    Re: Upgrade of Sony Xperia play to Android 4.0?

    Recently a press release from Sony had mentioned the new android models which would get a 4.0 android update. Interestingly Xperia play would not be getting the update 4.0. The company is doubtful if the upgrade would give the phone a consistent and stable experience. The Xperia play is very much an android smart phone which provides the user a good gaming experience. Sony would not like to comprise on this by upgrading the phone to Android 4.0. It is there for expected that the company would be releasing a new version of the phone with the 4.0 upgrade incorporated in it which is more suited to play the gaming needs.

    Well...
    Still official ICS 4.0 has not been released by SONY for your Xperia Play...!!
    So you can not update it...!!
    you will find many custom roms are cracked version of ICS for your Xperia on net but don't go for it..!!
    It all have strictly mentioned AT YOUR OWN RISK..
    As it is not an official ICS for your phone you will have to face samo bugs..and can also damage your device too..!!

    Hello Friend,

    Sorry Xperia Play Lovers,you won't be getting Android 4.0 on Xperia play.Android 4.0 is a powerful OS and being highly resource intensive It require more RAM, CPU power, and network bandwidth for applications to work properly and hence leads to severe downfall in the gaming experience of Sony Xperia Play.Since smooth and stable experience with gaming which is the core of this Phone was not possible Sony has decided to withdraw Android 4.0 updates for Xperia Play.

    Hope It Helps!

    Thanks and visit again

    Hello

    Sorry sony didnt bring out the proposed ICS update for xperia play till now. Dont think any update will be coming soon also.

    If you want to root your device you may loose your warranty plus it might damage your device if anything goes wrong as rooting is a tricky process.

    So in my point of view its better if you try managing with gingerbread. and that os is also very good.

    Thank you
