Nice phone for best budget as it is meeting the need of phone in camera
AnonD-94403, 24 Mar 2013What are the bugs that I may face on unlocked bl??Warranty will be void
your device will not be capable to receive any OTA updates
i recommend you not to unlock bootloader of ur phone
if you want to customize ur phone or want to install custom rom , then just root ur phone , install CWM
there are many roms available , that can installed with locked bootloader
i used 8-10 roms on my arc s , and i have locked bootloader , it doesn`t mean that i don`t know how to unlock !
i just don`t want to unlock it !
Launchers , widgets , system UI , lock screen apps can make your phone OS more beautiful :)

I am having a couple of issues with the arc s. Firstly the camera doesn't work anymore,... moreMight be Camera and browser apk are corrupted
these two apk are system apk (Location /system/app)
u can`t delete / replace these apk files
replacing / deleting of system apk required superuser permission (root access)
Alternate solution (more effective)
download flashtool from this link
Install it into C drive ,
delete the old firmware (from this location C:\Flashtool\firmwares) if you found any
download Xperia arc Global firmware from this link
Exract the above downloaded file into C:\Flashtool\firmwares
open flash tool , at the top panel click on flash sign , before lock sign
select flashmode , for next windows just press OK
unplug ur phone from pc if connected
power off ur device
press and hold the back button & attach your phone to ur pc/laptop via datacable
"don`t release back button while attaching ur phone"
color of notification will be green
flashing starts , it will take maximum 2-3minutes !
after flashing remove ur handset,
power on ur phone , first boot will take some time
after booting , turn on your wifi , it will notify you a system upgrade , upgrade it , it will hardly take 2minutes (depends on ur internet connection speed) after up gradation ur phone will restart
Now your arc s is just like new , error and problem free :)
now if you want to upgrade to ICS ,u can upgrade ur phone via Sony Pc Companion !

after rooting install CWM (using xparts) , after all these steps you will be able to install custom roms like Zelly cream a , ice bean etc
these two links are valid links
I am having a couple of issues with the arc s. Firstly the camera doesn't work anymore, all I get now is 'unfortunately camera has stopped'. Why?
Also every time I use google or the browser, after a short period of time it will send me back to google search page or will compleaty close the app and go back to my desktop. Why? It's very annoying.
The phone was brilliant when I first got it back it has taken a drastic slide.
Can someone help or give advice on how to rectify the problems?
