XDA Forums

For a good up-to-date summary of Xperia Pro resources see the Complete List of Roms | Kernels | Rooting/Other for Xperia Pro (MK16a/i) iyokan thread.

The Xperia Pro only received its own dedicated forum section on XDA in early 2014 (almost 3 years after its launch!). Development threads for the Xperia Pro have now been moved to the Xperia Pro Android Development section, however, there remain numerous ROMs which remain in the Xperia Arc Developement section and are compatible with the Pro.

Prior to 2014, Xperia Pro was also discussed in the Xperia Arc forum section, so there may be some topics still left over at the Xperia Arc General Discussion section

Stock Sony Firmwares

The Stock firmware bundles below originate from the Sony Update Service and are repacked as .ftf (FlashTool files). Use Flashtool to flash them from your PC to your phone via USB cable. An unlocked bootloader should not be required. See the Flashtool Guide if you need more help.

Please make sure to flash a firmware that corresponds to your Xperia Pro model (MK16i or MK16a). The firmwares seem to be cross-compatible between MK16i and MK16a versions, however, do not take this as a 100% fool-proof conclusion, since this has not been confirmed by Sony. The difference is usually in the baseband, so to be safe choose "exclude baseband" in Flashtool if you are flashing an incorrect firmware. In the case you flash a different baseband and your SIM card/mobile network is not working, then you can always re-flash the correct firmware/baseband.

Rooting, Bootloader Unlocking & Recovery

"Rooting" is the process of gaining administrative access to customise protected partitions on your phone, allowing near unlimited customisation capability (but also some security risks, so is not for novice users). Once rooted, you will gain access to a Superuser or SuperSU app which allows you to grant or deny applications special root permissions. For people using the latest Sony firmware, then the following exploit-based method is the easiest way to gain such access:

One Click Root (works on 4.1.B.0.587/.431/ 4.0.2.A.0.62 Sony firmwares)
