Hello friends,


so finally we have a version which works almost perfect!

i present to you leaked Sony JellyBean Firmware 6.2.B.0.197 for the Xperia S (LT26i)... this will also work on the Xperia SL (LT26ii)...


this firmware was ment for developer (brown) devices but i was able to get it to boot on production devices...




[ NOTICE ]

since this is an internal testing firmware, do not expect to see the same features on the official final release... some things could be added while others removed...

[ WARNING ]

PLEASE DO NOT CROSSFLASH THIS ROM+KERNEL... this is ment only for LT26i/LT26ii (Xperia S/SL)... please do not flash it on LT26w/LT28/etc....





  1. THIS IS AN LEAKED ROM

  2. FEW THINGS ARE EXPECTED NOT TO WORK

  3. THIS IS POSTED JUST SO THAT USERS CAN ENJOY THE UPCOMING FEATURES AND OTHER DEVS CAN HELP IN FIXING THE ISSUES

  4. MORE THINGS WILL FOLLOW AS AND WHEN I/OTHERS CAN GET THEM TO WORK

  5. DO NOT ASK FOR FURTHER UPDATES/ETA OF OFFICIAL RELEASE

  6. ALL USER DATA (from /data partition) WILL BE WIPED WHILE INSTALLING THIS




please backup all data, including SDCARD data before flashing this ROM



[ why has this been posted? ]

many devs can use the libs to improve existing/work-in-progress ROMs...

many themers can start porting to ROMs/devices...

many users will get a feel of whats in store for the JB update...



[ features ]

  1. Easy to flash update.zip via recovery
  2. Prerooted and busybox installed
  3. working CWM recovery is included in kernel
    [ To enter recovery keep pressing VOLUME UP button AFTER u see the "PINK" LED at bootup (Sony logo) ]



[ whats not working? ]


you tell me!


please report other things as and when you find them



[ requirements ]

  • unlocked bootloader
  • previously on stock .55 ICS ROM or roms based on that [since some components of THIS rom contain files from those firmwares]
  • supplied ROM
  • any existing kernel with recovery or just extract the boot.img (contains inbuilt recovery) from the ROM i have uploaded and flash it using fastboot



[ how to install ]

  1. download the ROM and save it on SDCARD
  2. reboot device into recovery (make sure that the /system partition is unmounted, i have noticed that in some kernels the /system partition remains mounted)
  3. flash the ROMs update.zip (this will take some time)
  4. thats it now reboot device
  5. at first boot device will reboot once after bootanimation thats expected
  6. next boot will take a long time!!!
  7. it might happen that in after some reboots u get a "flashing firmware screen" thats ok.. let it complete... DO NOT DISTURB WHILE THAT PROCESS IS GOING ON!!!
  8. after a few reboots the ROM should stabilize!
  9. enjoy!


If you are getting Status 7 Error while flashing in recovery just extract the boot.img (contains inbuilt recovery) from the ROM i have uploaded and flash it using fastboot then enter ROM and flash it through recovery

thanks! but first atleast enjoy the ROM...



Here are some quick benchmark runs on the stock kernel of this ROM:
Quadrant: 3527
AnTuTu: 8947




BTW guys this internal testing ROM seem to be in final stages... it was built on April 25, 2013 (just 2 days back :D ).... so i am pretty sure that the official release of JB is very close...

till then... enjoy this!

After flashing this, will the root remain? or will it be unrooted?

It is given in the description pre-rooted , read carefully

Is it okay if I flash the XZX?

Flash from anywhere i guess, as it' a zip file and to be flashed with recovery !!!

Edit : yeah you can as xzx is based .55.... Requirement : unlocked bootloader.
