According to Sony's official statement, Ice Cream Sandwich (a.k.a. "ICS", a.k.a. Android 4.0) is coming to Xperia Arc at end of April or beginning of March of 2012. If you are worried about the cons of rooting (i.e. voiding warranty, possibly breaking the handset, etc.) I would suggest that you wait for the official update from Sony and/or your carrier.

There are several "silent cameras" available on google play, as e.g. Silent Camera and Silent Camera (and many more) for photos. I remember there was some settings app to completely silence the camera (regardless of the camera app used), but I currently cannot find it.

In my case it didn't seem to have anything to do with any software configuration or combination on my phone and was purely hardware related. This is not to say that in some cases the software you may or may not have on your device would be causing a memory leak / stack overflow and causing your device to reboot as a result. I couldn't, and wouldn't, believe ...

For sure! Hopefully there are professional ROM cookers at XDA-Developers that cook ROMs without any kind of bloatware. Here are some articles that I recommend you to check before flashing a new ROM: Unlocking The Bootloader Updating Firmware/Flashing ROMs Optional: A Beginners Guide To Modding And Tweaking The Arc After you done all that you are good to ...

Problem with most log files is: They do not survive a boot, as they are stored on tmpfs (a temporary file system in RAM). So once you have to boot, they are gone. Leaving your best chances to some app capturing the log and saving the capture to SDCard. As far as I know, aLogCat is capable of that. An alternative is to send the log to another machine (such as ...

The programming support for the FM radio service that is in place within CyanogenMod 7.2, is probably not compatible with the chipset used in Xperia arc S. Hence the omission of the FM radio, it supports only Broadcom BCM4325, Silicon Industry 4708 and 4709, and lastly Texas Instrument WL1271. Looking at pdadb.net for the specification of the handset - the ...

Check what input methods your device has by following the screen shots- You should be able to see all installed keyboards by following the guide, and select the one which suits you. Or if you don't have much options there, install a new keyboard input method from Market or install Swype beta by registering here.

See my answer and my comment about replacing a font file Droidsansfallback.ttf. I am sure you can search and find many file sharing sites sharing this file. You can also extract the font file from any of the Android device that you may have. After replacing the font file and restarting the phone, chances are pretty high that you might not be able to see the ...

This could be caused by flashing an incompatible GApps package. If that's not the case (and you are sure you have the correct/compatible GApps installed), try the following: Open the "Google Play" app and press the home button to return Go to Settings → Applications → Manage Applications Select the "ALL" tab, Search for "Google Play Store" and ...

The clock shown on the lock screen is part of the lock screen itself. The clock on your home screen is a widget. The only way to get the lock screen clock on your home screen is to find a widget that looks the same. There are plenty of widgets on the Google Play store, and if you can't find one you like you could always write one yourself!

I once got that on my Xperia phone when I was transferring a 150 MB file over bluetooth. Some things you can try: Try transferring another file. If it transfers, send the other file. If your phone is too close to the other device try moving your phone away from it. Turn off bluetooth, then turn it back on. Pair the device(s) with the phone.

Is that for the CM9 RC1 that was released yesterday? :D There's two things you need to do: Remove the simlock first! (Flashing a ROM with simlock on could spell disaster) Unlock the bootloader to enable you to run custom roms. As for the way things are, there's no true CWM recovery for the Sony due to the inherent nature of how Sony does it (Its ...

Lockscreen Calendar is a fairly lightweight app to display your next few upcoming events on your lockscreen. Unfortunately, it does not currently support recurring events.

A "baseband" would generally refer to modem firmware. It seems like the first step is to modify the modem firmware so CM7 can use it. Does this flashtool have a linux binary? (This tool seems to be unique to SE phones, I didn't have to use flashtool to modify HTC phones, only fastboot.) Found Flashtool. XDA link | Source Code Repository

Typical case where an app, in this case socialphonebook (package com.sonyericsson.android.socialphonebook), has messed up (or lost) its configuration and seems unable to recover from this. Without root you can only try to delete the apps data (Settings -> Manage Applications). But be careful, since this is the phonebook app on the xeperia, you will lose all ...
