Ugh! I'm tired of waiting for ICS. What I really want is Android RPBC - Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Yes, it's a mouthful... but so gooder.

Just rooted my arcS with ICS rom and kernel
MsM8255T is over-clocked to an amazing
1.9 mhz i can feel the power, its faster then my
GS2 which is 1.6.... But 512 ram is a big draw- back.
Any-one with an arcS rooted????!!

Overclocked at 1.9Ghz.. Hmm. You better be careful buddy, you'll be burning your chipset in no time.
Also, your phone might be blazing fast since it can run probably every app on the Play Store, and probably shows no lags whatsoever in the UI BUT, a single core will never be able to match the pure computing prowess of a dual core unless your chipset can do hyper threading (which I have only seen in the Medfield device).

go to their blog and read article "difference b/w gingerbread and ics". u'll find that they are saying ics needs 1 gb ram , 512 mb cant handle ics. they say , 1/3 of 512 mb is used by system apps, therefore, 380 mb left can handle ics but then u cant play heavy games that uses more ram, they also say that hardware acceleration uses gpu and therefore uses ram. they want us to take decision now whether to gear up to ICS or remain on "stable gingerbread".
should xperia 2011 owners ask for a value pack upgrade instead of heavy ics????

I'm a bit disappointed to know that they'll be updating the Arc S ahead of the original Arc, and F**ck May is bit of a long wait, but I hope it'll be worth the F**kin' wait. . .

Other manufacturers are just updating a few phones while sony is updating all of them from 2011 xperia line up.
And their are doing it before other OEM's.

Sony have learnt from the past and has surpassed all other manufacturers when it comes tom the ICS update. I am a very satisfied Sony Ericsson user and I have influenced many people to purchase Sony/Sony Ericsson phones partly due to this and other factors like their emphasis on camera features, screen quality and styling. If they keep up this good work, I will definitely continue buying Sony phones and influence others to do the same. Can't wait for ICS.
