The time has come. Sony has stuck to its word and the Xperia S Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update is now rolling out. The Sony Mobile France team just tweeted out the following: “Xperia S: The deployment for 4.1.2 build has just begun for the first builds.” [translated] We don’t know exactly what build this rollout relates to, so please comment below and provide screenshots when you receive the update.
Update: As at 17.00 (BST) there appears to be no sign of the update so far, plus the official Xperia S support page has now reverted back to the last ICS firmware (6.1.A.2.55). Sony Mobile France is adamant that the “deployment is ongoing” and that “many more builds will arrive next week“. We’ll keep everyone posted on further developments.
