i think thats the easiest way to root is that if you have rooted 562 then do the OTA (over the air) then you will keep root also

First of all thanks a lot to Overlo4d for this trick. Now I have edited my post a little bit just to share how i did the root.

Please remember I have an Lt18i [ARC S]


* I flashed the 4.0.4 [0.431] firmware from here. = http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1583010
* I flashed the kernel of 4.0.3 [0.562] firmware. AND Kernel Sources :- http://www.mediafire.com/?u4yyu9066gloxxu
* Then I rooted using the following script by DoomLord. AND Root Source:- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1601038
*Then I flash back the kernel of 4.0.4 [0.431] firmware. AND Kernel Sources:- http://www.mediafire.com/?qx8gi3imbgqlxh5

I have a locked bootloader and am new to android.
I've just upgraded from 2.3.4 to 4.0.4 via sony update service.
Please tell me how to root my device (Xperia Arc) using the file in the post.

Worked for me. I had a lot of errors after flashing the old kernel btw. But after rooting with the one click program I flashed back the new kernal.sin and loader.sin and now I don't get any errors anymore. I removed all bloatware and ads using root ^^
