Sony Released Ice Cream Sandwich beta ROM for Sony Xperia phones

Wanted to update your 2011 Xperia smartphone to ICS? your wait is over now. Sony has decided to release the beta version of the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for its 2011 Xperia smartphones today. 

If you install this beta Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, you will lose Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Google Apps as well as the ability to upgrade to the official update later. The Ice Cream Sandwich beta ROM is recommended for advanced developers to install due to the complexity required to do so, and the instability of the software.

Sony warned:

“Even though a lot of the basic functionality of this ICS beta ROM is working, you should only download and install the beta version if you are an advanced developer. This is not the final software, and the stability of the software may not be ideal as it has not been finally tested and bugfixed.”
“You must acknowledge that the software is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind, expressed or implied, and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.”Also, if you unlock the boot loader, you will not be able to download and install the final Ice Cream Sandwich software upgrade for Xperia™ phones.

So those of you who can deal with the shortcomings of a beta ROM and want to go through the hassle of the manual installation, hit the source link below for the files and instructions on how to do so. Let us know how it goes!
