Those packages are for c6902

It might be worth a go. You may have an actual c6902 handset (Check the box and/or SI number) that is now reporting its c6903 due to a build.prop entry

Try it, you can always flash back to stock FTF as you did last time.

Greg, honestly. I'm using C6903. That's written on a box, on that small thing that slides out of the phone and I can use LTE network without a problem. It's a 100% C6903.
I'll do that though, but I don't think that this will change anything.

OK, if you are 100% sure, don't flash the modules

I will have a think and get back to you

I also tried to do ota to.136 which fails after I press install and the phone gets rebooted. I restored my TA so.that's not an issue.

Never do an OTA with an unlocked bootloader, it explicitly says so on the Sony website where you unlock your bootloader.

EDIT, you relocked, that's good.

Which FTF can you flash and get an IMEI working again

I restored my previous backup and flashed stock kernel via ftf and I'm back to where I previously was (except that all of the contents of internal memory is gone)

Update to stock android 4.4 kitkat using SUS or PC Companion or Flashtool (your choice, no difference) then unlock bootloader and do what you want.


I remember when I used to downgrade from android 4..3 (.290) to 4.2 (.534) I used to loose my IMEI. Unless, downgrading to .257 then to .534 So maybe you should get stock android 4.4 before you try 4.4 custom ROM & Kernel
