Hello friends,

I'm currently use a Sony Xperia Z1 with the iHackers 3.0 ROM and kernel.
Also I've rooted my phone and have an unlocked boodloader.

My question: Can i return to an original Sony ROM and kernel with updates from Sony?
When yes, how?


With kind regards,

Flashbot

Stock firmware will flash stock kernel.
If you have to backup you can also lock bootloader.
And yes, after that you can install anything from PCC

I have a question related to this topic.

I had Doomlord`s custom kernel v21 with root and unlocked bootloader.
Im trying to revert back to stock rom and kernel via flashtool and generic nordic rom.

Flashing goes alright but after flashing when i try update my phone either OTA or trough pc companion they both failed.
pc companion says that i have modified sony and i guess it same with OTA update.

Should i do something also, because i thought flashing with stock rom should revert all but bootoader back to original.


Thanks in advance.

You cannot use OTA or Pccompanion with an unlocked bootloader,

You should flash the latest version FTF using flashtool
