I am trying to flash the generic UK rom on my Xperia Z using flashtool but it gets stuck at 0%, It doesn't even flash anything the phone stays intact. Does anyone know how to sort this?
I found out that i was not using the Beta5 version which is the one indicated for the Xperia Z and now im facing a different problem,
The phone doesn't stay in flashmode for more than some 30 seconds, then it disconnects and boots normally and i still can't flash the phone.
Yes it is, it happens for all xperia models
Ll give you the idea
1. Install flashtool beta 5
2. Install Xperia Z flashmode and fastboot drivers from drivers folder of flashtool installation directory
3. Copy the ftf to firmwares folder
4. Don't connect the phone, now flash the ftf and wait till it prepares the files for flashing (believe me this WILL take a while)
5. Now when it asks to connect after preparing, switch off the device and connect by pressing the volume down button
6. Now it starts! Solved?
Press THANKS if I helped!

Thank you for that guide
I followed your steps but the same happens, phone disconnects from flashmode to boot normally. I even tried using a Windows 7 pc but same issue.
However, if I use SUS phone remains connected and the process runs well. If i connect with flashtool (or without any programme at all) it will disconnect after some seconds,
I did all you suggested but in the end i get always the same result, phone disconnects from flashboot shortly after connecting, eccept inside Sony Update Service or PC Companion.
I unistalled all the drivers, even Sony's apps a reinstalled PC companion to install the drivers again. I used another pc with Windows 7 32bits and I get the same behavior, disconnects from flashmode in about 30 seconds.
I'm starting to think that there's someting wrong with the phone itself, which i hope not.
Where do you see the percentage when flashing?
I made a tutorial on HOW TO FLASH STOCK ROMs WITH FLASHTOOL and I don't see the percentage. It justs tells me that flashing is complete.
