As promised by Sony last week and since a year , they started rolling out Android Ice-cream sandwich to 3 models of Xperia , Sola,U and Go.
Since the news of a possible update rolling out this week came , I was looking virtually every hour on my phone update service , but no new updates were noted till today morning. So by noon I started looking at some forums and found it has arrived to phones in my region ( India). Then I went to the Sony mobile site to look up for updates , and got what I wanted " An update is available for your device". I have not installed Sony PC companion software so I was asked to install that first, on plugging my sola to my computer.
Then I started the update process , which also prompted me for a backup , since I did that earlier it went quickly.
Then you will be asked to unplug Sola from computer and switch it off , then plug in the cable pressing the volume down button , which will prompt transfer of downloaded update to the phone.
After updating , it will prompt you to unplug the cable and switch on the phone . The initial boot up will take more time than usual. No need to panic.
Now switch on your phone .
