You would need to contact your local Sony Mobile support center about downgrading your phone software.

Re: Downgrade from android 4 to android 2.3.3

technically there is a way to do it, but there is a 50/50 chance your phone will be a paperweight by the end of it.

It really does suck SE said "heres a shiny new thing, have fun! but you cant get rid of it...

seriously you need to do a safe rollback program so people stop flashing it themselves because its not cheap and frankly you owe it to your customers. The amount you screwed over anyone with a x10 down you could do without that =/

you can't say suck? really? what about blow or swallow? -.-

i have an LT18i and im having the same issue, except i know vaguely how to roll it back. its mostly guesswork but meh.

and for your comforting knowledge SE here is the report log.

its curious it misreads usb debugging as being off but there you go. i would quiet happily be downgrading now if i could. its worth the risk, ICS is SHOCKINGly bad on the arc s
