I am not a fan of Roboto. The Google kids have no taste.

Also, if you unlock the boot loader, you will not be able to download and install the final Ice Cream Sandwich software upgrade from Sony Ericsson.

one has to lock the bootloader again in order to have the final ICS

Re: Ice Cream Sandwich alpha ROM available for bootloader unlocked Xperia™ phones

IT WORKS ON ARC TOO. Period. I just flashed it on my xperia Arc and it works on it without any lag. Things i have noticed so far (mostly stated by SE already)-


1. No connectivity whatsoeve), just to show off what sony has developed so far (which is the purpose of putting it online by SE). My comments, looks gingerbreadish (same app drawer, no widgets section in app drawer, same add widgets by long press on home screen, same dock as SE UI).


2. SE dropped the face unlock from Arc S ROM (probably due to lack of front facing camera).


3. Photo widget looks much improved and polished.


4. During playing music controls work on the lockscreen.


5. Same old gingerbreadish lock slider (C'mon SE change it please, it's ICS).


6. Build number is 4.1.C.0.6.


7. Galaxy live wallpaper changed to black hole, with selected ICS wallpapers.


8. Kernel version is 2.6.32.9.


My personal views on this alpha ROM are that if considering that these are not the final developments from SE (implicated by the features shown off in the video with emphasis on music widgets etc.) it is good. On the other hand if the gingerbreadish look is deliberate, then it's a serious concern because this UI defeats the purpose of having a sleek minimal UI and Roboto font in ICS to make it look smart.


Chao,

Re: Ice Cream Sandwich alpha ROM available for bootloader unlocked Xperia™ phones

While not having used this ROM (  Xperia pro :O  ), after seeing the video I'll have to disagree with you on some points.

What you are calling "gingerbreadish" is not Gingerbread at all - it is SE's look. Compare stock Gingerbread to the SE gingerbread skin and you can easily see that they look completely different; stock ICS has also been influenced by SE's look, and many of the ICS features were already in SE's Gingerbread.

Personally, I think ICS is ugly and cluttered  in many ways, and don't want them to blindly follow Google's absent sense of style. I am glad that they haven't yet included the stock-ICS app tray because IMO SE's "Gingerbread" one looks better.
