arc s restore

hello guys... just bought my first android SE from my friend

the arc s i hv bought from my friend is not running the SE original stock rom

it is now running MIUI 2.1.6

can anyone help me how to restore it to it's original stock ROM? 2.3.4?
oh btw, when i install the PC companion, the PC companion detect my phone as the LT15i (a.k.a arc) not LT18i (arc s)

but the camera is 8megapixel and 1.4 Ghz processor, is this a problem?

Re: arc s restore

simple, remove the battery and look there, does it say LT15i/a or LT18i/a?
