Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update unofficially available
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.
Considering these leaks, chances are that an official Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 update is just around the corner, but we’ll keep you posted on its roll out.
