A new Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware update started to roll out to handsets last week running the NovaThor U8500 chipset. Firmware version 6.1.1.B.1.54 is now available (or gradually rolling out) for the Sony Xperia P, Xperia U, Xperia go and Xperia sola.
Sony Mobile confirmed that this update brings a number of bug fixes and performance tweaks to “stability, Wi-Fi, tethering/portable hotspot, camera (capture and playback), NFC and Messaging”. The Chrome browser app is also installed when the firmware is updated.
However, all is not perfect. Sony Xperia P owners are reporting issues with taking 8MP pictures with half the picture not processing properly. A number of people are also talking about issues with lag, especially when navigating the gallery. If you have downloaded this new firmware update, let us know what issues you are having.
Thanks Edwin, Jahad and Nabendu!
