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.
