Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OTA Rolling Out to Xperia J (ST26i)

Great news for Sony Xperia J owners out there! Like its brothers, the Xperia T/TL (LT30p, LT30at, LT30z) and Xperia V (LT25i), the Xperia J (ST26i) will finally see the much anticipated Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OTA update rolling out to handsets.

This is amazing in itself since the Xperia J only has a single-core CPU and 512 MB of RAM. The kernel version is 3.4 and the firmware is 11.2.A.0.21.

Rumor has it that the Xperia TX (LT29i) will be seeing its update to 4.1.2 Jelly Bean goodness here in the next couple of weeks. So fear not Sony fans, the company is working hard to ensure their Xperia handsets stay up-to-date in an ever-changing mobile market, making it that much easier to live with signing that two year service commitment…mmm, okay, maybe just a little easier anyway.

AT&T Galaxy S III now receiving Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OTA

tagged , , , , ,

For those of you who own the Galaxy S III on AT&T and absolutely despise Samsung’s Kies desktop software (you have every right to), you’ll be excited to know that the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is now officially rolling out to handsets over-the-air. As expected, users can expect all the new features that come with the dot upgrade, including a refreshed TouchWiz, Google Now integration and the incredible smoothness of Project Butter. 

If the update hasn’t already shown up, you’ll need to manually check for the new firmware by heading to Settings > About Phone > Software Updates. You’re going to need to be connected to Wi-Fi to download the file and at least 30% battery life to complete the process. Godspeed. We’ll see you on the other side.
