Picked up a Z1C a few days ago, branded O2 (UK).

Installed Sony PC Companion, I believe the drivers are loaded, installed Flashtool 0.9.16.0 (64-bit) and the Z1C/Flash drivers as instructed.

When I hook up the phone with vol down, device manager shows up a 'semc flash' device, or similar. Flash tool detects it.

When I try and flash the UK generic ROM, I get this:

Any ideas folks? Just want to get rid of the branding really


.. or should I just stick with the O2 4.4.2? Looks like the generic ROM i'm trying to flash is older..
