Xperia mini Android 4.0.4 ICS update rolling out

by XB on 13th June 2012

in Android, Firmware, Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini owners will be glad to hear that the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update is finally rolling out to handsets. The Talk Sony Mobile forum has an updated list of SI-numbers which can now be updated to ICS (firmware build 4.1.B.0.431). The news means that only one 2011 Xperia model is left on the ICS list, that is the Xperia active. Hopefully, the update will be coming to Xperia active owners imminently.

Xperia mini Android ICS update rolling out

  • Congrats mini users! /Active user

  • Wassouf


  • It seems to be working fine. My dad got the update last night, as I sat envious with my XS( ;) ) and most seemed to work fluently. There didn’t seem to be *that* much new(wasn’t expected), but what was there seemed very nice.

  • mingguan

    Xperia S owner very envy…
    BTW, hope XperiaBlog can find someone to test the following when updates roll out on Xperia S:
    1. Battery Life of 2.3.7 VS 4.0.4;
    2. GPS signal loss issue (currently temporarily solved by using flight mode).

  • this is just ridicolous.. even a LOW-range smartphone is updated to the newest software before the new highend phone lmao. > XPS user..

  • rarias

    “imminently” I would say OBIOUSLY…. the question is WHEN?

  • IIRC the XS 4.04 update should come out at about the same time as the mini, so hopefully it won’t be long :)

  • Come on guys its okay. I got XPS too in mid April and I know Sony always give their best at what they’re doing. Gotta admit it’s a bit late,but I prefer well-optimized software rather than a rushed release :)

    Hello to all!

    I’ve installed the ICS 4.0.4 on my Xperia mini and I can say that it’s perfect. It runs very well with no problems at all (for the first 72 hours of using). Graphics are good, heating problem solved, system is fast and stable and the battery last with 20- 25% longer! Alla around it’s really good the 4.0.4 ICS update! I recommend it! For those who don’t have the update out via PC Companion they can update their phone manually (caution this procedure may void your warranty but it’s safe 100% if you follow carefully the steps from the link): (maybe you have to register). The installation is simple: 1. get the flashtool, 2. Download the ICS rom from the table (for your phone), 3. follow the #3 and #4 steps and you have the ICS 4.0.4 on your mini! After that download the Sony Update Service and reinstall the ICS on your device (to run it flawlessly), you can find the SUS on this link:
    Enjoy the ICS 4.0.4 on you Xperia mini!
