Android 2.3.4 Xperia rangeToday it is the turn of the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc and Xperia PLAY to receive the Android 2.3.4 firmware update, following on from the Xperia neo yesterday. As with the Xperia neo, the firmware is updated to build number 4.0.1.A.0.283.

It only appears in select firmware regions at the moment (Nordics/Global) as we couldn’t pick up any updates from our UK devices. The v2.3.4 update brings video Google Chat, a new 3D panorama camera feature, a swipe text input system, screen capture and further enhancements to Facebook inside Xperia. See some screenshots below.

    I updated mine yesterday using my PC. If you have Telenor/Netcom sponsored phone it may take a couple of weeks before they release their version.

    flashtool 3.0 says it’s only for X10? I’ve got the 4.0.1.A.0.283 ftf file, what do i do next?

  • Esebastian

    Do I have to debrand my unit to version 3.0.A.2.181 first before upgrading to 4.0.1.A.0.283? Or I can go directly upgrade to 4.0.1.A.0.283???

  • Manas Adhar

    the 4.0.A.2.368 is a firmware update… Lots of UI changes, zoom for camera, landscape mode for home screen, music player and gallery enhancements, lock screen animation (Nexus S style) etc.. 
    Overall it is a really good firmware update… Waiting for the 2.3.4 update… Will make this phone truly awesome…

  • Rash1223

    In India the new update comes as version 2.3.3 not 2.3.4

  • Stako2009

    when is it coming to greece???

  • Kevin Pyper

    The phone is released in the UK and expected to have been updated through the “from the air” update center app. It defeats the purpose of the app when we can’t check the version and the latest one to get on this which is the downfall of it unfortunately.

  • Kevin Pyper

    When did the 2.3.4 release on o2? Can’t seem to get it on mine. I can’t download PC Companion as I have Mac :/
