Hello!

I just downloaded this latest firmware using the Sony PC Companion, decrypted and used Flashtool beta to repackage it to FTF. Tried it on my own Sony Xperia Z and everything works great!

Please use the Tutorial on how to flash the Stock FTF ROM using Flashtool

Download the two files from Dev-Host and use WinRAR to join them together. Just unzip both files in the same folder and let WinRAR do its thing.
File #1: http://d-h.st/F2n (WinRAR Archive 237 MB)
File #2: http://d-h.st/Ebf (WinRAR Archive 512 MB)

Some things to note;

- You do not have to be rooted to flash this with Flashtool
- You can flash this with either a locked or unlocked bootloader
- Your Xperia Z's bootloader stays unlocked thus keeping the Bravia Engine
- Customization code for this firmware is 1271-0119_R5B


Hope this helps out people who are looking for the Generic US ROM to flash on their Xperia Z. :)

I would appreciate a Thanks if this post was useful to you.

Enjoy!

Big oops! I apologize for not putting the second file. I fell asleep just after I posted this last night. :)

Unzip both files to the same folder and use WinRAR to join them together and make the FTF file.

Thanks!

Still these files unable to extract......
WinRAR > Unknown format or Damage
7-zip > cannot open file as archive
7-Zip does not support spanned ZIP files (.zip, .z01, .z02, ...), but WinRAR should work fine. Perhaps you have a corrupted download? Check if the file sizes (in bytes) and/or MD5 sums match:

Xperia_Z_C6602_10.3.A.0.423_Generic US.z01
536870912 bytes
MD5: 1dcf1a767c9f92993143746b82f84e4f

Yes, I checked them last night. I even tried it here on my work computer and everything went through. Make sure both the Xperia_Z_C6602_10.3.A.0.423_Generic US.zip and the Xperia_Z_C6602_10.3.A.0.423_Generic US.z01 files are on the same folder. Have WinRAR open the Zip file and extract! WinRAR should be able to know what to do. Try it out again!

I download "Xperia_Z_C6602_10.3.A.0.423_Generic US.z01" via IDM when it start to download .z01 file change format to .zip
i don't it s converting or just find compatible software and show

problem is here >
when i try to extract smaller part it asks for .z01 part and winRAR cannot find another file !!!

and when i select that converted (.zip of bigger file) > Error; file corrupted !

maybe i should uninstall WinRAR and all app that support .zip and ... and then download it :D

IDM does not convert anything, it just changes the filename extension to .zip because it recognizes a ZIP file. To extract this archive successfully, the filename extensions may not be changed, so disable IDM or change it back to .z01 after downloading.
