1.First you need to download these 4 files

2.Extract ftf extractor anywhere you like

3.Open the *FTF file with 7Zip
You'll see these files and folders
Code:
META-INF
adsp.sin
amss.sin
amss_fs_urushi.sin
apps_log.sin
cache.sin
fota0.sin
fota1.sin
kernel.sin
loader.sin
system.sin
userdata.sin

4
.Extract system.sin to the folder where you extraxt ftf-extractor.

5.Press SHIFT+RIGHT CLICK on the empty space of the folder.You'll see a dialog like this


6.select OPEN COMMAND WINDOW HERE

7.Type
Code:
aIUP.exe system.sin 4096 system

hi thanks for your work.
will try it out.
sorry i clicked "thanks" button but reached the daily limit

Hi, tried it but wasnt able to extract using all the possible page sizes. must be something wrong with what i'm doing.
Alternatively, i pulled the system folder from the phone, then added the system files to the rooted zip file.
i was able to flash the resulting zip file... but i only got a bootloop

@OP: can you remove "FOR ALL XPERIA PHONES" from thread title? Since this doesn't work for all xperias, like Arc S and Neo V.

Extracted .587 ftf, work only with 2048 compression.

Anyway, do you know how to save more space for /data or /vendor partition? Usually when flash, /vendor or /data/idd is created and leave some unuse space there.
