Xperia S JB update

Sony Mobile will soon rollout new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware to Xperia S (LT26i) owners.  Firmware 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 (so we should see it released by week commencing 10 June).

  • Nowfal

    Sony. Are you really Sony ? :D Good going.. Waiting.

    angry xperia ION user in 3…2…1 :D .. just kidding :)
    that’s fast update from sony..

  • darkerm

    hope it fix bug of Full HD video rec and Cellular network

  • AA

    I thought I would stop checking up on this blog like crazy once I received Xperia S Jelly Bean update but here I am… who am I kidding? Lol. Anyway hope this fixes laggy camera and the weird error message when in low battery (there’s no freaking STAMINA mode to turn on on S, hello!), and for some, their wifi connection issue.

  • David

    Thanks Sony. The fast bug fixes are much appreciated.

  • dsadada

    xperia ion lololololololololololololololo sony ?????

    Question, how do you remove the headset icon from the notification tab?

  • dsadada

    delete UnsupportedHeadsetNotifier.apk in system/app

  • John Andrew Santiago

    Week 23 – June 3~June 9
    Week 24 – June 10~June 16

    I don’t know if I’m right :D

    ~Acro S user on the awesome JB update :DD

  • Ben-Amie Lim

    Still waiting for JB for my ION.

  • VIVEK

    eagerly waiting for jelly bean in INDIA as i recently bought my SONY XPERIA S which is soo admiring……….loves SONY

  • Guest

    LOL :D

  • xperia sl

    Excuse,can I know what for the light sensor for Xperia so? There is no any auto brightness settings.

  • disqus_08T17DzMHr

    Need fixes for Acro S too we having also bugs….. If Acro S can’t use a lag free 1080p recording then whats the use of 12mp cam in JB

  • Wolver

    Is there any new Jelly Bean firmware certified for xperia SL ?

  • syed

    u r right. then if u cover the sensor with ur hand, u will noticea slight dimming of the screen. if u uncover it to any light source, u will notice that the brightness is instantly increased by a bit temporarily

  • roobs

    it has been certified for the SL as well :)

  • Akash Tadmare

    So, a new version of JB is going to come out in sometime – as said by Sony. So, the ones who have flashed will get it as a notification? Or do they flash again ?

  • Dhiman Ghosh

    Flash it, man. It’s worth the risk.

  • gizmomp

    2g edge speed internet fix ? Maybe :-)

  • Electrifying Krish

    I didn’t still receive jb update itself still in India Chennai dude when will I get that bug fix then
    omg Sony

  • Quark Gluon

    Yes. If you have ambient light sensor on your phone and you cannot find the setting, it means it’s always on. You can turn it off by applying some mods, but you will have to manually change your brightness way more often.

  • Grig
  • adel

    will we get any jelly bean update at all here in Australia?

  • Fuad123

    Backup & restore app don’t work such as( media files_ downloaded apps with data)and it just work for system app data.
    Please fix it.

  • Udayan

    Ah, so SONY’s giving some love to Xperia S. Nice nice.

  • Ben-Amie Lim

    thanks dude.

  • xzzz

    i thought the .200 update is out just to make xperia S user stop whining about the JB update, but actually it was not ready yet. And the real updates is .211

  • Walkalone

    Im with Crazy Johns and have it all ready! Use PC companion. Got it this morning.

  • Augusta

    just about time! Will be release around week 23-24 so it would be half june right? Next week hopefully.

  • Oscar

    Dear sony if you want to release a perfet rom plz perform these:

    1-wifi issue

    2-bug in face unlock that sometimes should push power button twice for unlock

    3-empty rom is the same as ICS that have just 200 mb free

    4-data transfer does not work

    5-full hd film recording is laggy

  • Jb Aus

    what is your SI number? I havent got it yet

  • xperiasluser

    please also solve the battery problem which is draining very fast

  • Walkalone

    SI 1257-6735

  • Augusta

    You won’t get any notif from update centre. You will have to update via pc companion or flash it using latest flashtool. Am gonna wait for official FTF file and flash it.

