Thanks. I flashed the Arc S ICS firmware on my Arc (Lt15a) and it worked very well in the beggining. But after sometime it got really slow, so I gave up and went back to 2.3.4.
I hope the official firmware for Arc wont have those problems.

Search for SEUS (Sony Ericcson Update Suite) and use that to repair it

The new temple run update fixed ICS incompatibility. I'm not on ICS right now, so can anyone confirm a fix?

Hey all,

Thought I'd throw in my list of errors.

Details:

Xperia arc Lt15i

Original Nordic release for the lt18i
I have removed all of the bloat ware, 3d cam, live wallpapers, email, radio, media, f book, infinite view, all Xperia games,... Etc...

No issues with the flash.

Update positives:
Phone operates much faster on less
Ram.
Themes and ics features are grate.

Bugs so far:

80% of weather apps including original does not update or will freeze on open or add widget.

Notification bar clock gets out of sync only way to fix is restart.

1 in 5 reboot/shutdown will result in lost apn info. Upon searching for service providers it fails repeatedly and apn will not manually save. To fix you must restart.

Screen sliding is a little slow but Turing off Sony hd setting helps this.

Phone,contacts,dialer is super slow, no fix I have found.

WiFi card seems to be repeating every 45-47 packet sent to the router causing my high security settings to drop and reset connection.

Play store uses a whack load of battery life.

Gemini task manager cannot kill all.
Force close of play is needed to close.

Final thoughts:

I am very happy with the results I have gotten from the install of iCs on my arc. There a few issues that have come from this, most of witch have quick fixes and others like games and apps I believe is the apps them self not yet updated for ics. I will most surely update as the proper releases come out.

Sent from my LT15i using XDA

Will this arrive for a 3.0.x ROM via OTA or do I have to update to 4.0.x.x062 or so before?
And also, I have root but locked bootloader, so an .ftf flashed ROM now. Can I just apply the OTA then?

You can not update OTA for ICS. You will need to use SEUS.

Confirmed, actually it's my first time playing it, I never played Temple Run before on Gingerbread, so I don't know if the experience actually the same, but the swiping works correctly, and frame rate is good.

I'm on official ICS 4.0.3 rooted with bloatwares removed and underclocked to 1.2GHz.
