Just got new Xperia 1 from o2 try flashing to general retailers firmware, but flashtool and newflasher both not work

Newflasher doesn't work for me either.

Are you getting any error messageson NewFlasher?

Mines also from O2 UK and I'm trying to flash generic firmware.

I'm guessing we need a FSC Script for flashtool.

yes,the bootloader allowed unlock

With the earlier Xperia phones you needed to unlock the bootloader before flashing (that you are allowed to unlock doesn't mean that your bootloader is unlocked). To unlock you need the script and the code from Sony. At the moment I don't remember where to get both (script and code). And what about DRM-keys?, is it there a TA-partition to backup before unlocking? And so on...

Never needed to unlock bootloader to flash stock firmware with Flashtool or Newflasher

J8110 passed test ,thank you body,sometime was shown erro 997, just unplug and do again,thank you!!!!!

How did you use the 2 files in the patch? Just copied them to Newflasher folder and run the whole process with the new .exe file?
How many times did you get error 997? Did you redo the whole process from the beginning or did you just unplug and replug the phone while the process was running?
Thnx

Did anyone check the new version of Newflasher on Xperia 1?

Hi, it seems work, see 2 comments before end of comments -> https://github.com/munjeni/newflasher/issues/6

Noelex confirm that newflasher working. I have included all patches including on from noelex. Only which might not work (I'm believing it will work) is partition folder flashing, if you flash it please post newlfasher log (post it in neflasher thread), I need to be sure everything is right!

Hello guys,
I managed to flash my new Xperia 1 to Customized UK and EE UK firmware without problems. I didnt delete anything like .ta files etc. I just copied newflasher files to Firmware Folder, downloaded from XperiFirm and run Newflasher.exe in flash mode.
Vodafone UK carrier lock still exists after flashing though!
I am trying to get an unlock code for this from a seemingly legit site. (fingers crossed)

Can you point me to which USB drivers you used? I can't for the life of me get my PC, to recognize the phone in flash mode.

Download Flashtool, install it, then go to folder c:\\flashtool\drivers and install driver package, checking the first two options, flashtool and fastboot drivers. Then your mobile will be discoverable in flash mode. Shut down your phone and while turned off, keep volume down button pressed while connecting usb cable, till green light shows up
