Hi,

I am always afraid of not being able to restore my phone with some sort of backup. Due to the fact that the amazing flashtool is a bit to high tech for me I was able to find a way to easy restore my device. Here is how I did this:

1: Downloade Sony Update Service from here: (Click)

2: Install it

3: Open it (it is wise to close Sony PC companion)


4: Accept the terms and contitions and click next


5: Select your device:


6: Click Next

7: Follow intstuctions on screen. If you are running the latest stock it will tell you. You can abort it and you can continue it. You also see some warnings about loosing data!!


8: After flash it will tell you to unplug device and turn it on.

9: DONE

There's no Xperia SP in new version.
Is that mean Xperia SP is no more compatible or should I choose another model.

No I've contacted Sony and they said that if you are on Windows 8/8.1 you need to run the program in compatible mode Windows 7..

No you first need to relock your bootloader and restore TA. After that you can use this. But you need to be on a 2.254 based rom before relocking so flashing any ftf with Flashtool will work aswel.

That is very very dumb. The tutorial of Doomlord indicates that it is very very important to create a TA backup before unlocking bootloader. You can relock bootloader but features that needed the TA files (DRM keys) will no longer work.
