Hi guys,
I am stuck in a very bad sitituation. I have installed a custom rom, but after some time I came to know I have lost root access. My phone's BLlocked. So cannot install cmw recovery without root. I tried flashing official Sony Xperia sk17i 4.1.b.587 .ftf file. But I am getting error as FLASHING ABORTED and the device restarts. I am attaching the flasboot screenshot. Please help me flash the stock rom, then I will be able to again gain root access.

Thank You.

Download ftf from here http://www.mediafire.com/?s166qsg8qaaxc43, place it into firmwares folder(delete all inside the folder before). Flash in flashtools, then flash the firmware that you want

Have you tried to repair it via PC Companion or SEUS?

Reinstall flashtool and try (don't forget to install flashtool drivers) if the problem still persists I would recommend installing flashtool and it's drivers to another computer and flash from it. It should definitely work.

Click thanks if I helped you!

Try this... Don't connect your mobile first... Choose ftf in flashtool... It will prepare files for flashing.. Then will ask to connect your mobile.. Plug your device in flashmode.. Should work..

Yes, do it like rachit.rc96 said, don't connect the mobile first

If this doesn't work, check the box with "no final verification" when you select the firmware and try it again. But if you do this, be sure that this is the right ftf for your device
