Xperia Tablet S gets new ‘release6a’ firmware; fixes VPN issue

in Firmware, Sony Tablet


Sony has released a new firmware update for the Xperia Tablet S tablet. The ‘release6a’ firmware is a minor update, clocking in at 17MB and fixes a VPN connection error. The Android firmware version remains at Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and Kernel version 2.6. It’s probably not worth updating for most, but if you’ve had VPN issues then this will be right up your street.

Thanks Ali!

    I am experiencing an annoying issue with the time; the device cannot stay on the right time anymore ; it advances way too quickly

    Is anyone facing simcard slot problem? I cannot insert my so card in to the slot. Something is blocking. Sony says my warranty is not covered for this problem..is anyone facing the same problem like me.

    I bought my Sony tablet S in Brazil, last mounth, and it came with 4.0.3 (release1a). I’m having problems with VPN connection!!
    I didn’t contact Sony support yet, because I’m searching some solution in web!
