02 I'd imagine, are you able to update manually using pc Companion? If boy you'll just have to wait I guess

You can't force these things, when the update is ready for your device you will receive it.

Hiya
Giffgaff do not update phones. You will have to wait for sony to put the update on their website.

As giffgaff do not do OTA updates it will be delivered direct from Sony when O2 approve it.

Ok folks

 

Sony won't release the sim-free update until the major physical operators approve it.  When I had a Sony Xperia Z1 this meant roughly 5-6 WEEKS after everyone else.  Cause of problem?  T-Mobile.

 

Note that there's another update been announced; so now it's:

 

17.1.A.2.55 -> 17.1.1.A.0.402 -> 17.1.2.A.0.189

 

Don't blame Giff Gaff for this; it's the Voda's / O2's / Orange's / T-Mobile's of this world.  And of course, Sony and their stupid release process.
