New Android Jelly Bean firmware rolls out on Sony Xperia S, Xperia SL and Xperia Acro S

Just as promised Sony is now rolling out the new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Xperia S, Xperia SL and Xperia Acro S for bugs fix. The update brings some great improvement for these 3 Xperia smartphones and it is now available for download via Sony PC Companion in Malaysia.


Along with performance and stability tweaks / improvements, here’s a official changelog (of sorts) from Sony detailing what’s fixed and included:

For camera, we’ve…

  • addressed an abnormality in the white balance
  • improved the “Quick Launch” button functionality
  • smoothed out (1080p) video recording, minimizing lag

For apps, services & data, we’ve…

  • streamlined Exchange Active Sync, particularly when running an encrypted set-up
  • boosted connection stability for 2G network data
  • ensured preferences on 3rd party apps remain after reboot – not a common problem, but we understand it can be a frustrating one!

For battery, we’ve…

  • economised power consumption, and heat dispersion for longer life
  • corrected juice level notificationsespecially when running low

And for hardware & UI, we’ve…

  • introduced a home key long-press to launch Google Now, and a double-press to launch Recent Apps
  • made sure the volume “up” button is fully responsive
Some users have report that the update so far is stable. Do you update your phone to this firmware? Leave a comment let us know how was it.
