    Angry Firmware Update Build 4.0.A.0.42

    Alright,

    My Xperia Play decided it wanted to run a firmware update to build 4.0.2.A.0.42 this morning.. Required hooking up to a PC to do it, unlike previous build which it had downloaded using the wireless connection. No big prob and all seemed to work ok, didn't notice any major changes other than it got rid of a dead icon I had on the main menu and it bolded up the on screen keyboard. Problem is now for some reason some of the games I'd purchased in PlayStation Pocket don't work (Syphon Filter 3 and Wipeout). Syphon Filter 3 runs initially, shows up the first screen with the disclaimer text on and then quits out. Wipeout just sits there with a blank screen after you've started the app and you can't kill it, you have to reset the phone.

    Has anyone else had this issue after upgrading to this build?

    My guess is that those apps will have to be updated to work with the newer firmware.

    You'll probably have to wait for the devs to implement it. I would contact sony about it since it's their playstation app that runs them.

    Try watching this Arc - How to downgrade to 2.3.2, root with Gingerbreak, then update OTA to 2.3.3 & still retain root - YouTube . It might help you. Keep in mind you'll need the 2.3.3 rom.

    Sorted..

    So I'd logged it with SE but haven't had a response yet. I had another look in Market under My Apps and there are now Update options against the Playstation Pocket games - I ran the update manually against Syphon Filter 3 and it works fine now (Though annoyingly as someone has said it was necessary to download the entire image again). Since then it's popped up notifications about updates for the other games, and I assume the issue I had with those will be resolved by doing the same.

    So all good! =)
