Sony mobile have confirmed the roll out of JellyBean has started for the Xperia S.
Although I should imagine it'll be a while before O2 customers see it, the ball is rolling!
Personally can't wait for the ftf to appear on certain websites so i can try it!
A plea to MI5 etc, those websites you use to see what firmware has been released on what networks/regions etc.... you don't happen to know the Sony one do you??
Just to let others know who maybe considering jelly bean update before O2 release I have followed the Carlbot youtube video (on this forum page 3 I think) and have Jelly Bean on my unrooted Xperia S. It was very easy and worked straightaway. Just took a bit of fiddling to get the flashtool due to excessive advertising on the download link.
It's worth doing as the phone works really well now.
I have been tempted to do this, and I have used FlashTool before on my X10, but would still rather wait for the official release to my phone through PCC or SUS.
Mind you, I think Sony have cancelled the roll-out, as they are now already releasing a new version of JB for the Xperia S, version 6.2.B.0.211, which will fix camera and wifi issues apparently, among other things.
If that's the case and Sony are doing another update I will await for the official update for that, however after 2 days on Jelly Bean there have been problems so far. The camear seemed to work fine and i've not had any wifi problems.
As it appears though if Sony do another revision it will take even longer before O2 release it and ill be lucky to see it before I update/upgrade my phone in 18 months time.
Would be nice to hear from O2 on the matter, but as Perksie pointed out above, I have an unbranded phone (my SI number is 1257-3114) and therefore I should/will get it from Sony, but it seems that the UK hasn't been receiving the update yet 😞
Same unbranded SI here and no update 😞 nice to know am not the only one though, looks like waiting for a bug fix version .211 to come out
well You heard it! they said week 23-24. So i think it would be on the end of week, june 8th or june 15th. Just be patience. It should there on june 15th im sure. Meanwhile enjoy your buggy JB! lols
Well you can flash .200 using latest flashtool if you wish. But don't waste your time for buggy firmware (much issues on this firmware). Just wait for new firmware update .211 hopefully at the end of next week. You may check later via SUS or easily download the official FTF file and flash it. Cheers mate!
As the webpage says .200 is available in the UK and if you are unbranded you should have it by now.
My phone is Network Locked to O2 but did some tinkering and got it direct from Sony.
My SI is now 1252-0023 (Generic) instead of 1257-0985 (Network Locked). This was achieved by rooting and flashing XZX-Xperience Rom and then connected to PCC.
I'm now on official .200 Generic World. Buggy as hell but now able to get updates direct from Sony.
.211 shouldn't be too far in the future as it's been certified already.
Dear o2, please hurry up, the second release is out now, and still no word from your good selves! Yes I know I can do all sorts of things to get it somewhere else, but I would rather have your tested version.
As mentioned in previous posts, O2 will not give any time frame or response to this. They are of the opinion 'you get it when we say so'
[EDIT] Also, the .211 firmware has only been certified and is not available yet.
I was being ironic! I have been an o2 user since they started, I know their shortcomings, as well as their qualities!
As for .211 it is available, take a look at the Sony forums, at least two people I can see have it without rooting their phones.
I will however continue to wait, even if I think o2 should get a move on:smileyhappy:
