Jelly Bean update for Xperia Tipo

Dear Sony,

I am using Tipo from last 2 months with ICS but I still dont understand why you people haven't gave a JB update for this. In one of the post I have read that to give a JB update it depends on lot of parameters like resolution, internal storage, RAM, CPU speed etc... But when I saw a JB update for Samsung Galaxy Music I was totally shocked. Tipo has same CPU speed, internal storage, and a better screen resolution(except RAM tipo 2.9Gb usable music 4 Gb usable). I kindly request you to give one last update to this mobile.:smileycry:

Re: Jelly Bean update for Xperia Tipo

It's quite easy, it's because they released a newer phone. The Sony Xperia E.
Which has (partly) about the same specs as Tipo, but comes with Jellybean out of the box.
If they'd update Tipo, less people would buy the new E.

Also, the Tipo hasn't got less RAM than the Galaxy music.
The amounts you posted were the internal memory's.
Both phones got 512MB RAM, but the Galaxy Music has got 850Mhz processor where we've got an 800Mhz one.

Re: Jelly Bean update for Xperia Tipo

As of right now, there are no plans to update Xperia Tipo to JellyBean/4.1. All information regarding updates are found on our blog.

Re: Jelly Bean update for Xperia Tipo

Re: Jelly Bean update for Xperia Tipo

read this, Xperia U, Sola, Tipo, Miro are not on the list.

http://blogs.sonymobile.com/2012/10/19/continuing-android-software-upgrades-jelly-bean-for-2012-xper...

Our latest models, Xperia T and Xperia TX are shipping across global markets as you read this post, and Xperia V is on the way shortly – these smartphones will begin to receive the upgrade to Jelly Bean from mid-Q1 2013.

Next up, we can confirm the global versions of Xperia S, Xperia acro S, Xperia ion, Xperia P,Xperia go and Xperia J will be upgraded to Android 4.1* – we will be back with detailed timings for these in due course.

We were glad to provide the Android 4.0.4 upgrade for our 2011 Xperia portfolio across most markets and the majority of models but, after thorough evaluation, we have concluded they will not be upgraded beyond Ice Cream Sandwich.

Re: Jelly Bean update for Xperia Tipo

if you guys seriously want Jelly Bean on your xperia Tipo ST21i then install a custom rom.

Sony Ericsson have made it law to be able to unlock your bootloader on all Sony Ericsson handsets to allow for the install of custom roms.

I have Jelly Bean 4.1.2 on mine and it blazingly fast and as smooth as butter :smileyhappy:

head here for full information of how to do this .... If Sony Ericsson wont update to JB 4.1.2 .... Do it yourself, safely and easily ...
