Ok, I'll add the stock firmware .FTF later

EDIT: It flashes successfully via fastboot on my Xperia S so I don't think anything is wrong
But I can't test it because it wont boot on my XS of course

EDIT: Added original firmware ftf on XDA Fileserver

What does this have to do with a prerooted system.img?

And I uploaded a v2 Removed some bloatware

I don't know if you have seen it but I added a download link for "Flashtool with Xperia U support"

And I'm talking with someone who has an unlocked Xperia U, when he wants to flash it fastboot says "remote download size too large"

Don't know if it will work for you, but it's a pretty weird error since the system partition should be big enough
