Monitor Your Xperia Firmware Updates with a Website

It’s been a long time coming for some devices, but Sony is now rolling out Android 4.3 and 4.4 firmware updates to the majority of its lineup. But with so many devices and so many different versions of Android available for these different devices and their variants, it’s quite easy to become confused.

Because of the complexity, it’s useful to have a centralized service to inform you of the latest version for your device and whether you need to update. Thankfully, there is a tool that allows Windows users to check to see if they are running the latest firmware. But of course, this tool requires Windows, and there are plenty of Xperia owners running Linux or Mac.

There is nothing more universal than a website that can be accessed directly from almost every device. And because of this, XDA Forum Member pascalbrax created one with up-to-date information regarding software updates available for Sony devices. The site displays the the latest firmware and links to supporting forums in many languages. Most newer devices are included, and can be monitored from the site.

You can find a link to the website and more information by visiting the original thread. If you are a Sony Xperia owner and you are eagerly waiting for your KitKat update, now’s a good time to make sure you’re running the latest firmware.
