Sony Xperia T starts getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update

Sony Xperia T starts getting Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update
Sony has started rolling out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to its Xperia T in a few countries, just a week after we saw the alpha version surface for developers. The user-friendly 4.1 update however is now here, at least for users in countries like Germany, The Netherlands, Saudi Arabia and others.

The Jelly Bean update bumps up the software version of the Xperia T to 91.A.0.489 and brings improvements in the camera application, lock screen and dialer. You should also expect smoother performance of your device, courtesy of ‘Project Butter’.

Users reported updating via Sony’s PC Companion app, but the update is not yet up for all countries as the UK for example still hasn’t gotten it. It should arrive soon, though.

Bonds phone could probably make him milkshakes and drive his car remotely. The future of technology lies in the past via old sci fi films and such. Im sure you could find a reference to all technology today in old comics, magazines, concept art, and films.

Will this fix all the freezes, lags, touchscreen unresponsiveness and random reboots?

I am guessing you don't own a Sony Xperia T phone...You are just babbling because you don't like Sony or the question would be, "what the heck did you do to your phone"?

Great! Just flashed the generic world version onto my TL excluding the baseband. The phone just flies now - 6000+ on quadrant - very nice upgrade.

Although I am a long term Sony and Android user, I am disappointed in the performance of my Xperia T.. Suffers from terrible lag occasionally and after my latest firmware has random reboots even after complete reset.. hope jellybean fixes these issues
