I asked developer @[NUT] for helping E3 users to make a CWM Installer. He is expert at building CWM Installer for a lot of Xperia models and many more good tools.

You can't flash ftf without pc 💻 so you can't flash firmware update without a pc. All you can do is try to make cwm flashable file from ftf.
