Download and make your own Firmware

Don't misread the title. This tutorial will help you download the needed FILE_xxxxxxxx so that FlashTool can decrypt them and create a bundle to flash.​

Requirements:

Steps:
First Download the needed programs and install Flashtool and its drivers. For extra explanation you can check my how to use flashtool tutorial. Download the XperiaFirmware Download tool (see link above) and unzip it.

Open it:

The .ftf file is in the same place as the FILE files.. So look up there and share the .ftf in the correct forum!

Good Luck!

I've always included the. Ta parts when flashing ftf's myself never has a problem(yet). I thought it was just Ta files of a different device that bricked your phone

    Good guide..just a correction
    When you create your bundler you only have to mark the .sin files, not the .ta(or something like that)
