Hi guys, any idea when is Gingerbread 2.3.3 available for download into SE ARC?
about 2 weeks ago!
I bought a new Arc yesterday and after reading this post, I checked my Android version. It said 2.3.2. I hit the update key, it went out and checked, and came back and said I have the latest.
Did you use the update on the phone?
I used the PC Companion to update mine. (may not be out in your country?)
Also you can use flashtool to flash a ROM from XDA.
Mine says there is an update to 2.3.3 (phone bought in Germany).
Can I have some feedback about the new version? What are the changes/benefits except Facebook integration?
Battery battery life and better touchscreen are the things i've noticed.
Downside is unless you have an unlocked bootloader you can't root (yet)
You can now

Anyone been able to update on Orange, UK? Having same issue with Latest Software displayed when updating via phone or PC Companion. 2.3.2 currently on phone.
If you have a branded version from orange then you'll probably have to wait for them to add their logos and whatnot to the new version of the firmware.
Yes I noticed about battery life. Official changelog:
General software stability
HD Video recording performance (Xperia arc)
And a Facebook integration - not of any use for me though.
I noticed pretty handy thing - when you receive a message or you have a missed call it will show up on lock screen.
