This is Guide to install official ICS Rom on 2011 and 2012 Xperias

Flashing your mobile is at your own risk,flashing may void your warranty and SONY would be in no way responsible for any damage.

It is suggested to remove sim card and sd card as well as format sd card before installing ICS

Backup everything before proceeding if you wish. Alternatives on How to backup Xperias

 

Before Flashing: If you are on original firmware ( that came with mobile ) then dial *#*#7378423#*#* in dialer > service info > software info > take a screenshot and keep the screenshot safe for future use

Optional : if you wan’t to backup your current fimrware then follow the first post below by 100rabh791

El modo flash es conectar tu telefono apagado y presionando la tecla de “Volumen abajo”, asi aplica para modelos : WT19/SK17/ST15 y supongo que para los demas Xperias 2011

Wait for it to prepare. It will ask you to connect your mobile, follow the steps carefully and connect

Once flashing finishes, it would ask you to disconnect your mobile and restart.( It may take several minutes to restart ). and done.

Its your wish if you want to stay on it but i suggest you to repair your phone software using SUS. It will reinstall the original ICS software in your mobile 

For that download SUS and follow the onscreen instructions SONY UPDATE SERVICE
