Hello. I'm new at this great forum. Excuse my english, I'm from Spain. Several days trying to solve my problem, reading at google, forums, etc. This is the matter:
I bought recently an Xperia ray, bootloader blocked, updated to 4............62 Then, I realised that this firmware cannot be roouted. So I`ve downloaded previous firmwares, 042 and 058 and tried to flash via flashtool so as to revert my 062 firmware to those 042 or 058. ut there is no way to flash. I start flashing win the phone switched off and ge this message:
05/009/2012 14:09:30 - INFO - <- This level is successfully initialized
05/009/2012 14:09:31 - INFO - Flashtool Version 0.6.6 built on 2012-01-08 19:34:23

However, I previously put USB debugging on, for sure.

Then, I tried conecting USB cable with the phone switched on, and get this message:
05/045/2012 13:45:03 - INFO - <- This level is successfully initialized

05/046/2012 13:46:27 - INFO - Android version : 2.3.4 / kernel version : 2.6.32.9-perf
After that, no further actions, and no flash done. I dont know what else i can do. Help, please. I also tried using different usb ports, with no result.
Thanks in advance.

You have to unlock your bootloader first AFAIK.

Firmware: 6.1.1.B.1.54 CE
ROM: eXperience v2.1.3 with v16 memory tweak
Kernel: Munjeni v14
Mods:
- Bootloader unlocked & rooted
- CWM Touch v5.5.0.4

Bazonga, thanks for answering, but there's no need to unblock bootloader . We can flash and update or downgrade firmware with bootloader blocked.
Eventually, I was able to solve my problem. I downgraded to 042 firmware using wotanserver. I was doing one thing wrong: Not putting phone on flashmode correctly. Then, I pushed volume down button when plugging usb and it worked fine.

Basicly what you mean is that i can flash stock 0.42 from stock 0.62 with wotanserver , just like that and no harm to the phone will be done?
