I want to install the new KitKat firmware. I still haven't received for my SGP 311 (Germany WiFi).

I was wondering if it's possible to install it by hand which also means I need to download it from somewhere.

Is this possible? Like in Samsung Galaxy S2 phones, we can flash the firmware via ODIN

Thanks

You can use Flashtool (which is Sony's version of the ODIN) and Ftf file. However, I failed to find a Kitkat FTF for the SGP311. Seems like no one made it.

However, you can flash the SGP312 firmware, I think. You just have to exclude something related to partition sizes. I can't remember exactly what it is right now.
