Xperia SP Android 4.3 update starts rolling with build 12.1.A.0.266 [Update]

by XB on 11/02/2014

in Android, Featured Content, Xperia SP


Xperia SP Android 4.3_12.1.A.0.266Sony Xperia SP owners your time has come. The Android 4.3 firmware update has started to roll out in the form of build number 12.1.A.0.266. At the moment the update has only hit Australia, but expect availability to widen over the coming days. We haven’t got our hands on Android 4.3 yet, so if you’ve managed to download it, please post impressions and pictures in the comments below.

Update: Users who have tried to update their handsets using the Australian customisation number in build.prop, have ended up re-downloading Android 4.1.2. This could be a premature release from Sony, which was subsequently pulled. Assume that is the case until we have evidence of someone actually downloading and installing this update.

Update 2: Ignore us, it’s real check out the screenshot below. For more pictures click here.

Update 3: The FTF firmware file can be downloaded from here. [Thanks DooM!]

  • SYG

  • Rinku Singh

    Lol

  • lovebmw

    It’s soooo funny, they will update to 4.3 and realize nothing much changed and feel stupid about it

  • Caio Faria

    OMG! We want Xperia T 4.3 NOOOW!!!

  • Newbie13

    Now We Can Gladly say… This is post is for Xperia SP users… To those Air-headed Flagships users who think there 1st in line, Screw u… More power to us Sony’s Budget wise Users… Now we Whine for 4.4 coz we deserve equality of updates… and yeah we or I keep on believing to that…. ^_^

  • laci_csk

    How about equality in spent money.

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Still no update in India! Meanwhile, please sign this petition to get an official “move apps to sd card” functionality from Sony….. Keep signing and sharing my petition as we all have at some point felt the need for it especially with phones with 4GB or 8GB internal storage!

    https://www.change.org/petitions/sony-we-customers-want-a-move-apps-to-sd-card-functionality-added-to-all-our-sony-phones-via-software-update#share

    Thank you to all those who help me to help themselves! Hope it becomes a part of kitkat!

  • zeb

    when it will reach in india?

  • Chris

    Ok, now WHERE THE F**CK IS THE Z1 4.4 UPDATE? Sony you suck, you care more about lower end phones than higher end phones. I’m never buying Sony again. *proceeds to buy Z2 when it comes out*.

  • daniel

    The best news for today til now.

  • xperiaDROID

    You don’t know what is joking do you? Stupid founded.

  • Chris

    I’m guessing it’ll be out very very soon. The SP is last year’s midrange so it makes sense to have come before the T,V etc. I’ll give it 1-2 more days hopefully.

  • laci_csk

    yeah midrange before flagship right?

  • Pingback: Смартфон Sony Xperia SP начал получать долгожданное обновление до Anroid 4.3 Jelly Bean | IT-Info()

  • zeb

    hope the updates come tommorow n should have better camera quality coz sp camera is too bad

  • AA :P

    t/v were from the earlier marriage with ericsson, so step treatment is expected. but dont worry, we’ll get 4.3, our first “real” update!

  • Chris

    Please don’t whine about 4.4. You’re probably not going to get it, might as well accept that now.

  • laci_csk

    I dont worryed, I’m happy.

  • Carl

    And FINALLY SP owners can shut up about the update and no longer spam other blog posts :P. I expect the T and V updates to come out sometime in this week as well, then they can shut up too, until all the KitKat complaining starts :P.

  • xperiaDROID

    Thanks Sony!

  • starkiller306

    now all we need is something to shut up the T & V users :D

  • Patrol619

    For you maybe yes, because on your Z1 (or Z, whatever) you had almost all the features on your previous firmware.

  • laci_csk

    agree

  • Raone

    http://www.sonymobile.com/au/software/phones/xperia-sp/ sera que foi lancado mesmo ? Duvidoso hein

  • lovebmw

    perhaps it makes sense, but not enough to start all the classless campaign the uneducated started.

  • AA :P

    the SP FW is from 29th jan, since T/V also have the same date for their respective FW on the same date, we should be seeing it released anyday now. …then for the rest of us in different parts of the world to hit our shores!

  • AA :P

    we should have a separate section for incoming fw, and a whack a mole game included, some of that rage will be channelized :D

  • bilet

    its still early feb, sony keep their words.

  • mato1168

    i agree too

  • xperiaz1fan

    now yall can stfu omfg wheres kitkat update for my z1 tho??? damn u sony!!!

