Sony Xperia 2012 Lineup Jelly Bean Upgrade
Back when Sony had released their X10 Android lineup, they gained a terrible reputation of not updating their phones to the newer Android OS versions. This caused a lot of trust issues with Sony and its customers, leading to many of Sony’s loyalists leave camp and move to smartphones by Samsung and HTC. So Sony changed their support model, supporting phones which they release for at least a year on. The first generation in this model was the Sony 2011 Xperia lineup (Arc, Neo, Mini), which Sony updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich earlier this year. In fact, the 2011 lineup got to taste ICS before the newer Sony Xperia 2012 lineup (S, P, U, Sola, Go). However, the update eventually came through, although a bit too late.
11 months after Google released their Android 4.0 ICS operating system, Sony finally seeded the update for their Xperia Sola, U and Go smartphones. A little too late considering Sony themselves were selling ICS packing smartphones costing as little as Rs. 9,499 (Xperia Tipo). And the update came at a time when Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was out for months and Android 4.2 Key Lime Pie is on the wings of release (LG Nexus 4).
Further, frustration built up when Sony Mobiles blog yesterday posted that their newest Xperia T/TX/V will receive Jelly Bean mid Q1 2013, followed by Jelly Bean for the Xperia J (which has a mediocre 1 GHz ARM Cortex A5 processor only), Xperia S Acro S and then later for the Xperia P and Go. This really put the owners of the Xperia U and Sola smartphones in a fix, all of them feeling trolled by what Sony just did to them, i.e. ditch them right in their faces.
However, today we can say that the Jelly Bean update is very much coming and we even have an approximate schedule as to when the updates will hit different smartphones from Sony’s 2012 Xperia lineup. This information comes from our sources within Sony Mobile Communications (and a 3rd party in between, trusted source).

mahi, 20 Dec 2012it s getting heated up...so u cant use it for long..poor storage capacity...only 4 gb...and al... moreThe heating up and the poor battery life will be very much related. Those of us whose phones last 2 to 3 days on a charge don't have overheating problem. Battery discharging quickly means energy has to go somewhere - i.e. heating it up, ultimately. How is your 2G/3G/wi-fi reception, what options (e.g. Bluetooth) do you have turned on, how bright is the screen, etc?

Ercelan Ensari, 20 Dec 2012What is the difference between these build numbers? Which is better? Mine is 6.1.1.C.1.0 Sony never release change-logs, and as you know I am still on the original ICS build and can find no reference to your version at all, so no idea mate :)
[deleted post]"LED Lamp" is the best I have found.
Simple interface, no excessive permissions unlike any of the others I considered. A torch does not need GPS or the ability to send text messages....
