NEW Sony Walkman Z Series mini review!!! - Page 227

post #3391 of 3971

For anyone without any way to update their NA model to ICS, enjoy:

No, they were not of any help.  Luckily I stumbled upon the link, 0001 = USA

 

Those with volume caps: You can always flash with 0001 biggrin.gif

 

Let us know if you're enjoying capped free audio after the flash :D

Why do I have this recollection that the device won't allow you to use firmware meant for different versions of the device? Was that earlier in this thread or elsewhere?
post #3393 of 3971

I don't think you can flash it with a different version other than the one it was meant for. I've tried flashing the NA version on the EU version walkman z I had and it didn't work. Doesn't even recognize it.

You can, when I get the free time I'll study the flasher software and firmware.  So far it appears that all devices are flashed with the same firmware image.

 

The only things that change are those marked by the region identifiers.  Volume capping and a few locale modifications are the end result.

 

The hardware drivers, applications, etc are all exactly the same.

There's this "RegionProvider" app. Try disabling it and then flashing the firmware.

Abhisheak to the rescue!!!
We need ICS root and until now I've tried all methods including bin4ry's exploit, but none seems to work.

Please help!! Want root on this device so badly.
This device can be so much more, only if we had root.

What am I supposed to do where it says "Choose apply update from external source"? (Z has built-in storage, no SD card) Plus, we dont have an option to "update" when we boot into recovery.

post #3402 of 3971
