For those who own a Sony Xperia device powered by a ST-Ericsson NovaThor chipset, it looks like a new firmware version will be heading your way soon. A new firmware version 6.1.1.B.1.54 was certified by the PTCRB earlier today.

The firmware has been certified for the four Sony Xperia devices with the NovaThor U8500 chipset which includes the Xperia go, Xperia P, Xperia sola and Xperia U. The update most likely offers only a minor improvement over the existing firmware (6.1.1.B.1.10). We’ll bring you more news if/when it rolls out.

Thanks Aaron!

  • Upgrade manually, it’s easy

  • Q1 2013

  • Xperia Go isn’t made for HD games

  • if it’s manufactured en september its normal, ICS came in August

    So having been “certified” by that “PTCRB” doesn’t mean it’s released yet? o_O

  • Miguel C

    Let´s hope that solves the Wifi problems in the Xperia U

    Its a long time since Xperia S got an update, the dialer app sucks big big time. It is buggy, the phone acts weird many times and gets stuck in between.

  • millA

  • ah ok! that’s bad for you =(

  • they told they were working on it (to know if xperia U can or not get jelly bean)

  • no! they can release it days or weeks after or never

  • upgrade manually

  • i hope it will solve the laggy problem of xperia go.

  • just watch the forums, or directly go on xda-developers forums, there are official and non officials roms, you can upgrade manually for Official without unlocking /rooting phone and without void warranty =)

  • fidfidelis97

    what computer language you use ?, if english why not u use your sola in english ?, i use sola too

  • fidfidelis97

    great news, hope will bring improved memory management, because after update to ICS I found only about 50 MB free ram its very lagy if you browse something on internet

  • fidfidelis97

    what things make you happy if xperia u not getting jelly bean ? ~_~

  • dj ksr

    Xperia u wit android ICS doesn’t support adobe flash player!!! Please fix this issue in upcoming update….

  • ???? ?????

    install any compatible firmware don’t wait SI or ur local, Arabic lang exist in any version of firmware of sony, if u don’t found by default use “local language app” from play to unhide it.

  • josesl16

    excuse me for my n00bness, but how do I upgrade manually with unlocked booatloader? XDA isn’t up-to-date to the really minor improvements, after all.
