Good news Xperia S owners as it seems the test builds for ICS are well under way and moving forward. Over on at XDA-Developers Forum the very well known developer DooMLoRD has posted a screenshot from a friend that has past this on to bring some revelations to light.
It is believed to be what Sony are testing and DooMLoRD has said that the “build looks polished but there are still some bugs which the devs are sorting out”. As you will see in the image below, the Xperia S is running Android 4.0.3 and with the build number 6.1.A.0.226, but more importantly it is running a 3.0 Linux kernel and that’s compared to the old 2.6 current kernel. Obviously new features, implementations and more comes as the benefit of this and brings Sony Mobile up to date. But also for kernel developers this is fantastic news to hear that they have the 3.0 Kernel to work with.
Let’s hope as many Xperia Smartphones now get the new 3.0 Kernel update as well with ICS coming through as soon as possible.
