ZR 4.2.2Sony Mobile had stated that the Xperia ZR (C550X) Android 4.2.2 firmware update will roll out in early August, but it appears that some users already have it. Firmware version 10.3.1.A.0.244 is the same build that hit Xperia Z and Xperia ZL handsets yesterday. The update is out in Norway and is likely to hit other regions soon. If you have the Xperia ZR and have the Android 4.2.2 update let us know which region your handset is from and what changes you’ve noticed.

ZR 4.2.2

Thanks LilliApril!

    Damn sake. Why couldn’t the Xperia Tablet Z receive it now. Guaranteed to be a long wait for it.

  • Feanor

    Why you people complain even if there is finally concrete evidence that Sony has massively improved update times?

  • sony

    Xperia SP please

  • Anon

    Because the update takes more work for tablets. Sony has to integrate their UI with the changes Android 4.2 introduced in the tablet layout (for example the navigation and notification bars). In addition they have to make sure the multi-user functionality works fine too.

    It just takes longer since there’s more to do. As simple as that. It won’t be long anymore now though.

    And don’t forget about us (S, SL, AcroS, Ion) !

    GSMARENA claims that there is High Res Image Snapping in Non-HDR videos in the New Update…. I haven’t got that change and only 1MP image can be Snapped as usual… Has any one noticed such Changes ?? India By the way !!!!

    When this update coming to India???

  • Pretty sure Sony said they were jumping straight to 4.3 for the SP. Or at least confirmed that 4.3 was coming to that device. I’d assume at this point they’ll skip over 4.2 and focus development to the latest and greatest.

  • aa

    Check the way they phrased it:

    “we’ll make 4.3 available for: Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP and Xperia Z Ultra…
    We’re also looking at uplifting some of our other devices running 4.1 direct to 4.3”

    “some of our >>>other<<< devices"

    I think development for 4.2.2 is already deep in and it's not worth it to dump everything and go develop 4.3, resetting the 6+ month wait for a new android version update

  • Kenneth

    I have got the update (Denmark) and i’m looking into the changes now.

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Anyone frm India ??

  • RamyRamz69

    I know this has nothing to do with the Xperia ZR, but the Xperia Ion LT28H is finally getting updated in the Middle East and other parts.

  • Kaloyskie

    Hope they will include our xperia firmware range on the said update this august.

  • More noise in photos now, I prefer last build.

  • Ryan

    Correct me if I’m wrong. I thought Qualcomm dropped 4.2.2 update plan for Snapdragon S3 SoCs. So probably no 4.2.2 for S, Ion and Acro S. Gonna buy Honami to change my Acro S.

  • Dmitri Dmi

    Got update in Russia

  • AsadMulla

    You know dam right. (in an Indian accent). (I am Indian so its not racist) LOL

    if xperia zr going to get jb 4.3, im going to get this phone soon, as im current user of galaxy nexus, the jb 4.3 is enough for me,as this time 4.3 version definitely speed up the device, the whole ui feel slipery smooth on just a dual core 1.2ghz , and the battery life do improves alot than on 4.2.2. Imagine this on a 2300mah battery for xperia zr.

    All I know is since I updated to 4.2 yesterday, my phone has been chewing up battery life even on stamina mode like never before. Seriously, should it it take half a full batterty just to listen to 1 40 minute album?!
