A few days back we brought you news that a new firmware version (9.1.A.0.492) had been certified for the Sony Xperia TX (LT29i). This is the much-awaited Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Xperia TX owners, who are still waiting for the new firmware despite the Xperia T and Xperia V enjoying it for a number of weeks.

Well it looks like the same firmware is due to land on the Xperia T (LT30p/LT30a) and Xperia V (LT25i) too judging by the PTCRB website. The Sony Xperia T is currently running 9.1.A.0.489 firmware, whilst the Xperia V has 9.1.A.0.490. Given the incremental update number, we expect this update to concentrate on bug fixes.

Hopefully, it will at least rectify problems that users are having with the Walkman app. There is currently often a long delay between songs when the screen locks. A current workaround is using a different media player entirely such as Google Music or PowerAmp, but most want to be able to use the Walkman app with its sleek UI. Hopefully the problem with the app will be sorted in this new update.
