thanks. am i correct in assuming you are now running ICS? has anyone tried the installation from the link about? it is pretty straight forward? it says flash the kernel by typing 'fastboot flash boot boot.img'. this needs to be done in terminal, right?

I'm not an expert when it comes to flashing, but why bother with some "alpha", "pre release" or "any fancy name" release when you will have regular update with full features in three weeks or so?

Im still using stock 4.0.2.A.0.58 with ICS theme (no FC's here)

Flashing the kernel is done with fastboot, your phone MUST be bootloader unlocked to do this.

Personally i'm waiting for a more functional release, or maybe a MIUI ICS rom.

I currently have 4.03 ICS running without issues on my Arc lt15a ... which is now recognized as an lt18i because of the upgrade

I used ARC-ICS-DooMLoRD-Stock-562-ROM-v01.tft sorry I did not save the link.. and search for a tutorial that explains how to use flashtool

I will try to find the links for both

tutorial: http://androidworldfirmware.blogspot.ca/2012/04/update-sony-xperia-arc-s-neo-v-and-ray.html

Good Luck...
