Android 4.3 updates for the Sony Xperia Z (C6603) and Xperia ZL (C6503) are now ready for download, courtesy of XDA’s member Androxyde. The firmware build 10.4.B.0.569 is now available to anyone who want to cram it to his/her Sony smartphone before the Japanese company officially starts rolling it.
Again, this isn’t something everyone should be doing — in fact, I would wait for the over-the-air update — but if you do decide to take this route, you should know that IntoMobile can’t be held accountable if something goes wrong and you end-up with a bricked device. Just had to add that there. 😉
Anyway, as far as I’ve understood, the official rollout should begin any day now, and the chances are it will initially target unlocked Xperia smartphones with carrier-specific version likely to follow in early 2014.
UPDATE: The new software is now rolling over the air!
