Robs, 18 Nov 2013Is der any possibility Sony wud upgrade Neo V with Kitkat... as kitkat requires 512mb Sony has already ceased development for the 2011 Xperias post the ICS update.So no question of updating neoV.And as far as android 4.4 is concerned Google has already stated support for devices with minimum 512mb ram.But it doesn't mean that its possible for an OEM to include support for it's entry level devices with 512 mb RAM since a lot of bloatware and custom skin is added for every other OEM device unlike Google's nexus phones which comes with stock android.
So your only hope of getting android 4.4 is to install a custom ROM from cyanogenmod or from XDA.
ankush, 09 Oct 2013plz help me anyone
my neo is restarting again n again
then how to root it
It is simple, but you have to understand what you are doing. If your phone is restarting again and again, it is simply because you have rooted device and you have flashed a custom rom( any rom compatible with your device).Or you made wrong choices while you were flashing your rom, using CWM.
I'll be honest with you, this has occurred to me a lot.Take off batteries, press keys,switch off and on holding volume key buttons, etc, this will have no effect whatsoever, It wont stop doing that, if you were to leave it like that it would stay that way forever, which means, bye bye mobile.
The solution: Flash the phone again, using the flashtool you have downloaded, go to flash tool,open it, there is a section which says firmware, wipe off if anything is there,copy paste the rom you have downloaded,do not zip the file , extract it, or try methods to install it, it doesn't happen, copy paste just the way it is , should be just a line,someting like Mt11i_blah blah(directly from the folder or the page where it shows download completed , it is just one line, example(Mt11i_4.1.b.0.587)copy paste it in the firmware folder,which will be there in the flash tool in it's downloaded format, not installed. Ultimate HD is pretty good and reliable.There are other roms also but it's up to you. I assume you know know how to flash a new rom, please follow the instructions step be step, you're problem is solved.One thing, you have to connect the phone to your computer via cable,and after you have opened flash tool, go to flash, select flash mode,you'll know what to do next. It will take time,if error comes ,try again, something missing it will be downloaded automatically, and you have to reinstate the flash mode again, follow instructions please. Be patient, it will take time, once done you can see in the screen , unplug and restart your mobile, do that and let it boot fully, you're problem is solved, by the way, if you are a root fan , then you'll have to root it again, because during flashing a new rom pretty mauch everytime the rooting facility is gone, but use the right tools, and it is easy pesy, I have an app which i use, it takes me 30 seconds to root my phone,yes and don't forget to install busybox,that is pretty easy once you have rooted your device.Check it out,if you'r e phone is still not starting, or goes into bootloop, or freezes, or if anything goes wrong.
ps: the Kernel is usually the reason for all the troubles, be careful with that, do not do any modification while flashing a new rom, unless if asked.
Ta,bye take care:-(
Still me again.I changed many custom rom's,even CyanogenMod Stable and Nightly,but so far the best ever rom for this phone to run smoothly and whitout bugs it's GB(4.0.2.A.0.62).So if anyone want a good phone,must to keep this GB or flash it!
Hello is this phone support skype videocall and instagram ? Please thank you.

Vijay, 15 Oct 2013Which Kernel did you use for UHD?My kernel was stock .587 kernel on UHD . Just after two days i moved to Anzumi white ROM , but found graphical glitches and then I flashed Honami Z1 ROM with sauve kernel which i found most stable.
kittu, 14 Oct 2013i have used it for 1.5 years. i have faced lot of issues
1.battery issue(0% or 1% shows even ... moreIts time for u to look Xda forums and root ur phone.
I never had to regret buying this phone, it had ups and downs.
when i bought this phone Samsung gsii was the best (specification) and costly phone(almost twice), but today my customized neo v on jb looks better than my friends gsii . After two years these look same and normal considering differences
