Default Official ICS Rollout thread - Updated 27/6/2012 - All firmwares available!

Hello everyone. We’d like to bring you up to speed with recent developments in our Android 4.0 software rollout.

First up, the rollout plans for the Xperia NXT series (Xperia S, Xperia P and Xperia U) are progressing as planned. The first smartphone to be upgraded will be Xperia S, starting from the end of June. Then Xperia P will follow, whilst Xperia U will receive it a little later in Q3. As always we will keep you in the loop with the latest info as soon as we can.

For our 2011 range, as you know, we began our Ice Cream Sandwich software upgrade with Xperia arc S, Xperia ray and Xperia neo V last month.
Now, we are happy to confirm that the remaining 2011 smartphones; Xperia arc, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman will start to receive their updates starting from next week.

This software upgrade will be Android version 4.0.4 and the good news is that this latest version will also be made available for Xperia arc S, Xperia ray and Xperia neo V users, who received Android 4.0.3 the first time around.

In regards to Xperia PLAY, after extensive in house testing with our developer teams and working with our partners, we have concluded that a consistent and stable experience, particularly with gaming, cannot be guaranteed for this smartphone on Ice Cream Sandwich – therefore, we will not make the Android 4.0 upgrade available for Xperia PLAY.

This decision was also verified when we received similar feedback from the developer community; both experienced developers and advanced users, along with game content providers following our ICS beta ROM for unlocked Xperia PLAY smartphones.

Our priority has and always will be, to provide the best possible user experience on Xperia smartphones. In this instance the ICS upgrade would have compromised stability, where we look to ensure a quality gaming experience with games optimized and developed for Xperia PLAY.

As always, feel free to drop us a comment or question below.

There is not said, that update is released to all devices to all regions during this week. The whole update project to named devices begins this week and lasts until they have done everything for devices receiving the update.

The whole team is in progress of uploading thousands of firmwares and now they also occured server problems probably due to massive uploading and downloading. It all takes long time.

And yes, they said end May/early June. It begon end May. They started like they said, what's the problem?

Now please, calm down, be a bit patient and stop spamming the topic. I know you are all excited and so impatient, but please, that's not a reason to spam. Go outside, have some fun, it is pointless to wait hours behind computer, waiting for the update, finally going to sleep without it. You can't miss the update, it will be available for long time.

When a update comes, then it will be announced/posted, I will update this topic when I see something new, on Sony forums the SI lists are updated when new firmwares are available etc.
UPDATE 05/06/2012

I am without laptop for few days, I come back, forum is spammed with the whole ICS update. Seriously - spammed.
So many new topics about ICS, everyone posting that they got ICS update.

Yea, I know, most of you are so excited, but don't go spamming everywhere.

WT19, Live with Walkman, and SK17, Mini Pro, type phones are now receiving the update.

UPDATE 13/06/2012

Topic updated with a few stuff.
Live with Walkman, Xperia Mini Pro and Xperia Mini receiving the update from 2011 MDPI selection, Active users need to wait and "be active"

FTF FILE LIST - 4.1.B.0.431 firmware!
Files are in .7z format in order to make it as small as possible. Use 7-zip file manager to extract the .ftf file.

There was a screenshot of an Pro with a 4.0.4 firmware running 3.0.8 kernel leaked somewhere in XDA. Can't point it out now cuz I'm on phone and searching Just sucks. Make a little search, I'm sure someone will find it.

yep, after following the link given in the post below, the build.prop posted does say msm7x30 somewhere
which seems to be the code or something related to the 3.0.8 kernel.. (i hope)
edit:
NO, mine says msm7x30 too, thats not it, anyway cannot confirm in any way
