Xperia S/SL/acro S owners – how are you finding the Jelly Bean update?

by XB on 31/05/2013

in Android, Firmware, Xperia acro S, Xperia S


Sony-Xperia-Android-4.1-Jelly-BeanIt has been roughly 24 hours since the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update (6.2.B.0.200) finally started to hit the Sony Xperia S, Xperia SL and Xperia acro S. Whilst some are still waiting for the update, a good chunk of you have updated (if not you can always flash the firmware using our recent tutorial).

Anyway, we wanted to ask you how you are finding it – was it worth the wait? What gripes are you having? Common issues we are hearing of include 1080p video recording lag and Wi-Fi connectivity issues. Are these issues overlooked by the fact that you are now running smooth Jelly Bean? Are you actually finding it smoother than ICS? Anyway, over to you, we’d love to hear your thoughts below.

    My google now doesn´t work! only if i write!and I also downloaded the languages ​​and does not work offline!

  • KC

    No doubt its smooth, but m upset with camera thrs blue tint in photos with flash, and battry guzzling ths firmware is.. Dnt knw why..

  • Sarab

    For me it has no Problem. I love it!!!

  • Guy

    - Long-press quick shot doesn’t work for me.
    – Wifi problem.
    – Volume button stop working.
    – Speaker volume much lower.

  • Karolis Bendaravičius

    fcuking awesome.

  • Badflyone

    Now I waint the easy root solution ;)

  • fdsf

    Why ion always after ?????????????????????????????????????

  • Evita

    Google Now seem doesn’t work properly when holding on home button and copy / paste functions in notes is somewhat gone? or I just can’t find it.

  • Carljn

    Frame rate is much higher, always above 24 now. And Google Now is just incredibly intelligent. Overall the UI is better looking, faster at responding and more practical.

  • Dmu

    Ya
    ion is always late

    glad to hear update for s/sl/acro s

    hope to see d same for ion within next week

  • Jerry Berglund

    Well, it is worth the wait. There is bugs, but most of those seem to be solved if you do a clean install of the update instead of updating and keep all apps.

    But its smoother… And the new camera-software is good. Not perfect though. As long you dont use chrome, the phone is stable. I do like this update. But I did not do a clean install. So I do have strange bugs. But music works without lag. Fast-capture works but not if you want to make a cold start of the camera app and directly take a picture. But its only if you use the camerabutton this happens. If you use lock-screen fast capture works fine.

  • Emmanuel van den Brûle

    Really smooth, no more stupid bugs and random crashes. Just voice on Google Now and dictation that doesn’t work. Really annoying

  • Jerry Berglund

    It will come soon… its worth the wait. Promise.

  • Costa

    Battery is draining very fast!..biggest user /Google maps/i switch off google now,but no rezult!

  • electrash

    1. Bad implement of google now
    2. 1080p recoring lag as hell
    3. Slow 2g/3g data conection
    4. Ex menu button have no function
    5. Unable to copy paste

  • Evita

    but overall I’m quite happy with the update anyway, hope for the fix

  • Kima

    My volume up button stop working too while I was listening music via walkman… Is that a bug or we just have to do a factory reset or repair via Pc Companion?

  • Jero

    Very neat. Everything slick.. A few bugs.. But hope they’re ironed out soon.. 1080p video recording sucks

  • Feliciano

    Same here. Using voice search from google now makes the microphone unusable All other apps trying to use the mic, fail (all but the phone). You have to reboot to make it work again.

  • qbzee007

    i can finally understand why it took them so long. i was on a 4.2.2 rom for the xperia s and this is just much more smoother and with all the functionality… loving it.. was really irritated but happy again… too nice…. im in south africa and i used flashtool to update.

  • ImAnurag

    Help me..!!!
    After updating my xperia SL to JB (official), In my phone internet is not connecting, when i turn mobile data on, i am not able to surf anything (no downloads starting).
    I connected via Wi-Fi , not able to surf anything, (downloads not starting)

    Any idea what to do ??? Is this a firmware error ? should i update again ?

  • Carljn

    Do a software repair in PC Companion or Sony Bridge.

  • mackeno

    It gave second life to my XS. No more lags everything is fluid again :) . But dualshock 3 compatibility still missing.

  • shagrath

    video recording is bad,illumination notification does not work at all,to much white in messages and contacts.it turned my phone into an ugly one.never waited for this update!to bad I did it

  • NikAek

    Had a boot loop after installing with pcc ,fixed with sus ,lost root of course but i hope that something will come up soon ,except these its much smoother and better than ics

  • kalyan reddy

  • Mohammad Abu Jamous

    Still no update in Middle East ( Jordan.)

  • code-guy

    Yes, just updated my SL.

  • Xperia S….INDIA

    No Update in INDIA Yet……

  • vishnu

    i tried flashing my xperia s but i cant see flash button in flashtool . WTF ?
    I live in middle east anyone know when it will come?

  • nobita

    It is smoother now than before, really like it! Has anyone experienced a mic problem when using the voice search on google now? After testing the search for a few times, the mic seemed to stop working. I ran a test on the diagnostic app. It crashed when I click record. The voice recorder small app as well couldn’t record anything. Could be a bug in the google now app? Everything is fine after I restarted the phone.

  • Guest

    I am getting this error again and again, i have just updated again my phone with SUS…

    this below photo came as soon as phone booted and then phone booted again to normal sony logo.

  • Dany

    No update in France…

  • Norton

    Everything works OK for me, the only thing that does not seem to work properly is the Timescape Friends widget, which used to have two tabs, one for the manually following and another for all your contacts with FB/Twitter updates, now it only has the manually added tab, which is not useful to me.

  • Techwoo

    I love the new lock screen effect ! I play with it all the time :D
    and everything is a lot smoother now and apps launch faster as well
    (French xperia s owner)

  • akash

    No problems for me, the 1080p recording is a bit laggy woth omage stabilisation on, but thats a non issue for me as i mostly record at 720p. Everything is super smooth. Love thenew lockscreen. Wifi showed some strange bbehaviour when i was at some distance from my router. But that might be due to poor signal today (too much humidity). Near the router, there was no sich problem. The camera focus problem seems to be fixed, but the quality of images is not as good as with cybershot mod for ics. Will have to wait for the mod for jb . was a little disappointed to see wifi direct missing. The new call screen looks a bit odd right now, but i may get used to it with time.

  • Xperia S…..INDIA

    Just updated means…..ur came showed up RGHT NOW…or ur pc companion was showing an update earlier and u just updated

  • ImAnurag

    Check this photo error – http://xperiaguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Photo0093.jpg

    Please tell what to do ?

  • kalyan reddy

    any idea when are we going to get the update in India!!!

  • notbugs

    I noticed that the phone is running much smoother now. Still issues with slow camera start though. Love the miniapps that you can access if you long press the home button. Just like mackeno said, it has given a second life to my Xperia S. I’ve been a bit dissapointed for a while now since the phone just seemed to lag more and more. So the feeling of everything running smooth as butter is really great.

  • tomzemo

    Indonesia – Acro S
    – App drawer shows some lags (maybe caused by 100+ apps I’ve installed)
    – Too many menus with white background => can lead to faster battery drain
    – Still have some noise on captured image from camera
    + I love the lockscreen, new camera UI, app drawer UI (except the lags), WALKMAN with new audio settings, new toggle widget, small apps, and also new XperiaZ-like boot animation.
    + Everything is working fine (notification light, fast capture from lockscreen or press-and-hold camera button, wifi, NFC tags).
    I haven’t tried 1080p recording, so I can’t give my opinion about that

    All you that do have problem. Did you do a clean install. The one that removes everything from the phone, or did you did you just update it to keep everything? It seems to be a problem sometimes when you update android phones that apps tends to make problems.

    Trust Sony to sacrifice the life of a dependable product, with the hopes of increasing the sales of later models. Its sad to see they not pay any heed to the Xperia that put them pack on the map as far as cellphones went.

    I have to say this Jelly Bean update, has been released with no consideration for the customers. I have used the Galaxy S3, and the Nexus 4 and have to say that they are a totally different experience. This update has be released just to keep the annoyed customers satisfied for a bit, till they decide to move on to another unit.

    Look at Samsung and Google (LG), and what they’ve done. They make sure the units are supported till the next major update or challenge from a rival, which is Apple in this case. Sony on the other hand can’t even compete with the Chinese companies, providing android units and timely updates.

    Sony should shut down its mobile and table unit and go back to CRTs. That’s the only thing they are and will be good at at they don’t need to update that product.

    Last Sony, last android… after seeing this. I’ve being using Sony from days of SonyEricsson, I was disappointed with the X10 and now with the Xperia S. Like it or not, Apple does things right. They maybe difficult to work around, but when it comes to providing reliable service like that of a cellphone, camera, smartphone they seem to have the right combination. I

    has anyone from Bosnia updated Xperia S and how????

  • Deki

    It’s really cool and smooth at my side! First, I flashed the version from talk.sonymobile.com but I found that the wifi is buggy and I have troubles installing applications. Later that evening, I put the phone to SUS and reinstalled the software and I got JB for my phone (before flashing the firmware, there wasn’t update). Also, the flashed version had buggy GPS.

    It’s really great and smooth, working really faster than ICS and it’s really better. Tried video conversations, playing games and everything is cool. I love the design! It’s awesome! The new lock screen is really cool!

    I found that sometimes volume up is not working, but after restart it’s working. NFC is working better than ICS, since in ICS it wasn’t working well.

    It was worth the wait! :-)

  • Jerry Berglund

    Yes I do understand stamina word. But yes you go on writing in all spanish instead of english. I am swedish, we do not really learn that much other languages than English, (Sure german and french is common but most of os only speak english besides or own language). Its ok to use spanish, swedish if you try to translate it so the rest can understand it. Thats all.

  • http://www.whatupgoingon.com Greg Macek

    Battery drain issues can seem to exist upon fresh install as the phone settles and refreshes app caches, etc. I also find I play with the phone a LOT more right after an upgrade trying to find all the new stuff.

    Also check the battery stats to see if a specific application is eating up the power. Google+ was for me for some reason. I disabled auto backup and auto enhance for now and waketime is much lower. We’ll see if that helps.

