Thumbs up
@Envious_Data I've been away for a while but, this is a great idea m8. I also think; would it also be a good idea to 'link in' the rooting info (like creating a big data base)? Cause on a cursory glance through the Q&A thread there are tons of the same Q's being asked (especially on rooting .167 firmware. I did it in 4 steps without creating a rooted zip). It doesn't have to be fancy m8 just a thing like "Rooting info here " (Isn't a link, just text colour). Anyways good idea m8 (wish I'd thought of it lol)

How to Fix Noise Canceling
So from what ive tested this method hasnt failed me once.

Requirements:
Flashtool
How to use flashtool

Instructions:
1. Download a FTF of your choice which matches the rom of your choice.
2. Wipe your Data/Cache Via Recovery
Next couple parts will guide you through rooting for locked bootloader
3. flash pre-rooted 167 rom via recovery
(if recovery is installed)(if not downgrade to 314 root and install recovery
6. power off your device and flash the rest of the FTF (Exclude Data because it will wipe your internal storage )
7. From Recovery Flash your ROM of Choice
8. Noise Canceling Should still work, it has from my testing
Noise Canceling Does break when you flash another rom so you will have to go through this process again
This Guide only Applies to stock

So why does Sony only give that update to Taiwan? Not for all?
Btw: how can you feel/say 3.12 has better battery life?
