From Sony Ericsson Developer World:

To show our continuous support to the open developer community, and get your valuable feedback, we are today making an alpha ROM of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.1) for Xperia™ arc S, Xperia™ neo V and Xperia™ ray available for download. This is something we have not done before, and we are obviously very excited about it.

Step 1: Ensure that your Xperia Arc S, Neo V or Ray is on the latest software release i.e. 4.0.2.A.0.42. This can be checked under settings. If you aren’t on this build, update using Sony Ericsson’s PC Companion.

Step 5: Extract the contents of the zip file you downloaded in step 3 to your fastboot directory.

Step 6: Using a command prompt, navigate to your fastboot directory.

Step 7: You will find three files inside the extracted .zip folder. You must flash them using fastboot.
