in Android, Firmware, Xperia SP, Xperia T

Xperia SP_About_12.1.A.0.256If you have a Sony Xperia SP (C5302/C5303) or Xperia T (LT30p) with an unlocked bootloader then you can now download the leaked Android 4.3 firmware update that we reported on yesterday. For the Xperia SP, this leaked ROM relates to build version 12.1.A.0.256, whilst for the Xperia T it relates to build number 9.2.A.0.278.

The leak comes courtesy of DooMLoRD and follows a bunch of screenshots for both devices that were leaked last night. DooMLoRD confirms that the firmware was for brown (developer) devices but he managed to get them to boot on red (consumer) devices. Click the source links for further information.

  • roeshak

    That’s really good to see xperia blog clamping down on bigots. Also, it would be good to clamp down on fanboys who attack others personally for saying anything critical about Sony.
    They’ve already ruined xda, it’s high time action was taken against people who insult others personally when all they’ve done is say something they don’t like about devices or Sony in general.
    If someone hasn’t insulted you personally, you’ve got no right to insult them because they said something critical about your beloved brand. You can disagree with their comments without getting personal. I’m aiming this at fanboys because they start all the wars

  • Leo

    TX even no certificated

  • Leo

    ur screen will upside down

  • Vitali

    Can I try it on the xperia S somehow? :(

  • dead_lion

  • Danne

    Can anyone tell me the outlook difference between between Xperia SP(Brown Devices) and Xperia SP(Consumer Device)???

  • Indian_Patriot

    Thank you ! @XperiaBlog:disqus
    put a ban on ’em ! go ahead !
    Thx for taking care of our feelings :)

  • XperiaBlog

    We agree wholeheartedly. Obviously, as a Sony-based site we understand there will always be banter – after all many that come here are fanboys. That doesn’t mean we should be rude to others with a different point of view. After all, that’s what a good discussion is all about.

    yes I knew :) Checked your Euro Trip pics and “Chaos” pics on FB :) It must be fun :P

  • JLol

    Do you suffer from multiple personality disorder or something?

  • panagi?tis

    I wish there was an ftf file. For some reason I can’t root my device with the easy root from doomlord and it isn’t a locked one.

  • I heard that the official 4.3 update was just released (about 2 hrs ago from me posting this). Can anyone confirm? I don’t have any of those phones. Only got Z
    According to my source, says that it’s was just released but still processing through the server, it’s going to be slow for now until Monday.

  • Can’t believe someone had the balls to say something derogatory to DooMLoRD. He is twice the man they will ever be.

  • Abdul

    Does any one know if this update fixes the wifi issue….thank you

  • naru
  • Lukas

    Don’t you dare!? they are totally different devices

  • roeshak

    Thanks. We’re all Sony fans in one way or another but some folks take their love for Sony too far.
    Open discussion is great but there is really no need for personal insults over phones or Sony for that matter.
    We should be able to discuss the good and the bad of these devices without some becoming so aggressive.
    No device is prefect, let’s not censure discussion about flaws like they do at. Xda

  • Xperian

    This is Better than 4.1.2

    thanx a lot for rom.

  • sid3091

    how in god’s name do you manage to find the time to do so much for the community!?
    I was going to ask you to help out with the Xperia ZL but i think you’ve got your hands full here.

  • Gaelex

    And Raj from The big bang theory is awesome

  • Anargyros Varthalitis

    Finaly Wi Fi is fixed!!!!!!!!!!

  • Gorga Naibaho

    Well the definition of bigotry is getting more and more vague these days. That said, free speech goes both ways. People who voice complaints about Sony etc are entitled to say those things but the fanboys also have the right to voice their opinions, however such discussions have too often devolved into frantic name calling, which in the end may discourage any kind of discussion whatsoever because both sides of the aisle gets afraid to voice their opinions in fear of rudeness from the opposing party. So in the end it all comes down to each poster: would they be honorable commenters even with the Online Mask of Anonimity?

    I agree with your second paragraph completely. I love Sony’s Xperia devices but honest criticism to their shortcomings is always welcome. However the kind of fanboy-ism that you spoke of will always exist as long there is an emotional attachment to handheld devices and brands. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also the opposite of fanboys – I believe the term would be haters. These people hate Sony devices for example just for the sake of hating. And there is no shortage of both kinds of people on these comment sections.
