Thanks for the share! I'll have to say, this official ROM considerably smoother and more responsive than any of the custom and leaked ICS ROMs I've tried in the past 2 months.

Is it just me or did Sony remove the notification light for SMS messages?

Whenever I get a SMS, the light no longer blinks. When I go into the SMS settings page, I don't see an option to enable it (could have sworn it was there in 4.0.3).

Anyone else?

LOL! The poster was informing everyone that he was in the process of uploading the update.zip file, which is to be flashed using CWM.

@shantusingh,

I haven't updated to ICS myself so I can't answer that. But if you want flash a kernel, use flashtool or adb.

well ok, that's am img file we would need to install it being in fastboot probably..

it'll be like flash 4.0.4
then flash this img in fast boot (for cwm)
then flash RootExploitOneClick to get root

Edit: didn't worked for me as i have locked bootloader and dont want to unlock it, it would work for unlocked ones

---------- Post added at 10:16 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:13 AM ----------

there's another file http://www.mediafire.com/?o88po27pro13xv5 named bootx.img ... dunno what the difference could be or i guess they are they same

edit: yes they are the same as size is same, just different names!! i guess i got it how to root for now

if you all get root this way, don't forget to

i am updating to 4.0.4 and will update if i get root this way in a bit

no, you need to go back to 4.0.3, root it and than you some how keep the root with hot boot.
