@adfree, Z1 wont be supporting theme store, rather it will just have 2 additional themes preloaded.  This is due to memory constraint on Z1.

As of now Application QA with Z1 2.4 release is being done. Wherever store QA team is finding problems developers of  third party applications are being informed and asked to update the apps.

As you can understand this is a time consuming process as dependency is on individual developers who have their own schedules and priorities.  However the final software release should happen with in Jan 2016 :-)


It seems you may need to wait for one more week and FOTA will not be on 22 Jan.
