Xperia Z

The Xperia Z is yet to receive its Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update, but handset owners can apparently install a leaked version of the OS.

According to Xperia Blog, the firmware for the Xperia Z is available, at least for those models that come with unlocked bootloaders, courtesy of xda-developer DooMLoRD.

The leaked firmware (version 10.3.A.0.407) works on models C6602/C6603, after having been “adapted from developer handsets to work with production models.” The developer warns users not to install the ROM on the Xperia ZL, Xperia Tablet Z or any other handset, and reminds you that certain issues are to be expected.

As always, we’re not advising you to install any unofficial ROM on your devices, and that, if you do, you’re going to be the only person responsible for whatever happens with your devices. That said, you’re entitled to do whatever you want to your handsets and tablets, but make sure you follow available guides and back up personal data if performing such tasks.

    I would have loved this if T-Mobile had the Xperia Z eariler and I didn’t pick up an 8X. Ah well, Lumia 925 here I come; yes im hooked on Windows Phone now.

    I hope it didnt take too long, sony need to change a lot of stuff in the Xperia ZL, lockscreen is one of them, not even a second wallpapper, neiter quick launchs…

    fm radio doesnt have a change button for the favorites, only the favorite list,

    some service called media server sucks the hell out of my battery

    and worst of all, the god daam launcher, ffs someone need to get the guys who created thar sh*t and put their heads in a stake, i meam: zero personalization, app grid background is a transparent gray, just to make the screen feel evem more washed, nova launcher just turned mandatory

    the tiny apps, can only be used one at time, thats sucks, and the floating shortcut only works in one side of the screen why??

    its an awsome hardware, beatifull (except the back, it looks like LG optimus l7, pretty ugly) but the software on it could be a lot beter
