so I got this working to a point, I renamed the H81XX fsc file to H8166_52.0.A.3.84.fsc but it stops the flash at varying points depending on connecting phone and running the flash, sometime it says script file not found and if I run again it just sits there

Tried renaming the flashscript file to 8166.fsc still not working - no script file

giving up for now, might start the whole thing from scratch as I had a powercut when downloading the xperifirm files - it continued after reboot but you never know, but still getting the script file error regardless, I have renamed it to many things but still get the error

So I got this to run eventually using the H81XX 51.1.fsc and renaming it 52.0.fsc - a lot of errors and warnings and the flashing failed, next I am thinking of trying the FSC file for the XZ2 52.0.fsc but I am a little worried about that, would be helpful if the author of flashtool kept the scripts up to date as new FW is released, a lot of hard work for it to be rendered useless for new FW - just saying

Dude, just stop whining. FlashTool is a free and open-source software maintained mostly by Androxyde itself. You want a proper .fsc script for your device? Then, instead of complaining and complaining, go take a backup of your phone's data and record a USB log while doing a software repair through Xperia Companion (there's a step by step guide on how to do that in FlashTool's website, which I assume you didn't bother to visit), then parse that USB log using the built-in function in FlashTool to get a fresh .fsc compatible with the new firmware and share it with other users, even better, open a Pull Request in FlashTool's Device Database repository on GitHub so it can be integrated on the official database and everyone can use it.

Those scripts are created based on communication done between the phone and official Sony software during firmware restores/updates, demanding the maintainers of FlashTool to always have updated scripts ready whenever a new major firmware version is released for every supported Xperia phone (taking into account you need a physical device to record the USB log) is a bit too much, don't you think? -- just saying ;)

I do understand what you say and I was trying not to be too critical of the of the developers who put hours and hours of work in to help others, I ended up using the other "newflash tool" and ended up in a bootloop, Xxeria companion was able to repair and get my phone working again but only after wiping all my data, I do have backup but it doesn't restore everything I need, my previous Phone a Z1 was rooted and I could pretty much backup everything various ways, but this new phone is not rooted and provides limited options, I should have waited for the OTA but I wanted to load my phone with a different region FW so I went ahead, some of this was my fault for not getting into folders and transferring some stuff were possible to my external SD Card but those options are limited

anyway I am were I am and cannot do much about it

I'm trying to make fsc for Xperia L3 (later maybe Xperia 1). Howevere I have problem that Simple Logger doesn't see the device... No reaction when it's connected or the connection option is changed to File Transfer (for Xperia Companion).

Is there any other method to create the fsc? Something changed and I don't know about it?

EDIT: Same thing with Xperia 1. Logger doesn't seem to see that device is connected...

Mac requirements?

What are the system requirements for the Mac version? I downloaded the current version 0.9.28.0 from the flashtool.net website (via Uploaded.to link) and the .dmg disk image doesn't open on my Mac. Error: "No mountable file systems"

My Mac is running OS X 10.11 El Capitan. So I had it extracted on another Mac running 10.13 High Sierra. The disk image mounted there and the app could be copied over to my Mac. But the app doesn't launch. I bounces a few times in the dock and then just quits without any message. Edit: it leaves a crash report in the system log. I can attach it if that helps.

Strangely, even though the disk image is labeled as 0.9.28, the version on the app inside is 0.9.10, see screenshot. Whats happening? Did the wrong app get packed in the download?

    [TOOL] [UPDATE 21/12/2016] Flashtool version 0.9.23.0 - Windows / Linux / Mac

    Hi,

    I will take the lead on releases of this tool as Bin4ry will have less time to work on it.

    For all flashtool informations (download links, changelog, screenshot gallery, FAQ, Firmwares repository) go to the Flashtool Homepage

    Flashtool sources are on github : Androxyde repositories

    WARNING : Since Xperia Z, sony added a new set of files I called bootbundle. Those files can be bundled from 0.9.13 and can be flashed from 0.9.13 only. To all those flashing devices from Z edition to all after Z, it is highly advised to use 0.9.13 and to be sure FTF you flash contain the bootbundle set. I've been reported of hard bricks because of missing such set of files from bundles.

    I WANT TO GET YOUR ATTENTION ABOUT THE LATEST BRANCH 0.9.19. Without FSC, the tool will by default include simlock.ta if this file is present in the FTF. The result will be a bricked phone
    As a workaround, until I release a patch, please please tick the exlude simlock.ta if you see it in the list.
    0.9.19.6 fixes the simlock.ta issue. This file is by default excluded. Then it will not be flashed until you explicitely untick the exlcude simlock box. Do it at your own risk.

    Regards
    Androxyde

    A new version of Flashtool will be released very soon with support for XZPremium, XZ1 and XZ1 compact

    This release will move from java8 to java9. As a consequence, Flashtool will not run on 32bits OS platforms as java9 is 64bits only

    Hello all :)

    Here is a beta version of FT (0.9.17.1)
    Here is a beta version of FT (0.9.17.2)

    This release can normally root latest devices (towelroot implemented)

    This release has a new feature : Check Devices -> Check update. Choose a device and you will have a table of CDF. Double click on one of them it will check release. Double click again once release is fetched and FT will download / decrypt and create FTF from files downloaded from sony servers :)

    Feel free to report if you find bugs.
    PS : This update applies only on release 0.9.16.1 or 0.9.17.1

    (Beta.zip as attachement to this post)
