New firmware (9.2.A.1.199) rolling to Xperia T, TX and Xperia V owners

by XB on 10th March 2014

in Firmware, Xperia T, Xperia V

Xperia T_9.2.A.1.199We recently reported that a new firmware build (9.2.A.1.199) looked like it was rolling to Xperia TX (LT29i) owners. Well it now seems that the update is indeed formally rolling out from today as Sony Mobile’s product pages for the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V have all been updated to confirm this new firmware build.

The changelog says that the update brings an enhanced user experience, improved battery life and software performance improvements, so we imagine it is mostly a big bug-fixing update which we have already seen on the Xperia Z series. Checking the Xperia Update Checker, the update appears to now be live for all three handsets across select regions/carriers.

  • beautifulest

    this is the final of the 18 months Android support for devices. so its no surprise the T,TX and V has received their retirement update for this. At least it fulfilled those 18 months of support.

  • tyt

    the Snapdragon S3 petition was made long ago, didnt work till today… i don’t have high hopes for this either.. its the industry players that determine. We hardly have any say in it.

    why spread negativity…….
    see the brighter side… anyways the phone is close to 2 years… the people will be raring to upgrade now

  • Lajos Márk Kovács
  • Ted

    Still crashes PC companion when trying to back-up my T.

  • fvgfd

    Yes it is but thinking of it as a flagship and comparing to galaxy S3 which was introduced 4 months before XT Sony does not manage to keep up with the big player in terms of updates…
    It is negativity towards Sony as they are just throwing new devices at us without really supporting older flagships even if nothing speaks against it except the fact that the device is out of 18 months line (yeah and when Sony manages to delay an update for two months sure that counts for that dead line… Really it’s just an excuse)

  • jhayp sevilla

    Not yet available in philippines hoping to get the update soon

  • Jerry Berglund

    Well that is a good sign.

  • Danny

    I recently bought a AT&T LT30at, but it have the Lt30p model number under SETTINGS-> ABOUT PHONE. Will this phone be able to update as well. It still 4.1.2 android. No update listed yet in the notification. I connect the phone to Sony PC Companion, but no updates were found.

    I also have a TX LT29i but is holding out on updating it until I’m sure the bugs are fixed. It’s still running 4.1.2.

  • XV user

    Anyone got the update in malaysia..?

  • Wolf0491

    and ATT will never update the TL in united states lol

  • JTLtd

    Return of the NFC logo?

  • cleverdix

    clever management on the part of sony. they just delayed 4.1 for 4 months and 4.3 for 3 months. so now, they dont really have to slog it out. very clever indeed

  • Jerry Berglund

    Volumebutton bug?

  • Jerry Berglund

    Nono… Sony has 2 years support for their devices… Its only when it comes to NEW OS versions there is 18 months. So if we need bugfixes these will still come. But there is still 2 months left on theese 18 months.

  • Jerry Berglund

    Ok ok. enough with this. The reason why Sony/Ericsson didnt update some of their phones as long for instance S3 is that S3 had newer hardware. It not until Xperia T and V when sony started to use more up-to-date hardware And now they even a little before Samsung. Samsung S3 had the latest hardware allready when it was released so of course it still gets New OS-version because IT COULD HANDLE new OS. Its is though a little pity that KitKat came this late though. But I still think Xperia V and T will get that, why, because there is still support for that hardware.

  • oto

    we don,t have any update in georgia:( when will it be posiible? for xperia v

  • XperiaV

    If I can remember, xperia v is from December 2012 so I think our support remains till June :)

  • Mr Intro

    So im not the only one ey

  • Midleo

    You have both bugs!!!! We all have… i dont know what the Sony fixed!?

    The volume bug is when you applying for ex. Triflat them (sony select/playstore). Apply the theme and to got all the effect of them you need to reboot the phone (its also bad thing i guess) and after the phone boot up press vol+ and vol- and you will see a little black box but not the volume slider
    The installing bug is also still!!! REZASAT already explained!

  • Jerry Berglund

    I do find the volumbug if i use a special theme, but that installbug, nothings strange there what I can se?

