    I see it’s Italian, can the language be changed to English and also, is it from Sony or custom made??

    • Usama Mujtaba

      @fazullahkharoti:disqus you can change the language on startup. Those images are collected from other source actually. Just flash the firmware and chose your desired language 🙂 Good Luck

  • SeRepatinga

    Is it mandatory that my Xperia T is running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean?

    • Usama Mujtaba

      @serepatinga:disqus no it’s not. You can even flash if you’re running 4.1.2.

        • Usama Mujtaba

          @kuberhrithick:disqus there is no Android 4.2.3, it’s either Android 4.2.2 or 4.3 Jelly Bean. if it’s 4.2.2, yes you can definitely update it now using this guide.

      @serepatinga:disqus You are having connection issues. Please don’t leave the volume down key as the flashing starts. Re-read the guide once again and you will get it working. Good Luck.

      • Richard

      @adamzimniak:disqus I will make a guide on that soon. Please hold on.

  • Abdullhai

    is it necessary to keep the volume down pressed?

    • Usama Mujtaba

      @abdullhai:disqus you may see errors if you release the key once flashing is started. So, keep it pressed to avoid any issues.