  • Newbie13

    Even if the New Generation of Xperia 2014 goes live… we can still have 4.4… its just a probability u say… it always has its chances… and thats were we thrive… Coz we have better things to do with extra money than to buy something classy but has same functionality with our budget phones though less & delayed is included in the package… The world is still on its transition when it comes to technology advancement. Not everything That says “Flagship” is worth wanting… Put that in your Mind…

  • Caio Faria

    E eu esperando para o Xperia T -_-

  • Vishal Soni

    India ?????

  • Raghu

    When for xperia L :'(

  • rossi

    it will still take many weeks to reach different parts of the world.
    does any one knows how they release updates i mean any particular order do they follow??????

  • Chris

    I understand that, but trust me, it’s not going to happen. The HTC One Mini and Galaxy S4 are both stuck with 4.2/4.3, the Xperia SP will get the same. It’s not about what’s right, it’s about what’s going to happen, and I can guarantee you that the kitkat update will officially not come for you guys. I’m just saying it so you don’t get your hopes up.

  • Guest

    Thank god! Now all of you can STFU…

  • Chris

    Yeah, 2013 midrange before 2012 flagship.

  • MarkLastiwka

    No shit. This has been the single most annoying thing about Xperia Blog posts. Odd how it’s really only SP owners that are this annoying…

  • Vishal Soni

    reply ??

  • pleko

    Strange, it isn’t on the official website, Sony Care….. From Hungary

  • Newbie13

    As Long as there are no Official post that its never gonna happen. we/I still have hope but not that high now. “Let us just have it, Let us take our chances. Let us get it the hard way…” This coming words might get ugly but for now this is the only way i can express it… “Your not the Right person to shove it to our faces that it will never gonna happen.” no hard feelings by the way… #PositivityIsAChoice #JudgeMeNot #TakingChances

  • techielover

    is it confirmed for UK.USA,india yet lol
    cmon whiners any one got it yet ?

  • francesco

    there is people like me that used 4.3 and realized that there is app ops full support, that the interface of the launcher is updated and smoother, the ram managing is better, camera has newer feature, walkmann is updated.

    So is so funny that people that doesn’t know nothing about the update and keep talking…

  • ahmad saeedi

    :|

  • lovebmw

    it’s def not worth the uneducated comments poeple left LOL… hope you enjoy the smoothness.

  • Chris

    Lol I’m not shoving it into your face, I’m saying it based on past experiences with midrange phones. It’s cool if you want to believe you’ll get the update, I’m just saying dont keep your hopes too up that when they get crushed you’ll blame Sony (all companies do this to their midrange phones).

  • Relax

    You will never get rid of us sp owners.
    We will be everywhere, we will hunt your dreams, we will rise anytime there is an article with the word update in it.

  • Jerry Berglund

    Congrats sp users. A mid-end phone gets the update before premiumphone XV and XT.

  • WhatTheH

  • boosook

    OH SONY! Come on! I have an Xperia Mini Pro but I want the SP update. Where is the “Xperia SP update for Xperia Mini Pro” version? Sony you better release it now!

  • lovebmw

    yeah yeah, so will the 4.3 and the F word will never stop from the uneducated

  • Timbo1

    In a perfect world it should get it, the device could definitely handle KitKat but will Sony update it officially, I don’t think so unfortunately but stranger things have happened in the tech world. These phones should have at minimum a two year support for updates, especially how KitKat is much lighter than Jelly Bean.

  • lecin

    I got the info from the Sony US chat admin that the firmware will starts rolling out worldwide tomorrow. I hope that’s true

  • Dido

    Xperia miro is clearly flagship !!!!

  • HAD

    I dont need 4.3 i need fix bug on 4.1.2

  • e1i@zzz

    meanwhile on sony headquarter…

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Do you even have the faintest idea of the changes from 4.1 to 4.3 in both stock android and Sony’s custom skin!!!!

    It is a whole new phone…… Still waiting in India though!

  • InspectorGadget80

    At least u guys with SP owners out their can quit whining bout your damn SP. And Why on earth would i cry bout my Z1 already have 4.3 and it will get 4.4.2 PATIENCE a virtue people. I don’t complain. I choose too wait too buy a flagship that WILL get the first updated software.

  • HLG

    Hey genius, do you know what punctuation means? I completed my thought with an exclamation point. So yes that means the SP users can shut up because the update has finally been released. I can tell whoever I want to shut up if they were trolling many threads whining about their update! I never said any sony ROM is bug free, nothing is perfect!