  • roobs

    dude just download the ftf file and use flashtool and voila, you have jelly bean!

  • Augusta

    Use for taking pictures, its the use of camera. lol

  • Daniel

    Xperia S,SL, acro S users at least got the jelly bean update. ION users did get nothing yet!

  • Anatoliy

    Hope fast battery drain will be fixed in .211

  • XP_owner

    What about the new firmware (bug fixes) for Xperia P?????
    JB for Xperia S was released 30 may, for Xperia P – 24 april…
    so XP owners should have the update EARLIER than XS.

  • fried_egg

    the battery life is very poor. I am losing 10% an hour. sort of worrying as I will soon go on holiday and I don’t think it will last the journey (it did last year but I wasn’t seeing this sort of battery drain). it might be because I see a number rather than just a chart in the info bar, but its faster regardless of any extra mental reason. camera lags, and some times the “swish” lags which means you end up selecting the wrong item or even sending the one you wanted into the delete bin

  • Mike

    What are the disadvantages from using flash-tool to install JB on my phone ??? if sony install further updates can i get them normally or do i have to use flash-tool every time a new update comes out ?

  • Vicky

    how to check the serial no in XS ??
    becoz i have different SL no than everybody sharing here…its starts with CBW

  • SSyar

    where is JB ,.,.
    we got it.. got it.,.,
    oohh bugs bugss bugggsssss
    Sony.,. giving a fix in 2 – 3 weeks.,.,.

  • Jb Aus

    that is odd mine is SI 1257-6322

  • Jb Aus

    SI number and Serial is located behind the battery door. It is the big white sticker.

  • Fei Long

    There’s a risk in flashing O_O ?????

  • jayden

    why cant i get it if im in Australia and in also with crazy johns ?

  • adel

    what about the new updates, will i get them ota if i use flashtool to update to jb?

  • Putra

    It means this week? YES! So far new JB update is good enough for me.. <3 Sony…

  • Alex Damer

    Just flash offical JB FTF via Flashtool. This is working for locked Bootloader, too! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2302569

  • zeoxzy

    i don’t think so. It’s just bug fixes

  • boosook

    Try this: open google maps, go into settings, disable all options related to localization. You don’t need to do this system-wide, just into maps. Check again (leave your phone in airplane mode during the night and see if the battery drain persists). This solved for me. If it doesn’t work, download “better battery stats”, plug the phone and charge it and unplug it before going to bed. When you wake up in the morning, check the alive/deep sleep ratio: when you don’t use the phone, it must be able to go in deep sleep for 98% of the time or something like that. If you notice that the phone isn’t going in deep sleep mode, check the kernel wakelocks and partial wakelocks to understand who’s preventing the cpu from sleeping (check the app website for more detailed information).

  • SXS

    Fuck of Dude. We are Flagship, so sit in a corner with the JB You got and be considerate for it.

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Dmitry’s plan to divide and conquer amongst NXT owners is working…damn him!

  • Subrat Tiwari

    No update for xperia s in india… :(

  • DoucheyTuesday

    They’re the best bugs that money can buy.. You should salute that Russian guy.

  • Dany

    Well, that was fast…

  • Juraj Chahine

    june 5 and a released new firmware, and still no JB yet for me .. it’s taking a little bit to long ..

  • surethom

    HOPEFULLY this is why most of the UK has not received Jelly bean Yet, I hope this comes to …Si 1257-3114 Soon.

  • Martin Ambre

    Review after JB Update on Acro S

    My SIM Card gets undetected after sometime… after the update :(
    fix it… always have to start Airplane mode and switch back ?????

    No burst Mode in Camera :(

    Stamina Mode ????

    The Home Screen keeps on reloading

    Auto Sync button Missing

    Multiselectiion of picture while sending them on apps not available

  • surethom

    Its not really helpful saying week numbers & not dates.
    Week 23 W/C 3rd June
    Week 24 W/C 10th June

  • Utsav Shah

    Please Sony,
    There is Ion too, which was a flagship in some regions.