  • Caio Faria

    For me, this update of the Xperia T brought no improvement. Shoot 1080p still waging unbearable bugs in the gallery and on the covers of albums Walkman are always with low-quality. I don’t know what Sony want, but if she wanted to, these errors could already be fixed.

  • rvjaywaks

    That not a bug. Call them weird design. Haha. Even z series have those weird design.

  • XperiaVuserMsia

    volume bar bug is still there, clicking/buzzing/’brrrrr’ sound is still there when recording, phone still freezes & restarts when multitasking (which doesn’t happened at all on fw 4.2.2), battery level still suddenly drop by 10-15% whenever phone restarts…

    this new fw didn’t fix a damn thing…….. thx for nothing sony, i guess?

  • Misael Romero

    i cant see anything different in the update

  • Misael Romero

    i uploaded but i cant se any differet

  • Maidul Islam Rasu

    That bug is in those themes. That is not a phone issue. Installing bug! Did not notice any in my xperia T. And hmm apart from about 30MB more free ram did u find any other improvements ??

  • Maidul Islam Rasu

    Hmm. it was a 733MB !! update. But apart from 30MB more free ram didn’t see any significant change.

  • Sepehr Estaki

    Dear Sony!
    would you please tell me what the hell you were doing in this firmware?
    All the bugs are our guest still, and I can not use xperia theme yet because it goes to restart loop! and now I am flashing my phone with SUS (Sony Update Service) AGAIN!
    good job SONY! Continue …

    i think battery is better with this update. still have to test it for 24 hrs

  • techielover

    A new day a new update but wait!! new means good and bug free from past 10 months they are making update for 4.3 instead of providing a one hell of a good bug free update they are just focusing on new phones and giving all their sweat on flagship xz1(which is old so might be given less attention from now) and comes to xz2 shiny and just out of the warehouse goddamn.. they cant provide their customer a update which is bug free and soo poor testing no acknowledgement of feedback issues from user end they understand which are thousands of them to provide them best estimation of what exactly users are suffering from they just working blindly!!!

  • laci_csk

    My volume button its working fine, never see this bug in my phone.

    For those of you who know how. Free up

  • kagara

    thanks sony for this update


    it happen only in downloadable themes and after restart the phone.

  • Buat Komentar

    Anyone here remember update for xperia M?
    Firmware was certificate on february but not coming yet.
    I think sony forgot about update for my xperia m like people here.

  • Really? My Xperia SP must be very different from yours then.

    No bugs at all (except for app install graphics glitch which I fixed with a Xposed module), more ram and no more FCs, better camera and just much smoother overall. Yeah I’m good.

  • Jerry Berglund

    Ok, I tested the phone in failsafe mode, and this bug vanished. So that means an app is the villain of this bug, but wich one? Thats the question. I am searching now. :) Will return if I find the app that makes this bugg occure.

  • Jerry Berglund

    Just for information those downloadable themes aint made by Sony. The compnay who makes them is called Knowit Mobile AB.

  • Jerry Berglund

    Its really strange that we in Sweden hasnt got this update yet?

  • Akuma

    And they have balls to call it the James Bond phone

  • Matt Riley

    Sony are doing the next bond movie, possible titles are:
    You only get one update.
    Dr no update.
    The man with the broken Xperia t.
    Tomorrow never gets a update.
    4.1 is not enough.
    The update takes forever.
    Xperia t and let die.

  • francesco

    yes maybe your phone is better than the other thousands…

    For sure a special edition or maybe you use it like a nokia 3310…

  • Sony_Tyler

    Dream On…

  • Frode P. Bergsager

    I am fed up with deleting apps on my five previous Xperias due to Sony saving money on RAM and Flash-memory.
    Z is the first Xperia I have no RAM shortage after loading my apps.

  • Nikola Maruni?

    T/TX and V where all announced in September. So we have a month or so till the end. I wouldn’t get my hopes up. If they are planning to release Kit Kat they would have announced it by now!

  • Maidul Islam Rasu

    After this update I noticed the media apps like walkman or movie is an old version. Did anyone notice that?? Improved Antunu benchmark suggests performance has improved though cant find any significant change.

  • Maidul Islam Rasu

    There is no hope actually. Even Z series will struggle to get kitkat within 3 or 4 months.

