Xperia Z Android 4.3

The leaked Android 4.3 Jelly Bean version has been successfully ported to Sony’s flagship smartphone, although the port is still in beta.

Xperia Z owners that are confident enough to perform the installation can head on to xda-developers (links at the end of the post) and read more details about this Android 4.3 ROM made for their handset by Taylor Swift.

As always, we don’t encourage you to install custom software on your devices, and you’re going to be the only person responsible for whatever happens to your devices during such procedures.

That said, in case you want to turn your Xperia Z in a Google Play edition device by using this Android 4.3 port, make sure you follow the available instructions.

Android 4.3 is yet to be officially announced by Google, although we expect it to see it become official sooner rather then later – it will most likely be launched alongside the new Nexus 7 tablet.

Thanks to the leaked Android 4.3 version, we have already looked at what the new OS upgrade will have to offer, and they’re mostly improvements and refinements.