  • namusa

    Read somewhere – JB for Ion in the third or fourth week of June.

  • namusa

    Tried repairing?

    And the main Auto-Sync button has been removed from JB firmware itself.

  • Oscar

    Dear sony if you want to release a perfet rom .211 plz perform these problms and solve them:

    1-wifi & GPS issue (it just work in airplane mode !!!!!!!!!)

    2-bug in face unlock that sometimes should push power button twice for unlock

    3-empty rom is the same as ICS that have just 200 mb free

    4-full hd film recording is laggy

    5-battery drain so fast

  • namusa

    Probably you’d get the .211 version directly. And probably that’s why we haven’t got the .200 version – Probably!

  • Kiran D S

    yet to receive Jelly bean update in INDIA……

  • Seub

    Xperia TX JB VS. Xperia S JB , Total Ram are same 1GB. why, free ram are difference. I hope battery and free ram are optimize like Xperia TX.

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    ‘Cause there are no 1GB in Xperia S, it’s 736 or something like that.

  • APai

    huh ? what do you mean 736 ?
    are you confusing it with free ram?

  • roobs

    yeah, i think so

  • XP_owner

    ‘Flagship’? hahahahaha. Good joke, dick. Flagship is now Xperia Z.

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    No, there is theory, that it doesn’t have 1GB as it stated.

  • Shehab Khaled

    There’s no bugs on the update but the battery it drains very fast and the exdended battery mode doesn’t do any new thing

  • Flash

    If someone found a room version 6.2.B.0.211 Official for europe can be install with flashtool, share the link pls!! :D

  • Walkalone

    If the ICS update is anything to go by last year, and someone else may like to verify, but the Vodafone blog guy mentioned they only have a certain number of upgrade slots at any one time, to help ease congestion, so keep trying, its a great update!

  • Walkalone

    and its a Crazy Johns handset? or a Vodafone one?

  • Andrei

    Next week is week 23 and 24 after that.

  • Andrew D

    No Stamina on this version.
    Charging the battery takes for ever.
    I wish they had the stamina installed cause when the battery goes down to 14% it says to use the stamina, which theres is no stamina

  • Lucian

    6.2.B.0.211 is also certified for Xperia SL and Xperia acro S

  • AnasDaiban

    what about the ME update !! i didn’t receive the update until now !! what the hell is going on !! come on SONY !! hurry up pllllllllllllllllz :(

  • AnasDaiban

    yah ,, is there WIFI direct exist !!?

  • AnasDaiban

    still waiting for JB for my XS :(

  • APai

    oh ok, clueless about that

  • Kima

    + volume up button sometimes stop to work

  • Kima

    I hope will get it till 14th june…

  • Kima

    I don’t thinl it’s gonna be this week, maybe next week…

  • sfdg

    Dafuq? How is this funny?

  • ctck

    There is no theory or a conspiration.
    These have an 1GB ram chip. From these 1000mb, a whole chunk is used for hardware, like hw video decoding/encoding, gpu, android surfaceflinger, camera and audio hw dec/enc.
    Don’t ask for more total ram because then then phone will not be able to do some things.

    The laggy 1080p video, is the fault of buggy libraries though.

  • Kima

    data transfer working for me, battery drain is ok for me, I just got laggy recording in 1080p and volume up button problem, sometimes it stop to work… Try to do a clean install or repair via Pc Companion.

  • nice

    oh whatcout we got a bad over here :D what’s going on now? so many months no updates and they keep rolling

  • Jasonwsc

    Wait there is a Xperia Ion? Lol JK, but is your phone the international or AT&T version?

  • Kima

    Yes, I notice that too, hope they gonna fix it…

  • Mac

    I noticed something seriously funny in new JB(.200). When the battery level was lowere(14%) it asked me to put my phone in STAMINA mode to increase battery life.. Any one else noticed this?

  • Kima

    everyone lol

  • Mac

    Seriously LOL. I think this error will be updated in .211 :P

  • elmeu coreu

    Can’t understand why after been waiting 6 months ¡¡¡ Uptade seems to be done in a hurry (??)

