How to Create an FTF file of Your Xperia Firmware (credit to Vijay's Tech Encounters)

What you Need to Create an ftf File:

Sony PC Companion or SEUS
Flashtool and its updates if any.
Internet connection
Xperia phone of course.

Warning and Disclaimer: Take a backup of all important data like contacts, call logs, SMSs, apps, APN and other settings before proceeding further. You may have to perform a clean install of your OS. While for all practical purposes, using Flashtool is safe but there is a very very remote chance of damaging your phone. You've been warned.

1. Install Sony PC Companion and/or SEUS. This will copy the necessary drivers to your PC. Connect your phone with USB Debugging enabled and allow your PC to install the necessary drivers.

2. Connect your phone and update or repair your phone with the latest firmware version. If you update/upgrade, your data will be preserved. If you repair, all data may be lost. So backup everything. Now, your phone is updated with the latest firmware. Keep put aside. We don’t need your phone anymore to create the ftf file.

3. Go to C:\ProgramData\Sony Ericsson\Update Engine\db\13740270\blob_fs folder and look for the biggest three files. The folder “blob_fs” may be located in a different place depending on whether you used PC Companion or SEUS. Perform a search for that folder if you can’t find it. Once you are inside the folder, sort by size and see the 3 largest files were just created (when you updated/repaired your phone). Copy them to somewhere else like C:\firmware.

4. Install Flashtool and open it.

5. Click Advanced > Decrypt Files.

6. Select all the two files and click the right arrow to send them to the right side and click OK. In a moment, you will see a Flashtool pop up window that shows all the decrypted files. Select all the files except the simlock.ta and partition-image.sin files as those are not needed and can cause flashing issues sometimes. Click the right arrow button.

7. Type in the device model next to Device (ie LT28i, LT28at, LT28h), firmware version number next to Version (not android version), and branding next to Branding (For branding if it is not a carrier branded device use Generic or the customization number of the device) and click OK.

8. In the Device Selection window that appears, select your phone model and click OK.

In a moment, your ftf file will be there in the default Flashtool folder C:\Flashtool\Firmwares ready to flash.

If you are going to upload the firmware for people please zip the file first before uploading.

I have the ICS 6.0.C.1.357 for ATT (not official yet) installed in my ION and I want to backup the firmware from the phone but I can't boot in recovery using fastboot (I have tried with recovery-nozomi.img for xperia S).
Is there another way to backup the firmware and create a ftf?

Not that I know of. Where did you get the .357 build from and how did you load it on your phone? If you have the files from that we might be able to do it.

I did an update using sony companion because my phone can get testing versions so I do not have any file.
I want to root it but and I do not want to lose the ICS that is installed.
I think that there is a trick to get the firmware from the sony companion update but I have to come back to a previous version. I do not know if I flash one of the stock version that you uploaded then I will be able to get the update again and get the firmware (which is the goal).
By the way my phone's bootloader is unlock.

And you have the lt28at? Did you get the phone from somewhere "special" and you are saying its ICS? Can you take a screenshot of your about phone page and stuff and post it.

I always get the files to make a ftf from the Sony ericcson-> update service-> db-> blob_fs folder using the two biggest files in the there.

Surprised to see you say its ics when it is only now going into testing with at&t and typically Sony doesn't put out testing version through the commercial software.

ICS!!

Wow! That is very exciting! Not only do you have ICS 4.0.4 but you have an unlocked bootloader. Definitely a phone we would want a developer to take a look at. Glad you came to XDA :D

Do you have flashtool installed? It will make it much simpler.

1. Install Flashtool
2. Go to Advance->Decrypt Files
3. Choose the folder of the PC Companion
For me, it is C:\ProgramData\Sony Ericsson\Update Engine\db\13740270\blob_fs
4. Select the three files that begins with "FILE_"
5. After finishing decrypting the files, select everything in the folddr list. Enter device as LT28at, version 6.1.C.0.357, Branding ATT, and disable final verification.
6. The generated package will be under the firmware folder in the Flashtool folder

Here is the latest FTF for LT28i (Still at 2.3.7).

Seems smoother than the previous version.

You don't need all three files just the two biggest files. Also when making the FTF do not include the simlock.ta and partition-image files. Those are not needed and sometimes can give people flashing issues.

Is that an official released firmware or do you also get test firmwares? I have the .72 LT28i firmware loaded and I'm not getting an update notification and SUS is saying I have the latest firmware.

I'm uploading the ftf file.

I don't think that this is an official version but for me is working without issues so far.

    Dude many people have reported att stating the update will be after the generic firmware is out

    Sent from my LT28i using Tapatalk 2

    Don't get flustered over one persons opinion there has been mixed reviews all over the net about if Well get it or not. Even something about a lawsuit for failure to release updates in a timely manner

    Sent from my LT28at using xda app-developers app

    It's not my opinion...I get my info from a very reputable person who is directly involved with the carrier relationship. I don't put any stock into what a retail clerk/manager or customer service rep on the phone says. They often times have no clue what they are talking about and aren't privy to the behind the scenes.

    I check almost every week to see if there is any change with AT&T's plan hoping they will release it but it doesn't change. The LT28i firmware will be what we will use if we want JB. Don't believe me or think its is just my opinion? That's fine whatever floats your boat. I only share what info I get and it has prove reliable in the past. Enjoy your ion, I'll move along now.
