Two of the most essential utilities for any Sony Xperia owner are Flashtool and XperiFirm. The combination of both of these tools allows any user to download, install and check firmware for any region and any variant of Sony Xperia device. The good news is that XperiFirm has now been integrated into the latest release of Flashtool.
Whilst the build number has not changed, the re-release of Flashtool version 0.9.18.5 includes an XperiFirm button that launches the program. It also means users now don’t have to manually delete the fwinfo.xml file that was causing errors when creating FTF firmware files. You can download the latest release over at the Flashtool website.
