i am currently running Ice Cream Pureness rom with stock ics kernel....but i tried to play real racing 2 which had very choppy gameplay....i initially thought that maybe the Arc S hardware isnt capable...but i read somewhere that it might be down to what rom & kernel i use. Is this true? If so, then what rom & kernel combination would be the best for full on performance?

I play real racing 2 with arconium 4 with KTG kernel, runs fine, but the game ONLY crash everytime I try to play the H2 NRGEE cup, also sometimes the menu lags

GB is not dead. i find GB more battery friendly and stable for playing HD games and besides there's not much difference ics and gb its only the numbers.

Any good roms for Xperia arc with stock kernel? I can't unlock my bootloader, so I'm bound to use the stock kernel.

From my experience with Pureness V10/11 its always laggy with games.

If you don't care about graphical user interface , definitely JJ hybrid rom is great (fast - compatible with games - has ROM control as well) ,few bugs though like wifi hotspot http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1537717

If you care about having nice user interface with reasonable game performance with lots of free ram available you can try Jelly sandwich http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1836993 or the Remix http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1884958


For the Kernel i always advice to use stock kernel in order to avoid battery drain issues.

Regards