  • liakou

    Phone runs very smooth with Jelly, a lot faster, even with all the apps i have and used to run on ICS, i love that. It’s like i upgraded to a newer phone with better hardware. Had one sudden restart so far, although I dont know what triggered it. I also think that battery life is much better, but time will show about that as it might just be my idea.

    Reporting in from sweden :

    firstly JB is definitive smoother than ICS
    Wi-Fi connectivity is like before and mostly work with no issue
    extended battery mode works very good for me
    Small apps are awesome

    the most disappointing part is the camera, it hasn’t improve at all

    I flashed the firmware in the morning, and by now, here in Brazil, I didn’t find any bug. It’s working good (phone, wireless, bluetooth, etc). I didn’t made a Factory Reset. Maybe these issues may be repared with a clean flash.

    By the way, it become beautiful and I notice a better performance. The Stamina Mode, is only named “Extended battery life”; like a ‘lite’ version of Stamina mode of Z and ZL models.

    Hey everybody, I have a question: it seems that in some regions (specifically Latin America) is running the 6.2.A.0.200 update, not the 6.2.B.0.200; is there any BIG difference between them, or is it just regional matter? Thanks!

  • arduino566

    Nope, my friend. Here in Brazil, I flashed the FW 6.2.B.0.200 (from this blog), and is the same version [I guess] that Sony is rolling out. Take a look.

    Hope that you guys from other regions have these issues fixed.

    UPDATE: I recorded a video in FullHD, and it LOOKS LIKE it’s really Laggy (Autofocus and recording).

    if you dont know what root is then obviously your device isnt rooted.. its not something you have by default.. you have to root it by yourself

    To all Iran users with WiFi issues:
    SONY mobile is aware of this issue and a fix will come out very very soon.
    In the mean time, try to change the WiFi router channel to a value between 1-11 and see if that helps.

  • sonyguy

    Change WiFi router channel to a value between 1-11.

  • shnam

    I have the Xperia S

  • obeh

    The update is fantastic and really makes the phone shine.
    Powering On/Off is a breeze, It’s so much faster. The updated Sony apps are fantastic and Google Now is a vast improvement over the old Google Talk.

    The new camera app is great you can shoot pictures whilst recording there are new filters and it’s easier to change between the two cameras.

    The phone is so much smoother, and I have this website to thank. If i had not used flash tool i’d probably still be waiting for this (much needed) update in July-August. This is the last phone I buy from O2. They’re ruining the open source nature of android by sticking ridiculous boot loaders on these lovely phones. My next phone shall be a Nexus/Pure Google.

    I’m on O2-UK Locked bootloader. This is NOT my carriers official software update.
    I used flash tool as per the method above. Thank you Xperia Blog!
    I’m just waiting for a magical Dev at XDA to see if they can get root back.

Or somebody else can confirm this?

    It’s fixed several bugs that were seriously annoying me before, so I’m fairly happy again. :)

    A couple of things I’ve not figured out yet though:
    1 – Is it possible to change the toggle-shortcuts in the notification drop down?
    2 – Have they got rid of the dark theme for the message app now? White, with a big green Send button makes me cringe whenever I see it
    3 – I’m assuming I can use the root on jellybean to remove the games and sony/fb bloat. Not looked into it yet, won’t get chance until after the weekend.

    Happy Google Now is working on my phone finally!!!

    Everything is overall good and no problems.
    Only my minor gripe is that 1080p recording doesn’t hit the 29/30fps mark and it kinda lags. 720p works fine. Other than that, wifi and other stuff works excellent!
    This is Malaysian Firmware by the way.

  • Xperia SL user From Malaysia

    It’s awesome …

    I like Jellybean.. Jellybean absolutely better and smoother than ICS.

    Especially the LOCK SCREEN!! i like it ..

    but i have some question here..

    – Stamina mode is not available in my Xperia SL. I thought Sony say that the update will be come with Stamina mode… By right, the battery performance is improved ^^

    – When i turn off my screen ..the shutter sound delay >< a weird feeling, but i still can accept it..

    – Camera improved.. capture speed increase,but where is my burst mode ?xD

    Overall : I like this update, it's satisfying me .. thanks SONY .. hope u can do it better ^^

  • disqus_08T17DzMHr

  • Jaiwin

    Me in kerala received JB update via PCC.

  • Yusuf

    You can use the new lock screen by selecting the ‘pattern’ lock.

  • Brad

    Couldn’t wait, so I flashed the software with flashtool whilst keeping my data. Was very laggy on first boot but it’s a lot better now. Changing tabs is very fast, I love the new FM radio app, it has visualisation and is very cool.. WiFi and data are working fine for me.

    Lot’s of little things are better now. Headphone audio output is better.

    Bad side:
    Still not happy with battery life – I can’t tell if it’s better or worse than ICS yet though.
    Loudspeaker sounds bad after update, with or without the new audio effects.

    I have this annoying bug sometimes where the up volume rocker won’t respond to presses.

    That’s my first impressions

  • tomzemo

    updated opinion from my previous post:
    Indonesia – Acro S
    – App drawer shows some lags (maybe caused by 100+ apps I’ve installed) => running faster after few restarts, but still, not so smooth, choppy, just like low frame rate videos (where is Project Butter?)
    – Too many menus with white background => can lead to faster battery drain
    – Still have some noise on captured image from camera => very noticable noise
    + I love the lockscreen, new camera UI, app drawer UI (except the lags), WALKMAN with new audio settings, new toggle widget, small apps, and also new XperiaZ-like boot animation.
    + Everything is working fine (notification light, Fast Capture from lockscreen or press-and-hold camera button, wifi, NFC tags).
    I haven’t tried 1080p recording, so I can’t give my opinion about that => I’ve tried that, and yes, both recording process and the video itself are not smoot, seems like the video has low frame rate.. but, the major drawback is, SO MUCH NOISE on both pictures and videos..

    +Album app is awesome, especially the Globe mode, COOL and SMOOTH!

    – I’ve added Socialife from Play Store, but the app shows “An error occured” in the beginning..

    I hope the next firmware build will fix them all.. But, after all, this update is very awesome!

  • flagshitXS

    so it take Sony one year to make the luncher smoother with JB. some battery could be save with extanded standby mode, camera’s all most sameshit wase of 12Mpx, wifi not as good but still useable
    so ok for daily use but still fuck Sony…waitting for some bugfix

  • Dmitri

    Is the world firmware and the one people receiving in india are any different? Which one is the one that is currently released for india??

  • Jero

    It’s around 6000 now. I’ve had around 9000 with ICS.

  • Jero

    It’s world generic. No difference

  • Rahul

    Please suggest to improve the battery life bcz after updating within few hours it goes from 100% to 40 or 30%…..

  • burrq

    yeah me too..i got around 9000 with ICS..how come the result become worse? shall we need for next little update, fixing the bugs

  • Dmitri

    Did u flash the ftf or updated via PC/SUS? Let the new firmware settle. It is normal for the phone to appear sluggish/laggy after the update for few hours

  • Evita

    Thank you, finally you help me with this one!

  • Jero

    Yeah I guess so. One more update is needed. But Im not sure if it’ll improve the score. Jelly bean is resource heavy I guess and I’ve a lot of apps installed. Although I rebooted the phone for the benchmark I’m not sure what’s responsible for the low score

  • Jero

    Yes I think he’s right. It takes time for it to bed in and for us to get used to it

  • alex26ro

    No, it doesn’t.

  • alex26ro

    Do you have Clear Phase enabled? If not, enable it. See if that makes any difference.

  • varun bajaj

    i just tried wit SUS, still no luck .

  • chandru155

    Hi Jaiwin. Whats ur SI number of XS?

  • burrq

    ouh i see…tq for sharing..we wait and see ^^

  • Yusuf

    Turn on extended standby mode or do a factory reset. If the problem persists, you can always repair your phone via PCC/Bridge for Mac.

  • Yusuf

    White backgrounds don’t lead to faster battery drain as this isn’t an OLED display, where the blacks are actually turned off pixels.

  • Jero

    Yeah hopefully :)

  • Akash Tadmare

    ya i checked by both PCC and SUS…bt still no update

  • mahmood

    hi , i am from iran …

    this update has some bugs , such as lag in full hd recording , there isn’t “STAMINA mode” , and the worst bug is the wifi bug for iranian consumers and unfortunately mobile data is unable and doesn’t work too …and the only way to connect wifi is in airplane mod … plz fix the issues as soon as possible …

    all iranian consumers of xperia s , sl , acro s have the same issues …

  • javad

    I have a wifi problem

  • ayub407

    Everything works ok but the battery goes down like anything.

  • Kurt Hedman

    It works great in Sweden. First I upgraded with SUS but that wasn’t good, experienced lag. Now I have done a full reset/erase of the system and now everything flows smoothly and works perfectly, for now.

  • disqus_08T17DzMHr

    I updated my acro s wifi works smoothly but main bugs am facing are

    1 Lagging on 1080p recording

    Will update be available via Update Service on mobile?

  • Vijay

    Hello everyone: For those who are still waiting for JB update. Do this: On PC companion, click on Phone software update, and then choose to repair phone. The latest available software would be installed which is of course the JB. I did that and was able to update the phone successfully. Please make sure to back up all phone data before doing this. Don;t wait for the push notification!!! This works 100%. I now have the JB official software 6.2.B.0.200 !!!!

  • Satei Hanoon

    Remove Sim Mobile then use wifi

  • Putra

    Idk what’s wrong but the camera has more noise than on ICS.. everything else is great!

  • Jero

    It’s not necessary that it would

  • anon

    i doubt STAMINA mode will not be available at all, since it and SONY BRAVIA ENGINE II are both incentives to buy Xperia Z

  • Sam

    No update,, still waiting :-(, in Delhi Region

  • Vanadium

    Update is good on acro s. But battery drains 2x faster than before

    What?! Are we waiting for a push notification?

  • Apoorv

    Yes dude still waiting…

  • Apoorv

    nothing on the SUS too dude..!

