in Android, Firmware, Xperia V

The Sony Xperia V (LT25i) Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update has started to roll out according to reports. The update brings along firmware version 9.1.A.0.490 (this compares to firmware number 9.1.A.0.489 that started to hit the Xperia T last week).

The update appears to be available in a number of European countries including Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Switzerland right now. If you too have received the update, let us know where below.

Thanks to Datagubben for the image!

Thanks JD & Xiatian!

  • Dave

    I’ve just installed it on my LwW and it works great! :-D

  • I’d suppose that it’s not an update for Germany and Switzerland; I think they were released there already running this firmware? Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

  • lovebmw

    Good Job Sony, you are redeeming your self!

  • David Guillot

    Yay !! Does anyone know if this firmware fixes the SoD issue ? If it does, the Xperia V could finally be released in France !

  • Xperia S Jelly Bean

    Xperia S Jelly Bean?????where????

  • kumar

    waiting for update for my xperia tx

  • Keon Fraites

    Be patient they said we’re not supposed to be getting it till End of March – mid April. I want Jellybean on my XS also but we have to wait. Theyr’e rolling out on schedule be happy its not “We’re postponing again”

  • TheLoyalist

    march/april as stated earlier

  • Since they found the cause for it I’d say chances are high the fix is in.

    Or maybe this firmware doesn’t even need it.

  • XperiaBlog

    If anyone has the ‘About Screen’ with the new update, send it our way and we’ll include the image in the post. Thanks!

  • Andreas

    Got it in Sweden

  • Wooooooooooooooooooooow , so quickly , Sony Rocks

  • Yes, give ore Xperia S JB now.

  • nimit

    Jelly bean after the whole world gets 4.2!!! WTF SONY!!!! Cant You Keep up? Or should we switch to google instead…

  • Whole world as in that 4or 5 phones?

  • Erachter


    Say what new features bringed 4.2, coz I don’t see anyone.

  • David Guillot

    I didn’t know they found the cause, that’s good news !

    In France Sony is really secret about the Xperia V, they say “Release end-January”, then they say “Release when the SoD bug is fixed so we don’t know”, then they say “Release is not sure”…

    Thank you anyway ;-)

  • There was a fix for SoD released for Xperia AX, which is NTT docomo’s own version of the V.

  • ProWeirdo

    You’re right, that’s shitty. End of March is the last moment of giving JB as Sony declared. They care more about their new flagships.

  • Datagubben

    Its Swedish, but maybe its ok? I send it now

  • Bva

    Has it been released in Singapore?

  • Roman Potter

    Estonia, my V has been updated.

    ** i don’t like new Revamped UI (white phonebook, messages)

    ** ugly launcher (laggy, white borders such a 2000 year ) terribly..

  • fuckinslow

    got the update on my X10

  • SonyFan

    me too it is 4.1.2 right?

    here my screenshot

  • Aokde Gharra

    if someone has updated, please upload a photo of how the lockscreen behaves when there is a pattern lock (or a pin lock or a photo lock, whatever lock there is..)
    thanks :)

  • maxiobor

    I bet it will worth thr waiting so just be patient!

  • Kawmi

    I guess the Xperia V is never coming to the U.S. ha?

  • Shenzay

    Jelly beans for Xperia S, When in UAE ?????

    GS2 and the first Note are only getting 4.1 now, for the Note its March. The S3 only received 4.1 in December. Comparing the size of the two companies, Sony is already much faster than before and is catching up. What are you complaining about? Only Nexus devices are updated as soon as the new versions come out. If you fancy stock Android, you should get that. Otherwise, I don’t see any other manufacturers rolling out 4.2.

    Are u kidding me? 4.2?? Which device has it ? Googke nexus? That only one device.. does it come with sony walkman, sony audio + , auto superior mode, mirror sharing and playstation? Get real dude unless you are modding type of person.

  • is that a official update? :O if yes ,that’s weird. Sony left behind the 2011 Xperia lineup and update 2010 model with a 384MB of RAM to jelly bean :S

  • fildza

  • Coollead

    I feel terrible for Xperia Blog… it must be annoying as hell to see all these brats complain constantly about the WHERSZ MY XPEIARA S UPADATE?????!1111ONEone. Like he can do anything about it…

    Calm down people. You’re getting the update. You’re getting it in the time frame already announced by Sony (March-April). This post is about the Xperia V. Go away.

    Wow.. just update my xpv.. very sleek and very nice ui… very matured.. i like it.

  • xps to xpv

    Well i own xps and xpv now… and i purchase my xps without any contract and directly from sony. Even it late to recieve JB still the current os running smooth without any problem. its already a year now. Sony warranty already invalid for xps. Why dont you just root and playing with custom rom people in xda makes for xps. My xps now run xperia z custom roms with be2, superior mode capture abd ui similar to xpz.
