I am interested in buying the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc in a couple o f days, but I have a few questions.

I have heard that it runs Android 2.3, but with a Sony Ericsson shield around it.

I was wondering if there are good ROMS by professional developers that you can flash onto the device. Roms that are not bloated with all the Sony Ericson crap.


The smartphone I own now is a HTC HD2, I can flash good custom roms on the device. I download my roms from XDA-Developers.

    +1 thank you. I thought xda was only for htc devices. I am going to check the links out. Although I am not sure which new device I should choose. The Xperia Arc of the Samsung Galaxy S2.
