Hello XDA Community,

Today i'd like to contribute by making, uploading and sharing the latest ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) firmware for Sony Xperia S (LT26i).

This is the official Italian (no brand) (SI: 1257-5499_R4G) ftf of the 6.1.A.2.50 firmware, you can flash it with FlashTool, if you don't know how to do it follow this guide, one of many you can find around the web. Don't worry, the process is quick and simple.

You can use this firmware everywhere (it's not only for the Italian territory) and of course you can choose the language right after you install it (lots of languages included, even many Arabics and Asians one).

If you need to have root permissions on this firmware, it is possible. Just follow one of the guides you can find here on XDA. If you want, i updated my guide on how to root ICS (i wrote the guide for the previous firmware, now that i updated it i show how root this one too). The guide is very simple and noob-proof.


You can download the ftf file here, i provided a fast direct download (no waiting, no queue, no P2P).


Hope i helped, hit thanks if you appreciate, if you have any problem just pm me.

Following there's an italian translation for this post (if it's against the rules, no problems, i'll remove it).

Un saluto alla comunità di XDA,

Oggi contribuisco creando, caricando e condividendo il più recente firmware ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) per Sony Xperia S (LT26i).

Questa è la versione ufficiale Italiana (no brand) (SI: 1257-5499_R4G) del firmware 6.1.A.2.50, potete installarla con FlashTool, per chi non sapesse come fare c'è questa guida, una delle tante che si possono trovare in giro per il web. Non vi preoccupate, il processo è semplice e veloce.

E' possibile utilizzare questo firmware ovunque (non e' destinato solo al territorio italiano), e si puo' ovviamente scegliere la lingua subito dopo l'installazione (ce ne sono molte incluse, anche lingue Asiatiche e Arabiche).

E' possibile ottenere i permessi di root su questo firmware, basta seguire una delle guide che potete trovare su XDA. Se vi interessa, ho aggiornato la mia guida (NB: e' solo in inglese) su come rootare ICS (l'avevo scritta per il firmware precedente, ora che l'ho aggiornata spiego anche come rootare questo). La guida e' semplice e a prova di novizio.


Potete scaricare il file ftf qui, ho provveduto a fornire un link veloce in download diretto (non dovete aspettare, non ci sono code e non è P2P).


Spero di avervi aiutato, premete il tasto THANKS se apprezzate, per ogni problema mandatemi pure un messaggio privato.

what's new in this firmware version?
New baseband and in my experience it feels really faster. Not just an impression, it's something noticeable.

Sorry i don't have much time lately. If maybe someone can do it i will add the link in the opening post or i'll do it when i'm free but don't count too much on that. Why can't you flash the ftf with flashtool?

Installed this and on first run (phone works fine it seems) a message appears saying:
Error: Error processing purchase.[DF-BPA-10]

WTH is that? I've never received an error like that after updating firmware. Also, extracted file size is much smaller than previous ftf files. This is very odd.

As far as I know thats a play store error go to settings > applications > all tab > select play store wait and then clear data and reboot the device. The issue should be fixed ....

Oh ok, thanks.

Seems camera focusses faster now, but video focus is still slow as ever.

Edit: Just cleared data for camera under the apps section and reselected all the camera options - not sure if it's just in my head but video camera focus seems faster now also. Will be testing over the next few days. Lets hope the focussing issues under low light are gone.

There is a difference in size between the two versions for Italy and Russian market.version of the Russian market for circulation on the network only 393 MB with Italy is 663 MB.

That happens when Dalvik Cache is cleared afaik. But from what i see around, there may be many possible reasons causing your problem (do you have Titanium Backup?). I can't really help you here as i'm not getting that message every time i turn on the device, try to look it up on Google or here on XDA, i'm quite sure you'll find the solution pretty soon.

what are changes in new rom ?

Please read the other posts before asking. Sony doesn't release an official changelog as far as i know, so my answer is still this.

And i can confirm that this firmware is quite faster than the previous one in tasks like closing or opening apps, browsing through menus and text messages and so on, at least for me.

    How I can add arabic and hebrew language to this frimware??

    Sent from my LT26i using xda premium

    If you need the Arabic keyboard, i really advise you to get Swift Key. It is an amazing keyboard, and you can download the Arabic language pack for it free of additional costs. You can also try Swift Key for free.

    Otherwise, if you prefer a free Arabic keyboard, Ibrahim Arabic Keyboard seems pretty good and it's totally free.
