1. Download FTF needed http://www.mediafire.com/?o4v5ttaqsjhv3aq
2. Download Flashtool http://www.4shared.com/file/Ot3fyDJf...0-windows.html
3.install flashtool , install the drivers inside the flashtool
4. put the FTF you downloaded in the firmware folder where the flashtool is installed
5. Enable usb debuggin and switch off your phone
6.click on the FLASH icon on flashtool window,choose flashmode
7. if you want to keep your apps and data, uncheck wipe cache and data,its better if you check it but you will lose your data
8.follow the onscreen instructions , it will tell you when and how to connect your phone
9. you will get error at 99%, but your phone will start in ICS...
10. Enjoy

Uncheck wipe data is enough to preservere data. Wipe cache should be rather enabled.

In my case
I flashed, didn't boot, tried many times, but still didn't boot
So i flashed night elf kernel through fastboot, entered recovery wiped everything
Then it booted normally!
Hope it helped

Hi all, i was on stock 4.0.2.A.0.62, flashed just as said in first post, unchecked wipe data and everything is just awsome, works like a charm for now.
I can't thank you enough for your instructions guys!

Just 2 questions:
1. How to take screenshot on ICS
2. There is no Sony Contact widget?

TNX a lot!
