This procedure works on 4.0.3 on Arc S, Neo V and Ray. It also works on Unlocked and Locked Bootloader.

Requirements:

1.install adb driver (or reinstall it from adb sdk)
2. needs USB Debugging on
(optional) activate Mass Storage Mode (MSC), some users reported trouble using MTP mode
3. connect the usb cable to the phone ->run .bat file from zip
4.press any key
5.the phone will turn off, wait to switch on again (see the lockscreen)
6.press any key again
7.the phone will reboot again(same as 6th step)
8.press any key ...again
9. same as 6th step
10.press any key, the bat closes...and there you are...working superuser, need to install busybox from market

i've found the root file on arc development section, i don't remember in wich one :)

also, CWM from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1346190 is compatible

Hit Thanks button if it works for you :)

Found the way to change to MSC:

with phone disconnected from USB... go to Settings - xperia - connectivity - usb connection mode - change to MSC. Accept. Done.

hy, anyone can tell me how uninstall my CWM recovery to do the upgrade..? thanks :) (ihave locked bootloader)

you don 't need to uninstall CWM to upgrade to ICS 4.0.3, i just flashed the ftf file, and i was coming directly from baseband .42. to be sure, you can install Generic Nordic firmware with Wotan(baseband .62) and then update to 4.0.3 via PC Companion.
