Default Flashing Error with Flashtool

I was trying to flash my Xperia PLAY with Flashtool v0.8.5.0 but this error keeps coming up:

Code:
ERROR - ERR_SEVERITY="MAJOR";ERR_CLASS="SECURITY_CLASS";"ERR_DYNAMIC="SIN header verification failed"
Any ideas how to fix this error?

EDIT: I know what caused this error, it was because I accidentally selected the X10 FTF that Flashtool comes with when you install it.

Possibly the wrong FTF for your device, double check you have the correct one for your model

It's the correct one, I've used it before and it worked.

Probably got corrupted or something, I'm re-downloading it again and I'll see if it works.

When I load the FTF in Flashtool, none of the firmware contents are displayed, then when I click OK to begin flashing, Flashtool cancels and then automatically disconnects my device.

Not with Flashtool, every time I tried to load the FTF, the Firmware Components aren't listed in the middle, no visible check boxes on right either, click OK, Flashtool says the the firmware is loaded and then right after it says Flashing Canceled. The pop-up window that shows you how to connect in flash mode doesn't even show up.

I thought I was screwed, because I originally un-installed a ton of stock apps including SE Home and had aftermarket replacement apps in their place, when I cleared the user data and cache through Recovery mode. My phone wouldn't even boot, I did that because I was planning on re-flashing my device anyways. I know that all I had to do was re-flash it with the stock firmware, but Flashtool just wouldn't even work for me. I even installed it on my laptop only to have it do the exact same thing, very weird.

So I purchased a few credits for 1.99 EUR on WotanServer.com and used their client to successfully flash my Xperia PLAY and now it's back up and running.

Anyone else having any issues with using Flashtool v0.8.5.0 and the R800a_2.3.4_North America Generic.ftf?

I'm just curious if I'm the only one or not who's having this problem.

Yeah i had that problem to!
I'm from Croatia,and i saw on change log,that some region's can't see .FTF file's middle things.So the solution for me was to download 0.6.9.1.

If that's the reason why, then that's pretty messed up. Because the same FTF worked before on an older version of Flashtool. I just tried to Google an older version of Flashtool and there no where to be found.
