Default [Q] Problem with FlashTool

Can someone help me, I just tried to update my xperia z1 c6903 to the new 108.ftf firmware, but when I ran FlashTool v0.9.16.1 I get the following.
After loading firmware and connecting mobile:

02/009/2014 14:09:23 - ERROR - Processing of loader.sin finished with errors.
02/009/2014 14:09:23 - INFO - Ending flash session
02/009/2014 14:09:23 - ERROR - S1 Header checksum Error
02/009/2014 14:09:23 - ERROR - Error flashing. Aborted
02/009/2014 14:09:26 - INFO - Device disconnected

This has got me stumped as everything worked normal the last update. My laptop OS is Linux but should not be a problem as there is FlashTools for it and nothing has changed except possibly FlashTool may have updated.

Also in Flashtools update for c6903 it shows there is a 108 firmware for Customised AU, how can I get this as Sony's program is only for windows no linux version.

Thanks for replying, I tried that and also used a ftf that I used before (last version 757?) got the same results. I have a feeling it may be the flashtool version I'm running, but being Linux I can't remember what version I was running before.

If you are on the latest version it should be fine, but you can re install it
