The difference is:
LT15 xperia arc
LT18 xperia arc S

Yes LT18 firmware also works on LT15
I think the better is the one designed for your model

Any difference from the Generic Germany one that makes flashing this one worth, there isn't one, is it?

Thanks for your sharing!! Finally have someone release a generic world .42 firmware with a root method beside having to downgrade to 2.3.3. I flashed it last night and the batter life seem much better than the generic HK 368 firmware I used. May be my lt15a just don't like the HK firmware and baseband because I had poor battery life for that firmware but it was not happened to 2.3.3 generic world I used before the update. Now the the battery life go back to the excellent condition it was when I used generic world firmware for 2.3.3. I am not sure if it is just my phone or it is the generic hk rom.

    What i did to root successfully

    I have free lt15i, no operator carrier, before all this, i've got, GB 62, rooted and unlocked bootloader, and this is what i did to have LT15i 4.1.B.0.431 Generic Global World rooted:

    1.- I downloaded from the first post in this tread the global worl tft, thaks to tge uploader paisanooooo!! :)
    2.- Flashed it with Flashtool 0.8.5.0, you know...put the tft on the flashtools firmwares folder, open flashtool, click the ray, select flashmode, and select the tft, i think that you have to uncheck the wipe data checkbox to don loose your datas :eek:
    3.- Flashtools will ask for your cell an explain how to connect it, you know, power off, hold pressing back key connect usb cable, wait to process to end, then unplug usb cable and power on the cell, wait..... wait..... wait.... and you will see your wonderfull arc with ICS 431.

    TO ROOT

    1.- I downloaded from this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1680793 the file on the arc line. THANKS TO THE DEVELOPERS AND THE UPLOADERS.

    2.- Downloaded too from this tread on the first post this:
    NEW!ROOT THE NEW 4.1.B.0.431 FIRMWARE (For unlocked bootloaders): http://www.mediafire.com/?7rao5retiww18x9

    Thanks another time, y todas las que hagan falta, for jlmcr87 ;)

    Extract the content on the zip file to your pc's hard disk, yo will see a folder that has two folders, you need the content of the "Root for ICS" folder, inside you'll see three files, copy the file named "RootXperia.zip" on your's cell sd card, at root.

    3.- I guess that you have FASTBOOT, "NOT bootloader" aplication, if not you have to search beacouse i dont remenber from where i downloaded :eek:
    Here is the link to FASTBOOT, extract the content inside the zip to the root of your cumputers hard disk, this zip has the img file that you have to flash, renamed with a shortly name for easy typing. :p:p:p http://www.mediafire.com/?b903ml8nn8wnao6

    4.- Put the file downloaded fron de 2 point on the FASTBOOT "NOT bootloader" folder.

    5.- Open cmd window in windows, go to the FASTBOOT folder

    6.- Write fastboot flash boot XXXXX.img, where XXXXXis the name of the file you pasted on the 4 point.

    7.- You'll see a < waiting for device> message,

    8.- Power off the cell, hold pressed menu key, connect usb cable, and wait pressing the menu key untill process finish

    9.- Now be careful, power on the cell, and when you see that SONY logo appears, next two seconds you'll see that blue led goes on, is now that you have to press the vulome down key, and waiti for the CWM Recovery menu appears, if you did not have time to press volume down key, don't worry, power off, power on and try again ;)

    10.- Volume keys for go up and down in the CWM menu, and the home key to select option from menu.

    11.- go to "Install zip from sdcard"

    12.- select "choose zip from sdcard"

    13.- Search for the file "RootXperia.zip" and select it.

    14.- At the warning message............tatachan!!!! at your own risk select it, and wait for the process finish.

    15.- Go back on the menus using the back key, and select the " reboot system now" option.

    So is how i rooted mi Lt15i on ICS 431, successfully:D:D:D

    Good Luck.

    FOR ARC & ARC S WITH UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER ONLY !

    Works with all firmware, I assume your are familiar with command prompt and adb
    (If you are on stock 4.0.4 like me for this tutorial you don't need to flash the 4.0.3 kernel like the others method)

    Download this package
    Copy RootXperia.zip on your sdcard
    Turn off Your phone
    Unplug your usb cable
    Put your phone in recovery mode (black screen with blue led)
    Open a command prompt
    Enter recovery by command: fastboot boot recoveryARC.img
    Wait sec the phone enter in the CWM recovery
    Select install zip from sdcard then choose zip from sdcard
    Select RootXperia.zip
    Reboot via CWM recovery or by command: fastboot reboot
    that's it !
    Don't forget to thanks Bin4ry for the recovery & the RootXperia.zip​
