New firmware (6.1.G.0.0) certified for Xperia S; unlikely to be Jelly Bean

in Firmware, Xperia S

Xperia S FirmwareThe Sony Xperia S (LT26i) has seen its first new certified firmware for months on the PTCRB website. Firmware version 6.1.G.0.0 is unusual in that it breaks the 6.1.A.X.XX form of previous releases. However, before you get too excited, we don’t think this is the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update you are looking for. It may be a pre-JB release or even a customised-carrier version.

On the same day, a number of older Xperia S firmware were also certified including version number 6.1.A.2.55 and 6.1.A.2.50 – both of which have been around for a while. We would expect the JB firmware to take the form of 6.2.A.0.XXX or something similar, so hopefully it’s not too much longer before it hits our radar.

Xperia S Firmware

Thanks to all that sent this in!

    Sorry for the off topic but i received a notification for a new system update.. I don’t know if there is anything new here because the firmware version is still the same.

    Here’s the screenshot
    this is for xperia Z

  • Anyone tried?

  • ??

    SONY said TX upgrades will be completed in the first quarter of this year, but looks SONY likely to put themselves into big liar

  • SonyFan

    do you had the problem that your Xperia Z don’t charge anymore?

  • First quarter hasn’t completed yet.. ;)

  • jag

    What do you mean? What specific change?

  • a

    for XPERIA T also 2 new firmwares certified

  • ??

    I know this, but someone sent a letter to the SONY MOBILE (Hong Kong) asked TX upgrade schedule, their answer is new firmware must be delayed until the fifteenth week of the year “.

    I am very sorry for my bad English, I hope you can understand what I mean, and I hope this message will give you some reference.

  • Herman

    My heart just skipped a beat.

  • Xperia S Android 4.1.2 Jelly B

    WTF SONY? what sony doing????????? S2 is JB
    Xperia S?????????????????

  • jag

    I think everyone has the same version.. I installed it but did not see anything new…

  • pumafn

    I think we should stop worrying about the newest software and versiin numbers and only hope to get optimized updates. Sent from a bugged ics on xperia ray still waiting for a fix.

  • sarcastic

    What about jelly bean for xperia s?

  • It can’t be 4.1.2 because beta android for Xperia S has the number [6.2.B.0.68]

  • Mazin Hanna

    Well, I am sorry that I am time to time writing some tough comments, but you should also understand when we invested money in this mobile, we were expecting to have support from official company. So, I would say, good morning SONY, you still now thinking of JB update?? OMG other brands are going beyond that and already put plan for Android 5 !! We were a group of friends bought XPS once it was launched, now all regret and back to SAMSUNG which doing great in term of support.
    Yes, keep going of your plan and defnitly you will see no one having SONY mobile in coming 5 years.

  • yUlek

    STFU, why posting this kind of comments all the time?

  • rus_media

    I took just 10 sec to connect to PC companion after seeing the heading. And then, ” You already have the latest software”. Then I had to read the full article. :'(

  • I Am Sure Its Jelly Bean Update..Sony Said That They Release Update For SXS In April So It Must Be JB Update ;-)

  • rus_media

    As I said before, “Sony has lots of designers, lack of developers. Others have lots of developers and lack of designers.” :P

  • DrazenDodig

    S4 is not even on sale yet, lol.

  • DrazenDodig

    And here I still dont have JB for SGS2…

  • dimos

    he is right at one point :/ samsung rolls update really faster and they support more devices….but as you said it is annoying having comments like “where is my jelly bean, samsung support their devices better” all the time …

  • *waving my Hand* “This is not the Android version you are looking for.”
    Did i just say that i fckng HATE Jedi?

  • So? The update schedule for many phones are released even before they are due to come on sale? Which world are you in mate? Don’t consider me a Sammy fan! Sony fan here. :P

  • Did you noticed, that everyone who posts the same comments as yours has unlocked BL on SXS? That means, someone who posts comments like “SONY, WTF IS THIS, WHERE IS 4.1.2?” do NOT has unlocked BL and stuck on 4.0.4. thats WHY they “posting this kind of comments all the time”

  • Info

    JB for Xperia S is 6.2.B, for P and Go it’s 6.2.A!

  • DrazenDodig

    So how can Samsung be faster than Sony, when you are talking about Samsung model not being released yet. I have an SGS II and still did not receive the JB update, my phone was top of the line only 9 months ago. So whats the difference? Hows Samsung being better?

  • Samsung gets the SDK earlier than Sony! That is where they beat everyone to it!

  • If Sony said that JB update for Xperia S it will be late mars, early April why there are so much people worried about that? S2 Have JB… so XS it will have… and are you dreaming about 5.0 KLP ?? I think this is the end of updates for XS…

  • PsiClone

    Just one More Month To go then Jelly Bean is ours Too….Just Have Patience !!!!! :-D

  • dime

    Are they serious that this update may not be JB … unbeliavable

  • Uzumaki Naruto

    Yeah WTF SONY!!!!!!!!… Buying xperia phone is a big mistake i guess… No proper updates… we paid so much money for the flagship mobile n this is what u give ah…
    Shame on you SONY :(

  • Mauricio

    Sony Xperia zlp coming with 6.0! wtf samsung s4 still dont exist… when you can buy it you can talk

  • rohan

    whien is sony goin to certify new firmware for xperia ion…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    want to use jelly bean as soon as possible….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    plz sony plz make it fast….

  • knight_joker

    maybe “G” for Google, AOSP/AOKP ?

  • rey33

    come on guys! let sony works and rolls out our awaited jellybean.. Maybe samsung updates faster, but it only updates under the hood (nothing in UI) so you will not notice any difference after the update.. It’s very different with Sony. Once update, we see big change if compared with previous version. Give sony a little credit okay? :)

  • S2 getting 4.2.2 :O :O :O

  • 15 MB O.o

  • Gary

  • rus_media

    Itching ass…

  • dimos

    actually you are is shit with updates and they are right cause we’ve paid 600euros for this device for having it running a buggy ics while a 2 year old phone has allready jelly bean and probably will be updated to 4.2.2. ..but what will spaming change?sony probably wont see and consider those posts…..

  • dimos

    but i bet its not…. leaked jelly bean firmware build number is 6.2.Xcant.remember.numbersX
    so jelly bean will not have 6.1.numbers.0 build

  • Then What Type Of Update Is It? :-s

  • Raj

    i come to xperiablog about 10 times a day to check if sony has released update or any news about the update for xperia s. i tell every friend of mine to buy Sony phone because they take time but they make good phone. if sony does not release update for the phone earlier then i don’t i will be any phone from sony or recommending anyone. that my last warning to sony, i have been sony fan and loyal customer for over 6yrs and im still waiting for jelly bean which almost a year old,
    this is ridicules Sony.