  • Toni

    That is FALSE. THIS is week 23 (3-9 june) and NEXT is week 24 (10-16 June).

  • rus_media

    Sony took some software internees for XS JB. These dumbs killed lot off times on this issue to release a bugs free version. Now we can see Sony’s ability on software

  • Arne

    the ME update :P haha. did’t received it as wel :)

  • dsadada

    International version

  • badflyone

    I’m frensh. With my XPS I don’t receive the original pictures who my Friends send.

    WTF ?

  • Bartolo Trovato

    Still waiting for the first jb update for xperia s….do you remember italy?

  • nidou bossy

    This page have already announced the official rollout of Xperia S JellyBean WORLD WIDE and It won’t keep doing it for every individual’s area/place/country. so, if u didn’t get ur JB update yet, stop nagging like a bitch about Xperia JB update, u don’t think the rollout will land to all Xperia S ever existed at the same time, just be patient or hit ur head in the wall if u won’t… It’ll come to your place either way.

  • Unknown

    Nidou since the update is released a weak ago, Xperia S owners wont have patience to wait for it especially that some people got it…others no !

  • fried_egg

    cheers, i shall give some of that ago…

  • nidou bossy

    they still alive without JB update and this won’t put an end to their life… the excitement will wash away once they’ll get that JB update!

  • adam

    ive experienced this, u have to restart phone to get it working !! :/ so annoying

  • hafezalayat

    this week is the 23rd week. ends on 10th of june . and the next week wiil be 24th week so the update will be rolling out in 10 days maximum. for me i will wait for the official update . .

  • Antonio Rabuzin

    XS is 2012 flagship idiot -.-

  • Kima

    yes, so annoying… but they gonna fix that it with upcoming firmware .211

  • adam

    they better do!! when is this firmware coming ? camera lags when u choose effect !! try that

  • hafezalayat

    we are in the third day of the 23rd week now ,

  • surethom

    Most of the UK has not even received Jelly bean yet, hopefully Sony was waiting for this bug fix before sending out the updated jelly bean to the rest of the users?????

  • Kima

    I think it will rollout next week… they said on 23-24 week

  • ManRaj

    Good.
    Main fixes that we want–
    1) 1080p bug should be fixed
    2) 2g data bug
    3) Batteryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
    4) I didn’t have any problem with the Wifi but some people are having that.
    5) Remove “Stamina mode” thing when battery is 14% or less. It is irritating since we aren’t provided with that feature :/

  • Techie Monstaaa

    IS THEEEREEE SOMEBODEEEEYYYY TO GIIVEE MEEE AAA CHANGELOG

  • 皓 無

    is existenZ good enough ? i think that is little more battery drains compare with 4.04

  • hafezalayat

    that’s right you’ve got the point . sony rolled out the update and then stop it to fix some bugs and re-rolling of the update in 10 days as it said

  • Xperia ion

    Where’s jelly bean updation for Xperia ion hspa???
    this s my last sony device
    even galaxy s2 got jelly bean months ago
    I preferred ion coz it have one of the best display

  • Utsav Shah

  • Antonio Rabuzin

    JB for Xperia Arc ??? ….ask Sony, not me

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

    Has anyone else noticed that when you go into Google Now the cursor is *always* in the search box by default and therefore forces the keyboard to display? I always have to hit back once or twice to see all the cards which is slightly frustrating. I don’t know if this is a Sony or Google Now/Search app issue. I typically launch from the home screen

  • SonySuck

    I think sony may already knew that the bugs still exists, but still rollout .200 to confirm their word?

  • Tycho Van Malderghem

    dont ask for that stupid stamina mode popup to go away ask for the staminamina mode itself if your expectations are so high

    I don’t even know how Sony could’ve given us Jelly Bean without being able to record 1080p video (basically).
    I guess everyone was complaining about the release that Sony felt pushed.

  • Sarab

    what STAMINA mode do is: turn off data, wifi and applications.

