Default [Q] Flashtool and Fastboot

I cant seem to install my flashmode and flashtool drivers to my xperia sp. I am able to get into flashmode for about 5-6 secs. But when the computer is install the drivers into my phone, it leaves flashmode halfway and reboot on its on. Can anyone teach me how to fix this issue?

Go to C:/Flashtool/drivers

Then instal drivers located there, it worked for me when I first used flastool.

Well if you have done everything right with flashtool's installation, then you're doing something wrong while flashing.

If you want to flash a new firmware into your phone you must plug-in your device in "normal" mode (not flash mode), then:

1) Execute flashtool
2) select the "flash device" icon
3) select "flashmode" option, click "OK"
4) select firmware you want to flash (make sure which options you want to be checked/unchecked)
5) click on "flash" button

This is when Flastool will ask you to
->Unplug device
->Power off
->Press Vol- button and connect while pressing (this is flash mode)


Give it a try, also read a little bit about Flashtool procedures.

Cheers
