By on February 19th, 2013

An Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean based firmware has leaked for the Xperia S, thanks to XDA recognized developer – DooMLoRD. The leaked firmware gives a sneak peek into what all new features and changes the official Android 4.1.2 update will be bringing to the handset.

Xperia S users who have already flashed the ROM on their handset report that the update brings about a noticeable improvement in the performance and smoothness of the handset. Sony has also updated nearly all the pre-installed apps including their suite of media applications to the latest version as seen on the Xperia T. Other new features include Google Now, small apps as seen on the Xperia Z, enhanced Camera app, extended Standby mode, and new themes.

One of the key changes that the JellyBean update will bring is a new 3.4.x based linux kernel for the Xperia S. This should bring about some considerable improvement in performance, stability and battery life.

The leaked firmware is still in alpha stages and crashes often, along with some screen flickering issues. If you are planning to flash the leaked Jelly Bean firmware on your Xperia S, keep in mind that you won’t be able to make calls as the functionality is not present in the firmware.

The official update for the Xperia S is still a couple of months away. The leaked firmware does make the wait exciting and worth it since Sony will be adding tons of new features with the update.