    May be after official announcement it would be available so far no official announcement has come from sony regarding changelog and update

  • DStyle

    I believe those who complain much are not Sony users. Just imagine, if a phone really has so much issues with its software, will you continue to use it or just get a replacement? I’m sure, those who complaint are Samsung users as just to keep users think Sony products are crap. Again, they just can’t admit that Sony is just getting better and better,

  • Rob

    Sony needs to stop letting people know their plans. If they don’t say they plan on releasing a software in so and so many weeks, the whining tossers wont bitch and moan when things turn out differently.
    I mean they’d complain in general, but thats just their way.

  • mosu

    I think it won’t be fair changing the kitkat update to under investigation cause some people bought XSP cause sony said it would be updated to kitkat the sudden change in decision won’t be good for sony

    I’ll inform You about upgrade.

  • Joseph Dooley

    Can’t believe some people are talking about Kitkat already! I’ve just updated to 4.3 after all the waiting and more than happy with it. Kitkat may or may never happen so I’ll forget about it for a good while!

  • siv geor

    Is it in the UK yet

  • Joseph Dooley

    Yes updated mine this afternoon on Vodafone.

  • Haroon Rashid

    Haven’t got mine yet :/

  • Haroon Rashid

    Did you get an alert on your phone when the update was available?

  • Joseph Dooley

    I just used Sony PC Companion and the update appeared early this afternoon.

  • Haroon Rashid

    Hmm that’s weird I haven’t got it. Could it be because I am running Windows 8.1?

  • Joseph Dooley

    I don’t know if that would make a difference as I have Windows 7

  • kosmas

    Just updated in Greece.
    First impressions
    – UI is a bit smoother
    – Camera still the same crap (low definition with lots of grain)
    – Camera UI is… different. The only real downside for me was that the HDR quick set key disappeared and the only way to toggle HDR is through the menus.
    – High CPU utilization for about half and hour after the first boot. Probably expected.
    – WiFi performance. THIS IS GOOD! In a remote room I used to have 2/4 in 2.4GHz and no signal in 5GHz. Now it is FULL SIGNAL in 5GHz!!

    Some people have problems with the PC companion software in Windows 8. You can try the Sony Update Service application from
    http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/tools/update-service/

  • Italiano2000

    Sony Update Service doesn’t show SP for me !!

  • kosmas

    If you downloaded the latest version from the link above then you should find it around the middle of the list.

  • Italiano2000

    May be also region dependent or not ?
    also please, did it erase the installed apps and apps data or installed ?
    Thanks :)

  • kosmas

    I don’t think it is region depended. It’s from the global site.
    If you choose the first option (update) then ALL your settings are preserved. Even your home screen with all the folders, all the apps and even the settings you had (like Bravia Engine OFF, which gives a bit more natural colors in your photos).

  • kosmas

    For Windows 8 and PC Companion app there is a problem.
    You should try the Sony Update Service from
    http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/tools/update-service/
    According to the description…

    System requirements

    Internet connection (preferably broadband)
    USB cable
    Intel® Pentium® 4, 2.0 GHz or higher, AMD Athlon
    500 MB free hard disk space
    512 MB RAM
    1 available USB 2.0 port
    Windows XP™ (Home or Professional) with SP2 or later
    Microsoft® Windows Vista™
    Microsoft® Windows 7
    Microsoft® Windows 8

  • Haroon Rashid

    I tried that. SP is not there.

  • Italiano2000

    Great :D
    Thanks a lot, man :)

  • kosmas

    It is an application from the global site. Everything is there. Have a look in the screenshot above and try to locate it around the MIDDLE of the list. Keep in mind, the list is “segmentally” alphabetical.

  • Haroon Rashid

    I downloaded the program from the global site, went to the middle of the list, still nothing there

  • kosmas

    Good luck and enjoy! :-)

  • kosmas

    Ok, even so, that step is not important. It’s just to correctly guide you to the next step which is how to connect your phone to your PC. Select any other android phone (like Xperia V) and press next. The instructions are the same.
    – Turn off the phone.
    – Press and hold volume down.
    – Connect USB cable to the phone.
    – Application recognizes the phone.
    – Proceeds to the next screen where it instructs you to let go of the volume down key and searches for software.

    Have a look at the screenshot below.

  • Haroon Rashid

    Are you sure I should do this? Besides PC Companion says there’s no updates right now anyway.

  • kosmas

    Yes, I’m sure. I just did it with my phone to get the following screenshots. Did this with Xperia V selected but still it recognized my SP.
    Have a look bellow.

