    Help Xperia play Gingerbread to Jellybean/Kitkat

    Hi can anyone advise on how to update my R800i which currently running Gingerbread to Jellybean or Kitkat?

    I have tried following a tutorial, but unfortunately struggle to get my phone into fast boot mode. (Bootloader unlock allowed = No)

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Serious battery issues with KitKat 4.4.2 at the moment, my Xperia Z is getting barely 50% of it's usual life, I'm posting a link to a workaround in another thread. . .
    If at first you don't succeed.....redefine success. . . .

    I'm on 4.4.2 with a Z2 and don't have any issues, I haven't charged for over 24 hours and still have 55% left.
    The only power saving I have on is the wifi switched off whilst away from home.

    Mine has been brilliant until now, I always charge over night and have rarely had to top up or charge early, I use hardly any power saving (location based WiFi) and have the screen brightness all the way up. As soon as this update was done I have major issues and googling has shown that I'm not alone. . .