    What “Enhanced Battery” option do is: turn off data, wifi and applications.

    so they are the same thing, you can say you have STAMINA in your device.

    Sorry for my english.

  • Sarab

    update it using flashtool, is the same and is so easy!

  • Sarab

    2011 flagship was a “Sony ERICSSON”, plus they have an 18 month support frame or something like that.

  • Senay Mehreteab

    have not HDR, superior auto and stamina mode so i hope to fix camera and battery life in Xperia S 4.1.2 jb !!!

  • Sarab

    Enhanced BAttery mode do the same Sh&% as STAMINA mode! people should stop complaining about it, 1080p works fine for me you should add as number 6) HDMI to TV with poor quality

  • hfgjh

    Then can someone explaine it? Because imo it doesnt fucking make sense and I think people “vote up” just because its a f-ing meme.

  • Thiago Guerreiro Bastos

    Grrrrrrrr. That piss me off too.

  • Guest

    Yes ” already release”

  • KubsiJack

    Yes, ” already release”

  • Thiago Guerreiro Bastos

    I hope they fix the wifi problem.

    Mine only work if I restart the phone. And just works for couple of hours. After that the connection drops every minute (not kidding!).

    Something that piss me off a lot too is that when I restart the phone the keyboard that I use (swiftkey) is disabled and the oficial from sony is put by default. It’s annoying have to go to the settings and change it all the time.

    Fastcapture FINALLY it’s working. And I’m loving it. Don’t have nothing to complain about the camera. Even the full hd is working flawless

  • hjgjh

    Right back at you :)

  • Albin

    3g -> it was working fine until today, it just stopped, went to network settings and tried reconnecting to my network with a little 3G icon next to it, 3G then worked for about not more than a minute and stopped completely after that
    also. why is the color of the UI pink in my walkman, only when theres no album art tho
    i updated to jb 2.6.2013.

  • http://www.facebook.com/M.khired Mohammed Khired

    hallow Khired ,
    JB updates released on 29/5/2013 according to sony’s website .
    till now updates are not getting by half of the world .
    what sony is doing ?

    You got new lockscreen, new launcher, new Sony apps (phone, messages, album, movies, walkman (new sound enhancements) etc.), notification toggles, extended standby mode, myXperia, Xperia Link, new camera (better scene recognition, picture effects, preview, faster auto focus, ability to capture photos while recording etc.), clearphase, magnifier for text selection etc. etc.

    I just don’t know what to say any more.. First people were complaining about when update will arrive, and now it’s like the update is nothing because of some features that didn’t make the cut.. New update is already on the way and more complaining..

    If they would include everything that Z have they would complain why isn’t there new transparent UI or LED effects from SP or something else..

  • Lucian

    when you open camera there is a button in top left corner that says SCN AUTO. press it and select video camera. Now press menu and you have options to select resolution, stabilization etc. ;)

  • Paulo Giraud Ribeiro

    Cheers, mate! I feel actually so stupid for not checking there before :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/M.khired Mohammed Khired

    “better scene recognition” ?

    do u have XS ? or u just defending sony hopelessly as usual ?

  • Paulo Giraud Ribeiro

    Agreed! Small Apps are great as well! Apart from my battery which is lasting a bit less, the rest of the update is working great and I did not experience any of the described bugs… still need to get home and check the HDMI connection but I rarely use that since I usually just play everything via wifi home network

  • Lucian

    oh yea totally forgot about small apps. another great feature ;)

  • Paulo Giraud Ribeiro

    It should only show the text when you first start your phone. After first unlock, it should stop

  • Vicky

    thanx man….but i have the same SL no as some other guy on sony forum from UK…how come 2 phones with same Sl no ??

  • Lucian

    Yes, I have XS. Let me explain “better scene recognition”: in ICS I always had normal mode and changed manually because scene detection was working really slow.
    Now in JB scene recognition works better than ICS, much faster.
    I said this because a lot of people complained about XS’s JB not having superior auto and I don’t care because regular auto scene selection is improved.

