Android 5.1 Lollipop is now available OTA for Sony Xperia M5 and M5 Dual

1 February, 2016 Sony




Sony is updating the Xperia M5 and M5 Dual this month with a security patch and an upgrade to Android 5.1 Lollipop. E5603, E5606 and E5653 are the three versions of the M5 that are going to receive the updates. Similarly, E5633 and E5663 are the two versions of the M5 Dual that qualifies for the OTA update package. It should be noted though, that there is confusion in regard to whether or not the Xperia M5 Dual E5643 is excluded by Sony. All information was provided by XperiaBlog and reports suggest that the news is authentic.


If you have the M5 Dual, expect to see the build number to be changed to 30.1.B.1.33 after the update and if you have the single-SIM M5, it will show 30.1.A.1.33 post installation. According to Sony, the new updates will solve a number of issues on the two smartphones and will improve other aspects. Better control of volume and silent-mode with overall improvements is one of the elements that were highlighted by Sony, along with the newly added ability to control the M5's camera with the Sony SmartWatch 3.


If you are new to installing OTA updates, follow these steps.

  • 1. Go to Settings and navigate to About Phone.
  • 2. Find System Updates and select Check for Update from there.
  • 3. After the system finds the update, Download it.
  • 4. Once the download finishes, Restart and Install.
  • 5. The device will now reboot into ROM installation mode and you should see the prompt Installing System Update.
  • 6. Just wait and the rest will finish automatically. Your smartphone should sport Android 5.1 Lollipop now.
