Hi, wondering if anyone can please help me.

course of events:

1) original FW rooted with bin4ry.v32

2) 14.2.A.0.290 rooted with NUT's method

3) 14.3.A.0.757 updated and rooted also with NUT's method; tried to do Advance Wipe in TWRP (with everything except for Ext. SD) but had 'failed' error so ended up with just a 'general' data wipe, went OK. Then flashed the 14.3.A.0.757 FW ok (from Ext. SD). Using flashtool to flash the stripped 14.3.A.0.757.ftf, went OK. booted up the phone with .757 no problem, however noticed that freshly installed apps were some how already configured and setup even though I have not set anything yet. I figured maybe it loaded up the data from .290 hence, the data wipe may not be done properly.

4) 14.3.A.0.757 again to see if the issue with the apps will rectify, however, still getting 'failed' error with TWRP Advance Wipe. I ended up 'format' data and tried TWRP advance wipe......again, 'failed' error! Tried to deselect USB-OTG, surprisingly Advance wipe was 'successful'. Then flashed with 14.3.A.0.757 flashable.zip again, this time it flashed pretty fast. so I proceed with flashtool, went well. rebooted and got stuck at Sony Logo. COULD NOT get back into TWRP to reflash.....ended up having to reflash 14.3.A.0.757 using Sony's Update Service app (SUS). Everything is ok, phone is working fine. However, I cannot go into recovery mode to flash with TWRP to root anymore. I noticed that when I press power, it vibrates once......Sony Logo.....Xperia logo and wipe screen. It doesn't vibrate twice anymore when the Sony logo comes up.

any suggestions?

Thank you and sorry for the long thread. Just want to be as precise as I can.

Try again doing these steps.
1. Reflash stock rom.
2. Downgrade by flashing 14.1.G [ NUT ] (android 4.2.2)
4. Use bin4ry's Root and restore. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460
5. Flash NUT's dual recoveries. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2261606
6. Download 14.3.A.0.757flashable and stripped FTF.: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2711982
7. Put 757flashable.zip on your SD card or internal memory.
8. Disconnect USB from phone.
9. Through Windows, put the FTF in flashtool's firmware folder
10.Reboot phone to TWRP's recovery (on the green LED press volume down)
11. Through Recovery flash the 757 zip.
12. Don't reboot, go to the menu, click power options, select power off.
13. Insert USB to phone while holding volume down.
14. Flash the FTF file.
15. Celebrate.

There's probably a shorter way to do this, but this is what I did and my phone works fine. If you want to deodex visit this link: https://mega.co.nz/#!WgwRDQDa!UlO0Vx...O6_zf5zhGpfktI. Wipe dalvik-cache after flashing the deodex file.

I am not sure certain steps....
1) how do I reflash stock firmware, which firmware? Also how, using flashtool? Sony Update service software?

2) How do I downgrade, also using flashtool?

4) when you said 'restore' after root with bin4ry's, also with flashtool?

5) Should I delete the old dual recoveries currently on my ext sd?

this is for C6906 or doesn't matter

thanx

thanx

1) You re-flash stock firmware by going here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_d...WVk/edit?pli=1. (Link provided by xperiafirmware.com) That's assuming your model number corresponds to the file. If you have C6902 or other, don't use it. Google it.

2) Yeah you use flashtool. Click the thunderbolt icon, click flashmode, then select 14.1.G. Should say [NUT] under branding.

3)Root and restore is the name of the application provided by bin4ry. You have the option to root your phone along with restoring it back to un-rooted state. That is ran by "RunMe.bat".

4) When you run the .exe, it'll automatically put the recovery files. Make sure your USB debug is turned on and you accept Root access (superuser request).

Again, this could probably be cut to less steps, but this is what I did.

You mean c6906? Go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2714351

As for dual recoveries that were on your phone, those will be gone when you flash the stock sony rom. Remove the recoveries off your sd card just in case and add the newer recovery files through the .exe or .bat from NUT.

I want to confirm a few things before I follow your steps. (question in BOLD)

1. Reflash stock rom ------------------using fw from the link above (C6906_14.3.A.0.757_CA Generic.ftf or C6906_14.3.A.0.757_Customized_US_1276-7484_R4C.ftf) with flashtool

2. Downgrade by flashing 14.1.G [ NUT ] (android 4.2.2) -------------- after flashing with the .757 fw in step 1, flash this fw with flashtool; but I only see 14.1.G [NUT] for c6903 does it matter?

4. Use bin4ry's Root and restore. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460

5. Flash NUT's dual recoveries. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2261606 ---------- as mentioned from your post above (underlined), remove the recoveries off my ext sd before flashing NUT's latest dual recoveries, which is the TWRP folder correct?

6. Download 14.3.A.0.757flashable and stripped FTF.: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2711982

7. Put 757flashable.zip on your SD card or internal memory.

8. Disconnect USB from phone.

9. Through Windows, put the FTF in flashtool's firmware folder

10.Reboot phone to TWRP's recovery (on the green LED press volume down)

11. Through Recovery flash the 757 zip.

12. Don't reboot, go to the menu, click power options, select power off.

13. Insert USB to phone while holding volume down.

14. Flash the FTF file. --------- I assumed the stripped ftf in flashtool

15. Celebrate. ----------- Hopefully, this will be the case


THANK YOU so much for bearing with me!

I had it in flash mode on my older Z1 before launching flashtool and it worked fine.

But yeah, your method cuts my lengthy process. Thanks