    And I’m not defending, just stating the facts. There were a lot of improvements in Jelly Bean and you can’t deny that. Sure there are also bugs (fullHD recording, quick launch bug, unlocking bug (where power button does nothing and you have to press twice or trice) wi-fi bug(don’t have that luckily), stamina message at 14% and probably some more) but with a fast update to .211 they will probably be gone (hope so).

    With all the new features we received I’m happy and with that fast fix for bugs I’m even happier. If this bug fix would never arrive I would be pissed off too because I use fullHD recording a lot, camera button and quick launch are my daily usages and I can’t use any of these features reliably right now.

  • Kima

    lol :D Paulo play with yr phone :)

  • Paulo Giraud Ribeiro

    I know i know… :/ I got so blind for having both buttons availables (take picture and start REC) that instead of selecting SCN AUTO I was only pressing the “menu” button – and there all you can find is Camera resolution.. cut me some slack, I’ve only had JB for 24 hours :P lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/M.khired Mohammed Khired

    u know that this jb update comes after over year since they released jb.right?

    and all those Sony-fanboys defending sony for this late update claiming that “sony wanna make sure this update is bug-free” !

    and then it’s the update that’s not free from those bugs!

  • Kima

    It’s ok, I’m just kidding :)

  • Kamal

    WE STILL DO NOT HAVE JB UPDATE IN EGYPT !! GRRRRRRRRR

  • Lucian

    Yes I know that, but better late than never. They messed up with all these updates but at least they are working on it and improving it. And in my opinion .211 was meant to rollout from start of June, but they did not want to get trough all of the complains and hate because of delay so they released .200 when they said they will.

    And I was also all furious when we didn’t get the update end of 2012 or start of 2013 but where does it get you? Nothing happens, nothing changes, all you do is feel bad. And now we got Jelly Bean, bug fixes are on the way and past is past..

  • Ü77

    Yes jb works fine in Estland, thank you! Some apps went nuts but they recovered later after punching them. Can’t understand only the easyest thing- how to add own mp3 song under some contact? Only Sony own ringtones are shown. Own song list from memory was under some button up on right corner but it gone now:/ any ideas or did I missed some line somewhere?

  • Joe Merol

    No, they are not.

    Stamina allows you to whitelist apps, and saves your IP, so you can reconnect to a mobile network much faster, effectively making it a better JuiceDefender.

    Do your homework before you run your mouth, moron.

    is it another definition for stamina mod ? or is it…?

    i mean we (Xperia s owners ) are one big ass joke!

    XD

  • Roko

    As I said on Sony Xperia Support forum I suggest to everyone who didn’t received 6.2.B.0.200 update yet to see list of bugs first and then consider the option to wait until the next update (6.2.B.0.211) because this one is like something between alpha and beta release in my honest opinion. If the next update don’t fix the major bugs then I recommend you to stay on ICS (now I sorry I didn’t made it that way). Sorry for my bad english it’s not my native language.

    They just copy paste jelly bean firmware from xperia z removed few features put in new kernel and libaries then released it probably done in just a day.
    Since their no stamina mode but if low on batery it suggest to enable it which is’t their.
    These bugs really unacceptable but least they try to fix them fast as possible after a release.
    I wish this was also the case for sony xperia tablet s that has been abonded already by sony.

    For Sony, we’re waiting to for the second Jelly Bean update to be made public

  • fried_egg

    charged it to 100%, just unplugging it saw that drop to 99%. anyway, airplane mode & data off, and then didnt touch it for 11 hours. screen said 98% — which means something is eating battery, either poor network signal struggles or data, and under battery only android system and screen stand out and it is not being used “more” than it was under ics… so lets see if with maps turned off from recording location that changes.

    MyXperia? I dont have that one in mine, and I had it in my ICS version.

  • Jerry Berglund

    But its here now. Why be mad. Yes it was bad, but its not anymore. Well the truth seems that the software was done allready last year. But Sony headquartes in Japan scrapt it, because they wanted JB to Zperia Z to be finished first, and they let the software development in Japan work on XS instead. Somehow they didnt make it, so Lund in Sweden had to take over the development from scratch. So no, I dont think they had a year to do this. And it dont really seem to be the fault of developers but more of coperate politics and powerstruggle that made problem.

