Hey,

in latest firmware there is a update to S1Boot (to Version R10A21). I think most users who DONT USE PCC/SEUS will not have the update because Flashtool does not decrypt it correctly.

I packed it up into German Firmware, so if you are interested you can flash this Firmware and then just reflash ANY OTHER Firmware if you dont want to stay on German one. After S1Boot got updated it will stay updated no matter what Firmware you flash afterwards, becasue normally it is not included.

File can be downloaded here from my Firmware collection, directlink to Xperia T folder:

Regards

This is a small appreciation for all the effort you put in XPERIA devices.

Hi Binary, Can I confirm that I can backup my current stock rom (7.0.A.3.195) using CWM recovery (advanced kernel v4), then flash this for S1 update, then (correct me if I am wrong please!) re-flash kernel and then restore rom via CWM: resulting in being back to my current rom but with S1 Boot update.

Also just check that I should use "Generic DE (S1Boot-Update).ftf" - is this the one you refer to in the OP.?

Thanks for your patience

It is included inside the SEUS files for the 195 Version, but "problem" is that we need to update Flashtool so that it decrypts the File correctly. For now we only added the "alternate" decryption for Loader, now S1Boot seems to be updated too Which is quite good, maybe they add features in future like button for recovery

Stage, I flagged 195 via official method not flash tool, so why did I not have the update?

That's fantastic, really miss the option to reboot or reboot into recovery
