in Android, Firmware, Sony Tablet

cidLooks like the Sony Xperia Tablet Z will great some great developer support. Following the news of Sony adding the tablet to the AOSP project, CyanogenMod has announced the release of CM 10.1 (Android 4.2.2) Release Candidate for the device along with an experimental build.

The Xperia Tablet Z is due to go on sale across Europe and the US next week, so this is great news for owners who may not fancy running a stock experience. You can find the necessary download links here, but remember you’ll need to unlock the bootloader first which will void the warranty.

  • Sorry Offtopic but… Xperia S Jelly bean, when? haha :D

  • Loken

    another reason why i should get xperia tablet z

  • That was quick

  • Everyday it is more funny then the day before.

  • You know the Sony UI is much better than stock for Tablets. It is just superb.

  • Feanor

    I also think so. Xperia Tablet S JB update is great.

  • Whaat?! You still haven’t got it? Xperia S owners should march on Sony HQ and hurl rocks at the windows of those overpaid bunch of suits. (And then buy a new phone maybe)

  • Not yet… they said the end of this month. Like they said in March and April.

  • Enough has to be enough at some point..otherwise Sony will continue to treat its customers like shit. I’ll be paying attention to see if the Jelly Bean update is bug-free at least when it arrives for S owners.

  • and…..what about our tablet s1 ?

    if no jb… least unlock the bootloader , so we can get cyanogenmod

    sony it’s just like that guy who kills you and he won’t let any body to bury you , so your body get rotten..
    fuck sony..

    You must be retarded in the head JB for xperia tablet s is awfull laggy and not smooth, not to mention very buggy.
    but i guess you never had a nexus 7 in your hands, so you have no clue what you can expect from the hardware in the xperia tablet s.
    jelly bean is supose to fix all lag and make animations and fonts very smooth, which it does on nexus 7, but xperia tablet s is just awfull.

    You can thumb me down you can thumb me up i don’t care, you all known i’m right.
    Sony should move away as much as possible from making their own firmware and stick with AOSP and have their own apps in google playstore instead, paying google to do their firmware updates because their to stupid to do it them self.

  • Arokhantos

    Probably never untill they unlock bootloader and root which to late for already, since thnx to sony this tablet is near end of its life anyway.

  • ShinOrochiX

    What about Live with Walkman Jelly Bean? I am still waiting!!!

  • That tablet was made by Sony back then when it was still Sony Ericsson

  • Arokhantos

    hello mr troll

  • Are you devoted to saying this now, Mr Pathetic? You know you lost

  • Arokhantos

    Lose what get the fuck off xperiablog you fucking troll.

  • That ladies & gentlemen, the sound of butthurt

  • Feanor

    Funny but I have an Xperia Tablet S and my girlfriend a Nexus 7. My tablet is as smooth and fast as hers. Maybe I was lucky with the update…

  • Arokhantos

    Sometimes nexus 7 can be laggy and not smooth to which means your girlfriends nexus 7 is probably faulty.
    But by all means if you think your xperia tablet is is perfectly smooth show us record a youtube video.

  • jag

  • Arokhantos-troll

    Dude leave that guy lol …. he is paid by Sammy to come and comment all the posts , he will never stop complaining lets get on with our lives , no use fighting with shit , coz at the end u will get it back ..

  • For a lot of people, phones and tablets are an integral part of their social life so your comment is invalid as well as being vindictive.

  • Shai Nagy

  • probably in june! lol

  • Babylonbwoy

    I don’t know how is this RC for XTZ but for XZ it’s far from being stable! They turn them in RC just because of the 4.3 anouncement…
