I have the new firmware 4.0.1.A.0.238 LT15i updated via PCC today.
Seems snappier (wishful thinking).

3D gallery app.
Screenshots in power menu.
New time widget.
Facebook share integration stuff.
Here is 4.0.1.A.0.238 Nordic_Telia.ftf for flashing:
get the Flashtool From here
Install it and you will see 5 folders
take the firmware to the "Firmwares" folder
click on Falsh
it will ask you to connect your phone on Flashmode (turn off your phone, press the back button, then connect the USB) press OK
This is an step by step guide

Make sure you backup everything
Use one of these links to download the Backup & Restore app
How to install it
You need to
go to settings -> applications -> check unknown sources
download IO File Manager
download the backup & restore app, transfer it to your SD card, use OI file manager to find it -> tap on it -> install it
just to play it safe sync your contacts w/ google if you haven't already
open your phonebook
Don't worry so much about backing up your apps
on your computer go to
market.android.com -> log in -> click on My Library -> and send all your apps to your phone
if you don't want to use the backup & restore app then
Install "backup SMS" to back up your SMS and MMS to your Gmail
or your SMS use
"backup & restore SMS"
or for your MMS use "Save MMS"
And for call logs this is great

first of all it cant show 2.3.4 cz its not released yet
it'll release in october..
and yeah since u already did the flashing of 2.3.3 and firmware 4.0x i think u cant do it..
if u get an official update of 2.3.4 u can update it
just check it again and see whats the new update it is showing :smileywink:

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:
