Sony Xperia V Gets Leaked Android 4.3 Firmware Too!
Among the most recent Sony devices to receive the highly anticipated Android 4.3 update, the Sony Xperia V has been left in the dark with regards to leaks and other news. First came the firmware leaks for the Xperia SP and T, courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD. Then not long after, Xperia TX owners also got their hands on the leaked firmware, thanks to XDA Forum Member MN-Ming.
Now it looks like the Xperia V is no longer the odd one out, as MN-Ming has also leaked the Android 4.3 firmware for the device. As we have seen with the Xperia TX leak, the firmware build is also 9.2.A.1.131, with its functions and features mostly (if not completely) the same as those found on the 4.3 leaked firmware for the Xperia TX, as well as probably the Xperia T and SP.
As with all the previous leaks, one’s device must have an unlocked bootloader in order to install the leaked firmware. But other than that, there seems to be no other prerequisites to installation. If you’ve been waiting for the Android 4.3 update to come to your Xperia V, you can start by visiting the original thread for more details.