  • Haroon Rashid

    Xperia V also wasn’t there, so I tried Xperia ZR. It says USB device not recognized and the program fails to detect my phone

    THANKS SONY

  • kosmas

    Can you post a screenshot?

  • Haroon Rashid

    I can’t right now. It’s just a pop up that comes from the Windows taskbar saying that the USB device is not recognized and the Sony Update Service program does not detect my device. I think i’ll just use Windows 7 for this, and besides, PC Companion is still saying that i’m already up to date. Thanks for your help though.

  • http://javarealmachine.blogspot.com/ Manuel

    Ok, my smartphone is updated.

    What i have seen…

    – Faster, it seems to move better among applications and desktops.
    – Better touch. Before i had to have the ‘glove mode’ activated to get a good response, now it seems to work very much better.
    – Unlock screen (with pin): pretty, i like the new buttons.
    – New Xperia Keyboard.
    – It seems that the black screen bug when we awake the smartphone is solved.
    – Led notifications working with Stamina mode.
    – MyXperia servies avaliable in Spain
    – Stamina icon when the mode is active has dissapeared.
    – Camera: the photos are still bad… too much noise, the photo quality is AWFUL. :( although we have now a new interface

  • kosmas

    In addition to these I have noticed a BIG improvement on the WiFi reception performance, both in 2.4 and 5GHz. What are your impressions?

  • kosmas

    Also, quite a few applications -Google search included- crash upon starting. I’ve done an update and not the full factory reset though.

  • http://javarealmachine.blogspot.com/ Manuel

    i have tested only with a WiFi in the work, it seems to goes really well. But I want to test it in my house, i had problems to get signal in some rooms.

  • kosmas

    Prepare for a nice surprise! :-)

  • http://javarealmachine.blogspot.com/ Manuel

    i have not problems with any application, i have tested Google Search and it’s working fine.

    I also did an update, not full factory.

  • kosmas

    Hmmm… Thanks for the input. Have you tried the antutu benchmark? This crashes upon start as well.
    Anyway perhaps it is a good opportunity to re-do everything from scratch.

  • http://javarealmachine.blogspot.com/ Manuel

    An example of the photo quality…

    A panoramic photo that i took with my old Xperia Neo V, and a photo that I have taken with the Xperia SP.

  • http://javarealmachine.blogspot.com/ Manuel

    Great!!! thanks. :)

  • kosmas

    If PC Companion is your choice then you should stick with Win7 as it doesn’t work with Win8.

    Otherwise you can try the Sony Update Service from http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/tools/update-service/ which works on Win7 and Win8.

  • kosmas

    Photo didn’t upload. For the record, my previous phone was also the Neo V. I remember we were complaining about the photo quality of the Neo V back then, but compared with the SP… it was magnificent!

  • http://javarealmachine.blogspot.com/ Manuel

    Ok, i have downloaed antutu and it has worked fine. A screenshot with the results.

  • Fawaz Kutni

    thank you,
    am using windows 8 , now am downloading Update service

    Yes, i have just installed and it’s working fine.

  • Pingback: تحديث الأندرويد 4.3 Jelly Bean بدأ بالوصول إلى هواتف Xperia SP()

  • Haroon Rashid

    There was an update to PC Companion a few weeks back. It’s now version 2.1. Has that not fixed the compatibilty issue? Also what if you run the PC Companion in compatibility mode for Windows 7?

  • cho

    well i updated mine last night and i guess the issue with the phone coming out of standby with a blackscreen bug has indeed been fixed. which is great because that frustrates the heck out of me lol! the phone’s battery standby time seems to have improved as well.

    – performance is the same as before (with nova launcher at least). switching from an app back to the homescreen still randomly lag. then again this might be an issue with the app, and not sony.
    – the camera is still producing low-quality photos. the UI looks different and i wish they added an option to disable the start-up sound.
    – the GUI pretty much changed from dark gray/black theme to white. it looks okay, but apps like the calculator IMO looks better before.
    – the list of previous/running apps now display bigger preview icons, w/c looks good.
    – i’m still randomly seeing a circular pattern when i tap on my screen. i’m not sure what causes that.
    – not recognizing taps while the phone is placed horizontally on a flat surface is now no longer an issue.

  • kosmas

    It should be visible in the middle of the drop down list as you can see in the screenshot below.

