  • Vuth

    I have just updated my Xperia TX to Android 4.3, and then I faced a very big issue that when the phone charges to 100% it turns off. Are there any solutions for this?


    Factory rest is the best solution but dont forget to get back up before doing it.


    i had posted XPERIA TX screen shots in Android 4.3 updtae for Xperia V page.find them and take them .

  • hadi

  • keshav

    how to update tx in india.does india gets update..plz post

  • hamdan

    Can someone post benchmarks of the new update??

  • RandomGuy

    Simply just flash it using flashtool, but you needed to backup first before flashing it such a contract or an apps, especially flappy bird(if you have it..LOL).. Try Super backup app on playstore.

  • ahmed

    Thank you very much

  • TXspears

    cuando creen que saldra en colombia? O latinoamerica=

  • Not bad..

    4.1 and 4.3..

  • sickofdroid

    No retard, the rollout has only just started so only a few T/V/TX owners have the update so far. Everything Sony does is in slow-motion and if they went slower they would go backwards…instead of KitKat we should expect Gingerbread all over again.

  • sony

    No !

  • Anugrah Bahtiar

    Try using Sony Mobile Update Service application. I got the update from there… Good luck bro :D

  • xperiaDROID

    What are you fucking fruitcake talking about? Why don’t you get your facts right instead of calling people retard? So, you expect the update will directly arrive to people’s phones around the world? You must be new to Android then, the availability of software updates depends on your country and/or operator.

  • InspectorGadget80

    Now everyone can stop B.S. complaining. and next time don’t rush out and buy a model and MAKE SURE it will get the updated OS.

  • Sabin Jamal

    Admin, is there any way to report bugs to sony ? Please Reply.

  • AMEY
  • Tornike

    how to know what is my customization number ( TX )? No update in Georgia

  • Stevan Jambazian

    is there any dangerous if i flash the phone!!!! i have tx and still i didnt get the update in Armenia!!!!

  • ssk-xperialover

    Feeling a lot of difference in all aspects camera,walkman etc.. Sony has done a real good job with the new update.. Absolutely zero lag and loaded with more features, seems like i wont be changing my phone anytime soon :D

  • Tornike

    ima jealous

  • LOL

    Simply just like you’re reset your phone to factory setting(not effecting SD card, no worries), so, backup first before flashing it

  • Stevan Jambazian

    thanks a lot,but where can i found the flash tool?

  • :P

    Ever heard of search engines such a yahoo, bing or Google?

  • Stevan Jambazian

    last question :) do i need to unlock my phone?

  • …..

  • DZ

    I admitted this updated was the best ever from what i got compared to the previous updated, but by saying the update was a zero lag? Nah! Don’t you be kidding with me, but, yea, what do i expect from a device with 1gb of ram.. Hey! At least, we once more got the feeling of holding a flagship device in our hand, don’t you agree? :3

  • droidisretarded

    lmao..all those statements apply to you. If you know that the availability depends on country and carrier why say that we all have it and can enjoy it now?..some can, others are still waiting . Do you not understand what words mean? It seems that you don’t..

  • droidisretardedandevil

    btw, you ARE retarded.
