Sony Xperia L gets Android 4.2 update

Sony Xperia L gets Android 4.2 update

Though most users are waiting to get Android 4.3 and even Android 4.4, some devices still run the first version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.1. The Sony Xperia L is one such device and the Japanese company is (finally) doing something about it, rolling out the Android 4.2 update for this low-to-mid end smartphone as we speak.

The new firmware is available both over the air (OTA) and via Sony’s desktop software. It includes platform updates as well as newer versions of Sony’s own software and other app updates. Most notably, users will get a revamped homescreen, easier app tray sorting, new camera functions like Burst mode, as well as slightly redesigned UIs across Sony’s media apps.

If you own the Xperia L and your phone still hasn’t informed you about the new firmware version, hop over to Settings –> About phone and manually check for firmware updates. If that doesn’t work, you can either wait for another couple of days or install Sony’s desktop software and try your luck that way. It’s your call…


    I Have updated My Xperia L to latest 4.2.2 update.
    I am encountering very serious problems since update.
    1. My Xperia Home crashes every now and then, Causing my phone go blank, even power button wont work, I have to remove my battery and put it back to make my phone work.
    2. when ever I turn off and turn it back on, most of the icons I arrange on my home screen (usually icons of apps which I move to internal memory) are deleted
    3. when I plugin my headphones and turn on “music on go” (an option in smart connect) whenever I get message or any push notification, phone will restart.
    4. when I try to move my content to SD card using option Settings>>Storage>>Transfer data to SD card
    a message pops up saying “Unfortunately, settings has stopped” and settings tab opens.

    I was advised by Service Center Guys to wait till next update. I cant Degrade back to stable version.
    I didn’t spend 17000 Rupees for a phone which keeps restarting.