  • Pingback: تحديث الأندرويد 4.3 Jelly Bean بدأ بالوصول إلى هواتف Xperia SP - مدونة ندى هوست()

  • Adil

    the circular pattern is basically the glove mode. it gets activated when you try to respond the screen from a little bit distance and the sensor identifies the proximity and hence become extra responsive. You can actually use the phone by literally not touching the screen.

    P.S. its a glove mode so you can also use the screen while having gloves on during winters. :D

  • Adil

    4.3 update solved 2 major issues.
    – WiFi reception performance is MUCH better now.
    – Bluetooth voice levels FIXED! In the past when I had the phone connected to my car bluetooth I had to crank the volume up to the max. Now everything is back to normal!

  • Sabin Jamal

    Touch respones improved a lot.
    Wifi has improved a lot.
    Smileys changed.
    Additional option called “daydream” in display settings.
    New option called “my experia” in xperia settings.
    Got additional application like play movies, xperia care, play magazine, play books etc.
    Keyboard layout has changed.
    Lock screen changed, which is so cool.
    Options to add themes from sony select app.
    Automatically changed gtalk app to hangouts (tried to install old talk, unable to install, so sad ).
    Battery life has improved.
    So smooth, so cool …

  • Sabin Jamal

    Touch sound has changed, which is too low to hear… No way to increase it.
    Camera settings got very ugly !

  • Sa113

    The only reason I wanted this update was because of the major bug that wifi worked only randomly. So now that is finally fixed. The Reception is as bad as it used to be, but at least it doesn’t disconnect randomly.
    BUT if you don’t have the WiFi bug on your device don’t upgrade! Everything is so slow and all apps hangs / crashes all the time! The battery is drained in a few hours by ‘Android os’ :(
    I have naturally tried rebooting several times, but what used to be a good phone (apart from wifi) is now a crap brick!

  • Haroon Rashid

    Well that’s not what other people have been saying….

  • thompson

    Got the update in the uk. The phone is miles better at last. Faster, smoother and much nicer looking apps like music and messaging. great battery life to.

    Use this to find out whether your phone/carrier has the latest firmware update or not: http://scavenger.ch/sonyupdate/
    Just select your Xperia phone from the list and follow the steps to find your “Custom number”. It will then show you your latest firmware.
    NOTE: In the list SP C5302 is not there, only C5303. Also when you find your “custom number” you only need to enter the first 8 digits (including the dash).

    can i see the screen shot of your software update.

  • XSP

    I think those mobiles are shipped to india from other country. Customization number will be different for other country. Sony is releasing update as per Customization number.So they have got the update… coz of different Customization no. We have to wait for our turn…:(

  • Neeraj Majumdar

    yes people who have purchased their mobiles in other countries or on eBay has got their update, we have to wait till Sony releases their update for Indian phones.

  • Sabin Jamal

    the only problems i have now is, while checking updates using wifi, for a milli second, it shows “mobile data disabled, enable now? ” the it disappears.

    Another is when i restart sometimes the screen sleep time goes back to default time of 15 seconds.

  • Gareth McStravick

    4.3 arrived on NZ Xperia SP!

  • thompson

    Could be if your phone is locked to a certain carrier you might have to wait till they release it. my phone is unlocked so got the update straight away.

  • Sabin Jamal

    Nope Its from UAE.

  • Neeraj Majumdar

    Sony forgot to release the update in India i guess :P

    How about this ?

  • vinoth

    will 5302 get 4.3 update, in india?

  • nklive

    Update to 4.3, major turn-offs
    Airplane mode widget is a shortcut now and not a switch as before
    It is slower in many ways.
    Sometimes, not always, consumes all the RAM leaving just a mere ~70 MB, even though Total RAM has increased compared to 4.1.2 Android.
    Camera still the same.
    Got in my hand a nexus 5 and I realised even more how much slower is our handset compared to stock android.
    And I thought only samsung’s touch wiz was heavy because it does make galaxy’s look slow and unresposive.
    Now Xperia SP looks slow and unresposive too.
    It is a shame since our handset has very good benchmarks, if not better, compared to Nexus 5 and other galaxys similar phones.

    basically sony sucks on giving firmware updates, even if they give it takes weeks to reach every region and country. hope to get 4.3 update in india soon.

  • XSP

    I agree Neeraj. I called Sony customer care, they are not giving any exact date. But they are just promising update will reach us soon..:(

  • XSP

    Not yet buddy.

  • Neeraj Majumdar

    hope to get the update by end of feb. :( it’s hard to wait as almost every country has the update, except india.

