Three UK Xperia T Now Receiving Official Jelly Bean 4.1.2 Update

So, after Sony released the official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean firmware for its Xperia T earlier this month, the UK users of the same device had been able to install and test the latest Android features and apps on their own smartphones. In UK, O2 was the first retail to provide the Jelly Bean OS for the Xperia T, but now Three UK announced that its customers will also be able to update the Xperia T to stock Jelly Bean ROM.

The announcement was leaked via Three UK’s official Twitter page, so you can anytime check whether if the update has been made available for your phone, or you still have to wait for the same. Remember that this is the official release of the Android 4.1.2 firmware, so the OS improvement will not “embrace” all the Xperia T devices at the same time; some users will receive the software sooner than others so be patience.

Another aspect that must be known is related to the method in which the Jelly Bean ROM will be offered. The Three UK Sony Xperia T will not be able to OTA receive the software, so if you want to flash the OS on your phone you will have to use the latest version of Sony PC companion software. Therefore, before applying the upgrade, make sure that your handset is fully charged (or else it will get turned off in the middle of the update operation) and also backup the Xperia T data. It is unlikely to lose your personal info while trying to install the firmware so ensure that your text messages, call logs, contacts, internet settings, market apps and everything else are in safe hands.

That’s all for now, so there you have it; starting from now Three UK is rolling out the Jelly Bean software for the Sony Xperia T handsets. Test the new OS and do share your impressions and opinions with us by using the comments section from below.

    It’s quite good on my wife and son’s phones, one was unlocked on purchase, and the other on O2. They received their updates about 4 days ago.

    Mine? I have an unlocked one that was locked to T-Moblie before, no sign of an update. Asked Sony when I can expect one, and they just said sometime in Feb or March.

    Yes all are Xperia T’s.

    Another peculiarity of in the world of Android that I didn’t have to contend with when I was on iOS.