  • Jan

    Im very happy with JB on S.
    I love new options features! some new UI designs, great camera effects, (said hd lags are not the worst), mini apps, some energy saving option, lock screen, percentage of battery, new notification bar, and new caller and thats everything great! that is what i wanted! :) earlier i had just JB dock(launcher) and sms-app, but this changes everything and its very pleasant change. i love old ringtone and also testing clearAudio+ :)

  • blakmaaster

    pllease tell me how u did it…i checked through pc companion and also sony updation service..but it says its uptodate..whats ur si no.??

  • blakmaaster

    u sure it will work??

  • Herman

    I guess you don’t record 1080p video then.

  • punit

    r u sure please reply……….

  • urangsundaasli

    for me from indonesia, normal,
    no burst mode capture, no MyXperia, no Mobile BE2, no suprior auto, new feature “ClearAudio+” can take pictures while taking video, but camera result looks purple when taking a white object and flash light active

  • blakmaaster

    is there multiwindiw??

  • Vijay

    yes I repaired my phone via PCC and it downloaded JB 6.2.B.0.200 for me

  • punit

    ok i will check..

  • topx

    There’s the risk of it re-installing ICS, perhaps yours was coincidental. Has anybody else been successful at getting JB doing this? Please lets have more feedback.

  • blakmaaster

    u checked??

    where are you from btw??

    Just Updated my Acro S! When I used ASTRO FILE MANAGER I noticed that the My Files is now for the micro SD card while My Files 2 is for the internal memory. Does this mean that all app data will be saved in our Micro SD? Cause if YES, then THANK YOU SONY! I can save a lot of memory now!

    Vijay, are you from India? Can you tell tell me your XS’s SI no:?

  • XperiaLux

    Same with my Xperia S

  • Jero

    People from the middle east who’d like to get it early could perhaps flash .55 ICS India Generic and then connect their phones to PC Companion or Sony Update Service.
    It wouldn’t void your warranty and is safe too. Also, you get jelly bean directly from Sony

  • armoret

    After a few days using JB, I don’t see obvious bugs, everything seems working fine: UI more fluid than ICS, less power consuming (7% power loss only after 12 hours durig night with wifi and data disabled)… I can see minor cosmetic modifications, some application backgrounds chanded from dark to light without possibility to customize, etc… In a way, I’m a bit disapointed because I was expecting more new stuffs from JB, so, I don’t understand why it took so long to Sony to migrate JB on Xperia S. I hope they will migrate to JB 4.2 or 4.3 much quicker… [from France]

  • fuzzylogix

    i’m from India. I updated my Xperia SL to JB yesterday. There are a couple of issues with the new update. First is that the camera key doest work. no matter how many times i press it, it doesnt open the camera app. Second, in slide to unlock mode swiping the camera icon to the left also doesnt open the camera app. Anyone else facing these problems?

    Hi
    I’m a sony Xperia SL user from Iran. Because my country is not listed in the support form, I use UAE. So if you are not in charge, please inform Sony about this e-mail because there is no any other way to contact sony for us.
    When Iranian users update their Xperia S, SL and Acro S phones to Jelly Bean, unfortunately they cannot connect to internet via wifi or data. Just in airplane mode they can connect wifi.
    We appreciate Sony for this good update but this issue really annoys us. So we kindly ask you to fix this problem and let the Iranian taste the sweet taste of Jelly Bean.
    Regards.

    The JB update is well and truly live in Australia since yesterday. Use PC Companion software to update. It took 30 minutes tops and I was running JB 4.1.2.

    Try repairing it using PC Companion.. A clean install should help..ICS data could be causing the problem

    Updated my XS in Malaysia and wow it’s a great update. Bug-free I suppose, since I’ve not stumbled upon any issues regarding wifi or camera. Everything works fine and the transitions are fluid. The new UI dazzles in my phone but the white dialler and messaging seems to be too bright. And yea, the battery seems to drain faster but well it has something similar to STAMINA mode in power management (which i suppose doesnt help in anything?). Worth waiting, but i was hoping for superior auto and HDR :(

  • shyam

    is there some place we can check which for SI NOS has the JB updated rolled out!

  • Sergei

    Tried SUS / PC companion /air – nothing for the russia region. I wont try to repair, as Im sure there will be an old version. As for this guy – i think he has updated and eurotest model (ie phone he bought in Germany and using in Russia).

    we iranians have some serious problems with wifi connectivity, it is a new problem just for this new firmware, we can’t connect to any wifi routers if there is a iranian SIM card in our phone, but if we enable Airplane Mode or take out our iranian SIM card, then wifi will work without any problems, and also, it’s just for Xperia S, I mean Xperia P’s jelly Bean doesn’t have this problem, we ask sony to look into this problem for us, as we are all Sony fans and wouldn’t want to change our brand and all of us pay the same price as anyone else in the world, and maybe even more
    Thanks

  • Jero

    You’re trolling out here.. It’s all over India now

  • Vijay

    ok this is what I did. I previously flashed my phone with the JB following instructions from xperia blog using the flash tool. The JB was OK and everything was working. I then tried to update from SUS, It started downloading a firmware which was ~ 478 MB (which is not ICS). So I stopped there and started PCC and my wild guess was that it will also get me a JB and it did!. I repaired and finally it gave me the official sony’s JB

  • Erfan

    I’m from Iran .
    I confirmed that all the Iranian (and maybe a few other countries such as Syria as I heard in XDA) have WIFI problem . Video FULLHD recording has huge hag , Taking Picture with flash has Purple Tint and there maybe more problems which we haven’t discover yet !
    Sony take care Please .

  • Seba

    Im from Chile, i have a Xperia SL

    – It doesnt connect to 2G, on 3G works perfect.
    – 1080 video recording its laggy
    – Whatsapp notifications just sound but dont vibrate
    – No STAMINA mode. But when you are on 14% it said to active STAMINA mode on battery administration
    – Battery life seems to be better than on ICS

    Hi, Im just upgraded my Xperia S to JB just now via PC Companion.
    The phone now running smoothly, and gives a new fresh look to my phone, i love it.
    But the focus of the camera, for me, is like, downgraded from the last version.
    Btw, Im in Malaysia. :)

  • Hany Mohamed

    it is working on mine

    I gave up and flashed the upgrade via flashtool. I have not got any problems with wifi, camera is ok too. I just nmantioned – Facebook for xperia wont let me in, it asks for loginpwd and then starts browser with the mesage “page not found”. Facebook app itself works. Tried via wifi 3g.

    So far i am very surrprised how smooth my XS runs now, even though i am running several programs in the background. I haven´t experienced any bugs either, although google now did not recongise my microphone after the first boot after updating, but rebooting solved the problem.
    One thing, however, that annoyes me is that my brother, who has a Xperia go, has more options in the energy menu after updating to JB. I also noticed that his firmware version is 6.2.A.0.404 and not only .400, which is stated to be the latest version on the sonymoblile site. So I hope that I will get those features with upcoming updates/bugfixes soon.
    Anyway: Thx Sony!

  • Sergei

    Facebook for Xperia wont work on this update. Im not able to login with this typo of account and timescape is not showing facebook stuff. I can hoever use facebook application wo any problem

  • Yusuf

    So you’ve finally flashed the ftf file? Lmao

  • Yusuf

    Duh ‘2G’. Go to network settings and select ‘WCDMA only’.

  • Xperia S….INDIA

    Guys …my SI no is -1257-3318…..got tired of waiting and I JUST flashed with global rom. Works perfectly…no wifi issues…no mobile data connection issues…works great

  • sacrow

    Anyone else facing problem for LED notification for Acro S JB?

  • Kima

    Same happens to me too… And after full charged, green led notification on my phone stands, not disapear, I needed to restart my phone ’cause of that as well…

  • Kima

    Maybe some kind of petition for Qualcomm to release drivers…

  • Vicky

    still waiting like me….got any confirmation that we will get it in Pakistan ??

  • Kima

    I have a led problem on Xperia s… When phone is full charges, green led stands, don’t disapear after removing charge cable…

  • SaLoOoMX

    Please any one tell us when update come in saudi arbia for acro s

  • Enrique

    Bought my mobile in the US (acro s) but I live in El Salvador.. No update yet :(

  • D J Hilton

    Still no sign of it here on 3 in the UK.

    Just checked ‘Update Service’ which tells me I already have the latest software.

  • Akomedstude

    Available for download here in the Philippines!

    Great improvement and lots of new features…problems I’ve encountered are a faster drain on the battery and a notification that pops up when you’re sending too many text messages – still figuring out how to turn that off.

    like u still waiting………….!

  • Mahmmod Lusta

    but i think it’s rollout there o.O

  • Mahmmod Lusta

    Same here ,, but i need to ask u what’s the different between PCC and flashing if I flashing the official update LT26i_6.2.B.0.200_WORLD.ftf ?

  • Mahmmod Lusta

    plz tell me too , i’m from libya

  • Mahmmod Lusta

    what’s the different between PCC and flashing if I flashing the official update LT26i_6.2.B.0.200_WORLD.ftf ?

  • Yusuf

    There is no difference. Flashing the official update is like force updating your phone.

  • Anatoliy

    In my opinion there is no changes in stability, functionality and in Androin in general. I suppose the difference in the third applications which are different for regions

  • Barola

    “Swipe up or down to unlock” text on lock screen often disappears?

  • Chris Handley

    It’s available – but I did a Generic World flash as I was using the FreeXperia CM10.

  • SXS

    Yes it does..I too noticed, it appears for a short period of time only after you reboot your device and then just disappears…anyways let it be hidden bcz i like it when people keep wondering about how to unlock this beautiful SXS ;)

  • Barola

    I agree. I was just not sure if it was a system bug or related to my phone only … it’s just a bit annoying to know that something is not working as it should. It would be great if there was an option in settings to turn it off or on :)

  • Pedro Cunha

    he is right, i tried the World version of the rom, wifi does NOT work at all! even on airplane mode,
    wat is this thing?? wat is it meant to be?! this is not! the agreement a customer agreed ON wen BUYING THIS PHONE! RIGHT? u guys must solve this out, or iranians will not use these toys anymore, there r companies out there who still respect their customers..

