Sony offers Jelly Bean ROM for advanced developers with an unlocked Sony Xperia T

0. phoneArena 25 Jan 2013, 17:30 posted on

Sony is offering owners of an unlocked Sony Xperia T, an alpha version of the Jelly Bean similar to what Sony did last year with a release of the alpha version of Ice Cream Sandwich; there are some caveats including some rights that you will have to sign away just in case the update happens to brick your phone leaving you with an expensive paperweight...

so whats the point of testing....? wakelocks are usually kernal related, dealing with bluetooth and modems.... no signal no problem... nice try sony but at least give a functioning rom to test before you declare the warrenty is void

Sony disabled such functions so that others won't be able to sell a phone with unstable jellybean i think lol... not sure though, just my guess

Oh! Are they still planning to update their current phones??? Its taken so long i began to think they had also given up hope, even the 2yearld GS2 is already receiving 4.1.2, happy waiting to the Sony users, especially them poor Xperia S users, gotta feel bad for them, lots of promise, hardly any delivery, its a damn shame.

The ics of gs2 announced at March 2012, but my sister just updated at November 2012, now the jellybean announced for Spain only, and you have to wait at earliest June, if you unlucky enough

Whats the fun if nothing required would work. Some stunt to gain visibility in media because GS2 is getting JB update and Sony's ICS update and a fix firmware after that has hosed many devices camera functioning (Xperia P for instance)?
