Xperia FirmwareA new firmware update for the Sony Ericsson Xperia family is currently rolling out. The 4.0.2.A.0.62 firmware is currently available for the Xperia arc, arc S, neo, neo V and PLAY. The firmware is still based on Android 2.3.4 and it seems that this update is mainly targeted to those in the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region. If you want to download it then WotanServer is offering free flashing at the moment.

We haven’t come across any changelog, but it appears that this new firmware offers only minor bug fixes. If you do download, just be aware that you won’t be able to root using the zergRush method. The only way around this is by installing the old 4.0.2.A.0.42 stock kernel onto the handset (unlocking your boot loader is not required for installing old stock kernels, this is only needed for custom kernels). See a screenshot below.