  • Pars

    its iranians problems, so its them! who knows wat is right to do, ok? keep quiet son..totally non’o’ur business

  • boks

    it has a Wifi bug and and stamina mode BUT,

    im loving the phone more than ever esp it has a “REBOOT ON SAFE MODE” where you can use only the DEFAULT APPLICATION no GOOGLE APPS, NO GAMES AND APPS. but still we can use the camera, messaging and calls this is petfect if you want to extend to the max your battery. Anyway to those who still doenst know how to enable this JUST HOLD THE POWER OFF AND HOLD STILL THE POWER OFF THAT APPEARED ON THE SCREEN.

    Regards.

  • Nima Az

    Guys… I just updated to JB with flashtool but wanted to revert back to ICS. I used SUS but it only reinstalled JB. Is this because I have already flashed JB or is it because JB is actually now available in my region?

    There was a size difference between the TFT file I downloaded from XDA and the one I got via SUS.

  • Jero

    Good for you then ;D Xperia S/SL needs improvement imo

  • Sahil Mathew

    Flashed it via flashtool firmware available @ xda forums

  • Sahil Mathew

    It has but with a different name in settings: extended battery mode

  • XperiaS……..INDIA

    Check out the tutorial here – http://www.xperiablog.net/2013/05/30/install-jelly-bean-to-your-xperia-s-using-flashtool-tutorial/

    Works for both locked/unlocked bootloader.
    All your internal storage data can be saved…just read the instructions carefully. Also in the instructions it’s written “press back key” while connecting the phone during flashing, instead of that just press and hold volume down…….

    No point in waiting for regional firmware….this works like a charm. Hardly took 20 mins to get Jelly Bean

  • tositem

    I’m noticing super fast battery drain, can’t launch google now by pressing & holding the home button, instead it laumches mini apps & recent apps. Or i’m doing it wrong?

    The camera captures images that are too bright to my liking. But the UI & features are great.

    It is faster now to launch the dial pad, before the update it could take up to 5 secs just to show the dialpad.

    Still wondering if the sociallife would replace the timescape – installed the sociallife app but it always crash.

    I also think there’s some issue with 3G conn & wifi. I have lumia920 too, both with the same operator, but it seems my lumia always get H+ will my Acro S is always busy with 3G & H. And this issue persists since the very first time i owned the AcroS.

    That’all what i notice. Still love Sony tho, cheeers!

  • sacrow

    The problem solved after I restarted the phone

  • Anatoliy

    feel the same… extremely fast battery drain…

  • S

  • Augusta

    Pulse led notif lights issue, It only shows White led colour when missd calls, email, sms. No green, blue leds. Photo results a bit purpleish when camera flash enable. Walkman app play lag sounds sometimes when multitasking. Anyway updated via flashtool (world.ftf ver.)
    NOW my question is why in sonymobile website support for update news says there is currently 6.2.A.0.200. its an A version not B. Anyone??

  • Maaz

  • alex26ro

    That’s ICS. Jelly Bean’s update size is about 500MB. It also says that you already have the latest software. You’ll just reinstall ICS.

    what dou You mean “fails”?

  • Nima Azarbayjany

    Got it! :)
    Thanks.

  • Ville S

    Faster but Animations are very laggy, wifi still not working perfectly, bad camera quality. Wtf!!!

  • Augusta

    Thankyou for your suggest, but this doesn’t solve the issue when using “auto scene mode”. So Sony need to fix this up with new update. Hopefully.
    Thanks for your reply anyway sir. Appreciated.

  • Augusta

    Please define “fails”? From what i knw when using ‘auto scene mode’ the camera would detect the most appropriate mode automatically when object focused. When you try to take a close or very close objects or even texts it should detect ‘macro mode’. Just try to take an object such as texts (distance between camera lens and object around 4-6 inches) it should detect as a ‘macro mode’ when object focused. Ok Hope this helps.

  • Augusta

    Yep noticed. It was very usefull. Hope sony would bring this gesture function back to next update.

  • Augusta

    Mine works fine and launch faster than on ICS. Have you check your “launch mode” preference in camera setting yet? Go check it now

  • Sana

    I also didn’t get the update in hyderabad. But I updated it using flashtool. I am enjoying jelly bean now.. :) :)

  • Satei Hanoon

    I have the same question about 6.2.A.0.200 and 6.2.B.0.200. I flashed the B version, but Sony Brazil shows the A version..
    Xperia S here.

  • Augusta

    When i checked on pc companion the firmware update shows 6.2.B.0.200. I think the sony website fcuked up. Haven’t seen or heard someone updated for 6.2.A.0.200 tho’. So hows ur phone running now sir? Any issue?

  • fried_egg

    no “stamina mode” and no battery saving mode other than a new one that turns all data off if the screen is blank – useless!! has looked faster to recharge but so far has discharged at a very high rate. could be crap ee network though

  • Alex Lacerda

    I haven’t seen anybody that updates to A version too.

    My phone is running very well. No wifi issues, the battery is ok, the only thing is the camera issue that takes purple photos when flash is on. I wiped the system before flashing it. I did a clean install.

    I like this firmware. But I’m not a heavy user, besides the fact that I bought the 2012 Sony’s flagship hahaha.

    flash it

  • Xperienced

    There was a lot of bashing these last weeks, but as far as I am concerned, it was worth the wait. Smoother, much better battery management, improved notifications, stable, some light but appreciable applications improvement (camera, gmail, mail). If it had been launched with an software of that level of quality, the “S” would have been a top end smartphone. It at least get the OS it deserved. I keep it !

  • Augusta

    Same here flashed and wiped all. Infacts am still having some issues like you and everyone else is purple-ish.
    Also pulse led notif mine only blinks white colour for all notif’s. Cant tell much about wifi and battery backup but so far is good. I still wait for sony update to fix this issue. Thanks for sharing sir.

  • Alex Lacerda

    I notice that the led change the color for email notifications and other things, but it still blinks in blue and red sometimes. I really don’t pay attention in wich situations it changed the color.

    Colombia here:

    The only “bug” for me, is the slow data traffic, which was very fast before JB. Except from that, I find the update VERY good. Battery life has been great and the UI is smooth and no Wi-Fi problems whatsoever. Happy with my XS.

    + Flash drive is working too
    + USB Wireless keyboard and mouse are working flawlessly just like when running ICS
    + Combining all of them (Connect USB devices with an USB Hub) is also found to be working flawlessly
    – STAMINA Mode => Extended Battery Mode? Devs, did you forget replacing the word STAMINA?
    Please VOTE UP if you want prefer MUCH BETTER QUALITY IMAGES (and LESS NOISE too!) WITH BIGGER FILE SIZE to worse and noisy picture with smaller file size!

    Flash it, I flashed my phone last night , don’t wait!

  • ManRaj

    I am from India, the update is still not available here.I always thought that I would never Flash my phone, i thought it was very risky. But I finally did it last night. It’s awesome.

    Some Points ! –

    1) Battery Draining Problem- JB consumes so much battery, I know!
    Use extended standby mode, Plus download a battery saver app. The phone will work without draining much battery. I am using 2x battery on JB, it helps a lot.

    2) The Power/Lock button, the up volume button freezes

    I restarted my phone, the problem was gone.

    3) The Lock sound Lag-

    I dont really think that it is a big problem

    4) Wifi works fine for me

    5) Small Apps-

    Awesome Awesome Awesome!!!
    You can download Music and Video Small apps from playstore. It will be same as Note 2 video window feature

    6) Music quality has improved.

    7) 1080P Recording lag is there. (yes, it is a big issue)

    8) Stamina Mode is missing, but yea, Extended standby mode is good.

    9) The Power Saver app is gone. It was helpful in ICS, I don’t know why they removed it from JB!

    10) Over all it is awesome! all the high end JB features are included, themes are cool, Album, music apps have been improved, Throw has been introduced, very smooth and Fast UI,
    Thank you Sony!, XperiaBlog, and the flashing tool people!

    it is like a personal assistant. you select the widget (takes an entire homescreen) and then go to the google toolbar to activate… it learns what you do and like and provides “update cards” it can even so i have read if you ask it too remind you to buy something if you are seen to have gone somewhere later.

  • Vijay

    Indeed, flashing it was awesome, it won’t void the warranty and it is safe. I flashed it 2 days before and work fine. What I did in addition was, after flashing I used PC companion and repaired my phone and it downloaded and installed JB for me :-) the latest available software. Of course I had to restore data from my backup after that, but now I can claim that I have the official Sony’s JB on my phone. Try this , it works! flash it with JB, repair it via PCC or SUS.

  • sharath kamath

    In Bangalore. Didnt find update used the FTF to install using flashtool.
    Initial expr is amazing …

  • darthvader85

    The Update is great. After complete Reset the Phone works like a charm and the battery drain is very good. Like it very much!!!

  • Arne

    Is the battery draining issue solved after a factory reset ?

  • darthvader85

    I think so. For me it worked. I did a Software Repair with PC Companion and now its really good.

  • Arne

    then i will install the update Thnx :-)

  • Maziar

    did the software repair erased your data?

  • Arne

    don’t know yet, but normally only your settings, contact information and apps. All photos, videos, music etc and other data on your internal storage will be saved.

  • darthvader85

    Yes. The Software repair removes, your settings, contacts, SMS/MMS and such things. The photos and movies will not be erased. PC Companion tells you what will be erased.

  • Mat

    No update yet on xperia acro S -Germany. Any suggestions? Check with all sony software tools.

  • Sergei

    I flashed my SL via flashtool, played with it and here is my conclusion : this firmware is not as good as .55. I switched back to ics. I use phone rarely and it lives up to 5 days on ics, but this one eats 10% in 6 hrs which is obviously no more then 3 days. I did wipes, cleanups, and I turned off many things (i didnt in ics), but still it is no much to the .55.

    I had no probs with wifi cell connection and camera was ok.

    Ill better wait for another release.

    PS: There is no official update released for the region = russia, still.

  • Fabio

    Xperia S
    Flash JB 4.1.2 bug report.
    Some apps widget don’t stop on the main page.
    Only custom keyboard.
    Scroll on the browser slow and more lag.
    No stamina mode.
    But those are minor bug.
    For me Sony make a good work.

