The major changes in 6.1.A.2.55 are bugfixes related to issues raised by local operators, so this update is network operator specific. For more information if you will get this update you can contact your network operator.

For those that know how to manually flash using Flashtool then the newest firmware can be downloaded from my Google Drive below

LT26i 6.1.A.2.55 SG Generic (1257-6921)

The thing is given many of us laid out an initial payment of around £400 for the Xperia S it isnt unreasonable to expect some level of technical support from Sony without resorting to using flashtool.

I'm not asking or telling you to use Flashtool I am merely providing the firmware for those that like to update there phones manually or like to test out other country firmwares and other Firmware versions or revisions - Me I'm still using Gingerbread untill they fix the wi-fi issue which is my biggest issue