  • mrhossen

    Is there any problem or difference if we update from FTF file ?? have you any knowledge about that @neerajmajumdar:disqus

  • sanjjub

    …….that’s why nexus are better…… next time I’ll prefer nexus.

  • Haroon Rashid

    This is not true. It can take a few weeks with any manufacturer. I know someone who got their 4.4 update for the Nexus 7 two weeks late, so don’t blame Sony when they have already rolled out the update. I’m in the UK and still haven’t received my 4.3 update.

  • Haroon Rashid

    My phone is unlocked…

  • sanjjub

    “Sony Companion” shows phone upto date with build no. 12.0.A.2.254 while sonymobile india web page shows build no. 12.1.A.0.266 as latest available software……. plz, sony explain…….???

  • Haroon Rashid

    It means that the update has already been rolled out by Sony. However, it takes time for every device/carrier to receive the update. Patience wins the race…

  • Sa113

    After doing a factory reset, re-installing 4.3 and all apps again is the phone slightly more stable than after the first try to update. But it is still slow (it can take Settings 10 seconds to open) and systems apps and other apps keeps crashing. The only positive thing with the update is that wi-fi doesn’t disconnect all the time…

  • Neeraj Majumdar

    i’m not blaming Sony, its actually a good company all i want to say is that when it comes to updates they take too much time to give updates. except the Z series. I know it takes time to receive the updates but you get frustrated wen every other country has the update and yours isn’t. Maybe Sony should do something that every region get their updates faster, keeping their customers happy in every corner of the world. :)

  • Neeraj Majumdar

    I dont know much about the FTF file, but the People who have updated through the FTF file have bugs on their phone, so why not wait for a few more days for the official one? if you know how to flash the file using flash-tool then you can, somewhere i read the flash-tool doesn’t recognize the ftf file, or there are chances of getting your phone bricked if you are a amateur, just Google it for more info. :)

  • mrhossen

    Thanks

  • Nidhi KarthiK

    Why is that we still didn’t receive update in India?
    Xtremely disappointed with the way Sony treats customers!!

  • Haroon Rashid

    It is probably possible to receive updates faster for everyone. However, when an update comes out it is released in batches. In each batch there are selected devices to receive the update, once the update has reached those devices, the next batch is then released etc. The problem with releasing the update for everyone at the same time is that it increases server load dramatically because everyone is downloading it, which can reduce downloads speeds and may cause incomplete downloads. Maybe having more servers might help getting updates faster.

  • 4.3user

    4.3 suckssss… camera is bad,.,.too much memory is being used by the system,,, and flappy bird lags for crying out loud.. this suckss..also i get a grea are on the screen instead of my volume adjuster, when i press the volume rocker.. crappy software..

  • vinoth

    Not much happy faces here. Those who got the update complains about it. Those who haven’t got the update, like me, also complain about not getting yet. :( Should i go for the update or not?

  • nickyvengeance

    Using Flashtool could be a reason why those people are complaining about the update. There’s no downside to the 4.3 update really. I’ve seen some bugs have been resolved and no major ones have come with this update. The amount of things they’ve made better puts the SP’s last 4.1.2 firmware in the dust :)

  • Haroon Rashid

    Not sure man. I want to see it for my self first to see if it really is buggy. I have a feeling people start making judgements on the software straight away. It may be that people don’t update correctly and impatiently.

  • jishneo

    no update in INDIA yet…so pissed….!!!!

  • nickyvengeance

    Using flashtool could be a reason why some of those people are complaining. 4.3 got rid of bugs and less major ones can be found. With all of the things they’ve improved and added, 4.3 puts the SP’s last 4.1.2 firmware in the dust :) Wait for the update to officially reach your phone/PC companion to get the least problems.

  • vinoth

    But i still doubt whether 5302 will get the update :( Wherever i see 5303 is the one that gets the update. Has anyone got update for 5302??? What my concern really is whether will it get in few days or this update is only for 5303?

  • vinoth

    Things like updates are like momentary happiness much like we feel when we buy the new phone. When such things are assured but delayed it’s a little annoying, particularly when people from all other country enjoy that and you do not! Let’s see!

  • waseem ahamed

    when is the update arriving in India Model C5302???????

  • Oscar

    I’ve already updated my C5302 to 4.3, it’s working fine, smooth and the battery lasts longer. (about +2 hours). I did it through Update Service.
    The only thing it’s sometimes I connect the phone to charger and display does not turn off. (With Keep Awake option unchecked).