  • SMARTY

    THANK YOU DUDE

  • Tinrawat Tiaotrakune

    Happy with almost all refinement that Sony did to their Jelly Bean update. Except for HD Video recording. This is awful. The video’s frame rate dropped to 17fps while the phone specification said 30fps in 720p, 1080p and also in VGA mode

  • MobileTipsAndTricks

    No worries :)

  • Amlish Ghaffar

    noops !
    fingers crossed :(

  • Rtmcrc Tm

    The update is Ok, but the camera lag is very annoying i had to switch to 720p.

  • LuXperiaS

    Battery is draining extremely fast, maximum 12h for a very occasional use (no videos, no music, some few sms and calls). Even fast than the phone is not charging if you plugged and still watch videos or listen to music. Does anyone have this problem? Any solutions? I have an Xperia S, in Luxembourg

  • Reynaldo

    i have a problem in sending sms in multiple recipients, I don’t know if it’s just my network provider or on the Jelly Bean itself. the error says
    Messaging is sending a large number of SMS messages. Do you want to allow this app to continue sending messages ?

    I didn’t have this kind of problem when my Acro S was in ICS.

    can anyone help me in this ?
    thank you in advance B-)

  • adam

    extended standby is like V1 of stamina mode, extended standby does the same thing, turns of data and pauses running apps after 15min, stamina mode just lets you whitelist apps u want to keep running!! check this link out http://www.3g.co.uk/PR/Oct2012/sony-extended-standby-mode-explained-and-tested.html

  • adam

    charge battery to full, turn on extended standby mode, turn on flight mode, and unplug just before you go to bed and do not use and battery will still be on 100% in morning!! ive tried and tested this! thats 11hours without loosing any battery!!

  • LuXperiaS

    But did you face any fast draining problem when using the phone normally? I can’t keep it alive more than 12h without charging

  • http://www.facebook.com/schram.arne Arne Schram

    Finally good news about the update !!

  • Stamen Nikolov

    I have problems with light sensor, it doesn’t detect anything! Like it is not working :((( The battery power is draining faster than in ICS. I liked more the black skin in contacts menu and there is no sync function in gadget where you can activate some modes of the phone. The pros for this version is that is faster than ICS, there are no lags at all. So this stamina mode doesn’t work I think. Finally, I am little bit disappointed :(

  • Fix this issue SONY

    I’m from India and i’ve updated my Xperia SL to jelly bean and i am facing the 1080p video recording lag issue it is extremely annoying. I’ve faced this same problem before with my Xperia mini pro when i got its ICS update and it was never fixed even after several updates they have offered and the so called stamina mode is not doing any good its still the same!!. It is more smoother than ICS in other cases even in gaming performance and the yellowish appearance while using flash is also fixed. So please please fix this issue Sony its Killing me !!!

  • Subrat Tiwari

    thxx dude…i m trying it.. :)

  • elmeu coreu

    lets wee if I understood: If proceed for a factory reset after updating, battery drain improved ?

  • LuXperiaS

    I tried a Factory reset, it seems to behave better, but not that much though. But save a copy of your data before

  • omar

    Nothing in jordan, I can’t update to jelly bean

  • omar

    My phone is Xperia acro s

  • Justin Valerio

    I just updated to Jelly Bean on my Xperia Acro S and for some reason the battery is draining even when charging (When the screen is on) I’ve tested with multiple wires and all of them are not properly charging. Stamina Mode does little to nothing to help the battery life. Phone becomes very hot while browsing the menus without having hotspot or any background apps running. I think the menus do not have a fps cap causing my battery to drain. Please diagnose this problem! Nonetheless still amazing job on the update. :3

  • Bruno Jorge

    What about Google Now only “working” only when it wants? Does anyone has issues with Google Now voice recognition!?

  • blakmaaster

    okay bro thanx….
    but how shud i save it??…using pcc takes a lotf time..

  • Vishnu Kanth

    WOW…. JB update for Acro S is really awesome….
    i liked it a lot
    firstly i liked the lock screen a lot.
    even my mobile is running very smoothly
    its really great
    hope SONY will keep its devices updated :D

  • Subrat Tiwari

    Friends i dont wanna update my Xperia s by downloading the firmware manually. Is there any option that i ll just make some changes on my mobile and the JB update will reflect on my phone or in pc companion?

  • blakmaaster

    plz teme something for the battery drain…iv tried reseting…hardly helps..

  • Yusuf

    Nope. Besides updating through PCC/Bridge for Mac, the only way is flashing the firmware on your device.

  • Omar Al Abki

    Can I use the flash tool for the acro s?

  • Akash Tadmare

    I did with flashtool…:) and soon i’m going to root it

  • blakmaaster

    if i repair my phone with pcc,aftr instaling jb in it, will it install jb again or ics???

  • Carlo

    My Acro S now runs better and smoothly than ICS. More functonal stylish and functional UIs. No problems encountered so far. The wait was worth it!

    Thanks SONY

  • Guest

    I had the same problem the first day and I was going crazy. After looking for information through a lot of blogs, I came to the conclusion that some process was sucking the battery up, even in standby mode. I installed these two apps to find if I had such a process: ‘BetterBatteryStats’ and ‘Wakelock Detector’. I found that, effectively, a process called ‘MediaScannerService’ was draining the battery. I searched the internet again and found that this android service gets stuck when it finds a corrupt media file. I looked through my phone and finally I found two corrupt audio files. I deleted them and… problem solved! My advice: search if you have a process that is sucking your battery up, and find a way to get rid of it.

  • Diego

    I wonder when the Xperia Ion will be getting the 4.1 update. It’s June now!!

  • Antonio

    Sony Xperia ACRO S @ Spain
    (from Singapoure, yes eBays got better distribution than Sony)
    Updated by PC Companion, International Build, Not Rooted.

    Found Issues:
    Google Play Music widget makes infinite loop that crash Google Play Store
    Resolved quitting the widget

    More time to switch on and off, was ultrafast at ICS, I really miss that.
    At ICS 5 sec to start, at JB like 30 seconds or more.

    Old Issues that persists:
    SonyEricsson MW600 and Voice Commands are Random like in ICS
    Pushing the phone button at headset and phone says “Speak now”
    them I say “Open Browser” and phones “Dial 131234234″
    Still funny.

    Warming its hard,60ºC at 3D games or playing videos, near to be dangerous, considering that you can cook meat at 70ºC. My solution for this is wearing a leather case

    Improves that I miss
    Not real Stamina mode, I say that because at Xperia Z you’ve got a whitelist to select which apps could override this.

    Connect with dualshock 3

    Possibility to add a shortcut for other apps in multitasking(talking about miniapps)

    I’ve to say that battery endurance’s have grown respect ICS with Extended Standby Mode, like 1 hour more in a hard using, (Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, 3G, and 3D games)
    Only 2 charges a day, with ICS if was like 3 charges a day (I was considering to put a nuclear plant as battery)

  • Guest

    There’s an app called ‘SGS Toolbox’ that can automatically delete corrupt images, but for corrupt audio you’ll have to search manually (or at least I didn’t find any app to do it). In my case the two corrupt audio files were files I recorded with the phone mic.

    Xperia acro S user here. I’ve already updated mine and it’s superb! Really! ^^ Very good performance. Smooth as a butter navigation. Better camera. The Sony media – BEST. The only downside is that there is no STAMINA mode for acro S. Some phones have the STAMINA mode on the update and some just have the EXTENDED STANDBY MODE. You can check it in Sony website under the Update tab. But so far so good. :)

    Attention your Contatcs, Settings and Apps will be remove by Factory Reset, make a Backup if needed!

    Wondering when we to turned on the “extended standby mode” to improve battery life, coz it means when the screen turning off, the mobile data conn. also background data Would be disabled, so theres no push email, push notif’s, etc comes in untill the screen turned bck on. This is ridiculous for me and disadvantage. Not even a good solution to improve battery life. Nuff said

    Same here.
    I tried to use Flashtool but it seems to have trouble recognising the Xperia S as I had the X10 previously but it still shows the X10 as the phone listed.
    I know who gets it first can depend on what network you’re with, but so frustrating. Unless there is another way of getting it without Flashtool.

    Xperia Acro S – Philippines

    Love it!
    – the best for me are the small apps! Its very convenient and easy to use with just a long press of the home button
    – Cool themes! Locked screen has cooler UI..
    – Change in UI for walkman looks great .. but what I really liked is the improvement in shuffle and repeat functions..
    – Camera seems faster to load

    Hate it!
    – Battery charging became sloooooow! and i know that coz I drain my batt all the time and had to charge my phone regularly.. the update just didn’t make it better for me even with the extended battery mode they’re boasting about..

    And thankx Xperiablog team to share FTF steps.

  • Mac

    Update after 1,5days of using on my Acro s.

    Conclusion:

    Positive

    + Smoother than ICS

    + Lock screen

    + Clear Phase (audio setting)

    + Clear Audio+ (walkman)

    + Quick setting bar (or what u wanna call it)

    + Small Apps!

    More things but this is what I can say right know

    Negative
    – Lock screen doesn’t have the opinion 2 use camera

    – Miss the SMS notification slide right 2 it (left 2 right)

    – Camera button doesn’t seem 2 work at all when trying 2 wake up the camera app. (camera works when open up the app manually)

    – Notification puls-light is white not blue or green

    – Ram issue, still reloading home screen after pressing home button (not as often or slow as ICS but still not good enough)

    – 2G notification works.. but NOT web browsing or apps using the net!

    – Maybe just me but I think the Bluetooth connection is a bit unstable and laggy when playing music and using the phone at the same time.

    – Battery Stamina as some of u have mentioned.

    I think that’s all for now. Hopefully most of the important things mentioned would be solved in the upcoming .211 update as this can be awesume. (Still like my Acro S more now than before, just sayin’)

  • Lecksfrawen

    I can confirm this for México, slow battery charge time, overall hotter at all times, slight improvement to battery life and camera.

  • Lecksfrawen

    Forgot to add this: the performance is quite better (compared to ICS).

    From the sluginess that was ICS, JB makes the Xperia S feel like a new phone.

