-You need a flashtool and you need to download the firmware. It may seem difficult at first but it's actually pretty easy to do, just follow everything what the video says. If you get any problems just reply. Hope this helps.

**I recommend you guys to take time and read this, especially those people asking about the Android OS.**

Good day, everyone. For those people asking if updating the Android OS of Xperia Sola will make it better, to be honest, no, it won't, and this is coming from a hardcore Sony Xperia/Sony Ericsson fan. I've had my phone for about a year and a half now, and I just successfully downgraded my OS just a week ago, after putting up with the ICS version for about 7 months. Well the only visible change the you will notice after upgrading it will be the display. You won't notice the sluggish part until the next 2 weeks, and I'm telling you it's going to be a nightmare. I wasn't able to play games, even midrange games, surf the net because it takes too long to respond. And the worst that I (or you too may) experience is how it takes too much time to make and answer a call, there would even have a time that I missed the call because it just kept on ringing even after being swiped to answer.

-So just enjoy the GB OS, and make the most out of it.

> In reply to okak @ 2012-12-30 11:28 from wfF7 - click to readMy HTC was stolen. I saw Sola in H Norman - decided to check it out on the net. Next day Sola was gone!!!! but the salesman rung another HN and I bought the last - demo! I like the phone and I agree with you about HTC USB functions - excellent. With Sola I can't access fotos to transfer to PC because all I can access is one 'card' and if the camera (3rd party) saves it somewhere else it takes a lots of time to find and copy to one of 2 SD cards. So because of this problem, my next phone will be HTC.

The sony xperia sola is a really very good phone,just a bit overpriced(keep in mind the motorola moto g etc)
I have been using this phone since 4 months,and it's pretty cool.
The text looks so crisp and photos and video look amazing.The novathore dual core is immpressive and can run heavy games as well(i never suffered a lag while playing clash of clans),gta sa,3,nfs shift,mostwanted,asphalt 7 are also supported.
The ram is not enough,since 128 mb(not surr) is reserved for the gpu only 368 mb is accesible and almost 150 mb is used by background processes,apps etc.But the dual core won't let it it to be a let down
The battery life is ok i can get about 18 hours of heavy usage.
the design is simple yet good looking.
internal storage is ok.
and ics is not super fast nor super smooth but is usable(without doubt)

I fully respect the opinions of others, but for me it is a good phone. Probably not the biggest, fastest or with built-in front camera but it is far better than others.

It is fast enough if you know how to delete files like cache files or clear the internal data after some time, big enough that it still fit in your pocket perfectly.

- stereo recording will now be mono
- adobe's flash no longer available
- lagging
I am using from the beginning GB. Very happy with it.
Greetings.
