Xperia S Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware leaked

by XB on 19th February 2013

in Android, Firmware, Xperia S

We may still have a six-week wait until Sony officially releases the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Xperia S (LT26i), but if you want to see what’s in store then you’ll be glad to hear the firmware has leaked. Firmware version 6.2.B.0.68 brings with it Android 4.1.2 and a new 3.4 kernel to the handset.

As with any leaked ROM there are a number of things that do not work including the ability to get a network signal, so only download this if you want to try the new features. It is developer firmware that has been ported to production devices and therefore will only work on phones with an unlocked bootloader. You can install this using recovery and full download links are at xda-developers.

Thanks Andy, Domino, Muhammad & Murad!

    Hhaha It seems XPS will get it earlier than XPP

  • Issac

    I wonder why haven’t there been any information regardin Xperia P and Go update. I’m expecting the worst.

  • von


  • about time. i hope we see it fast like xperia T after their leak. after all xperia s was a flagship so it has priority over the smaller ones

  • The Xperia names already confusing, why make it more confusing? :P
    Sony Xperia SP = SXPSP
    Sony Xperia ZL = SXPZL
    Sooner or later, if they keep it at this pace, they will most likely start with 3 lettered Xperia. Confusion will be OVER 9000 !!!

  • majidsaba

    is it usable on xperia SL too?

  • bro

    i have been waiting for this for a loong timee… :)

  • jeree01

    Maybe because there is no developer with contacts as DoomLord, that ownes XperiaP:)

  • dime

    Good news :) go on make the update faster :)

  • Doomlord ,like a BOSS !

  • FG

    he owns both XPS and XPP…

  • Ryan

    Xperia S = XS
    Xperia P = XP
    Xperia SP = XSP

  • Hope it is released before schedule :D

  • Babylonbwoy

    It’s the one that Doomlord posted in his sneakpeak thread on xda, he just managed it to work on our devices… Won’t try I think…

  • ProWeirdo

    Amazing! Before I clicked on XperiaBlog, I thought to myself: today they will post info about JB for Xperia S, AND BANG!

  • SonyFan

    vote here for Sony!! who designs best looking smartphone?

  • jeree01

    Ok,I thought he owns Xperia S and T : And maybe he ownns all Xperias;

  • glad to hear it’s not far away, but I gotta say I was hoping they’d skip 4.1 and go straight to 4.2

  • devices like Samsung s2 , htc one s already running on JB…. n Xperia S will take 6 week more to get it… Bravo….

  • anas

    finally i was about to sell my xps release it nwo

  • it was AMAZING!
    installed it today after i read that News and tested it a few ours… it runs smooth and fast as hell! never thought that the S was able to bring such a nice Performance… smooth Scrolling, faster app starts… and the best: 700MB of usable ram instead of 630!!! that means: clean System 320MB free after boot… basically set up System 270MB after boot… (on ICS 240MB/180MB)

  • Waiting for Xperia Acro S

  • Wajih Bizreh

    Does it also work for Xperia SL?

  • For phone enthusiasts like us, this is a great news! I sometimes root my phone for the purpose of testing the true potential out, and unroot it after that because I want to keep the OTA updates. This is a good chance to take a glimpse on the next update before official release. Remember to save a backup before doing it though!

  • I need to ask a question that makes me confused, why in all official Sony Mobiles photos the time is always 10:35 ???!!!

  • Ben-Amie Lim

    can i flash this on my ion ?

  • Andy

    You are so smart! It’s like S2 or One S got JB a week before it was anounced! Cmon. Everyone has to wait a few months for updates so don’t try and be smart!

  • Waiting For Notification Of Jellybean In My Phone :-D (Day Dreaming) :-P

  • dimos

    gonna test it and inform you how fast smooth or good it is…..

  • ProWeirdo

    I’ll do my best. Like a Sir.

  • Fraulein

    Why abbreviate Xperia at all? You’re model doesn’t make anything clearer. If the model name is P, call it P. Anything else will add confusion in the long run.

  • It’s about time!!

  • 68 days till the end of April, of which the JB update should be out.

  • konvicted

    I wanna sell my Xperia s anybody interested…….

  • sandeep

    m interested to buy

  • Malinga

    Battery Backup s more important for Android ..but is not in that….all applications running more usage of battery.

  • Updating from gingerbread to ice cream sandwich was bad my xperia s is slower and lower ram causing lots of lagging , I hope the update to jelly bean is worth waiting for.

  • srisharan
