Please, can anyone tell me if my phone is already rooted then does updating the phone through OTA (not through PC) keeps the root or I have to re-root again after updating?
DJ, 10 Mar 2014hi shantanu, I am not a tech expert....are to talking abt XSP phone.... can you elaborate m... moreYou can still upgrade to 4.4, as long as your phone is upgradable to 4.4 you can always root your phone first and install kitkat after rooting, it doesn't has to be thro Sony.But you do this on your own risk.I will suggest to watch as many rooting and kitkat upgrade vedios on youtube as you can to get a clear workaround of the same as my instructions may not be that user friendly ( my steps for rooting are different than usual,I use 4 diff apps for rooting and updating, I have tried JB 2 times but it's a total waste,I lost all my data and contacts with JB but not with Kitkat.Kitkat is the best OS till now.
I got updated my sp with 4.3 over that i also did factory reset. Still lagging issue is there specailly for Whats up, bbm, somethimes for clean master, messenging, phone applications.
Touch is no much difference. Major problem is i hardly get 150 or less memory most of the times.
jashan, 11 Mar 2014plz backup ur data and do a simple factory reset...i had lagging prblm when i updated to 4.3 b... moreyes i think it works because it will delete all apps that are installed,[ some apps are causing problems on the phones ] but i think after re-installing the apps/games the lagging problem will occur again.
dgamer , 10 Mar 2014Guys same here my so also hangs to much plz backup ur data and do a simple factory reset...i had lagging prblm when i updated to 4.3 but after factory reset,the phone is buttery smooth!!!!

It refuses to upd... moreif i were you do not update the phone yet to the current firmware 12.1.A.0.266, as you can see a lot of people are having problem with this. i will advise you to wait for the new 4.3 but with new firmware Build number 12.1.A.1.192. no official announcement yet on when it will be released though.
Black RK, 11 Mar 2014Ok, I'm getting the firmware version 12.1.A.0.266 and haven't got any other. It refuses to upd... moreDo not upgrade yet dude! The first release is still not stable. It has lots of bugs.
i updated my xperia sp last week....now it lags after updating to 4.3..... it worked with the earlier jelly bean so well.... hoping for a bug fix from sony
Black RK, 11 Mar 2014Ok, I'm getting the firmware version 12.1.A.0.266 and haven't got any other. It refuses to upd... moreThere is no update available as of now for android 4.3 as of now and most users are facing problems while using the current firmware version of 4.3.....my advice is that u had better stick to 4.1.2 for now till a newer firmware for 4.3 arrives
Black RK, 11 Mar 2014Ok, I'm getting the firmware version 12.1.A.0.266 and haven't got any other. It refuses to upd... moreYeah .... another update with new firmware (12.1.A.1.192) is coming soon hand hope it will solve aal the problems that have been encountered in 4.3 Update (12.1.A.1.192) ..... because 12.1.A.0.266 has some bugs...... so I would suggest you to wait for new firmware...... 12.1.A.1.192...:)
darsh, 10 Mar 2014does it support OTG???Yes it does..... for DEMO visit..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLYqYbyXJi4
Ok, I'm getting the firmware version 12.1.A.0.266 and haven't got any other. It refuses to update through pc companion as my Windows is above Windows 7, which is strange as this wasn't a problem before. I just wanna ask, is there any further updates than the one I mentioned above and in case yes, is it a good one or as bad as the first exposure of 4.3
does someone has solve this problem, on my sp I had done all things so it can work properly but no result as last option I should go for service centre
