Default [Q] Need Help

I'm trying to flash my zl and I thought that I downloaded the ftf file for flash tool, but all I downloaded is flashable_101.part1.rar and part 2. Flashtool Xperia flashing tool (v0.9.16.1) doesn't seem to understand a .rar, and neither do I for that matter. I just need EXACT information on how to flash my zl C6506 to android (4.3) 10.4.1.B.0.101. 4.4.2 10.5.a.0.230 has made my phone unusable and I just want to go back. I was very happy with 4.3 and I've read through all of the forums about which version etc..., but I'm not a developer, I'm a network guy. I just want instructions on how download and properly flash my phone, no assumptions please. Just directions, I'll donate to whomever helps me get my phone fixed. Sony doesn't seem to care, but I spent a lot of money on this phone and I just want it to work.

1. Download the FIrmware
2. DOwnload the flashtool
3. Put the FTF on firmwares foleder (inside the C:/Flashtool/Firmwares)
4. Connect your phone into flashmode (or fastboot i forget which one) by turning off your phone and hold volume up button while plug the usb
5. Click on "Thunder" icon and select the FTF and Flash it.. (If you want to upgrade don't tick Wipe Data and Cache, if your phone is already bricked, or stuck in booting, then wipe your Data and Cache)
6. Only 5 steps

If it help, press thanks button
If it helps, don't forget to press Thanks button

You'll have to unpack .part1 and .part2 with winrar, winzip or 7z (all you have to do is right-click on .part1 and select "unpack". It will automaticly unpack .part2 and you'll get ftf file that you'll need to put in flashtool/firmware folder. If you get zip file when you unpack those two part, that means you got file that flashable from recovery, but If you don't have recovery installed on phone , you can't do much with it.
So look for ftf firmware files that you flash with flashtool, not for zip files that is flashable with recovery.

Once you have ftf files in flashtool/firmware folder, in flashtool press lighting icon and choose "flash mode" and choose firmware from list.
Click flash, wait untill flashtool is prepair files and once it's done (it will tell you) press and hold volume-down on phone and while that button is still pressed connect usb cable.

Out of town, and just got back. Followed your directions now it just keeps rebooting. Directions were not exact. There was no unpack on the right click using 7-zip. The flash tool said to hit the back button, however I held down the down volume and what's listed below is what the log says. Now the phone

Did you even try to power on phone in those 37 seconds when flashing was finished?

Try with master reset (remove sdcard and hold reset button untill it vibrate 3 times)

Also, is your model c6506?
