[OTA Captured!] Android 4.3 Now Rolling Out to the Sony Xperia SP on Vodaphone AU

A little over a month ago, we first caught wind that an Android 4.3 build was being prepared for release on the . And just one day later, we saw an Android 4.3 leak appear for the device. Then, Sony came clean about its update plans for the popular mid-range device through Twitter.

Now, the official Android 4.3 update for the Sony Xperia SP is finally here, although it’s currently only being rolled out to devices on Vodafone Australia. But what about those running other variants? Well, getting the OTA file is no big deal, as a simple build.prop modification posted by XDA Senior Member antkalaitzakis96 will allow you to receive the OTA notification as well, although it’s unlikely that the OTA will apply successfully on other variants. However, XDA Senior Member Mahthenewgamer1998 has created an FTF of the latest C5303 12.1.A.0.266 update, which can be found in his firmware dump thread.

Those looking to get in on all the talk surrounding the update can do so by heading over to XDA Forum Member Tejstar‘s update discussion thread for this specific update and Forum Member Danny_f55‘s Jelly Bean and KitKat discussion thread. And if you’ve patiently waiting or have already applied the update, don’t be shy—leave us your thoughts in the comments below!
