Anonymous, 17 Aug 2012hey guys .. did anyone updated the phone to android 4.1.B.0.587 via the sony ericsson pc Compa... moreHi pal, I've seen it too, I tried to update my phone but there was a trouble with downloading !
I'll give u the latest information s I get!
Goren.GM, 17 Aug 2012Just in case you didn't know, Sony has released a new "updated" version of ICS (4.1.... moreThe big problem with Sony ICS updates is that they are keeping the old 2.6.32 linux kernel, so it doesn't matter how new the version they say it is, their kernel is OUDATED. The 4.1.B.0.587 update that you mentioned is still an ICS 4.0.4 with some tweaks (but still full of BLOATWARE) and an old 18.104.22.168 kernel, that's why there's no reason to expect a radical increase in the OS performance. To prove what I say, take a look at CM 7(Gingerbread) which uses a superior 2.6.35 kernel and CM 9(ICS) which uses a 3.x kernel. In short, stick to GB 2.3.4 or take a shot and try CM. I bet for the second one.
Just in case you didn't know, Sony has released a new "updated" version of ICS (4.1.B.0.587) for some 2011 models. It corrects (supposedly) some audio playback and video recording problems present in the previous ICS 4.0.4. I have installed it but I don't see any significant improvement whatsoever... laggish performance remains and battery consumption seem to have increased. Veredict: Stay away from the official ICS for Xperia 2011 phones and stick to GB 2.3.4 or better, try CM7.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2012i hate this phone! reset automatic every minuets! dont buy this :(your phone got some problem doesn't necessarily mean that every Arc S got the same problem. Try a factory reset first, if it doesn't work then it's time to claim warranty.
