To all people who are having problem with the 4.3 update firmware number 12.1.A.0.266. please be informed that SONY had planned a new update which is certified already by PTCRB, it will still be android 4.3 but with new firmwire Build number 12.1.A.1.192, it is said to be an update to fix all the bugs that we guys reported in sony official facebook page. but at the moment there is still no official announcement on when it will be available.
