Ice Cream Sandwich Theme for Xperia Arc and Arc S Running Gingerbread

XDA Member burakgon has just released a brand new Ice Cream Sandwich theme for the Xperia Arc/Arc S. The theme seems to have been originally developed for the Neo, but works just as well with the Arc or Arc S. If you are running Gingerbread, but want to give that cool ICS look to your device, this is just the theme for you.It includes the ICS home launcher and icons, and well–just transforms your device totally!

Have a look at the key features of this awesome theme:

  • Status bar controls (Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS etc)
  • Battery + notification bar icons
  • ICS icons
  • Dialer + Camera + Music + Genie Widget (News & Weather)
  • Boot animation
  • UI Sounds + Ringtones + Notifications
  • Full theme!

And the developer has been gracious enough to give us a zip file, which you can flash easily through Clockworkmod recovery, and have this theme running on your Arc in a jiffy. Of course, you need to be rooted and have CWM installed on your Arc though; but I suspect that if you are reading this, you already are.
