Procedure to Root Sony Xperia ARC S with unlocked bootloader on ICS
Developer explains that he initially had 4.0.3 Kernel. He connected his phone to Sony PC Companion and it showed that an update was available. This update was 4.0.4. So, he flashed 4.0.4 on his device using flash tools 0.6.8 and excluded Kernel from it. The best thing as per him is, the codes and such things were same just like in 4.0.3.
