Sony Xperia T, TX, and V Join the SP and Receive Official Android 4.3

Just a few days ago, we talked about how Android 4.3 was starting to roll out (and was subsequently ripped and repackaged as an FTF) to the . Now, Sony has begun rolling out the Android 4.3 goods to other members of the Xperia family: the Xperia T, TX, and V.

In addition to bumping up the Android version to 4.3, the latest update also updates Sony’s entire native app portfolio to their latest versions. Furthermore, the update also brings support for “Xperia Themes” UI customization, as well as some security tweaks and changes to Battery Stamina mode.

The update has now begun rolling out, but as always, availability may vary by carrier and region. That said, if you’ve got an Xperia T and want to get in on the update a bit early, head over to Forum Member macallen‘s FTF thread, which should contain the goods in about an hour. We’ll keep you informed if we spot similar repackaged firmware threads for the other devices as well.

Those looking to learn more about the update should visit XDA Senior Member meyourchum‘s update discussion thread. Don’t forget to rant about carrier-imposed delays or gloat about your shiny new Android 4.3 build 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....
