If you have rooted your phone do these updates still get pushed?

or if you update does it break root on your phone?

I got it too. The beggist change is Material you design. They redesign walpaper picker and they add manual color pallet from walpaper colors and themed icons.
I like Press to unlock with fingerprint option. No more accidental fingeprint unlock try in packet.

The SEA version got android 13 today, i just cross flash from HK version to it and all seem fine
what program did you use to flash the SEA version? I messed around around with Flashtool and needed to make FTF file, but the info to make FTF file is clear as mud, I was rooted and wiped my device and relock the bootloader and was hoping to get Android 13 on it.

You dont need to unlock bootloader for flashing official firmware. I just download Xperiafirm here to get the firmware then flash through new flasher. Dont use official Flashtool

    Well, this is a real non-event. Never understand why some people get so excited about OS updates, I rarely notice any difference. Android 13 is a major meh for me... I wish they'd got rid of that utterly hideous drop down menu but it's still there...not much of note anywhere else either. Most of the changes/improvements must be behind the scenes....he said hopefully.
