I have a unlocked at&t r800at xperia play running the stock at&t firmware 2.3.3, I do have a 2.3.4 r800a north america firmware file, also have latest flashtool installed but even though i put the firmware .tft file in the firmware folder of the flashtool folders when i go to firmware option in flashtools the list to pick firmwares is blank.

Also when starting up flashtool it says something about for 2011 devices make sure mtp mode is off or something like that. Can anyone tell me the steps to install a firmware, such as does the phone need to be on or off and in what mode etc etc and why is the firmware window in flashtools is empty? Thanks

No it is a .ftf it doesnt have zip in it. if it did winrar would have seen it as a zip file.

Maybe the file is corrupted re-download it and see what happens or try another firmware
If none of them works install an older version of flashtool like v 0.13.0.0 or earlier versions

Thanks for the info about trying an older version I didn't find the version you mention but I tried 0.6.6 version and it saw the firmware and it worked thanks.