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

  • Anatoliy

    who cares here about xperia p???

  • 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” button.
    3. “swipe up or down to unlock” on lock screen” is not the best method. 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/home 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 feature is just superb!.
    2. faster when opening apps or settings
    3. loading and scrolling app list in “setting – apps” is very smooth and fast. (even more than new 50 third party apps installed).
    4. the new toggle mode in notification bar is good and innovative. (most of the toggle 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.

    Ps : dear Sony, Read up!!

  • Anatoliy

    I don’t agree with you with point “1. ugly white UI in messaging. (need to roll back to dark/black UI just like on ICS.”

    In sunny day white background is much much more comfortable than black, black ICS was awful and there was impossible to read anything – so that’s why white background is one of the best UI sony solution in JB

  • Augusta

    well whites UI on dialpad and keyboard does a great ones. but “for me” white UI on messaging is just not for me. when you open the msg app or do texting on dark place the screen looks too bright and the background colour of incoming texts (due the original theme pref.) mine is blue, is like “hey everyone wanna see my messages? here you can see it clearly enough to you!?”.lol. for me the UI its just not ellegant, too bright, and too eye catchy. but thats for me..well everyone has diff taste..no big deals.

  • Anatoliy

    In this way when you say “hite UI on messaging is just not for me” does not mean that sony should change it… you can use any custom rom with dark background anyway :) not a big problem…

  • Augusta

    My friend..Should or shouldn’t i dont care just saying my thoughts. Like i said, its just not for me or let me say in simply way, I Don’t Like It. And it doesnt mean i should use custom rom either. Lets people votes or saying what they think about Msgging UI. And i think SONY should considering majority votes as it is customer demands. Cheers!

  • Anatoliy

    If you don’t like – don’t you it. It’s a very simple way my friend.

  • Chaitanya Behara

    Hello , I am from India and I bought my XPERIA S in the month of August 2012. I haven’t received Jelly bean Update for XPERIA S . My friends who own the same mobile received the update .(They bought some months after me i.e. in 2013) . My current Android version still shows 4.0.4 , Build number 6.1.A.2.55. Even though I verify for Software update, it still shows that my phone has the latest software available. could some one who has got some idea reply what might have been the reason. Wouldn’t i be getting Jelly bean update at all ??? :(

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Try checking it with Sony Update Service.

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Or consider putting an option to black or white theme! x)

  • Augusta

    Did you perform clean install ( wiped all data) when update? Try to ‘factory data reset’ this will erase your phne setting, app data, downloaded apps, bookmarks, notes, contacts. So make sure backup your phone first. (no worries data on internal storage/sdcard won’t deleted). After finished reset, go to Setting-Developer options-enabled it-checkbox only “show all ANR’s”. And you may reinstall all your apps. And reboot your phone again. Then see if the issue still there. “show all ANR’s” tells you if there any app crashes or not responding. Hope it helps

  • Augusta

    Hmm fair enough. But it will have bigger size in system, and less available RAM left. Not a best option.
    anyway what would you prefer, white or dark/black?

  • Jhonbert Magana

    When changing the theme on ICS the background changes to different colors, remember? Now if they just replace the 2 color option with black and White. x)

    hahahaha if you such a great UI designer, go and work in SONY :)
    Don’t think that you the smartest here, SONY and other brands does not cares about yours and ours opinions about UI solutions… they have very skillful designers and they very good knowing what’s users need the best nowadays. By the way, it seems that you think too much here :) *no offended :)

  • Augusta

    Ha ha go play with barbies. It fits you. lol

  • Anatoliy

    Dear Augusta any more argument do you have?
    Seems you are not very clever dude :) no work in sony for you :-p

  • hello

    i have wifi problem :(

  • Kazuo Satō

    I have same problem

  • Kazuo Satō

    In PCC try repairing the phone then try to update, it’s worked for some

  • Kazuo Satō

    I think the .200 was released to keep us happy for a while due to all the complaints.
    It says it was built in April on my phone, so I’m guessing the .211 is the real deal.
    Some people at Sony said they didn’t think JB would be released until mid June, I’m think they we’re referring to this update.
    I have a feeling .211 will be mostly bug fixes and possibly the addition of stamina mode because when you go below 15% on the current update it recommends turning on STAMINA mode.

