I've seen that, but now if you have ICS you can root your phone very easy. That application really worked for me

Re: ICS reviews- Post Yours...

Here is my review of ICS. I have flashed french version and than repaired with PCC.

First of all radios are working very well and they are stable. WiFi connects easily and the range is also increased. 3G speed is also very good and no network loss.Slightly smiling Face So now my phone becomes 'Phone'.

ICS runs very smoothly. No lag or slow down. RAM consumpsion is high compared to GB but still very smooth. Games and application loading time is equal or less.

Camera has the major addition of SCN AUTO which works very well in sunlight but not in low light condition. Image captured has good details and size is also increased. 720p videos are also very good.

Battery life is same as on GB but it increases when extended battery life is activted.

Some very good additions are WiFi direct, bluetooth tethering, data usage moniter.

ICS is worth to upgrade.

Re: ICS reviews- Post Yours...

hello everyone,  am copying and pasting my post from another thread here on ICS for Xperia U

Confirming, ICS now available for Xperia U. I connected my phone to the computer and started PC companion, the notification for update popped up from the taskbar as soon as the PC companion detected the phone.

Model ST25i

SI number: 1261-6383 - India

Updated build Number: 6.1.1.B.1.10

Android Verson: 4.0.4

Sleeker look to the GUI, lock screen appearance, options changed, My music more or less renamed to walkman - visualizations added, gallery removed - instead moves and albums added where you can directly navigae to video or images, chrome browser added, settings menu rearranged, some changes in the phone contacts section, power saver option removed, yet to find out about battery and other performances. Gmail has good improvements - can change multiple accounts, refresh and perform many other functions fro the same screen i.e no need to tap the menu and back keys to go t those options, can scroll sideways to check next or previous email

If using wi-fi, battery life sucks on the older vesion but I guess that is common for smartphones with 1300mAH of battery.

Look forward to hear more reviews about performance

What I want to know, how to highlight text in a text box (say while typing an sms). Earlier, tapping and holding on the ext box would pop out the opions to select word, select all. It does not happen in ICS. It shows one of the pointer and a magnifier..

I have been a sony ericsson user since 2005, so when I saw the "my music" change to "walkman", I took a peek in to see whether they got the megabass backDizzy Face

THANKS SONY!!!!!!

The wait has been worth it. Dispite the bashing going on in this forum over last coupla days, You guys have delivered again.

I had updated in the noon and till now have not faced any bugs.

Here is to name a few.

1) Better battery management.

2) Better control over pre-installed application as compared to GB. you can disable an app and uninstall some.

3) Better RAM Management.
