So I'm now running ICS..

For anyone having trouble installing, dump PC Companion because it's shockingly bad. Instead, follow the advice in this thread:

http://talk.sonymobile.com/thread/37644

Using SUS worked first time for me (unlike PC Companion which failed on two computers, multiple Java installs and attempts in Windows Safe Mode).

Interesting, I would love to but would need a dummys guide on how to do this, I cannot root as I haven't gotta clue where to start.
At best I'm good with using sus and pcc :)

hang about, are you saying that if i use the standard sony update service to re flash my phone, the new ics firmware will already be in the update service once i flash or repair it? or would that be too simple?

Nah its not that simple as seus or pcc will recognise your device by the region, meaning if their is no ics available for your region then it wont update to ics, I tried that way also thats how I found out, i'll make you a guide for flashing firmware with flashtool tomorrow if you wish, or you can have a little hunt on here and see if any of the guides on here help, look for the "namaste all in one guide" its good.
I would link it but xda app is bein a pain with copy n paste right now
