I got this G8232 as Gift from my USA's cousin which has disable fingerprint manager by default. This issue make me sick. I want it back by flash my phone to global firmware. But problem:

1. Flashtool newest version have no G8232 in device list. Okay if you stuck at this here is trick:
Download Device update for flastool here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/xzs/how-to/flashtool-devices-update-t3601722
- Extract you will have folder G82xx
Open flashtool (newest version) wait until it loaded all script you will see there are only 94 device loaded
see pic:

how do you upload pictures

- Copy folder: G82xx to %userprofile%\.flashTool\devices (copy this to "RUN")
- Back to opening flashtool click: Device - Manage - Import. You will have 95 devices imported with notice:
"06/039/2017 21:39:25 - INFO - Loading devices database
06/039/2017 21:39:25 - INFO - Loaded 95 devices"

how do you upload pictures

2. All done ! Go ahead make your own ftf firmware by xperifirm and flash your phone.

3. While flashing you may got notice:
06/040/2017 21:40:46 - INFO - No matching loader found
06/040/2017 21:40:46 - WARN - No loader found or set manually. Skipping loader

And flashtool will popup using 41.fsc click YES then all go through.... (if not restart your PC reinstall flashtool drivers and restart over again)

Thanks, which FW did you use?

Thanks for the quick and easy guide. Very helpful and I have successfully created an FTF file as a test. Just curious which firmware you used? I'm looking for something that has as little bloat as possible but understand each variant will come with some.

Example, did you use the customized SG, HK, etc. release?

Thanks in advance!

Hi guys. I have a question. So I have the US dual sim version as well. If I flash to global firmware do I lose my DRM keys for the camera?

Basically all I want to do is use global firmware to get fingerprint reader working. I don't really care for rooting it. I want to keep my camera DRM working. I tried reading a guide but it only shows me how to root. But I don't want to root.

How to video

I made a how to video a few weeks back on how to activate the fingerprint sensor.
I was having issues like the ones mentioned above and after several failed attempts I figured out what worked
This damn thing doesn't let me post links so just Google how to activate the fingerprint sensor on the Xperia xzs or just search for my channel using my username on YouTube
