    hey , my PC companion is not showing any update for my xperia P . its saying its already up to date . and there are neither any notifications in the update center , i live in Pakistan. Please guide .

      Well please let me know by going into “about me” phone settings on which version you are already and if you are still on “ICS 4.0.4″, then may be Sony has not rolled out yet Jelly Bean in Pakistan, update is region dependent.

      Well no issues, do check for the update via Sony Update Service option by connecting your phone to it.

      If you still don’t get any update then we suggest you to manuall Update Manually Xperia P Flashing Jelly Bean 6.2.A.0.400 firmware ftf.

      Check our tutorial guide on it – http://gizmobolt.com/2013/05/14/update-manually-xperia-p-flashing-jelly-bean-6-2-a-0-400-firmware-ftf/

    Hi, I am interested in updating to JB and would not mind doing it manually, as no updates on PC companion or OTA are available here (Sudan). However, we have sanctions on the country and I cant use google play and download apps. Can the backups I make on PC companion be restored into the phone after the JB update? Thanks!!

    Regards,

    • Anurag Kumar July 24, 2013 at 11:07 pm - Reply

      it can be some software issue, try rebooting ( i guess you already did ) if problem still persists then do a factory reset ( wipe only settings not data ) and now check is problem still there…and report back.

    Good day, I updated my Xperia P in May and it was working well till my Album went blank. I had to repair the OS using my system Sony Companion. It reinstalled and worked well. Two days ago it started again. How can this problem be fixed permanently? Pls respond. Thanks

      Hi Clement,

      usually if you try to clear your phone cache memory using some software you might notice that your album goes blank. In this case go to apps>all>album.. in the options select clear data.. and the problem will be solved. I had this problem and got the answer in google.. Dont worry clear data does not remove photos, it removes some temporary files or something.. dont know what exactly but problem gets resolved by doing clear data from apps
