I just packed up .73 Generic Singapore to an FTF, and Korumera was kind enough to host it in XDA Servers.

Download from: http://xdafileserver.nl/Sony%20(Ericsson)/

Filename: LT26i_6.0.A.3.73_SG_Generic.ftf
MD5: 9a58329f9d60ed7538d7c7ef9489e90e
Size: 498 MB (523,206,656 bytes)

NO ROOT REQUIRED, NO BOOTLOADER UNLOCK REQUIRED, WILL NOT VOID WARRANTY

You can flash this without losing any data!
If you uncheck the "wipe userdata" box in Flashtool before flashing, you will not lose any data. You can convert from any customization to this one without any problems!

To flash this, follow the following steps:
  1. For starters, make sure you have Flashtool installed. If you have issues with Flashtool, make sure you also have PC Companion or Sony Update Service installed.
  2. Download the .ftf file to your computer and place it in the Flashtool\Firmwares folder.
  3. Open Flashtool and click the lightning bolt in the menu bar.
  4. Select Flashmode and click OK
  5. Select the right firmware in the left column (LT26i_6.0.A.3.73_SG_Generic.ftf).
  6. Check or uncheck "Wipe User Data". If selected, all user data will be deleted. If you want to update or change customization without losing data, uncheck it.
  7. Click OK and wait for the instruction to unplug the device, ...
  8. Turn your phone OFF, and plug it in while keeping the volume down button pressed.
  9. Follow the steps in the main window of Flashtool, wait until the flashing is done.

I've tested this on my device and works fine.

Note: I'm providing this as it is and I'm not responsible if something goes wrong! Flash it at your own risk!!

Yes, but I would recommend to flash fully (without wipe of course) to avoid any incompatibility issues.

You can flash it on the boot loader unlocked phone as well. Shouldn't be an issue. But remember to flash the pre-rooted system.img file after that to regain the root.
