Re: Xperia SP 4.3 update availability

I bought my Sony Xperia sp in December and it has been a fantastic phone until I updated it to 4.3 last week!! It has ruined my phone, I wish I had never done it! It is now so slow and some functions don't even work properly anymore! It can take upto a minute when u press on an app or anything else on the screen for that matter, for anything to happen! After reading other peoples problems I did what some suggested and did a factory reset. This has improved things slightly but still not back to how it was. I have read other people have downloaded the old version back onto their phone but the guys in the ee shop told me I couldn't go back to the old version once I'd downloaded the new one! If anyone has managed to get the old software back on and got rid of 4.3 could you let me know how I do it? Thank you.

You can go back - it's just that Sony don't give you the tools to do it.

Re: Xperia SP 4.3 update availability

Hello,

 

I sent mail to my operator (Tele 2 Croatia) about getting .201 update on my XSP. This is their answer:

 

Dear Sir,

First, we would like to thank you for showing patience you have shown in the expectations of our response.

We inform you that it has no plans to update on version 12.1.A.1.201. Last update was at version 12.1.A.0.266_Tele2-HR_1275-1882_R1B. and it is also the last update for the Sony Xperia SP devices from Tele2 offers.

Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Your Tele2 "

 

Now I have one question, is it possible that Tele2 Croatia stop new update if it is avaible for this device?

 

Thank You on answer and sorry about my bad english Slightly smiling Face

Same story.... Tele2 **bleep**.... 

Anyways, I decided to flash Central European 2 ROM. I made a backup of .266 ROM if there will be something wrong and I have to send phone to service, will upload it tomorrow and send you the link. 

To flash your device on other ROM, follow this tutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2658952

Re: Xperia SP 4.3 update availability

With the quick release that's meant to be due out by the 8th lets hope it includes the unbranded as all this waiting is getting ridiculous

It's still the .201 firmware, so it's not going to be significantly different to what's already out there. Remember Vodafone AU is still on .266.

Re: Xperia SP 4.3 update availability

But, surely no-one wants 4.3 if it screws their phone up!