  • Abubakker Sithick

    where is the update???

  • littlebeetle

    It’s less than 24 hours after the update and my phone suffered self power off. Till when I realised, I force to turn it on manually. Sony, please ensure your QC of the release go through every single possible scenario. Your 4.1.2 FW was really something to proud off. Come on do that again!!!

  • XperiaV

    Dude one thing is the announcement and the other the big month of sales! Like z2 they are just announcing it and it’s release will be in a few months same happened with xperia v announced in September launched in December for sales so June is the final month for us

  • laci_csk

    LOL. agree, just one exception: 4.3 is not enough.


    go to sony select and download one the downloadable themes.after installing them restart the phone and volume up or down the will see it..

  • Nikola Maruni?

    Yes but they are counting from the date the phone was released, not the date it had huge selling numbers. Plus in some countries these phones were released earlier. It would be nice if we got the update, but I’d rather be pessimistic and get surprised than be optimistic and get disapointed!

  • jhayp sevilla

    I think our phones is not compatible with jb 4.3 maybe kit kat and our phones can complement each other

  • francesco

    Lol mate one thing is the date of announcement and one thing is the sale date…

    The sale date it’s important.

    And for sale date it’s not considered the day that the phone sold a lot but the first day of sale in stores

    lol again…

  • FreddyNogo

    yes, very strange, but it is not in Norway either. Very very strange.

  • People hate me for not complaining. Oh well. And moaning and making a big fuss isn’t going to make the update any faster. How hard is that to understand?

  • francesco

    So, for you is correct to get a bugged update with random reboots and we should stay in silence waiting that sony make as this favor of fixing bugs…


  • Gary Halpin

    It’s the tri flat theme causing the volume bug!

  • mizik


  • Nikolai ivanov

    i recieved it :)

  • Use xperia update checker by macmol

  • Akuma

    Did u get the first update? I have XperiaT from Sweden customization number 1266-0471 im in Zimbabwe no update yet… Even the first one

  • Jerry Berglund

    Yes. I’ve got the first update of 4.3 :-)

  • laci_csk

    “still here” ? I have the first 4.3, and this bug not exist to me now.

  • frage_niemals

    Still no update in Germany. Doesn´t matter…the more the merrier ;o)

  • Nossredna

    Please guys! We should wait at least a few more months before it reaches any phone at all! Haven’t you learned anything about Sony’s update service? ;) hahaha

  • Actman

    Then u must got 9.2.A.1.199.DF (different firmware) good to hear that. Congrats!

  • momo

    Ive got it last night… Nothing speacial/ new detected…

  • Muyeed Mizan

    After The Update Media Server Is Draining 45-60% of My Phones Battery…..Any Solution Any One…. :/ :(

  • laci_csk

    I said ” I have the FIRST 4.3, and this bug not exist to me now.” This software: 9.2.A.1.199 is the SECOND 4.3, right?
    Conclusion in the FIRST 4.3 that bug it was not there, but in the 9.2.A.1.199 (SECOND 4.3) appeared, so is incorrect to say: “still here” because it wasn’t there, that was my opinion, and you misunderstood that.

  • laci_csk

    Go back to previous software.

  • Maidul Islam Rasu

    The walkman, movie app after 9.2.A.1.199 have been restored to a previous one. They are not the latest one. Anyone facing heating problem ??? The phone seems to heat quicker. battery backup is a bit better.

    I can’t wait any longer for the update so I unblocked my boot loader and flashed the russian 9.2.A.1.199 FTF file from the xperia update checker last saturday, surprisingly I didn’t experience any bugs like volume control and camera bugs. only thing is it reduces the battery performance but not that much I can still use my XV for 16 hours daily. my xv is Middle East released CustomizedSA.

  • Antonio

    oh one thing no social live cam included in the update but the other camera features of xz2 is available to download and it is compatible with XV

  • Antonio


  • Eman Philic

    maybe maybe. some users are facing restart issue after unplugging from charger and i never got that problem. just like that in some region firmwares got some bugs and some dont have any problem.
    anyway, new firmware is rolling out. lets have fun :D
