Angry fix for WiFi disconnecting here (free app)

Things i hate:
- this annoying wifi keepalive issue is still there!!! there is no way to keep wifi active during standby -.- damned why don't they let us users the choice... there IS an option to set the standby behavior but its still completely useless....

- sometimes there are widget issues (doesn't matter if 3rd party or preinstalled) that widgets change into editor mode when just pressing a button like update... changing screen ang going back will fix this temporarily... had this 2 times now...

- auto brigtness issue still not resolved... in low light the screen is MUCH too dark and when changing from full brightess to automatic it keeps full for a while and then goes down to min

- homescreen lag is still too much in portrait

- forced portrait is still not changable (damn i'm righthanded and want to hold it on the ROUND side when portrait is forced!!!!)

- the new ICS launcher... Sonys previous own launcher had a better overview with the sorting possibilities but ok we can have folders now...

- still no thumb keyboard -.-

things i like:
- media from SD card is now directly available and nut just for transfer... finally i have enough memory also without root and mounting stuff ^^

- the new mini-apps are nice but there is still much potential for more apps

- the new version of "Favorites" App is very nice animated and faster

- ICS possibility to deactivate system apps that are not removable... finally i get this google music player away

- a few other ICS related things...


ALL IN ALL this update is a big disappointement... they updated to ICS, integrated one or thwo new features and that's it??? all the big issues are still there since more than six months!!!!!
Just install the WiFi Lock app from the market/play store. It's free. once installed you must change the settings in the app so it will not permanently disable the WiFi once you're out of range. That's it. After that your WiFi will stay connected forever. :)

Yes i already had this. But this is just a useless Workaround! It drains the battery down in less than 30 hours!!! I have to charge it every evening! With other tablets where this works like it should I can use them for 3 days of normal usage! Android gives us the choice so Sony has to activate this option! Nothing else! I

On the Android phones I've used (Legend, Desire, Arc S), the WiFi remained connected, but the phone also went to sleep, battery drain was minimal.
This is the behaviour we were expecting to see in the ICS update, but unfortunately it hasn't been fixed...

Seems ICS moves External SD Card from /mnt/sdcard2 to /sdcard2. Sets permissions as Read-only. Help?!?
Currently on a Moto X that I bought from Republic Wireless, but currently using pure WiFi and Hangouts and Viber

yes and no... it seems that 3rd party apps just have read rights... just the Data transfer application from sony has write rights... thats the next annoying thing because i can just download things only into internal memory and after that i have to move it....

Totally agree with NaKiSm. I can not *believe* they didn't fix those major issues (WiFi and brightness issues especially)! Quite ridiculous.

Also:
- Why no face unlock?
- Don't really like the multitasking thing. Seems mostly useless. I wish I could remove those icons entirely. I don't know why they wasted (probably a LOT) of time on that and not those other major issues NaKiSm mentioned.

Overall I'm kind of underwhelmed. I guess I was hoping for a much better performance increase? Not really sure.

Anyone know if they added MHL support? I meant to test that out. I highly doubt it, but would have been nice. Not sure if that's a hardware thing or not, though.

Um... anyone else experiencing screen flicker?

Tried forcing GPU rendering in settings, and also removing CPU rendering, yet the flickering persists...
