AS I understand, the '4.1.B.0.587' version is the stable and best one yet.
Update your mobile with this version of ICS. And DO NOT cancel/disturb the update process. It may take long time depending on your internet connection, but its better to wait than getting your mobile land into troubles by disturbing the update process. If you don't have patience to wait for update completion, leave it to update over night while you are asleep. By morning, it should be done.

Can I get benefit if HDMI after rooted phone with official GB or ICS ,
if. Yes then tells me the process of rooted the phone
And sends the link of OFFICIAL GB AND ICS ROM.
Well.... all roms based on original Sony firmware (Like Codename, X-Gamer etc) are best for good battery backup. Those roms don't need bootloader unlocked (so whichever rom doesn't ask for a unlocked bootloader is good for battery backup) .... Bad battery (or rarely good) is a result of custom Kernels....

A big problem is HD video recording is Not working properly. It lags. Also, some HD files playing 480P ,720P lags. However, still phone quality is increased is ICS.
Phone dialpad delay issue is resolved now, so No problem
Go launcher is not running smoothly. Some apps always force close
Another big thing is ICS menu-style/look is Not good as GB.
WAIT FOR Jelly Bean.

WEBHEAD, 16 Nov 2012Thanks. Can you quickly tell me what 'gaaps' mean? I read, its Google Apps. Why do we need this?@WEBHEAD,
Google Apps, 1. well once you flash the kernel present in the zip file using fastboot.
2. Enter CW Recovery mode, Clear factory data settings (If flashing new ROM for first time) or, (if from previous version of new ROM, ignore this step.)
3. Then you flash the custom ROM via CWRecovery.
4. Next, you have to flash Google Apps.
5. Then Clear Cache,
6. Clear Dalvik cache.
7. Reboot and enjoy the new ROM.
Google Apps have the extra goodies and applications related to the particular ICS or JB ROM. Telling from a user's viewpoint, if you don't flash Google Apps, you cannot use YouTube, Google Play, Gmail and all Google related stuff after u install the JB or ICS for the first time. As simple as that...
Advanced users, pls correct me if I'm wrong.

Good to hear that you gonna get a new Xperia Sola for a less price. I guess it's for 13.5k from ebay. Yes, a good choice. Even two of my friends bought Neo V @13k from ebay 4 months ago. The products are working fine... So if getting a new model, why don't you search some more options and try the some high-end dualcore phones from ebay.
Now, regarding your current rom, good to know that u r sticking with your old version. I was searching for a stable ROM that gives a good battery life of 13-14 hours under above average use. Any suggestions by the way??? I tried to tweak the CPU Governor settings in the Performance Settings. My current ROM is very stable but only the battery life seems to drain a lot. I kept the SmartAssV2, Lazy and smoothass settings in the CPU Governor mode. But the overall battery effect is still the same. Only the apps are crashing as JellyBean is new to the apps present. It will take time for apps to get updated, as we saw similar changes during the shift from GB to ICS. I flashed Inverted JB Gapps so I had a very nice black glittery screen. I've read that inverted JB Gapps saves battery. Any comments about this?
Any suggestions for any battery friendly custom ROM???
pls do suggest. If I find any good ones, I wil surely share the info here..
