The Update Centre keeps telling me to update to 12.1.A.1.205 (which I've already installed, as seen in the screenshot). All I can do is to clear data in Settings whenever it appears again. I tried to update but it cannot be installed (with/without CWM). What can I do to get rid of it forever?

But the Root App Remover says that it is a key module and removing it will cause system crash/unstable or something like that.

PS thanks for fast reply!

Simply scanning for new updates in update center doesn't help?

If that doesn't help you could try repairing your phone using SUS

SUS doesn't support Xperia SP.

You can freeze it using Titanium Backup Pro or ROM Toolbox Lite.

It does: -)

Actually, I had the same problem as you. After updating to 12.1.A.1.205 using SUS the update manager kept offering to 12.1.A.1.205. The first time that happened, I accepted but installation failed and it kept offering the update. Just like in your case. When I did a scan for new updates in update manager the problem disappeared. But YMMV of course.
