How to install it

You need to

go to settings -> applications -> check unknown sources

Re: Xperia Arc 2.3.4 (4.0.1.A.0.238) Update Available for both LT15i LT15a

:smileyhappy:  Well I have update my Arc to 2.3.4 (4.0.1.A.O.238) using PC Companion. Everything took 15 minutes and went smooth.

- 3D panorma/3D gallery

- New wordtime widget (looks nice together with the "old" weather widget

- large letter at the key-board

- some integrated Facebooks application

- some new maps

- if the screen is more sensitive/responsitive cant really tell

As mention earlier there is no bigger changes - or improvment, but even so it´s nice to see that Sonyericsson has got better and better to be before up date schedule rather than behind.

Nice work Sonyericsson :smileywink:
