Question [Q] How to choose ftf

hello everyone

how do you usually pickup the right ftf for flashing?? is there any special rule or something ?
i'am new to sony's phones, previously i had a Galaxy s2 and i could flash any firmware ( any country/unbranded ) on the phone and it will work.

Thank you

Thank you
If your bootloader is unlockable you can flash any FTF for your device (just to be clear any FTF for Z2 will work on your Z2)

If your bootloader isnt unlockable then only ones for your brand ver will work aka verizon Z2 FTFs only work for Verizon, not even generic (it bricks the device)

Regardless of whether your bootloader is unlocked or not, you should only be flashing FTFs that are for your device model. So if you have a D6503, then you should only flash an FTF meant for D6503, and not one that is for D6502.