  • Augusta

    Argument? lol! I think you youre the one who took this seriously. don’t call me “dear” pls am not what you think lmao! So youre a clever gay huh? I mean guy? LOL. Do you clever enough not to spam my comment. Go flirt another guy , sorry.

  • Augusta

    Since you’re a clever guy, if you don’t like or disagree with my comments Go tell your mom and sue me then. :-D

  • burrq

    thanks for replying…yes, i performed clean install when update. i already wiped out all my data..so did i need to do it again? or i just tick the “show all ANRSs” in the setting and see if the problem happening again or not?

  • burrq

    thanks for replying…yes, i performed clean install when update. i already wiped out all my data..so did i need to do it again? or i just tick the “show all ANRSs” in the setting and see if the problem happening again or not?

  • Augusta

    I Can’t promise its 100% will fixed your problem, but most of crashing or restarting issues would perform ‘factory reset’ or do ‘repair phone’ via pc companion. But for now you may enable the ‘show all ANR’s’ and see if there any bckground apps that might caused the phone crashed and restarting issue.

  • sato

    is this firmware update is avaliable for sl also…. cause everywhere they mentioning s only!!!! can any one help me!!!1

  • Nima Azarbayjany

    Repair your phone using pc companion. Follow the instructions well

  • burrq

  • Augusta

    Make sure the pc comp. detect and repairs to curently JB firmware version .200. Do Not roll back to ICS .55.

    Guys I have recently updated my Xperia SL to jelly bean and I was expecting the multi window feature 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??

  • Anatoliy

    Dear Augusta :) Control yourself! You talking a lot about nothing… I have not read any “smart” word or phrase from you. just pathetic jokes from mentally retarded person :)
    So, have a good night my dear

    p.s: you can write again your shit here with tones of not funny “lol” and “:-D”

  • Ferrari

    Guys. I just loved the update.
    I’m in the US and installed the generic version of the update.
    The phone is just awesome. Wi-fi working! (I didn’t test GPS so far)
    I compared with the GS4, and the interface in the Xperia S JB is much more pleasant!

    I don’t get all the complains….

  • Mart

    since i used JB, i notice the battery drain so fast compared with ICS. am i the only one who fell this way???

  • Augusta

    Ha ha Go f*ck yourself you dic*head

  • Augusta

    Ha ha are you mad? Just go fck yourself you dickhead and dont be smart ass to me, look at you

  • Ujjobbágy Attila

    Xperia S/SL doesn’t have multi window feature, what are you talking about?

  • Saurabh Gadkari

    That is so unfair!!!
    It is jelly bean’s one of the most highlighted features and after so many days of waiting I came to know that it is not for xperia s/sl.. :(
    I am aware of small apps..

  • Guest

    Multi window is not a jelly bean feature, it is a Samsung feature on Galaxy S4, s3, note2.

  • Ujjobbágy Attila

    See the above comment, “guest” is me just something went wrong.

  • Anatoliy

    Same to me Mart

  • Anatoliy

    Dear Augusta! You make me smile when I’m reading your post)))))
    Have a nice day my dear! Hope to hear soon some “smart” things from you

    Updated my Xperia S to jelly bean 200. Its like they say laggy and has bugs. What really annoys me is that they had a good looking phone and messaging app, which they reskinned (partially) to bright white (why?), which by the looks of it isn;t readable and looks like its mashed up and is incomplete and changed just to feel like its JB! I guess i’ll have to wait for this update!! Sony..sigh!

  • 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 them 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 upgrade 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’.
