Sony Unveils Xperia Play ICS Beta For Unlocked Phones

Posted on Mar 30 2012 - 9:22am by Editorial Staff

As promised Sony Xperia Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade rollout is quickly running out of March and into April for all models, the company has just unveiled a new beta version of the upgrade for Xperia Play owners. Sony has pushed this version for the Play to find out which games may need some work to be compatible with Android 4.0 following the alpha release in December and a beta update in February for the Arc S, Neo V and Ray.

There are a few things to pay close attention to before you download and install the beta ROM even if you’re an advanced developer:

  • You should be an advanced developer with extensive knowledge in how to install, and switch between different ROMs. If you are a consumer without these developer skills, then we strongly recommend you do not try this, as you may damage your phone.
  • You must be using Xperia PLAY, running the latest Xperia software release (which is 4.0.2.A.0.42). For an ICS beta ROM for Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo V and Xperia ray, check out the previously released ICS beta ROM for unlocked Xperia smartphones.
  • You must unlock your phone using our Unlock boot loader service, and agree to all the legal and warranty conditions that apply. Please note that you may void the warranty of your phone, any warranty from your operator or both if you unlock the boot loader of your phone. Sony Mobile can then no longer guarantee the full functionality of your phone, and will not be responsible for any unusable functions or loss of personal data associated to the beta ROM being flashed to the phone.
