    I can’t believe that a low tier phone gets updates and bugfixes before the ex flagship Xperia S, which is still bugged to shit.

  • clewis

    Xperia s is almost a year and a half old, xperia l is only a few months what do you expect?

  • jag

    move on please.

  • lolsomany

    currently downloading :p

  • hans

  • Dencille Cherian

    exactly…old phones have very less chance of getting updates.

  • jumbo3220

    tell us the camera quality improvements and if support USB OTG after this update and overall experience

  • Alvin z

    Camera improved significantly, especially front Camera…
    Don’t know about otg, it fixes most bus this phone have recently….

  • Alvin z

    l mean most bug, not most bus…

  • Billbond4

    No otg support and the Google android device manager is now installed.
    Class 10 microsd support is added. Multitouch improved

  • michaeldim96

  • sinhue

    sony xperia L has nothing confirmed on an update to Android 4.3, but Sony stated that studies the possibility of moving from android 4.1 to android 4.3 on some phones xperia guess the L may be among those telephones, English is not very good then I rely on google translator, an apology if I have good syntax

  • michaeldim96

    A new firmware has certified one month ago!! When it gDonna roll out?

  • Jay

    Download & Update your firmware via PC Companion

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker


    The reason 2011 Xperias can’t get JB is low amount of RAM.

  • Suresh Dragger

    yeah! it’s good for using

  • Joe

    hmmm…… why does updating with pc companion download the entire 450+MB file.
    my internet connection is too slow. I think I’ll have to go to the service centre to update which is 35 kms from where I stay :(


    if you are using power button to end the call, you will notice that notification light wont stop until you make an other call and end the call through screen, a new bug in this update :(

  • Prashant Kumar

    great! i updated latesst firmware and now the games that were lagging previously are now running buttery smooth…… thanx sony for the update

  • Edit button is your friend.

  • Herman Cruz

    Oh my I hope they fixed the still photos. It seems upon fixing laggy video recording and front camera turns to black and white during low lights situations are fixed but the sharpness of still photos are gone. Will be waiting for more updates

  • Herman Cruz

    Awaiting for the next update because this update has problems with the sharpness of camera especially indoors. I’m back to 15.0.A.1.36

  • Ricardo

    Please, help me, friend.

    I’ve updated my C2104 – 15.0.a.1.31 to 2.17 using Flash Tool…

    But now my 3g connection doesn’t work…
    I’d like to restore my previous firmware version but it seems impossible… (2.17 is not available in PC Companion here in Brazil, but when I restore, it always restore as if 2.17 was the original version)

    What should I do?


  • Herman Cruz Jr.

    Will be waiting for camera fixes. 15.0.A.1.36 has better sharpness of camera

  • Herman Cruz Jr.

    Maybe the reason why there is still no update for Xperia L is because they are prepairing for 4.3… CROSSFINGERS :D

  • Herman Cruz Jr.

    you sure you have used the same model C2104 or C2105?

  • trevo

    These updates do nothing to fix the serious bugs in XL. XL is the most buggy, crappy piece of work that sony has put it’s name on. I’m going to name it XLB (brick). Battery indicator giving wrong readings, internal memory problems, phones shutting off, rebooting for no reason, wifi problems, headphone problems. In short XLB sucks!!!!!!! My bet is on a badly produced and faulty motherboard. Way to rip off people Fony.

  • trevo

    Updating and restoring do nothing to solve the problems. Shitty hardware from a shitty company.

  • therves

    I cant update my xl via ota even flashtool… Help me please…. :'(

  • therves

    I cant update mu xl via OTA or even flashtool.. Help me pease…. :'(
