I don't even have the original firmware to flash back to yet. The international firmware is great., my biggest issue is that some text messages, from some people ( not all, not sure if it had to do with phone Contacts vs my gmail contacts) will show on the lock screen, but when the phone is unlocked, I can't find the text messages anywhere.
I also don't get the 4G icon in the status bar up top to often, it usually says 3G or H, but I think it really is 4G speed, it is much faster than what I have seen of 3G.
I prefer this firmware to the AT&T variant, it is more like a pure Sony firmware like you would see on an unlocked phone. Missing text messages are kind of a big deal, and I may want to switch back, wish we had root so I could just back up and restore easier.:(

Hey guys, got my ion in-hand. Wanted to backup firmware b4 doing anything for all our sake. Will flashtool work without screwing anything up?
Also, can't help but notice the missing curved screen. Anybody know what up? All pics even ones on the box show it curved but mine certainly ain't. Is that the case w you alls or did I just get fckd??? eb

I've only made the ftf after getting the two largest blob_f files from the sues folder. Don't even know how you would do it using just the software on the phone.

What do you mean by curved screen?

Loaded the international firmware on my LT28at and it works fine so far. Loaded the apn that I posted earlier and the wifi hotspot worked fine. Not in an LTE area though so I couldn't test that. I'm setting it all up now and will try using it for the next few days and see if I notice any issues.

I have a Xperia S bought this one because 4G (still waiting for deliver). Please test 4G if it's working. If it does I think should create a guide for flashing inter nation ROM, setting etc...
