Download Flashtool and libusbx 1.0.14

Uncompress libusbx log into su and type this command
# ./configure
Now type this command
# make -B
Finally type this command
# make install -B
Congrats you have installed libusbx 1.0.14

Now we have to add these rules but first connect your phone and type this command

In my case is: Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0fce:615d Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB

Now grab this value

Bus 00x Device 00x: ID 0fce:xxxx Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB
Finally we just add these rules at /etc/udev
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0fce", SYSFS{idProduct}=="xxxx", MODE="0777"
Name the rules as 51-flashtool.rules

Uncompress Flashtool and run it as root

in which dream did u see the make command working ? libusbx is missing.. to install it u need the dependaries first. after installing the dependaries it sais that automake command is missing. after installing automake it says that automake version is 1.13 and we need .1.13.4.
so libusbx cant be installed so flashtool is not working. reported from ubuntu 13.10. maybe u are on some very old ubuntu version ? i cant explain it in an other way....

I can't seem to understand ANY tutorial on this. Do we add the properties to 51-flashtool or 99-android? and what do I click on to run flashtool? I don't see anything executable in the folder
