The official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY
will not be out until later this spring, but if you are eager to have a taste of Google's latest and greatest, you can try out this early ICS ROM that just surfaced on the web

The ROM is based on Android 4.0.3 and retains most of the looks and feel of the stock Ice Cream Sandwich experience. Judging by what the folks are saying in the comments, albeit being an early build, the ROM is still stable enough to be taken for a quick spin. Of course, there are things that don't work yet, such as the smartphone's camera, the touchpads, and the Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, but let's hope that these issues get taken care of soon.
If you want to give it a shot anyway, don't forget to back up your data in advance, and if you have no experience with tinkering with your smartphone's software, you might want to just wait until the official Ice Cream Sandwich update hits the airwaves. Now that we've warned you, the ROM can be obtained at the source link below.
