Im from Argentine, last night with sony pc companion, I could upgrade to android ics.
I think it works a bit slower with Ics system, but there is no turning back once installed, only flashing the phone, but do not want to lose the warranty.

I've tried installing the semc home apk update that I used on gb to get rid of 4corners but, everytime I switch phone off it just goes back to 4corners on ics. Is there anyway to fix this without root? I appreciate your help Jean unlike the various trolls we get.
Jean.androidfan, 07 Mar 2013Good :), and carriers most of times have different build numbersIm not getting good battery life like last time. Ive had problems since I used WiFi hotspot. I did a hard reset before update. Do I need to do that again or does battery need recalibrating?
Seriously Sony... when will be the new firmware update released? I'm from the Philippines and I'm starting to lose hope with this issue!
dev v, 07 Mar 2013is it a worldwide update of ICS or a only updqte for a country or carrier?Just a carrier update. Like ive said previously im on 3network uk and while on gb everyone else got .58/.62 we got 4.0.2.C.0.5. 4.1.L.0.10 is our alternative to .13 that we are all waiting for. Like I said, my last xperience of ics was horrid but through pc companion im much happier.
helo james. happy to see that you received a new firmware update for lww. Is this update solve led notification bug and network mode reset problem? Is it fix wifi stability issue?
please share your experience about this update.
Just updated to 4.1.L.0.8 using pc companion. Games running smooth and minimal lag. Updated using sus last time and got horrible lag.
http://d-h.st/wZl : here there is an add on for zellycream without the hot update, cpu settings control, after you flash again zellycream ( rapaheel), flash it by CWM without wiping anything, then go to settings, you will see cpu controls, tap it set the max 1.024 ghz and the min 768 mhz , the governor set it performance and finally apply on boot, do not touch I/O with it
