Hi guys, I have this 2nd hand Xperia SP. It's already at Android 4.3, it is a Singapore firmware.



I want to go back to an old rootable firmware so I can back up its TA partition before unlocking its bootloader. My question is, can I just flash any .257 firmware(regardless of customization number)? Like the one in here -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...53&postcount=3

Or can anybody link me to the same Singapore customization as mine, the old rootable firmware.

Thanks all in advance.

then backup TA & unlock bootloader

Thanks.
But I've read some had issues on battery gauge acting abnormal after firmware downgrade, is this a wide issue?
