The main motive for upgrading Xperia SP to 4.3 was the solution for the wifi problem. If it worked properly I would probably never upgrade to 4.3. So, 4.1.2 was not totally bug free in my case.

+1 for making that a sticky. It'll save a lot of people a lot of time.

I agree, this update is soo bad...phone was impecable on 4.1.2, really snappy always sharp and responsive, in 4.3, total lags, screen unresponsive...that in the first day after PCC update, I'm CE user, full stock. Battery seems a tad better, but overhall performance went downhill.

Re: Sony Xperia SP destroyed after 4.3 update - a desperate user final thoughts.

i cannot find Singapore Version of Generic 4.1.2 - 12.0.A.2.254 or my Telco - Singtel Version of 4.1.2 - 12.0.A.2.254? i msg Sony Mobile Singapore thru Facebook but no respond. Where can i get SG version of android 4.1.2 12.0.A.2.254? i google it nowhere to be found only can get Telco M1 Version of 4.1.2 12.0.A.2.254. Anyone can help? i really love this phone which i don't believe is hardware issue. Sony don't fix at least give proper solution/instruction to downgrade...

Games and apps run slower than at 4.1.2. In GTA VC at max settings is very laggy in 4.3. In 4.1.2 run smooth and without lags. 4.1.2 is better :-)
