Did you notice any improvements/changes after the update?

Nothing yet. But i'm not really using it today.

post #1488 of 1977

can't find any changes either. Sony did give notice that the player will have some fix, but I didn't notice anything wrong even before the update was done :x

The Z also got updated. I'm feeling the sound has been improved a bit. Dunno about the F though.

Just to let NW-F800 (Japanese version) users know, it has been updated as well.  Just get it via Wi-Fi as usual.  I've noticed (and the improvement list in Japanese at start of update referred to bug fixes and smoother operation):

 

-smoother scrolling and transitions throughout (much improved, before I found it to be quite "jerky")

-Android "back" button from currently playing music to library much faster, and then immediately scrolling through library much faster (no "wait time")

-switching from "grid" to "list" view of music much faster

-faster wake up with "W" button

-sounds fantastic (OK, well, it already sounded fantastic so...but it really does sound like the volume has been boosted or the soundstage has widened a bit or both. I guess I should have listened to it right before the update.)

 

-Also will check to see if a problem I have is solved, using FLAC files, once in a while music will "skip" or "stop" for a fraction of a second, I suspect it's a background application running.  If it doesn't do it for a week or so then I'm guessing it must have been part of the bug fix.

My earlier feedback on distorted sound on upper bass fixed with this update, no more distorted sound found on bass and treble.

Also app error auto closed seem fixed.
post #1492 of 1977

I used to get the app error auto close lots before the upgrade and haven't had one since and it does seem a little smoother operation wise.

post #1493 of 1977

lol, I had no problem before and got no difference in the end

post #1494 of 1977

I still notice distortions on upper bass sometimes.

One more example:

00:30-00:48, 01:20-01:39.

Distortion also affects the voice. On my EX1000 it's very noticeable.

post #1495 of 1977

Happy to report not a single skip while playing FLAC files.  Also, I'm really sure that the sound has been tweaked, it's more "comfortable" to listen to and the details of different instruments is more refined.  I'm absolutely sure.

Too bad that all, like me, who bought it without serial number cannot upgrade it. I wasn't disappointed with not updating to 1.10, but with 1.11 I feel a bit angry for not be able to do it.

Isn't there any workaround to this at all. No one that's been looking into it?

I hope that those without serial number will also be able to update it soon.
post #1497 of 1977

With no one working on custom rom, there doesn't seem to be any hope.

 

I checked xda and they do have the dump for 1.10, but they still don't have any method to root F

 

so the only method would be: sell it and buy one with s/n :P

post #1498 of 1977
Have you link to that thread on xda?

Maybe they will have a solution soon. Still with 1.01 it's too good to sell! biggrin.gif But it would be nice to someday to be able to update it.
