Phone [Q] how do I restore Sony Xperia T (LT30p) device validity for original updates

Hi all,

I bought a Sony Xperia T (LT30p) to use with CM as it was listed as supported, however I had some bad experiences and decided to go back to an orignal firmware.

However I got troubles making Sony recoginze my device as an valid original devices and it gives errors when trying to update from Sony desktop software or after installing and getting an update from the installed ROM.

I had to unlock my device with fastboot and I have flashed the boot.img with one from CM. I don't have the oringal boot.img anymore!!

I'm now running build number 91.A.1.140 from some James Bond firmware for the LT30p.

I would love to go back to a state where I can update my phone with the orginal Sony update software.

Can somebody provide some very detailed instructions on how to get this working.

Thank you in advanced

Afaik relocking your bootloader should do the trick. Check the All-in-One thread to be sure though

There you can also find an FTF for relocking the bootloader, though I think Flashtool can do it also now.
