Any help will be met with much kudos.

answer:
Decrypted SEUS firmware. System.sin extracted from .zip and converted to .img using sin2img.

If you go to "downloads" on top of that page, the sourecode for Gingerbread Xperia (Arc AND Play) are there, the one you link is not Arc. Seems all Xperia (new) is compiled from same source.

shouldn't need jtagging, might be able to get an unsecure x10/or arc boot.img to boot enough to pull the info we need, but I don't want to even start messing with that junk yet

was this before or after the source for the arc was released?

they might have just compiled from source.... sadly, the play doesn't have it's source out yet

EDIT:x10/ or arc
