Works for me and is wayyy better than doing a factory reset.
P.S. Do update your music database once you do this.
I still have the feeling the update broke few things and doing a clean install makes sense. The overall feel and usability is better and battery seems to have improved, but need more time to confirm. Plus, it only takes few minutes and reinstalling apps from the Play store is very straightforward.
