    After releasing firmware updates for some recently and not so recently launched Xperia smartphones, Sony is reportedly rolling out the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update for the Xperia Tablet Z's Wi-Fi variant.Xperiaguide claims that the company has officially rolled out the Android 4.2.2 10.3.1.C.0.136 firmware update for the Wi-Fi only variant of the Xperia Tablet Z SGP311 and SGP312.
    The site notes that Android 4.2.2 10.3.1.C.0.136 firmware update for the tablet is a major update, compared to the previous ones and is a 786MB download. The site also notes that users in UK and France have confirmed receiving the new update on their Xperia Tablet Z device. It is available via the PC Companion desktop tool.

    Wonder if I need to update the PC Companion first. Would hate to lose all the data on the tablet when new software is installed.

    1. Download and install the Sony PC Companion from the Sony Web site to your computer.
    2. Launch the Sony PC Companion you have installed on your computer.
    3. Connect the Sony Tablet using a USB cable to your computer.
    4. Allow the program to install drivers necessary for your device.
    5. A notification should prompt you of an update, if available. Make sure that the computer is connected to a direct Internet connection or via Wi-Fi.
    6. Follow the instructions provided to by the Sony PC Companion to begin downloading and updating your device.
    7. Be reminded that the firmware update may or may not erase all data on your Tablet. If the Sony PC Companion asks you to create a backup, please do so.

    I installed the new OS a few days ago and now the battery will not charge above 97%. What is up with that?

    I have several devices that do that including my laptop. I assume it's to prevent damaging the battery by over charging it.

    Sony said today that it will be upgrading the Xperia Z to Android 4.4. No details related to timing were given for the update, but hey, at least anyone rocking Sony’s recent flagship tablet now knows that they’ll eventually be able to break into some KitKat and enjoy all of the goodness that’s packed inside.
