I have the generic AU firmware on my Z5 and got the update on ?Saturday within about 24 hours of it's release.

 

Based on past threads on here updates for the NZ devices are typically very slow. I'd highly recommend flashing the AU firmware since there is basically no difference and it's so easy to do - the only downside is a full factory reset.

Thanks Mr Biddle. I took your advice from my last post and downloaded Xperia flashtool etc, but it said my bootloader was locked and I couldn't flash without unlocking. I didn't want to loose banking apps etc..... And the whole factory reset
Let's hope it will be before September when my Sony 2 year support ends

There is no need to unlock the bootloader to flash official Sony firmware.

I had the same thing - had to unlock the bootloader to install an official ROM on my Xperia.  But, unlocking the boorloader is not the same as rooting the device, and shouldn't (I think) affect ability to run banking etc

The March security updates for the Z5 only made it in June so it'll be a while I expect before we see 7.1.1.  People seem to be complaining about connectivity and battery life so son't rush in yet.
