Make BelieveGood news for Sony Xperia Tablet S owners. Sony has just confirmed that the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean firmware update will be rolling out from 18 April i.e. tomorrow. The update is for those in the US, Canada and Latin America, It is expected to roll out between 09.00 and 10.00 Pacific Standard Time.

Sony originally said the update was due in late April, so it’s nice to see the company slightly ahead of schedule. As well as updating the Android version, the update is also expected to fix the issues surrounding memory management which led to random restarts.

    great !!! waiting for jelly bean update for xperia s :)

    Sony said originally that the update would come out soon after launch, postponed it to February and then postponed it again to late April/early May so THEY ARE NOT AHEAD SCHEDULE, not even slightly. They are MONSTROUSLY BEHIND, even the update concerning 4.1.1 is behind the last JB version. Absolutely ridiculous.

  • upsi

    I were about to say “happy now XS onwers!”

    and then the “tablet” came from nowhere….

  • SonyFan

    @to all xperia s user: sony may be release 4.2 for Xperia S…..can remember? Stock Jelly Bean 4.2 on Xperia S ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/frank.versteegen.750 Frank Versteegen

    Don’t worry the update for xperia tablet s was planned late april may got little early.
    If already confirmed from peterT that random shutdowns are fixed.
    If thats true and seeing xperia V has some fixes to now its likely sony have been focusing fixing issues which is bassicly good news.
    If they have less to fix then they can roll out update faster to in future.

  • http://www.facebook.com/frank.versteegen.750 Frank Versteegen

    4.1 as far i known seeing android 5.0 comes out they might skip 4.2 and go straight for 5.0 and have that out on time for change i hope.

    what did DoomLord say?

  • vision

    I don’t believe that SONY will change their politics and will start make updates for two years old phone… I’m sure 4.1 will be the last for SXS

  • rus_media

    In software support these mobiles are under Nokia 1100 :D

  • rus_media

    Now I know why they don’t understand :O They moved their HQ back to Japan, 10,000 job cut. Means got back to Japanese again and they are really poor in English more than me :P

  • rus_media

    Wait till april 2014 for your perfect OS

  • rus_media

    Obviously it is. But I don’t understand why KLP will be that heavy to run in XS?

  • Jim96

    Yeah Okay

    Typical “Sony” never keeps the dates alive with rolling out Firmware JB update for Xperia P from End of March or Start of April as promised.You know what? I also had the same question last year with my Xperia Mini Pro that it delayed to start rolling out 1 month later than the original date was setted for the ICS update.SONY why you post dates that you can’t be consistent to keep them up? I really don’t know what’s wrong with Sony but other companies are faster releasing their products.

    Bullshit

  • http://www.facebook.com/xR4zz Alex Damer

    That the JB Update should come this week for the Xperia S.

  • http://www.facebook.com/livingforhumanity Mohit Tambi

    Compare The Quantity Of User Of Xperia S Smartphone And Xperia Tablet S?? There Are Lots Of People Who Are Fed Up With The Update Support Of Sony And Really They Does’t Care Their Costumers I Think!!! A Big And Forever NO For Sony Smartphones In Future!!! And If They Can’t Understand And Satisfy Their Customers..They Can’t Be Able To Lead In Market!!!
