Report: Sony Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update now rolling out
Here’s some extremely good news for you if you happen to own a Sony Xperia Z. The update to Android 4.2.2 seems to finally be on its way to your device. This comes after months and months of waiting, and several delays. Sony initially promised to have the update ready “shortly after launch”, but that never happened. Interestingly, the Xperia ZL, which basically has identical innards to the Z, has started receiving its update to this version of Android first, a few days ago.
Thankfully though, there were only a few days of waiting left for Xperia Z owners after that point. Xperia Blog reports that several people have already gotten the update. The rollout is presumably staggered though, so it may take a while until you can update.
For now, the new software seems to only be out for non-branded devices sold unlocked in Taiwan (the C6602 model), also in Spain and Ukraine for the LTE version (C6603), as well as some carrier-specific variations in Austria, the Czech Republic, and the Netherlands.
The new firmware build has the version number 10.3.A.0.423. It should make it to all the Xperia Z units out there in the following weeks.