    I have a HK Xperia S that I just updated to JB yesterday. Everything else is good, except that my Walkman app won’t work. It says ‘Unfortunately, Walkman has stopped working’ every time I try to launch it. Elsewhere, I find the inability to use 3rd party app to select a lock screen picture irritating. I have over twenty thousand pictures stored in my phone (most of them manga) organized into folders. Yet when I try to select a lock screen picture, it prompts a two-way choice, either xperia pictures or I pick one with the Album app, with all pictures coming up together. I can’t tell you what a nightmare that is.

  • elmeu coreu

    not improves battery

  • Rupinder Singh

    Its Awesome, I just upgraded my SL, and its working super fine. so many new features added. but people make sure you Reset the phone data after upgrading it, it will clean all the old files and will give you a fast UI.

  • Gc

    dude? did you try to swipe the camera icon? cause i got a problem of my phone when i try to swipe the camera icon it won’t load.

  • Gc

    Here in Philippines, when i turn on the wifi it simply connect fast than the previous OS… and TBH their are lots of improvements in the phone..

  • Gc

    try to repair your phone in sony pc companion… maybe the update is unsuccessful, cause mine works great.

  • gc

    TBH I didn’t encounter a problem in wifi. I only encounter problem when the phone display is in lock mode when you try to swipe the camera icon, it won’t load..

  • Gc

    Here in the Philippines. When I update my phone to 4.1.2 the phone works smoothly….. I only had found one problem, the camera icon won’t load when the phone is in lock mode display..

  • Gc

    As you can see guys, their another firmware update of the phone version 6.2.B.0.211 was certified earlier today by the PTCRB and will mainly bring bug fixes over the previous version 6.2.B.0.200. Sony has confirmed that the update will land during week 23-24.http://www.xperiablog.net/2013/06/05/new-jelly-bean-firmware-certified-for-xperia-s-6-2-b-0-211/

  • Augusta

    found another new issues for .200 :
    1. when charging (even using stock charger) the battery indicator stuck on certain percentage (mine was at 85% with orange led and), after reboot the phone the indicator shows 100%. also when you unplugged the charger when fully charged, the indicator led still on and remains ‘green’. rebooted and everything back to normal.

    2. when open the small app “notes” and write new ones the “smileys+character symbols” on keyboard won’t open. so you need to click the shortcut icon (on the bottom right “small app notes” to switch to the notes main app. then the “smileys+character symbols” could use like wise.

    3. when open bookmarks on android stock browser it lags a bit and thumbnails load a bit less smooth. (only saved 10 bookmarks anyway)

    Previous issues:
    4. still photo results a bit purpleish when camera flashlights on

    5. somehow when i use (third party camera app. for small app) photo results seems far better (no purple and brighter) than using camera with normal way (through camera main app).

    6. Still battery drains too “fast and furious” ! Lol

    7. hope SONY fix the whole fookin’ issues with new update .211 or maybe .911 (emergency call) whatever!

  • Kaloyskie

    My phone did not show any updates too. But when i connected it on pc companion, it shows that update is available.

  • Semo Koda

    hi guys i have sony Acro S … iam from middle east specifically in Syria … is the JB coming anytime soon ??? and what are the confirmed disadvantages for updating to JB… and if not coming soon are there any proxy program that works for PCC or SUS …for me to update my phone … i don’t want to loose my current rom … many thanks

  • bug bug bug

    I have a charging bug just that, please sony fix it

  • Kit Sern Ee

    Xperia acro S after a few days of update the software its just nice ,but the only problem is I encountered battery drainage, IN ICS I am able to hold my phone for a whole day long and still with a 31percent, but with Jelly Bean the battery percentage just keep on dropping like hell,its just like per minute

  • Nick

    my JB update for acro s overall performance is getting better,smooth than ICS,but why no stamina mode instead of extended battery mode?For me it saves battery but not much,and i would prefer stamina mode which is more advanced in setting,and they are some bugs,like video record 1080 is lagging,and if we take picture using flash light,the colour of the picture will more to purple colour which is worst than before and the battery will overheat sometimes.I think the update can be better,hope sony will have solution for that,thanks for concern.

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Where is the option to swipe the edge to next tab in the default browser!!!!???? That’s the most useful feature of the browser!

    I don’t want to use the chrome, I disabled it.

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Try checking it with SUS.

  • Augusta

    CONS in my ver.
    1. ugly white UI in messaging. (need to roll back to dark/black UI just like on ICS.
    2. very ugly theme and UI when receiving calls “accept and reject” icons.
    3. “swipe up or down to unlock “on lock screen” is not the best methods. it should’ve the option in setting to choose whether we want to swipe up or swipe down to unlock the screen. not both ways.
    4. “bluetooth toggle on notif. bar useless! need to switch for (auto sync / auto-rotate / flashlight / screen brightness / popup volumes menu is more useful).
    5. home screen should have an option to “Lock and Unlock desktop/screen to avoid unwanted gesture actions like (remove or delete widgets, or edit screens) if screen accidentally pressed or swiped.

    PROS in my ver.
    1. smooth UI and gestures.
    2. new small apps and recent apps features just superb!.
    2. opening apps or settings much faster.
    3. loading and scrolling app list in “setting – apps” is very smooth and fast. (even more than new 50 third party apps installed).
    4. new toggle mode in notification bar is good and innovative. (most of the toggles are useful but bluetooth).
    5. the new UI of stock ‘Alarm & Clock’ is very nice and useful.
    6. Dialpad UI seems nice, and open dial pad is faster than ICS.

  • Pradhyumn Parashari

    hi akash,

    did u have any success in rooting ur device ?

  • vincent

    I loaded yesterday and used upto 18hrs, the firmwares working great, fancy gui, quite smooth, 3g wifi or also bluetooth works on xperia acro s. The problems is the battery drains very fast, as long as i use wifi listening to music, the batt consume from 100% to 70% for 1h30mins. When i use mobile data, it is more consume than wifi. When using ics, it takes 3hrs listening to music from 100% to 70%,the jelly beans consume double! Btw the phone is hot.
    Another problems is about camera when using flash mode is being ambered with purple color.

  • mohnish

    everything working grt n better thn ICS….no camera lags nor wifi problem n even no heating problem………i hve nly 1 problem i.e battery problem….my phone battery discharge drastically as compare to ICS….but overall JB is better thn ICS in all field……Xperia SL India

  • shyam

    How did u update?
    sus or pcc or flastool?

  • mohnish

    PC companion……u can update to SUS n also with flashtool…….!!!!!!!!!!

  • Torek

    It is not very worth the wait!!

    I am so disappointed with this JB update.

    Beleaguering issues I found:

    1. SUPER LAG with 720p and 1080p video recording.

    2. The phone is HOT all the time.

    3.
    The content played through HDMI to my Sony HDTV is no longer smooth.
    It’s laggy and stuttering. Can’t stand watching another movie from the
    HDMI. It sucks!

    I am so desperate right now. What are you doing, Sony?

    FIX is needed ASAP!

  • Torek

    And one more:

    4. The background color of SMS and call app is all white! Why can’t you let us pick our own favorite color or maybe at least the color matches with the theme we select?

    What’s the difference between my phone and my house’s wall now?

  • naveen

    can sumone temme wen is dis jelly bean actually releasing? am frm india hving xperia S…….. :(

  • shyam

    I check it everyday no update on both :(

  • Adi

    Hey guys. I just updated a couple of hours ago from Malaysia.

    Overall,
    PROS: worth the wait. All the mini apps and interface are beautiful. Feels like a new phone.

    CONS: a bit laggy. (only have 550mb of my rams available). Battery hogger! Apparently it switches on every 2-3 mins and the processors never sleep.

  • lan

    u guys that having problems should of downloaded sony updater not the pc companion (as it wouldn’t work for me) from there website and do a clean install. I did that. no problems everything works as it should

  • mohnish

    keep ur phone connected for sumtym u vl get notification about update……!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Akash Tadmare

    yes i flashed it sucessfully

  • Robert Edge

    Still nothing on my Acro S (1266-3189_R6G) this has got to be the most poorly handled update program in mobile phone history, I can only hope that someone in Sony reads these pages and implements a better approach to updating than this shambles…

  • Herman Sutikno

    is it just me ? i found my acro S more lag when i upgrade it into JB . no smooth at all . can i downgrade it into ICS again?

  • Saurabh Gadkari

    Guys I have recently updated my Xperia SL to jelly bean and I was
    expecting the multi window feature as in samsung phones but I could find it anywhere in my
    phone!!
    Has any 1 got any idea if this feature will come to xperia S/SL or not??

  • Pradhyumn Parashari

    Thats.grt news…can u plz share the application and the method to do it
    Thanks in advance.

  • Kurt Hedman

    To all of you that experience lag, do a full system reset after update, to get rid of all old stuff and settings.

  • Akash Tadmare
  • Pradhyumn Parashari

    Akash my query was that if you were able root your device, by that i mean u have superuser access. I checked the link you shared above and it is about how to flash the device, i had already done that before posting my query.
    Hope u get my question this time.

  • tarek

    update available in middle east… iam in kuwait 6.2.b.0211

  • kalyan

    Guys!!!

    does anyone know when is the JB update going to land in India!!!(visakhapatnam)

    For Xperia S!!!!

  • Carlo

    Experiencing lag after update? What you need to do is perform Factory Reset on your phone and erase everything. Then do a repair/update the firmware on your acro S. Fixed most of my phone’s minor bugs including lag.

    And of course, back up your important files first before doing the repair.

    No updates on your area yet? It won’t show/notify on your phone. Best thing to do is to connect it to your PC companion first.

  • Xperia Sl

    thnx for the update….. how is the performance, my update is under processs…:)

  • Todd Sarney

    Seems like bullshit to me. Not a single sign of the update for Xperia S in Australia. There’s an update to JB this Sunday and I don’t have JB yet.

    hey everyone i really need your help .. i’ve updated my phone Xperia Acro S this morning to JB 4.1.2 (6.2.b.0.211) … and it seems to work just fine except the wifi is not working properly it connects for a few seconds then it gets disconnected …then i cant turn it off or on :( … also turning the phone off didn’t work … can anyone help please ???

  • Lewis

    can anyone tell me how to set my own mp3 as the alarm sound!?

  • Lewis

    if anyone wants to know about setting your own alarm sound you have to drop the mp3 into the folder “ALARMS” on your SD card… not hard but a bit annoying and that wasn’t required before.

