***Xperia Miro (Mesona) - ST23i/a Official Firmware Files***




So, these are official Sony's firmware files for Xperia Miro. This is Sony's factory rom. These can be useful to unbrick your phone, return to stock, cook roms, update firmware, debrand your phone...and so on
These firmwares are generic. That means they are global - international - anyone from any country could flash them

Please remember that there is small chance of bricking your device - Flashing your mobile phone is fully on your own risk and I do not take responsibility for anything happened!

FAQ

- Are these firmwares branded? - No. Branded means they are edited by network operators.
- Are these rooted? - No and these are not modded at all I haven't touched a thing (Sony original).
- Can I flash this on another phone that is similar to Miro? - No!
- Can I flash this on SIM-Locked phone. - Yes.
- Can I flash this on both Locked/Unlocked bootloaders. - Yes.
- Will this change bootloader or SIM Lock status. - No.

Thanks:

Jozinek - For 11.0.A.2.10 ftf source.
xperia_pro - For ST23a firmware.
elhackermlxp - For ST23a firmware.
Droid.Riz - For mirroring my links.
tatatutu - For uploading ftf to yandex.



Android 4.0.4 - Ice Cream Sandwich

Differences between ST23a and ST23i are different 3G frequencies. ST23a are phones usually bought in American Continent (I think north of America).
And ST23i is usually bought in Europe and other parts of the world.

It is reported that if you flash one version on another everything will work, but maybe some bugs or warranty or something will be bothering you.



ST23i

11.0.A.2.10 - Link HERE

11.0.A.5.5 - Link HERE


ST23a

11.0.A.2.10 - Link HERE

11.0.A.5.8 - Link HERE

How gain superuser access (How to root your phone)

- Works for both bootloaders.
- Enable USB Debugging and Unknown sources.
- Must have PC Companion installed for drivers (if does not work try with C://flashtool/drivers).

1. You must be on 11.0.A.2.10 firmware.
2. Visit THIS thread.
- 1 Download program from that thread
- 2 Plug your phone
- 3 Open it
- 4 Choose Option 1
3. Visit this thread to update to newer firmware. (If you did not unlock your bootloader then simply accept OTA update).

Custom roms will include root.
Also when cwm will be avalaible (with CM10?) we may could install root via cwm
