I am new here in this forum but i was also facing problem with root accedently i update my arc from 0.42 to 0.62 and i lost my root. Now yesterday rooted my arc and my phone once again awsome.....I want to share how i did it and this happened with the help of comments in this forum and moders and developer who develop the mods for arc. Its not my work just share.

(1) MAke backup of your market appliction with titanium backup.
(2) Download 4.0.2.A.0.42 from ( jlmcr87 posted the link )
(3) Flash this firmware with any version of flastool i did this with 0.2.9 & 0.6.8
(4) After flashing the firmware root xperia arc with the methood of ( zergRUSH any version ) i root with the ( zergRUSH version 1 & 3).
(5) After that immediately connect your phone with wireless network and check for update. Its display that new version is availabe 4.0.2.A.0.62. Click to update
After update click to install. IT will take time and your phone start several time dont worry about it. After completing update first boot take time.
(6) To Check root install CWM autoinstaller or Titanium backup. Have fun

Unhappy
Happy to hear it works for you. It doesn't work for me. When I try to update via OTA, the phone starts updating, does a few reboots and when you think it is done it shows a message "Could not install new software version. Try again"