  • I love sony

    Problem with WiFi problem with bad pics problem with old menu style eventually it doesn’t worth the wait…

  • portugal_user

  • hassoun

    It’s great, running smooth so far, however the phone and messages apps are white, it should change with the theme, thanks SONY, you’re the best.

  • Jim

    Finally after the Jelly Bean update Xperia S looks better with the new and smooth interface. However few problems which i have encountered.
    1. Battery drains out real quick
    2. few camera fucntion not working. Example in under Normal Mode the scene selection is not functioning.
    3. Timescape no longer working. Does not opens at all
    4. Problem with feeds not getting updated real time even on wifi

    Still exploring ….

    User from India

  • Stewart

    Incoming and out going caller picture not working. Have tried resetting the images but still not working.

  • Shweta Srivastava

    From India: jelly bean update is draining battery at a faster rate.. On the pro side, functioning is smother and new look is great.

  • kiran

    Really works smoothly but only defect is it drains battery too fast

  • Maarten

  • Maarten

    After a few weeks using jelly Bean:
    – batery charche slower
    – batery is uncharched faster
    + camara is starting faster
    + can add home screens

    Some bug fix for the batery, and its good

  • Asma’

    WTF!!!! i’ve bee going crazy all day trying to find out why the WI FI no longer works with the new update…restated the damn thing more than 20 times only to find out that cus of sanctions on Syria it wont work!! i have to chose between receiving phone calls or using WI FI?!! how fucked up is that…i love my phone n was very excited about the new update but now i can hardly stand looking at it …. u better find a solution real quick cuz Sony phones are really popular here in Syria but it wont be for long before ppl start dumping their phones in the garbage!!!….

  • Guest

    May I suggest to put the battery percentage inside the battery and make the battery icon bigger, and please make the phone and messaging applications black with the effect of changing the theme, SONY forever.

  • Hassoun

    When I wake the phone by the power button it’s slower than ics, but everything else is faster than before, may I suggest to merge the percentage of the battery with the battery and make the battery a bit bigger, also make the phone and messaging applications black and reacts with the changing of the theme, the rest feels perfect, thanks. SONY forever.

  • yunes

    I now have the update and i have to say i expected more than this. Yes its a bit faster now but it isnt so smooth in the menu. Even samsung galaxy s2 with its jelly bean is much smoother and thats a 2011 smartphone. 1080p recording fails now and that sucks too. I just want smoothness thats important for me.

  • JF

    But how do you update with Acro S? My phone shuts down during update and then I am asked to unplug the cable and push down volume key while plugging the cable in again but nothing happens, it just keeps asking me to do that over and over for about 3 hours now. I’m so frustrated I almost threw my phone. Can someone help me please? :(

  • franklin raj

    did u see a green light stay up when holding the down button and connecting the cable ? try other ports or maybe drivers are not installed

Sorry, I’m not very good with the technical stuff. Would you know what drivers that might be? Because I assumed I didn’t need to install anything anymore except PC Companion for updates :/

  • Kimbogreen

    various problems with android4.1.2 in australia on Sony Acro s…It has slowed down camera from lock screen opening speed. Was the fastest openening camera.. Not now..

    Also the video feature on camera faults every time and can’t use video camera..

    Also the weather app doesn’t work any more.

    Another bigger problem is google voice search doesn’t work any more on google app, youtube app or gps navigation which makes it dangerous to use when driving…have to stop to type in search.

    The battery drain is faster. When charging over night, it fully charges the starts draining battery so you could wake up with only an 85% charge..not good..

    We need another update and we need it fast sony..This is rediculous.

    I wanted a good Japanese phone with good features and it was until this android version update turned it into a fault filled piece of crap..please rectify soon…the android version would be OK if everything worked properly but it doesn’t…2 other people at my work with the same problems

  • XPERIA S ROCKS

    everything improved
    Found lots of more camera settings felt awesome

  • GiveMeMega

    Late to the party now but still: Very dissapointed you didnt include STAMINA mode since that was a feature of the Acro S from the beginning. While I certainly understand that my Xperia T did not get STAMINA mode my Acro S should definitely since I had it before. Removing features isnt my cup pf tea. Also, to look at small apps, I have to hold down the home button, while the pages button (or w.e the button to the right of home is called) is not used by anything. Its surprisingly annoying having a button that does nothing :p give my stamina mode back, and im very happy with the update. thank you for supporting older models!

  • Dan

    Very smooth and great,

    my mic has stopped functioning. I can’t test it in diagnostics or use it for Google now???

  • JF

    Hmm…haven’t experienced that yet. But then again, I don’t really record videos that much. I’ve had problems recording instagram videos though. App keeps crashing, but maybe that’s just instagram being buggy as hell :/ So far everything else is working properly.

  • Navneet

    Although the phone is way more smoother and fluent I am facing issues with data. Data just does not work properly while on 2g, I have to switch to 3g in order to access data

  • lean

    no home screen?! can make it to settings and messages and sent ,just makes it a balck screen, xperia s, help!?

  • arash

    I am from Iran. After updating my xperia s to jelly beans I cannot connetc via wifi unless I put my phone on airplane mode ! Sony plz fix this issue, or I should change my view about sony products that were famous for their reliability !

  • sirakov

    I can accept the bug that are well known- they will hopefully be fixed, but I am irritated with the phone being waken up by Android System for 18 hours and draining battery. That was persistent in ICS and now, in JB it is the same. Noone knows what is causing that massive wakelock…

  • Vinay Yadav

    from India
    very very slow 2g problem, video recording problem
    except that everything is working fine!

  • TJH

    It’s been pretty good, a few issues, the main is the HUGE increase in battery consumption, a standard day’s use drains the battery completely. Second and third are Google Now, there’s no shortcut to get there, not on the lock screen, nor using the home buttons, really annoying that You can’t swipe up or hold Home to get access. I’d rather that than the small apps. Third is periodically, Google Now voice search stops working. I need to restart to fix it, not very efficient if I go to ask it to show me something and need to turn off the device and try again afterwards. After all this wait, how can it still be this buggy? I thought the extra wait was supposed to illuminate them.

  • HELP!

    Where is my photo album?! Its gone! No longer exsists!

  • selva

    i too got the same problem…for me also the swipe is not working

  • SeanApple

    Is there some way to fix the horrible white screen in sms and dialling screen without rooting?

  • ashir

    well, i had my xperia s updated a few days back. the first day was good enuf and i was smug about having installed the latest…..Alas, from the second day onwards the software started showing its true colors. major problem is the start up. if the phone is in a the locked/sleep mode and then u ‘ON’ it, the desktop goes haywire. the apps start off automatically and the processes overlap each other. it looks kind of funny with the walkman logo jumping in and out, the desktop pages zooming in and out, the weather widget minimising and enlarging on its own…..its like all of these are in a vaccum. it takes about a good 2 mins. for the normal mode to restore but again when u awake from the sleep mode it repeats. i got soooooo frustrated, felt like banging it against a wall. i called up cust.care and they said JB hasn’t yet released in India!!! How’s that for the joke?? and they said there are a few others who have complained and that they are working on the update software. i cannot now downgrade it to ICS so they said take it to the service center and have it repaired. i did that using PC companion but its the same…..My only hope is that Sony comes out with a fix to this problem and gets an update to the JB which resolves these issues. Faaaaasssstttt. i really used to like my ‘S’ with the ICS……..

  • Nicholas Maxwell

    my voice recognition fails. How do I fix that.

  • Jawad

    Xperia S. Yes it’s actually running smooth better than ics and I was really waiting for the notification bar shortcuts. No Wi-Fi problems. Haven’t tried the video.recording. But there is a problem with Google play services. It keeps giving an error message and when I try updating it says cannot install app on default install location I’m sure there is enough space!

  • fhdi

    i ve upgraded ma phone to jellybean but after that i cannot see any pictures in ma phone in the album..when i open album they are present but not shown..only black screen appears..there are albums present but not showing..can anybody help me out

  • matthew moores

    my battery now lasts 2 hours due to “Exchange services” that I am not able to stop manually. the upgrade has rendered the phone almost completely useless.

  • franklin raj

    i also mailed the sony team,they even said xperia s jb not out in india.i tried the update long back and because of full load of bugs i am back to ics :) lovely ics

  • Johnie Keatings

    I agree.

  • sneheet

  • sucks to be you…

    sucks to be you man.. :)

  • Suhaan Boxwala

    After a certain usage of 1-2 hours my SL tends to keep rebooting the Wi-Fi router… The router does not reboot if the Wi-Fi is disabled on the SL or the cell is restarted. The problem started only after jelly bean was installed

  • ex

    I have an acro s phone. Just recently upgraded to JB.
    Pros:
    it has better UI than ICS. You can remove extra home screens. More customizable.
    Cons:
    consumes a lot more battery than ICS. Lags frequently and when it does, the phone is rebooting. Average is 4-5 times a day. Occasionaly disconects my wifi.

  • Joana

    VERY awful since the volume up bottom doesn’t work. I have tried EVERYTHING. Other people also have the same problem!

  • Daniel

    a few days after the upgrade suddenly I couldn’t turn on mobile data.
    after a few useless vodaphone reps saying the problem is with the OS, I’ve started fiddling with the options myself (there aren’t many) and what finally solved it was just to manually define the APN.

    hope it helps.

  • mtbphil

    The phone looks and feels great but functionally it is so slow, apps crash a lot, it runs very hot and the battery life has been cut by a 1/3.

  • J Y Milan

    Weather widget will not load. All contacts had to have ringtones added again. Moving wallpaper stopped moving. Just lots of general niggles.

  • Sudeep Rao

    I use Xperia S and I would like to say that this is a horrible update. Battery Life reduced like crazy! , Auto screen rotation hangs, Keyboard (gesture input) hangs. Wifi connectivity is not as great as it used to be. Overall the upgrade has been really bad for me, and I just wish to know if there is ANY WAY by which I can roll back to Ice cream sandwich. Bad job Sony.

  • Ciarán Dixon

    Battery drains quicker, Background for Contacts and Messaging is white which is difficult to read and I guess something to do with the battery too..

