    No update in Australia for acro s LT 26w. Its 10.58 am 31 05 2013. I think Australia and New Zealand are usually last to recieve most updates.

    I have upgraded to JB yesterday on my Sony XS (from the Philippines), I just wanna have feedback if people would have reviews on what are the additional features that comes with this OS. Thanks!

    So far what is so fascinating about the JB updated for Sony XS is fixing the camera auto focus problem, it has snapshot feature which takes pictures in .5 seconds, auto scene has been very sensitive in determining environment. The walkman feature has added options to look for the song in you tube (including lyrics), even to look for the song being played in google. Android beam (good news!) has been an added feature for this NTC capable device. Power management has been added to make sure data or wifi is not working if the phone screen is off (downloads though will continue till it’s finish), Google now works just fine, it gives you additional ‘cards’ to weather and whatever interest you have, google voice also is quite exciting (works like siri) will put additional if I can just have time to check out the other features..Hope someone can post an article or video of the added features as what I’m trying to discover would be the multi-tasking capability of JB in XS:) so far so good πŸ™‚ Follow me @thediored

    Still no update here in the Philippines for my Xperia Acro S! In fact, I’ve been so problematic with my unit because no update have been installed since I updated it to ICS last year. Even minor updates cannot be installed! the status bar always says “initializing” and does not continue at all. Any help from Xperai Community is highly appreciated. thank you.

      its available .. dont use phone wifi to update .. use PC Companion .. automatic it detects the new update .. πŸ™‚ im from Bukidnon, Philippines!

    Just updated my phone last day. The update is nice but there is a problem with the video recording. I notice there is a noticeable frame drops in the video. They added the portrait video recording which is nice and when taking pictures, the camera is much much faster than the ICS though there’s still no improvements on the noise when taking pictures in low-light conditions. The layout is nice and also the added widget. I must say, the Sony UI has improved a lot due to the fact that it’s less cluttered.

    REMINDER TO THOSE WHO DIDNT GOT UPDATE YET! please use PC COMPANION! i didnt get new update on phone but when i plugged using PC Comp ..it automatically detects the new update! CHEERS! im from Philippines and using XPERIA SL! πŸ™‚

    Sony you seriously need to learn some lessons.
    1. Make sure there are no leaks on dates that can’t be met
    2. when you release an upgrade say for a country on a particular model, all the models with different build numbers should get the update same day

    nevertheless, we users in the UK are really pissed off by your incompetency….US and UK are the largest markets and no update to UK owners compared to rest of asia…..you’re making a lot of mistakes and its time to learn from it and ensure not repeated…

    Guys, Please don’t just wait for OTA (over the air) update for your phone.

    DO TRY using the Sony Companion Suite !!

    I just updated my Xperia S (LT26i) with Sony Companion Suite a few minutes ago (now it’s 4.1.2)

    I’m in Sydney, Australia……..Good luck!

  12. malik says:

    are people in this board serious. jelly bean has bean out for a while for acro s. just plug your phone to the computer, open sony companion and update. if there is non update for you just read about how to unlock flash roms without opening bootlocker and flash firmware version 55 ( or 58) and then plug it in the computer and update to jelly bean. im from sweden and ive had jelly bean since the beginning of may

    1. Johnnie Yang says:

      As I’ve mentioned in an earlier reply, I’m in Sydney and I updated mine Xperia S 3 weeks ago via Sony PC Companion !
      Do plug your phone to PC via a USB cable to run Sony PC companion for an update !
