Default [System] Rooted R800i 3.0.1.A.0.145 [UK]

Unlocked bootloader required.

First, you need to unlock the bootloader referred to [TUTORIAL] Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc bootloader unlocking by lollylost100.

Then, download the system image you needed:

PS: It's highly recommand to flash the unrooted .145 UK tft ([ROM] R800i_3.0.1.A.0.145 - Generic UK Firmware by thomassafca) via flashtool and flash this rooted images becuase the Baseband version was updated.

Downlaod the Android SDK (android-sdk_r11-windows.zip) via http://developer.android.com/sdk/
Extract android-sdk_r11-windows.zip to C:\
