    Ok.... I downloaded and installed the drivers, Odin &tar files.... nothing opens when I connect the phone to USB. Can't figure why as I've got the drivers installed o.O

    the only thing u should of installed was the drivers on the pc.odin and the tar file is what you will be using to get recovery on the phone.......
    reboot the pc after installing the drivers.............make sure usb debugging is checked on the phone......boot the phone into dl mod......plug the phone into the pc........start odin and see if you dont have a comm#  if you do uncheck the reboot box click on the pda box and fing the tar file you dl dbl click on it and it will go to the pda box....hit start and wait for the green pass............then follow the rest of the post/video

    Your Guide worked perfectly, Thank you ! I now notice that the ability to uninstall / delete apps has gone away. When I try to remove an app like before there was an uninstall "button" to drag it to. Is there another way to delete apps on ARC 1.2 and 1.3? Once again great work and thanks !

    you need to get es file manager from the play store...once installed open it and at the top left tap on it a cpl times you will get a new window..scroll down to tools tap on that scroll to root explorer and tap on that wait and you will get a new window look for W/R and check the boxes on the right side hit ok.......that gives it root permission...now go to system/apps find the one you want and long press on it you will see a delete at the bottom........thats it...be careful of what you delete............

    I'm attaching a screen shot.. I think it is rooted... I was trying to remove a few of the program that came with 1.2 that I know I will never use. I can uninstall downloaded apps, just not the ones that came with 1.2
