Leaked Android 4.3 Now Available for the Sony Xperia SP and T

You may recall that just yesterday, we talked about how the Android 4.3 update for the  and  was drawing near. We were made aware of this thanks to XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD, who shared screenshots of the latest test builds for both devices and was taking requests for any other screenshots that users might be interested in.

Now just a few hours after his previous “sneak peak,” DooMLoRD has decided to make the firmwares available. Initially, the firmware was meant for developer (brown) devices only. Luckily, DooMLoRD was able to get the update to boot on production devices. However, users should note that this is for devices with unlocked bootloaders only.

For those keeping track, the builds come in at version 9.2.A.0.278 for the Xperia T and 12.1.A.0.256 for the Xperia SP, and both are Android 4.3 with a Linux 3.4.0-based kernel.

Are you looking forward to giving the leaked 4.3 builds a try on your own devices? Let us know in the comments below.

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
