New Xperia V firmware (9.0.1.D.0.10) rolling out

by XB on 11/12/2012

in Firmware, Xperia V

Sony Mobile has started rolling out a new firmware version for the Xperia V (LT25i). Firmware version number 9.0.1.D.0.10 is still based on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and uses the same kernel (3.0.21). This new firmware replaces the current 9.0.D.0.484 firmware. There does not seem to be any significant changes from initial observations, but we’ll hopefully find out any differences soon.

Thanks Chompiz!

    hi guys… i am planning to go for the xperia V.. not available in my country.. so planning to import it..

    i just wanted to know if there was any problems of rebooting and randomly switching off and stuff… coz i read about it in sonymobile support… is there anything i have to be wary off?

    also is the phone smooth? coz on swedroid’s post of ui and design.. the phone didnt seem very smooth..

  • Aaron

    I have been using mine for 5 days already, right now I haven’t experience any reboot or random switching on and off. And it seems pretty smooth to me, maybe the review is a little off?

    when is this available in India?

  • chrisphillers

    Ive just updated – the only difference I can see is the LTE logo has been changed to 4G. Im guessing there must have been mainly ‘under the hood’ changes.

    Dear bva
    Yes, many problems. Over 100 customers have complained to Sony since December (see link) saying that the new Xperia V is full of bugs with constant freezing, catastrophic battery
    drainage, WiFi and alarm function problems.
    Nobody is mentioning this, least of all Sony in its daily marketing barrage about the upcoming Xperia Z. There are now 12 pages of complaints on that Sony Mobile site yet still no communication from Sony, let alone a solution.

    Re: Xperia V
    As of 24th January, 2013 over 100 customers have complained to Sony since it released the Xperia V in December (see link at end) about bugs causing constant freezing, catastrophic battery drainage, WiFi and alarm function problems. Nobody is mentioning this, least of all Sony in its daily marketing barrage about the upcoming Xperia Z. Does this mean the Z will also fail to work properly once released?
    I see the UK regulator fined Sony £250000 today for what it called “one of the most serious breaches of the Data Protection Act ever reported” in failing in 2011 to keep its Playstation Network software up to date, thus allowing hackers access to its customers’ personal, bank and password details.
    Sony smartphones had a poor reputation in the past. There are now 12 pages of complaints on that Sony Mobile website. Those people have spent a lot of money on a Sony product either directly or through signing an expensive long-term contract. They deserve not to be ignored and they deserve the mobile media to take up this issue with Sony on their behalf and hold the company to account. In fact the law should force Sony to do so and fine it if it fails.
    Compare this with two friends of mine who experienced problems with their iPhones a year or two ago. They contacted Apple and the company simply replaced the products, no questions asked. It clearly cares about its reputation for technical excellence and customer satisfaction. By comparison Sony stop updates on products less than a year old, fail to fix problems or even communicate with its customers when they report problems. It’s not good enough.
