Jellybean update now available for Xperia S, SL, & Acro S

Sony Philippines has announced on their Twitter page that the much awaited Android 4.1 Jellybean update is now available for the Xperia S, SL, and Acro S.


Sony isn’t exactly prompt in pushing updates for the said devices (they confirmed the Jellybean update in October of last year) but it’s good to know that it’s finally here. According to @SonyPHinc, the Android 4.1 Jellybean update is now available for the Xperia S, Xperia SL, and Xperia Acro S.

We don’t have the said devices on hand so we can’t personally check the updates ourselves but if you do, you can check the update via OTA on your Xperia device, or via Sony PC Companion for Windows or Sony Bridge for Mac.

    I read somewhere online that the reason Sony was so late in pushing the JB update to the S, the SL, and the Acro S is that Qualcomm was also late in providing them with JB drivers for the chipset used in these models. So, I suppose, Sony isn’t to blame for this.

    Anyway, better late than never. I’m currently exploring JB 4.1 on my Acro S. Will stay on the stock Sony ROM until a decent stock-based custom ROM surfaces in XDA.

      Unlike the updates for the Xperia P and Go, this is actually a quality update as the kernel is updated to 3.4.0 like the Xperia Z. Qualcomm is the one to be thanked for this.

    Lmao Sony PH is late. But better than never right? Got it on the first day of release (May 30) via flashtool for mac. Flawless except for the 1080p recording.
