Bugs in Jelly Bean firmware 6.2.B.0.200 firmware for Xperia S, SL, Acro S

  • Battery drain issues – After Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware update, battery drain issue issue arose. Now battery is draining at 2x rate as compared to ICS. Before only 9-10% battery used to drain after listening to songs on headset for 2 hours on ICS but now on Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware, around 10% battery drain in 1 hour listening to songs.
  • No STAMINA Mode – Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware update for Xperia S, SL, Acro S had “Extended battery mode” only but when battery reaches 14%, phone shows warning of “switching to Battery Stamina Mode”. What does that mean actually ? Sony missed Stamina mode so why phone is showing warning for that.

  • 1080P HD video capture lag – While capturing 1080p full HD video in Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware, the video capturing lags so much. Fps for 1080p videos have been reduced now. Poor quality of videos are captured.

A lot many other issues are reported like absence of apps like MyXperia, Screen Mirroring etc which were present in the leaked version. Hopefully Sony fix all above bugs soon in the new Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.211 firmware update. Xperia S, SL and Acro S users waited so long for the Jelly Bean, it should be atleast bugs free.

  • Video capturing in 1080p is lagging very badly 🙁 The video capturing frame is not steady at all. Auto-focus is very bad in video capturing.  Frame rate reduced to 18frames /second. Data rate and total bit rate also reduced. Check the comparison of 1080p HD videos in Xperia SL Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware and Android 4.0.4 ICS firmware

Poor Quality of 1080p HD Videos in Xperia SL LT26ii 6.2.B.0.200 jelly bean firmware

How to Solve Wi-Fi and Mobile Data Connectivity Problem / Issue in Xperia S, SL , Acro S Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware ?

As I mentioned above about the Wi-Fi connectivity and mobile data connectivity issue in the firmware update, here is a solution. What you are facing actually is this that Wi-Fi connects but you are not able to surf anything and same is the case with mobile data. I also got the Error 927 in Google Play when I was updating any app via connecting Wi-Fi and mobile data. Also tried downloading the internet and MMS settings for the phone but unable to do so. After re-updating the software 3 times via SUS I found no improvement in the connectivity issues. What did I do ? I repaired my Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware again on Xperia SL LT26ii (India region) again by PC Companion. And it has solved my problem. Now my Xperia SL Connects very smoothly with the Wi-Fi and mobile data. Though the mobile data speed is a bit slow in both 2G and 3G mode, it may be due to any firmware bug. Lag in 1080p video capturing has also been resolved to greater extent but it is there still 🙁 Try repairing you Jelly Bean 6.2.B.0.200 firmware on your phone via PC Companion and see if the issue is still there if you still see the issue do let us know.

The issue should have been resolved now 🙂 If you have got the update in your region, please post your reviews in the comment section regarding this update.
