Default Tablet Z ROMS Or Updates?

Hi Guys

I own a Xperia Tablet Z and I live in South Africa, why I state where I live is because I'm assuming updates take forever to get here

4.3 was released for Xperia devices in December, and its now 7 January and I haven't received the 4.3 update, now I don't know if I should wait and hope to get it or just load the custom ROM?

Cause if I'm waiting for 4.3, how long will it take for 4.4 to get here

Wait for updates? Or just load custom ROM

Custom Roms are the best, cause I can always change, but I also like having the original state that Sony does there UI

Hi, how are you checking for the update? I ask because for now there is no OTA update. You can only update by PC Companion or the Sony Update Service.

I also like to keep my tablet looking stock but I like to get rid of bloat ware and Sony apps I don't use. Because of the lack of development and custom roms for this device I decided to update by PC Companion and then disable the apps I don't want in settings - apps. That way I have stock without the bloatware.

You can also download a ftf and Flash it via Flashtools. Stock ROM, but manual install...
