[GUIDE] How To Flash Stock Firmware or .ftf File Manually

Instructions –

• I’m not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards.
• Flashing stock firmware or .ftf file doesn’t need ROOT.
• Make a backup of important data (contacts, messages etc. ).
• This guide will work with Locked as well as unLocked boot loader.

Requirements –

• Xperia M SS or DS
• Flash Tool for windows
• ADB and Fast boot drivers
• Desire firmware

Steps -

1. Download and Install the flash tool. The default directory of installation of flash tool will be C:\Flashtool.


2. Go to C:\Flashtool\drivers and install the Flash mode and Fast boot drivers.


3. Browse and download your desire firmware. There are so many links in this thread. For our convenience create a folder in flash tool folder and named it Source like this C:\Flashtool\Source. Put the downloaded ftf in this folder.


4. Now Open Flash Tool. See the “Black Lightning icon” at the top left corner. Click on it.

7. See the right hand side of window under the “Wipe” tag, all three options are checked if, will delete all user data. So if you don’t want to delete all user user data and don’t want a factory reset then you should uncheck them. Click on “Flash” button.

I am updating my C1905 to the latest official 4.3.
Is it stupid to not wipe data when flashing the 4.3 FTF?
I m just bored when it comes to setting up the phone again.
N.

EDIT
Not a good idea.SU problems,FCs,Framework mods not working etc.
It s better to WIPE everything before flashing.

I have created below a tutorial for newbie’s to let them teach how to flash Xperia ftf using Flash Tool Manually

Step 1 - Download FlashTool

Download - flashtool-0.9.13.0-windows.exe

Please remove this mirror for FlashTool and provide a link directly to the Flash
Tool thread.

It is not polite to share a mirror of another developers work :( use the downloads provide by the developer.
