Re: When are we getting the latest update?

I don't know... I can't understand why it's so difficult to simply release the 4.3 to Xperia SP.
The hardware of Xperia SP is extremely powerful, I know, today we find better phones, but Xperia SP still being awesome.

Sorry for my expression, but what the f@k that we haven't this update released in time? And what the f@k that happens to nobody (from Sony) answer/comment in our  thread, here?

Completely disappointing.

Re: When are we getting the latest update?

The truth from an XperiaBlog reader

Guys don't you understand this marketing trick ?

Sony will not release any android 4.3 for it's older phones BEFORE it's new phones release date ( Xperia Z1 Compact and what ever is coming this month ),

as a matter of fact the 4.3 update for Xperia (SP, V, T, TX, L, etc) is already completed few weeks ago,
but the problem is with (THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT) which's the one who request all updates to stand still, until they release the new devices, by doing that ( They'r expecting many of the old phone users will sell their old ones and buy the new one ) .

as i said it before, SONY's the technology genies, and the only problem Sony has's that stupid marketing department which's caused many technology delays for Sony products .

Marketing may be true, but the paradoxical idea if I disappointed by Sony I buy a new Sony morning.

Re: When are we getting the latest update?

  Well, finally as we anticapted we got a new Certification happened for our SP.

 

 

HW VersionSW VersionRequest TypeDate Certified
A12.1.A.0.266ECOJan 29, 2014
A12.1.A.0.263ECOJan 16, 2014
A12.1.A.0.253ECO

Dec 23, 201

 

  After the two failures, lets keep our fingers crossed to have this Certification comes true and sony really perform the update.

 

http://www.xperiablog.net/2014/01/29/new-android-4-3-firmware-certified-for-xperia-sp-with-build-12-...

 

 

   Since all the top end model got the updates by now, it is our turn now..  If I aint wrong, roll overs will happen between Feb 3 - 5th, 2014.. 

 

    Lets hope that this time, Sony wont give us a disappoinment.. like the past...

Re: When are we getting the latest update?

XDA Developers user lee480 says:
"I can confirm all those stupid conspiracy theories are completely nonsense. The one who is spreading those lies should be shamed for life. Basically what happened to the firmware was that it failed some reliability test. It was originally scheduled to be released in the end of December - but, when Sony submitted the software to the providers, those providers failed to certify it - like Vodafone.
http://community.vodafone.com.au/t5/...14/ba-p/309705

I suggest you kids (not all) wait patiently. You guys don't want a half baked firmware and later start moaning like mad mummies (Amumu)."

Hmm, I wonder what really went wrong with the testing... Hope this new certified version will pass that test. Fingers crossed everyone.

Re: When are we getting the latest update?

Yes but there is a new certification, therefore that is probably an older certification, not this one.
