Does anyone have a flashable zip of the stock ROM for the Z1S? I must have flashed a bad zip or something because I'm boot looping and I was stupid and didn't make a backup.

Yeah, I do know that's an option but I wanted to avoid wiping my internal memory if at all possible. Thanks for the tip though!

Flash a stock FTF and just untick the wipe data option then...

Or back it up first....

Oh duh. For some reason I was on the line of thinking of ODIN where that wasn't option. I'm a little new to the Sony flash tool. Thanks for your help.

Its not the sony flash tool, that is called EMMA and only works with unlocked bootloaders

Use the original flashtool from

flashtool.net

It was developed here on xda and works with all xperia devices regardless of bootloader status
