first of all, boot your phone and connect it to usb. Then run adb devices in a CMD window. Note down the serial, you will need it.

Okay, in the flashtool folder, check if

[FLASHTOOL FOLDER]/custom/mydevices/[DEVICE SERIAL]/ulcode.txt

exists.

If not, create the folders along the way there and then use notepad or something very lightweight to create the ulcode.txt. Put in the code, be sure to enter the code without the 0x, so just the code as it came from Sony. Save the file and start FlashTool.

Now the BLU button should offer to unlock again, but there is a difference: it will now use the serial and code to wipe the lock using the FT relock/unlock method. Without that file in place it will use the fastboot method.
Thank you so much

Hi,

I have used the previously mentioned method to unlock the bootloader.

Everything using the flashtool seems to work fine, says unlock finished etc, with no errors.

However, in the service info menu on the phone, still says: Bootloader unlock allowed: yes.

Is this right?
Kindest Regards,
Andrew Robinson.

Can you post the output log from flashtool when you have done this

Also, have you unlocked using the instructions from the Sony website already? Or are you using flashtool for a first time unlock.

If you are unsure, then read this.
If you are still unsure, watch this.

Hi,

I had previously unlocked using the instructions from Sony.

I then relocked using Flashtool a while ago.

I then tried to unlock using Sony method without success.

Please find below a copy of the log output:

If you're referring to the one about the folder structure, I think from the log output you should be able to see it was done.

If not I did follow what you say.
