Hi all. Here you can find the new thing for all Sony (Ericsson) Xperia smartphone users. Bbooff and I together make the update.zip files with the newest original firmware without any changes, only with superuser add, (and we will continue to update it) for all XPERIA phones 2011. We think that it is helpful for XPERIA users and it provides many advantages.

You can make your own custom roms just using winrar. You can delete or change what you want, eq framework-res.apk, bootanimation, fonts, default apps etc... (but dont extract zip, just change files directly in it or the signature of file will be lost)

Moreover if you deleted some system file and your phone crashed, you can repair it by using our update.zip file. Just download it, delete all files which you dont want to restore in the phone. The rest of update.zip flash via recovery and you phone will live...

This is the team work of bbooff (your thanks go to him) and me.

You cannot install this zip through nAa's recovery, you hawe to use recovery provided in kernels

Am I right that it is for unlocked bootloader and original CWM?

I believe the author clearly states that it only works if you flash it through CWM that has been implemented into kernel and not naa' way of cwm.

Meaning that root is in the kernel not the Rom. Most kernels are pre rooted so whatever you flash on them will be rooted.
