This thread will be used to maintain a current download list of the stock firmwares available for the Xperia ion and its variants. Any newly released stock firmwares will be posted here once an FTF has been made. If any link appears dead or you have a mirror location for a file please let me know.

Please do not create any new threads for stock firmware builds. Instead post them in a reply to this thread. This will help keep the forum more organized.

How to Create an FTF file of Your Xperia Firmware (credit to Vijay's Tech Encounters)

What you Need to Create an ftf File:

Sony PC Companion or SEUS
Flashtool and its updates if any.
Internet connection
Xperia phone of course.

Warning and Disclaimer: Take a backup of all important data like contacts, call logs, SMSs, apps, APN and other settings before proceeding further. You may have to perform a clean install of your OS. While for all practical purposes, using Flashtool is safe but there is a very very remote chance of damaging your phone. You've been warned.

1. Install Sony PC Companion and/or SEUS. This will copy the necessary drivers to your PC. Connect your phone with USB Debugging enabled and allow your PC to install the necessary drivers.

2. Connect your phone and update or repair your phone with the latest firmware version. If you update/upgrade, your data will be preserved. If you repair, all data may be lost. So backup everything. Now, your phone is updated with the latest firmware. Keep put aside. We don’t need your phone anymore to create the ftf file.

3. Go to C:\ProgramData\Sony Ericsson\Update Engine\db\13740270\blob_fs folder and look for the biggest three files. The folder “blob_fs” may be located in a different place depending on whether you used PC Companion or SEUS. Perform a search for that folder if you can’t find it. Once you are inside the folder, sort by size and see the 3 largest files were just created (when you updated/repaired your phone). Copy them to somewhere else like C:\firmware.

4. Install Flashtool and open it.

5. Click Advanced > Decrypt Files.

6. Select all the two files and click the right arrow to send them to the right side and click OK. In a moment, you will see a Flashtool pop up window that shows all the decrypted files. Select all the files except the simlock.ta and partition-image.sin files as those are not needed and can cause flashing issues sometimes. Click the right arrow button.

7. Type in the device model next to Device (ie LT28i, LT28at, LT28h), firmware version number next to Version (not android version), and branding next to Branding (For branding if it is not a carrier branded device use Generic or the customization number of the device) and click OK.

8. In the Device Selection window that appears, select your phone model and click OK.

In a moment, your ftf file will be there in the default Flashtool folder C:\Flashtool\Firmwares ready to flash.

If you are going to upload the firmware for people please zip the file first before uploading.

I have the ICS 6.0.C.1.357 for ATT (not official yet) installed in my ION and I want to backup the firmware from the phone but I can't boot in recovery using fastboot (I have tried with recovery-nozomi.img for xperia S).
Is there another way to backup the firmware and create a ftf?

Not that I know of. Where did you get the .357 build from and how did you load it on your phone? If you have the files from that we might be able to do it.

I did an update using sony companion because my phone can get testing versions so I do not have any file.
I want to root it but and I do not want to lose the ICS that is installed.
I think that there is a trick to get the firmware from the sony companion update but I have to come back to a previous version. I do not know if I flash one of the stock version that you uploaded then I will be able to get the update again and get the firmware (which is the goal).
By the way my phone's bootloader is unlock.

And you have the lt28at? Did you get the phone from somewhere "special" and you are saying its ICS? Can you take a screenshot of your about phone page and stuff and post it.

I always get the files to make a ftf from the Sony ericcson-> update service-> db-> blob_fs folder using the two biggest files in the there.

Surprised to see you say its ics when it is only now going into testing with at&t and typically Sony doesn't put out testing version through the commercial software.

Hmm Okay we need to figure out how to get that firmware from you. Do you have those folders that I listed above?
