The latest Sony Ericsson Xperia arc / arc S firmware (4.0.2.A.0.58) was certified on 21 October 2011 according to PTCRB. It has eventually been released into Hong Kong, although judging by the first people to download it, the firmware looks like a minor update over the 4.0.2.A.0.42 firmware that is rolling out globally, which brought Android 2.3.4.

Judging by the reports, both battery life and performance seems to be better and there is also an improvement in wireless performance. The Chinese keyboard also has comes with a new colour. It’s unknown whether we will see this update outside Asia, however we’ll keep you posted. Check out some screenshots below.

    That’s the Japanese keyboard. There are several skins available for it on the market, in addition to the three built-in ones.

    Just got notified that this update is available on my Mk16a as well. Nice to see us get some update love here in the states.

    Hi, we have already had 058 in Italy (at least on the mini pro).

  • The wireless fixes sound promising. Even with the 4.0.2.A.0.42 firmware I’m still having issues with my Arc dropping wifi, requiring me to reboot the router (a Billion 7404VGP).

    Had a few apps that comes with it. MSN messenger apparently not working in Singapore

    Battery life now sucks!!   Just did  4.0.2.A.0.42 upgrade last week, and my battery life now sucks. Also have calls dropping, calls drop before connecting. A complete mess. Did the download via PC companion. Tried one “Repair” already…works a tiny bit better. But this is horrible. Anyone else?
