Xperia M Android 4.3 testing scheduled says Vodafone Australia

Sony rolled Android 4.2.2 on Xperia M Dual but it left Xperia M on android 4.1.2, the then Xperia M users are asking us when they will get android 4.2.2 update. As per Sony’s earlier plan for android 4.3 update, only a few phones will be getting android 4.3 for now and the ones which are left are Xperia M, Xperia L, Xperia E, Xperia C.

We just noticed on Vodafone Australia blog where they have posted a software update schedule for some handsets, it seems Xperia M will directly be updated to android 4.3 from android 4.1.2, at present status of Xperia M android 4.3 is “testing scheduled”. Besides Xperia M, Xperia SP and TX are also seen with android 4.3 status as in “testing”.

Check the Xperia M android 4.3 software update plan of Vodafone Australia.

Xperia M Android 4.3 Update - Vodafone Australia When we asked concerned Vodafone Australia support that are they sure that Xperia M will get android 4.3 as Sony clearly mentioned on their blog that Xperia M will not get android 4.3 so in return we got a reply that “As soon as everything runs smoothly in testing phase, Xperia M will get android 4.3 update”.

Check below the copy of our conversation with the Vodafone Australia support on Xperia M Android 4.3 update confirmation.

Xperia M Android 4.3 testingIf somehow Xperia M gets Android 4.3 update by chance then it will be a big surprise for us as Xperia L left out with android 4.2.2 update and Xperia M getting Android 4.3. Kindly note that it may or may not come, as Sony has not come up with any official word on Android 4.3 for Xperia M till now.

Last night Xperia SP got new 12.1.A.0.266 firmware certified and Xperia T, V getting  9.2.A.0.295 firmware certified on PTCRB, it can be the case that it is the firmware which Vodafone Australia has put up on their blog.

How do you feel Xperia L users, if Android 4.3 is rolled on Xperia M in future and nothing for Xperia L. What do you think Xperia M users, excited about android 4.3 huh ? Drop your comments below.

Today Sony Mobile made a tweet confirming that it will be rolled  “end Jan / early Feb 2014 ” sure and they know that users are going mad over the delay in rolling and they have apologized for the same many times in there tweet.

Just now EXR Team has come up with so claimed Xperia V LT25i Android 4.3 9.2.A.1.131 firmware leaked ROM which is exact the same build number leaked for Xperia TX LT29i from them, a few days ago.

Recently we saw android 4.3 firmware leaking for Sony Xperia SP as 12.1.A.0.256 firmware and  for Xperia T as 9.2.A.0.278 firmware, android 4.3 firmware for both devices have been certified on PTCRB website but no certification has come up for Xperia TX yet. EXR Team has come up with so claimed Xperia TX LT29i Android 4.3 9.2.A.1.131 firmware ROM with a build number different from Xperia T and Xperia V.

As per EXR team 9.2.A.1.131 firmware will land on Xperia TX as android 4.3 and features same UI, Sony smart camera app and downloadable Xperia themes which we saw in android 4.3 update for Xperia Z family members. Until 9.2.A.1.131 firmware certification appears on PTCRB or any info from Sony it is hard to say that this firmware will be rolled out officially on Xperia TX.

New Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.256 firmware Certified for Xperia SP again

Sony Xperia SP users are furious over Sony for delaying android 4.3 update, back in December we saw android 4.3 12.1.A.0.253 firmware being certified for all variants of Sony Xperia SP and then later an alleged about phone screenshot from android 4.3 12.1.A.0.252 firmware was leaked. When we asked Sony Xperia support on Twitter that what is the progress with android 4.3 update for Xperia SP, thy replied “work is still in progress“.

Well it seems Sony is rectifying some major bugs from previous certified firmware as again a new Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.256 firmware has been certified for Sony Xperia SP on PTCRB website. It seems the final android 4.3 build for Xperia SP and should come soon now.

New Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.256 firmware Certified for Xperia SP again

At present Sony Xperia SP is on android 4.1.2 firmware and has many serious bugs like poor camera quality, battery and heating issues etc.

It is expected that Xperia SP will get same UI just like Xperia Z and other family members got in their android 4.3 firmware update. It should be now the matter of some days that this Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.256 firmware goes live for Xperia SP. Drop your comments Xperia SP users, are you satisfied with Sony’s policy is delaying updates over and over.

Sony delaying Android 4.3 for Xperia SP, No ETA yet “work in progress”

Xperia SP users are now bombarding us with comments when they will get android 4.3 firmware update as when it was promised to be delivered in December 2013 only. Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.253 firmware was certified a week ago on PTCRB website and a few days back we saw Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware for Xperia T and Xperia V getting certified on PTCRB and now questions arises is Xperia SP getting android 4.3 at the same time with Xperia T and Xperia V now ?

We asked official Sony Xperia Support on Twitter regarding the ETA of Android 4.3 Xperia SP update and they replied that “Sony is still working on it” and should come soon though no ETA was given by them.

New Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.256 firmware Certified for Xperia SP again

Check our conversation with Xperia Support Twitter. We presented them that users are frustrated over delay in rolling android 4.3 for Xperia SP.

 


When we asked will Xperia SP gets android 4.3 in 1st week of Jan 2014, they decided to remain mum on this issue.

 

 
We do expect that it should come soon in 1st week of Jan 2014.
What do you think Xperia SP users are you frustrated over Sony for delaying so much android 4.3 for Xperia SP ?

Xperia T and Xperia V Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware Certified

Finally a happy news for Sony Xperia T and Xperia V users who were asking again and again when android 4.3 update will come to their devices, just now we spotted PTCRB has certified Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware for both Xperia T and Xperia V. At present Xperia T and Xperia V are on android 4.1.2 9.1.A.1.145 firmware.

9.2.A.0.276 firmware changes the build from 9.1.A.X.XXX to 9.2.A.X.XXX which clearly indicates a significant major update i.e. Android 4.3 as promised by Sony. To our surprise no android4.3 firmware is certified for Xperia TX yet on PTCRB website.

Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware certified by PTCRB for Xperia V LT25i.

Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware certified by PTCRB for Xperia V LT25i. Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware certified by PTCRB for Xperia T

Both Xperia T versions LT30p and LT30a will be getting similar Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware update.

Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware certified by PTCRB for Xperia T

We expect Android 4.3 9.2.A.0.276 firmware soon will also be certified for Xperia TX.

It is speculated that Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V will get the same UI as which other Xperia Z family members got in their android 4.3 update recently and if it not comes then surely it would be a disappointment for the users who are eagerly waiting for it.

Android 4.3 firmware isn’t released for Xperia SP yet so we expect it should comes anytime now and as far as Xperia T, TX and V are concerned it may be rolled after 1st week of Jan 2014. What do you think Xperia T, TX and V users ? Are you happy now…Drop your comments below.

Xperia SP android 4.3 12.1.A.0.252 firmware screenshot Leaked – Test Build or Fake ?

A few moment ago we posted that PTCRB has certified Xperia SP Android 4.3 12.1.A.0.253 firmware officially now and just now a tipster sent us an alleged screenshot from the Xperia SP android 4.3 12.1.A.0.252 firmware. 12.1.A.0.252 firmware is just point number short of official 12.1.A.0.253 firmware certified.

Nothing can be said yet whether the screenshot is real or a fake one as 12.1.A.0.253 firmware is about to comes as Android 4.3 on Xperia SP very soon and this leaked screenshot must be from previous builds in testing, if it is legit it must be from test build from previous firmware.
