    You have the 4.3 from 12.1.A.0.266 that was released february 12th…
    The bug fix firmware may only apply to one carrier and maybe it wont go global..
    There wont be a 4.4.2 on SP so shut it!

  • xperialovers

    Dear guest you are not SONY so let them (sony) declare that XSP is getting 4.4.2 or not

  • techielover

    Its “xperia SP” so people you don’t have to be surprised if sony launches the .192 update with the update of 4.4 for z series and for kitkat for SP Really they might be thinking “Give us a break” :D

  • hyper0926

    Lol check us, Xperia L users we have not received 4.3 but also we have the most buggy firmware. Proximity sensor issues lags camera software issues

  • marwan balu

  • Abhijit Biswas

  • ferdie

    After the update, the battery drains even faster. Oh, Sony what have we done wrong to deserve this.

  • XPC

    after the update on my xpC, the clock always stop. this affects certain apps that use the clock to trigger such as some notification apps. but the clock widget work properly. anybody face the same problem?

    last night after doing some data clearance from the apps, all of my media files gone missing. including all the ringtones and notifications sound. Luckily this morning i connect the phone to my laptop and try to browse those files through PC companion, everything’s recovered.

  • Haruna

    I updated my sony xperia c with d latest update but i couldn’t notice any change. My problem with d phone is low device memory which has not changed despite the recent upgrade. Please who can assist me in resolving this memory issue?

    IM From Iran And I Owned This Phoe Not Too Bad But Cmare Sucks Really But Battery Life Impressed Me I Can See Little Bugs But Not Important To Me Much I Like This Phone But PLZ Do SOmthing TO Camera Its Really Trash Bin

  • Daniyal

    What are the changes after this update?

  • noypi_07

    just completed updating. all downloaded apps are not working. further check showed these are apps which uses the removable SD card. during the time the phone is finalizing updates it was showing countdown of apps being updated which as i presumed android automatically made changes to the file system, but this update did not have flexibility of checking and verifying memory and data location hence it just automatically updated file system on fixed storage (so all system files/apps on removable SD got messed up). apart from messing up my apps, i cannot see or observe other significant changes so far, device still take 10s or more to power on, camera takes long time to capture as before, front camera though vga still cant get enough light in it (other china phone (with vga camera) fared better), switching 3G networks often not working automatically (manual tweaking often necessary); still havent tested battery though if still rapidly discharging when reaching 30% (stamina mode helps actually).

  • rdheeru