  • Manasir Manu

    my data traffic is not working properly in xperia acro s since when i updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean (6.2.B.0.200)… i wil sure that its not the problem of network its working in another device… Please help me…plzzzzzzzzzzzz….

  • Meghana

    I didn’t like the white background for contacts & messaging/ is there anyway we can change the color of the same

  • carl

    dont seem to be a customer with a proper phone …

    i feel like an alpha tester

    terrible update, and it has effectivly made it a phone with no video camera.
    piss poor sony testing before release !

  • Marcin UK

    Battery is going down much faster now,but they said they improved battery life with this update.Wifi is all the time connecting and disconnecting! if i charge my battery to full,disconnect charger,20 minutes later is 90%,when i wake up this morning is only 77%! is even worse then before! I hate this phone.all the features i can use when i’m connected to charger – when i’m home i can use my f***ing laptop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1.5 years left my contract with this piece of crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pate

    Video recording lag is terrible, DO something about it. Yes the UI and phone in general runs a lot more smoothly now but the video is USELESS!

  • Sharon Da Silva

    I was at the point of looking for some hacked firmware when the update finally arrived. The difference is huge! Everything works smoother and faster, it is as if I bought a newer phone. Only thing that’s a bommer, is that the camera botton, and icon at lock screen won’t work.

  • viv

    Unfortunately my volume up button has stopped working on my acro s. Not sure if it’s a hardware problem. Did anyone have the same issue?

  • Ramesh karn

    i have recently updated my Xperia S to android 4.1.2. it looks good. but i have some issues after updating.

    1.) camera works good for pic mode, but for recording its capturing looks too slow like 1.3 MP camera.

    2.) phone processing becomes too slow , may be cause most of the time 80+% RAM is full.

  • shan

    no lags at all

  • Áêşåłá Wïjéšíňğhë

    does the xperia acro s have .211 update

  • mm2u

    Ever since my Xperia S updated the other week the AccuWeather widget that came on the phone has failed to load. I have even successfully downloaded it from Google Play to see if that resolved the issue and it still has failed. Has anyone else had this issue and is there a solution? Plus I’m finding that my battery life is dreadful now … not good :(

  • roger

    Laggy when video recording. Laggy videos when played by hdmi. Personal words are not automatically saved when typing text messages. Swipe is too cliche. I want to revert to ics if an update to get this bug fixed won’t come very soon

  • Miguel Dio

    Can’t connect to network… Speeds up phone but sometimes cause major lag… Otherwise… Really great

  • Mac

    C’mon! News any1 can’t live with the phone being just half of what it should! I really need my 2G network! Vid recording is very laggy. NFC tags is working slow. And the phone is unstable. Still laggy home screens. Using .200 official JB on my acro s located in Sweden

  • daub

    Since I update to android 4.1.2 in my SL mobile I had a problem with WiFi connection I can’t use my WiFi any help regarding this issue???

  • Isaac

    The up volume button stopped working right after the update on my Xperia S and I found out in the internet that several persons are having the same issue.
    ¿Does someone know how to fix it?

  • Jay

    My main problem is the wifi connectivity, after I update my Xperia S to JB, when I connect to my wifi router, my wifi router always turns off and on

  • Prabh Singh

    when will the voulume up problem be resolved for xperia sl

  • Jöns Ekman
  • Monty

    The update is crap, since updating my Sony Xperia S I can’t connect to the internet properly, I can’t use YouTube, I can’t send emails via the mobile network, I can’t send MMS, I can’t use my sms voice text and my navigation is gone and I am now forced to pay for some rubbish which is just dumb. How can I return to the old software?

  • KrazyFace

    It’s God-awful! Now I can’t tweet pics, all my backgrounds to contacts are white, and my msgs, it now takes an AGE to link into my coffee house wifi…

    I wish I’d never done it. I actually want a new phone now!

  • KrazyFace

    Yes. DO NOT take this update! It’ll ruin your phone.

  • franklin

    actually u can downgrade to ics without any worries.i did that :)

  • Cadika

    I’ve got a meesage from “Sony updates” that JB is now available for my Xperia S (Indonesia). I’ve been waiting for this updates since everywhere else in other countries they already have the update. I was thinking that my Xperia S will work much better in term of performance.

    Well, I was surprise that I think my Xperia S was better to run in ICS. First with JB, when you want to swipe right and left panel in home, I experience a little lag. It’s not as smooth as what I feel when it was running on ICS. I tried S*ms*ng G*l*xy S3 mini with its Jelly Bean and the experience felt much smoother and that is very dissapointing :( (Im the only one who use Sony Xperia S in my office and really proud of it)

    Second issue that I find quite disturbing is the camera. It’s really bad for the coloring. i dont know why it could be like that but it’s worse than a phone with 5 mega pixel. Also, I never could focus my picture during live feed. then when I press the shutter button, it automatically focuses. It’s really annoying because I need to open other other camera App.

    Third problem that I have, sometimes my volume button can’t work. I have to restart my Xperia S to be able to press the volume button.

    Is it able to downgrade my OS to ICS? or will Sony adjust some of this problems in the near future?

    Regards…

  • wendyh

    Please can someone tell me how to copy and paste,i use every day
    But since update I cant do it!!

  • NOTAHAPPYBUNNY

    I am so unhappy with JB. Not only has my battery life diminished, I’m lucky to get half a day on battery, but around a 1/3 of my pictures don’t show up in my gallery. I can still see them in ASTRO but they should be in gallery with the rest of the images. My camera is slow and I’m just so disappointed and would be happy if I could uninstall this!! JB was certainly not worth the wait. Sort it out!!!!

  • Dean Vukovic

    very bad I am sorry to say. It keeps draining battery and even if you don’t do anything on your phone it will go to 80% in 10 minutes, second it’ doing stuff itself and you can hardly turn it off because mobile keeps doing everything itself, third sometimes issues with screen when you open an apps or something it doesn’t do anything. Please sony fix this issue somehow urgently.

  • Urgent

    i cannot send sms to any one after updating…it says unfortunately messaging has stopped….nor i can send messages neither delete previous one

    Problem with video and audio call

  • wasntthinking

    I know it’s not a problem with the update but I really need help.
    Since the update it changed my ringtone, when I went to change it back and clicked the wrong file without realising and then clicked always instead of just once for the new options thing anyway I only have a choice of the tones that come with the phone not my custom ones anymore!! I still have my own music I just can’t select them as a ring tone. Can anyone please help????
    Please only genuine help. I know it was a stupid mistake

  • Mark Jordan

    My phone has been crippled by Jelly Bean. Video is now jerky, black screens waiting for it to respond, peripherals don’t work and excessive battery drain.

    You have at least 2yr warranty on your phone (EU Directive).

    Phones have to be replaced or upgraded (Xperia Z) if they are not fit for purpose.

    OK – I bought mine from Phones 4 U. I phoned them and told tehm about the problems and of course, all they can do is send it off to Sony for repair. I am going to do that through Phones 4 U.

    They gave me the support number for Sony and when I told them there was a problem with Jelly Bean they said that no-one has complained about it and it is the first they have heard of it.

    The number (UK) is: 08705 237237

    They told me that there is no downgrade option. So – I will send it back, they will not be able to repair it, All other Xperia S phones will be sold with the upgade and be crippled. Answer – they will have to upgrade or find a new Xperia S on Ice Cream Sandwich.

    My phone is like new, it has been in a leather cover with a screen cover since new, I am not going to accept a second hand used and scratched up replacement.

    If you decide to send your phone in for repair, take a video and photos of its condition.

    At least phone them to state what is wrong with Jelly Bean on the ‘S’.

    My issues are:
    1. Whether info never appears.
    2. Up key of Volume rocker sometimes doesn’t works at all.
    3. Battery Saver is the worst (it was good on ICS)

  • Matt

    I updated my phone to JB a few months ago and was happy with it.. Until it went into a boot loop. Eventually managed to do a hard reset, but when I turned it back on it boot looped again. Eventually got it to work by removing the SIM before turning it back on. I turned the phone off, reinserted the SIM and it worked ok for about a day when the same thing happened. I repeated the process, and fed up, I did a complete system reinstall using the PC companion and it’s now working better and faster than it did on ICS.
    My only question now is, it has a sound recorder installed as an original app. I make a recording, save it, but I cannot find it anywhere on the phone

  • AS

    My Xperia S is getting shutdown many times in a day, battery life very poor. However all this happens when i am installing my previous apps which i had before update to 4.1.2.

  • aligamz

    Battery life has become very poor and “Android OS” (as reported by Onavo Count) keeps consuming data in the background for no apparent reason.
    Don’t want to downgrade, though, since phone is much snappier in JB (believe it or not).

  • Rai

    Please release a new one, I am having problems with putting my phone on with mobile services. Crashes, overheats, and restarts alot. My phone is Xperia V please…..!!!

  • Astha

    Although I love JB more than ICS, I hate the fact that I can not copy paste anymore :( Please resolve this issue, Can not even save pictures anymore.Fon hangs some how very often

  • Dv

    After update, realized battery drains quickly than normal. The RAM usage is also very high. Above 520Mb most of the time.

    Like the UI very much. Smooth and neat..

  • Nothappy101

    I updated my Sony Xperia S to Jelly bean, and everything is great easier to use and everything but i have too problems and they are major one one my wifi keeps turning on and off all by itself and my volume up button works form a while and then just stops until i turn my phone off and on again and these are big problems because i use the Internet a lot at home and listening to music so i would have to say that this update wasn’t what i expected and im really disappointed.
    If anyone know of any ways i could somehow fix these problems, and a detailed explanation would be great since im don’t know how to do alot of stuff
    Thnx

    This pisses me off! I have Acro S. Recording videos is not continuous. It stops on it’s own even I did not stop it. Also, playing videos is not continuous. It will suddenly stop on it’s own and again I have to press the play button to continue playing. for a 20 seconds video clip i have to press I think twice or thrice to finish watching the clip. It sucks!

  • scorpion

    hi there… the jelly bean update in xperia sl is a very good change i have seen, but the very important feature like 3d sweep panorama and multi angle option to take photos has been removed in jelly bean update. it was available in ics so plz sony give an update for this settings in camera.

  • Jomz