  • Sa113

    Please point me to where I can download the old 4.1.2 build!
    The 4.3 build is useless: apps keeps crashing and opening for example Settings takes 10 seconds. I have done a factory reset and re-installed 4.3 and all apps, but that did not help.
    Now I’ll install 4.1.2, root it and fix the wifi bug with the available solution instead.

  • zeb

    Today I went to official sony center to roll back to 4.1.2 (12.0.A.2.254) because of having many bugs in 4.3. Sony official said that this update is just like beta version, and sony will collect reviews for 4.3 version. And after resolving the problems they will finally release a update which which will correct the issues…And for that we have to wait few months. I’m now back again with my 4.1.2, some of the problems I found in 4.3 are:

    1. illumination bar does not blink correctly while in Walkman (especially when the volume is full).
    2. Bravia engine 2 is not working at all. Its presence doesn’t make any difference in the image quality. I installed 4.3 for 3 times to resolve the issue. but nothing happened.
    3. Image processing quality of new camera app is not good at all…images are too much grainy.
    4. The system becomes so slow when I install some of my apps. That didn’t happened in 4.1.2
    5. Fonts are not same in some section and there are spacing problems in the lines. You will see it especially when installing/uninstalling apps. The name and the animation bar just mixed up.

    Although sony official said that it is not the final version, nevertheless, I feel the best matching for SP is 12.0.A.2.254 still now…u will get the best service from it. Even that official said same that this also happened in the earlier versions of sony ericsson mobile. Also they said that I should not update it by myself, when the final version will come just take the phone to the sony center and they will give complete and fresh firmware. Now I’m happy with my original firmware. :D

    Those bought your XSP from sony official store will have the advantage of rolling back to your original firmware. They will reinstall them from their database with free of cost.

  • Vijendra Verma

    Is Sony afraid from the Indian user… B’cos all over the world Sony provide the buggy update but in India they didn’t… According to me India is the major market for Sony and that’s y he didn’t want anymistake regarding update, so that’s y they are providing late bug free updates

  • Neeraj Majumdar

    i dont think so that Sony is afraid of Indian users, after all why would sony be afraid of one country wen they have released the update all over the world. :P India wil aslo get the buggy update in the coming days.

    even though it is frustrating, but ive read a few remarks of the people who got the upgrade and they seem to fin the 4.3 firmware really crappy and prefer the 4.1.2 software. now i dont know if i should upgrade whenever they release it in india

  • Aditya V

    when is it coming for India ?

  • Vijendra Verma

    See that the thing I’m saying… India and America is the next biggest market in the world after China and that’s y Sony afraid for losing such a big market and due to this reason they don’t want to creat any negative goodwill, that’s y they are not send us a buggy update, and making us wait for bug free update.

  • cyapalmos

  • thompson

    i do not have any of these problems, my phone is miles better since the update.

  • vishal

    still not for india ,i did’nt recive any update…..how much time have to sony….i from mumbai

  • randy

    the only issue that i am also experiencing on your list is the thing with the bravia engine. which in my case isn’t really an “issue” since i don’t use it. performance wise, i really don’t see any improvement, nor is it slower. the battery standby time has more than doubled, and the additional features in 4.3 made this an overall better version.

    though i find it weird that you were told not to install the update by yourself when all you have to do is plug-in your phone on a computer, download the update, uplug the phone, and wait for it to update on its own. its pretty simple. how can you mess that up?

  • randy

    - hold down the power button, then select airplane mode. no need to use a widget for that
    – the total amount of RAM cannot be increased by a software. it’s a hardware limitation and is only ‘managed’ by the phone’s OS. also remember that “Unused RAM, is RAM wasted”. android automatically frees up RAM when an app requires it.

  • Aniam

    My thoughts after a few days with this update:-

    1. Please bring back the screenshot option to the power button,I use this a lot and loved how I could do it with 1 hand.

    2. RAM management, at times I only have 80MB of RAM remaining.With previous firmware I never saw below 160.

    3. Small conflict between stamina mode and light bar. It glows white instead of assigned color. stamina mode also conflicts with light flow app even after app white listed (guess the app developers will deal with this). I miss how the bar used to glow when calling (screen on bar on, screen off bar off).

    4. Loved the former theme ‘Ruby’ that turned the UI accents a deep dark red, new ‘Heat; theme makes accents a light red that’s more like pink. Love the new downloadable themes, they even change the android button design. I downloaded one called ‘Noir’ which I am liking very much. No major update needed to overhaul the look of the UI.

