Hello. I had my Xperia S rooted with kingroot and I had also installed Lucky Patcher to block ads in the apps. My cousin was playing with my phone and when I got it back I found that many apps are misbehaving. I simply unrooted my fone and made a hard reset. When my fone rebooted Igound that many apps like fFacebook and fm radio are missing. Please help me to restore my phone.
Thanks

You can find a good stock based ROM and flash it from the recovery.

Mohit. I have downloaded this file but when I paste it into flashtool's firmware folder, it doesn't recognize the file. It is a zip file and when I unzip it, I get a lot of files with .sin extension. Please suggest me what to do. I have installed every driver, put my fone into usb debugging. Allowed unknown sources, boot loader unlocked, almost every thing is done but in the flash mode when I klik on flashmode, I get a pop up where I have to select the firmware, but the zip file or its extracts are not shown there.
