Jelly Bean firmware certified for Xperia J, Xperia TX; Xperia E appears on PTCRB

New firmware has been certified on the PTCRB website for a number of devices. First of all, the Sony Xperia TX (LT29i) has had firmware version 9.1.A.0.492 certified. This firmware will bring Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean to the device. This firmware is a minimal update to the 9.1.A.0.489 / 9.1.A.0.490 versions that are currently on the Xperia T and Xperia V respectively. Sony already confirmed that the Xperia TX JB update will arrive in March so the timing of this certification makes sense.

The Sony Xperia J has had firmware version 11.2.A.0.21 certified. We can’t tell for certain that this is Jelly Bean, but it appears to use a significantly higher version number versus the current firmware on the handset (11.0.A.7.10).

The appearance of the Sony Xperia E (C1505) on the PTCRB website with firmware version 11.3.A.0.47 also lends some credence to the fact that the Xperia J firmware is indeed JB. The Sony Xperia E will arrive with Android 4.1.2 when it launches in the next few weeks. Therefore we know for sure that the 11.3.A.X.XX firmware is JB, there’s a good chance that 11.2.A.X.XX is too. Sony said that the Xperia J will receive the JB update from the end of March.

Lastly, the Sony Xperia tipo (ST21i) has had new Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich certified with version number 11.0.A.4.27. The Sony Xperia tipo dual (ST21i2) has seen firmware version 11.0.A.6.8 certified.

  • Still feels like getting a kick in the back to see the J getting JB, and the more powerful 2011 series don’t. How I wish the J would have the same internals to make porting an option…

    what about Sony Xperia S ? :)

  • My XTX is ready

  • Glory Arc

    Mine as well ^^

  • I think New kernel & Internal Memory of XJ! Will easily handle JB!

  • I hope devs get the 3.x kernel for 2011 devices ready before I ditch my Neo. CM10 is running smooth, but there’s some unsolveable bugs like HDMI.

  • boosook

    It’s unbelievable that they didn’t update their most successful flagship of last year yet…

  • ?????? ???????????

    As sony sola user – i am very dissapointed about stupid sony conclusinon not to update sola to JB.

  • NikAek

    As the said long time a go …last from all.

  • I can confirm, that the mentioned XJ version is JB.

  • NikAek

    Is just a shame of them ,they should update it first

  • Czechu

    What about Xperia P ?

  • AA

    I know!!! But I just tell myself that all good things come to those who wait… (self comforting)

  • Lucian

    well, if XJ got new firmware certified already and will be updated ahead of schedule maybe XS will get the update sooner.

    On XDA, Doomlord said that leaked Jelly Bean looks nearly finished, so I still have some hope that we will get JB soon for XS. It sure would be a nice gesture from Sony to surprise us.

  • And for Xperia P?
    No news?

  • marco

    has anyone read anything about the TL for att being updated to JB?

  • Adrian Casillas

    I don’t believe any news has been released about the TL. I think I read somewhere that it was supposed to get the update in March, but seeing as it has to be approved by AT&T first, that could delay thing’s. The firmware was certified almost a month ago, so it shouldn’t be too much longer. It took the AT&T Ion like a month and a half to get the update after certification. So if that pattern continues, we should be getting the update for the TL in about 2 weeks, maybe.

    How come?? or just trollin? Is it official?

  • I think XP will get JB in a Week or Two but XP will get JB bepore my XS :(

  • kedar

    Xperia u and sola must get new stable jelly bean update.

  • dereknobuyuki

    I guess it’s not surprising that the Xperia GX is not included.
    Japan is kind of like the USA in that carriers still have a lot of power and it takes carrier effort to get updates out.

  • Sony have to update Xperia sola to jb if they want to keep their customers longer.

  • Xperia 2011 user

    When are they gonna release 4.1.B.1.13 firware for Xperia 2011???

  • arki

  • What abt Xperia P?

  • Fahim Faisal

    What about XS? XJ’s specs is 3x worse than XS.

    Also, XJ is NOT better that Sola. Its confusing. :S

  • noobaster

    really? xperia j? before the xperia s? Oh my god the sony schedule man really screwed up a little bit

  • Nomi
  • Come along you little TX Jellybean. Not long now.
    Once I have on the phone, then that’s good enough.
    I won’t be screaming for 4.2. And by the time Key Lime Pie turns up, I’ll be playing with some new toy, so I’m not stress about that.

    Give it to me Sony.

  • sony must learn how to treat their ex flagship properly just look at how samsung updates their past flagship phones
