Sony NWZ-F806 mini review (& F-series player reviews / impressions / discussion) - Page 74

post #1096 of 1977

from what I can grasp:

 

probably your Fs are either already updated or partially updated because you've got the current kernel version.

 

don't ask me anything technical because i don't understand either.

 

my opinion: F is a half-baked product, sound quality is good enough, but there are some minor bugs left, this is one of it.

 

....Still pissed off by the hissing while the screen is on

No, first time tried and it worked. I just went into Settings-About-System Update-Check For Update, found the update, and it downloaded over wifi and then rebooted to install. I had plenty of space free on device, and it had about 90% charge. Thought it might force me to connect to charger like Samsung does, but didn't have to in the end.

Just thought I'd post a success story since some of you are having difficulties, in case it might just be a specific scenario causing the problem.

ensure your album art is .jpg only and properly embedded in each file. i use itunes for that. tip: the 'get album art' option in itunes does not fully embed it. once you have 'got' the art file, you'll need to copy the album art, hit 'clear downloaded artwork' and then paste the art in.

purk & turokrocks--

 

Perhaps you two (and anyone who has one refusing to run update) should demand Sony send you replacements. I mean seriously, this constitutes a defect no doubt.... Being able to run standard updates is certainly within the normal realm of operation for this device! Make them send you guys updated ones, and upon receipt send them back your current defective units! Maybe that will help motivate Sony to make more reliable product...

As I read on XDA-developers, people with Error Code 11 on their Sony android devices say it is a region error code, can be the case ?

i too hope this is the case. but someone tried using a firmware from Asia Pacific and the firmware can't detect his F, telling him to connect the device...

 

 

 

 maybe i should sell this and buy a 32gb red walkman Z instead haha

I'm on holidays so somewhat tied up. Otherwise someone here may want to scan the Japanese forums to see if they have problems with this error code - it really wouldn't surprise me if there was some kind of local region thing going on here. Note that the 64GBs were meant to be for local Japan use only anyway and through grey market the 64GBs are sold overseas.

i can try checking but i dont know whats sony's official forums. i think its not popular there or something, haha

 

edit: just tried over wifi update. no good. i tried using wifi since it is sure to use the firmware that my F supposed to be using. if this doesnt go to well, ill just sell it and get a Z haha.. i still like the Z sound better because most (if not, all) of my headphones are somewhat bass-lean to others