    5. I like the social smart camera although i cannot download motionshot as it is not available in my region(it’s available on my friend’s Z1). Camera quality on superior auto seems better although you cannot change resolution and I think they removed the 8 mega pixel option from manual(not sure it was there before). There is now no mention of 8 Megapixels except oh the box.

    6. There is a bug with the volume bar when you press the volume keys, instead of a slider there is a black bar with zero points of reference.

    7. Not the biggest fan of the new mostly white options menu especially as the notification area does not match.

    8. Love than i can now uninstall the Facebook app.

    9. I absolutely hate, loathe, detest, despise, dislike, abhor the new xperia keyboard. I liked how punctuation was below the editing screen. (I don’t know how or why this font is now grey)

    Thanks to all the info found on http://forum.xda-developers.com/index.php have I now been able to downgrade to 4.1.2 again. And this time I also rooted. Will try to fix he Wi-Fi bug once I have everything set up again.
    For me 4.1.2 speed is like an F1 car and 4.3 was slow as a tractor, with apps not responding all the time.

    Can anyone tell me how come some people finds 4.3 to be better than 4.1.2?
    I’m in Finland and I start to suspect that the version here is full of bugs, but that other regions have better versions?

  • Chinmay

    u updated with ota or pc companion..

  • sanjjub

    After this update my SXSP running very smooth. Screen transitions feels way better and smoother than those in 4.1.2 JB. New “one handed operation” in Keyboard App is very useful but keyboard looks some ugly especially in black skin, actually it looks funny. But overall performance wise, keyboard is buttery smooth. Battery performance is a lot better than JB 4.1.2. Light background in all over the UI gives pleasant appearance and feel of 4.4 KitKat. App drawer altered a lot but if option to hide apps could have been better.

    Overall a very good update. Thanks Sony.

  • Parth Dixit

    It happed to me 2. If you have changed ur theme change it back to original or try another (if u have not changed) and reboot. It worked for me. Hope it helped.

    when will india get sp 4.3 update damid

  • randy

    having less amount of available RAM doesn’t automatically mean that its “bad RAM management”. because if that is the case, then android should just close all of your apps in the background to free up RAM (w/c you can do by the way under developer options). as long as the OS is capable of freeing up necessary amount of memory when your app requests for it, then there’s really no problem with seeing small amount of available RAM. there’s really no point of having a lot of available ‘unused’ RAM because that is memory being wasted because it’s not being used. that in my opinion is the true meaning of bad memory management

    Not satisfied wit d update

  • http://javarealmachine.blogspot.com/ Manuel

    After 5 days i have reinstalled the firmware using PCCompanion.

    The smartphone had the sound bar bug, it got freezed sometimes and reset alone every 4-5 hours.

    With the reinstall the sound bar bug goes, but if you reinstall an app, which is just installed in the firmware, from a previous backup, then the sound bar bug comes back.

    At least the freeze problems go away with the resintall.

    About the previous problems:

    – Wifi: OK, very much better the signal.
    – Performance: OK, i hope that the ftrim functionality helps to keep a good performance.
    – Thumbdata files: it seems smaller than in 4.1 (~300MB vs previous 500MBs)
    – Camera: suck. Still bad quality.

    I have the “sony sp update 4.3 build 12.1.A.0.266″ SOme of it is great. Interface improvements for phone and walkman app. Walkman cannot throw music to my sonos speaker anymore (pity), I can’t take screenshots anymore (this is annoying), log in, finger swipe-> drags clock box down as if I want to edit the box size! (annoying) worse still I cannot. Sp what is better? Eh I use Aviate as my device manager, but most of the interfaces are better and the typography, spacing is better (happy). My business calendar pro app would not sync. Downloading the google cal app and syncing it got business calendar pro working again

    This update really sucks!! Many apps stopped working, while others were presenting issues and i had to reinstall lots of apps. Then, suddenly, my phone shut down and wouldn’t turn on again. I took it to Sony Service, and after 3 days, it was fixed but i lost all data on it, including most of my contacts, since they reinstall the old software. Now my SP is asking for a system upgrade, but i am simply not convinced i should do it, since my last experience was a nightmare. Sony is the best, You guys should fix this problem. P.S. the new screen shot shortcut is horrible. Thanks for reading .. .

    Very interesting thing I just come across at MyDeals247.com – I could choose any number of jewellery items (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.

    I can’t get it to download on my phone. I can only get to the first two steps and when it says to hold the volume rocker and power button it vibrates and after that nothing.

    So if I was to download this ftf how would I able to install it on my SP? Any help would be appreciated.
