Only the Xperia go ICS update has been released; Xperia sola & U owners still waiting

by XB on 29/09/2012

in Android, Firmware, Xperia go, Xperia sola, Xperia U


Whilst it was great news to see Sony Mobile sticking to their word on the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Sony Xperia go, Xperia sola and Xperia U, so far only one handset has actually received the update. The Sony Xperia go has updated to firmware version 6.1.1.B.1.10, which was recently certified by the PTCRB, bringing Android 4.0.4 and the 3.0.8 kernel (Gingerbread was using the 2.6 kernel).

We don’t know the exact regions that the Xperia go ICS update is available in right now, but according to reports it is, at least, out in Belgium. The FTF of the firmware appears to already be available on xda-developers, so you can try and flash the firmware using FlashTool if you’re unwilling to wait. For Xperia sola and Xperia U owners, hopefully the ICS update will roll around very soon. When it does we’ll keep you informed.

    outrageous!!!!!!! why is making ics update so hard for sony???

  • Denis Logelin

    as far as I know, Sony has updated more devices to ICS than anyone else. Correct me if I’m wrong!

  • M Usman

    lol I think that was besides his point.

  • The Truth Must Be Said

    Unfortunately sony has been sucking… and don’t know untill when…

    XPERIA U HAD BEEN REALESED BEFORE XPERIA GO
    WHY THE HELL XPERIA GO GETS THE ICS UPDATE BEFORE XPERIA U ??????

  • Denis Logelin

    could be ;) but i’d rather give them credit than blame them. If my Sola has to wait then I cant change a thing. It was a nice phone on Gingerbread and still is! They definitly want to get it out to the public as soon as possible, it’s not like the update is lying around and they just think: aaaw lets see how they react when we just keep delaying!

    I rather want a stable update later than some buggy piece of cr*p, for which I have to wait for the next update to fix the problems it created.

    May be possible because of heavy UI….. As to make it ICS stable, Sony has to take care of even the little things. Just saying !!!

    Perhaps the Go is getting the release first as the Xperia U sucks.

  • M Usman

    potato potatoe lol well enjoy your update when you get it :)

  • infactimacat

    I check this blog every 3-4 hours for updates about ICS for my xperia U :(

  • http://twitter.com/PuneethBedre Puneeth Bedre

    :D, does not explain why the Sola isn’t getting the update.

  • 振萌 徐

    oh no -。-

  • santhosh

    After update from 2.3 to 4.0 in Xperia S, P and Go lot of problems are coming out . So we want 4.1 Jelly bean for S,P,U,SOLA,GO….Please give the update quickly…..

  • Amsakanna

    same here but for sola

  • http://www.facebook.com/kharisma.ankh Kharisma Ankh

    That’s why we need stable releases rather than quick buggy one….. I know it’s hard to wait though..

  • Adarsh

    well that region is Israel which got ics for XP go ! still waiting for Xp U :( wish i had bought HTC

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000092374667 Glen Flores Limbago

    Please release the sola so that all of my phones are ICS 4.0.4…

  • Albert Octavianus

    xperia ion lt28i just got another update to 6.1.E.2.29.. no noticeable improvement or features..

  • jorge

    This is just shameful! I hope the update for U will roll out tomorrow, if not, i give up.
    This is not the way! They promise 3rd Quarter, and today 3rd quarter ends and still no update…

  • Alejandro

    Wait what ? Dude you need to grow up and investigate before talking rubbish.
    Xperia U > Xperia Go , why ? 100 reasons,for exemple : Xperia U Resolution : 800×458 , Xperia GO Resolution : 320×480 (Rubbish) , Xperia U HAS Secondary Camera, Xperia GO HASNT, Xperia U has more OTG Compatibility than GO, and more and more reasons.
    Only good thing about the GO is that is can go underwater for 1m…like if i planned to go swimming with my phone -.-
    Not to mention the Go is just plain ugly.

  • Guest

    yer Xperia U does suck my mums got one and i got a go lol Xperia you has a narrow long screen which makes my go screen look better. Xperia U has no memory card slot which sucks Xperia Go has 4gb built in same as U but it also has a card slot for up to 32 gb and as for the screen res id sooner have a bigger all rounder screen than a narrow long one that is for people with tiny hands. Xperia go Rules over the Cheap U

    yer Xperia U does suck my mums got one and i got a go lol Xperia U has a narrow long screen which makes my go screen look better as its wider.

  • Xperia Go User

  • Xperia Go User

    XPERIA GO POWERRRRRRRRR!!!!! Although the 512MB of RAM can be underwhelming lol!

  • Xperia Go User

    In all fairness the Go’s a decent looking device. The U is sexy though haha. You forgot to mention that the U doesn’t have expendable memory. :)

  • xperia u owner

    From Philippines here…

    I updated my Xperia U about 2 weeks ago and I have now one of the biggest problem after the upgrade — THE CAMERA IS SSSUUUPPPEERRR SLOW!!!!! I thought it was just Sony’s own cam app but when I use other cam apps, the problem still exists and now I conclude that it’s the ICS’ fault… huhuhuhu… Hoping that Sony put a cure on this prob… Having a cam which is as slow as a turtle is really a disaster to me!!! :(

  • jclamond

    I’ve upgraded to 4.0 on Xperia go and it’s slooow. Almost unusable at times.
