Will Xperia Go get KitKat, Sony?  If not, why?  If yes, when?

Hi there,

 

Unfortunately, Xperia Go will no longer receive any further software support.

There is nothing impossible to him who will try.  A. t. G. (356BC - 323BC)

Re: Will Sony release KitKat upgrade for Xperia Go?

Thanks, I will try to upgrade it to KitKat through other means, like using CM11 or Omni. 

 

Sony, it seems, thinks its bad business to leave their old phones to oblivion.  Perhaps to "force" consumers to buy their newer phones?  When they should realize a leaving customer may just switch to another brand (i.e. Samsung) altogether because of their refusal to take care of their phones out there, not just the high-end Z models I'm sick of hearing in their marketing channels.

 

Of course, if they did decide to upgrade 2012 Xperia Go, along with models U, P, Sola, etc. they would have had a loyal customer base.

Jaboneros after you install cm11 can you do a video review of it in English? Cause I am also interested but I can't find any review on YouTube in English

I see, as much as I like to do a video, that would mean I will need to repeat a whole bunch of steps, as I only have one Xperia Go Face with rolling Eyes

 

I will just make a new post how you can install CM11 in your Xperia Go, how's that?
