New Flashtool ( brings compatibility to all Xperia devices

Flashtool_0.9.19.1Flashtool developer Androxyde has updated the must-have utility for Xperia owners to build number The big feature in this latest version is that it supports all Xperia devices.

If you remember, the last Flashtool version ( brought support for the 2015 Sony Xperia devices. However, the method to flash devices was slightly different with a FSC (Flashtool Script) needed. Therefore, if you were using an older Xperia model (2014 series and older) it was recommended to use the prior Flashtool release (

Flashtool marries both prior versions together, so if no FSC is found, Flashtool will use the old method of flashing as seen in Flashtool


The latest version of Flashtool can be downloaded here. A word of caution on the installation, Androxyde mistakenly placed a couple of folders in the wrong location. This means you may not be able to open Flashtool. To solve this, navigate to the following folder: “C:\Flashtool\x10flasher_lib\winjre” where you will find two folders inside (winjre32 and winjre64). Place these two folders one level higher i.e. at “C:\Flashtool\x10flasher_lib”. It should be placed as can be seen in the picture below.

Update: A new version of Flashtool ( has been released that fixes the bug above.


Thanks Saper!

    how can i flash only a baseband now? :/

  • Matúš Livora

    Find and flash only baseband… Or exclude everything except baseband (maybe I am wrong because I haven’t used FT since may)

  • Matúš Livora

    Aww yeah … Sorry … I oversaw the word “now”

  • José Luís Andrade

    I installed the drivers for the Z1 Compact from FlashTool Drivers Pack, with windows in disable the Driver Signature Enforcement. But the result is that I can not flash my cell phone by FlashTool in Windows 10 (32 bits).

    Oh gosh… try to update via ota, failed after low space. after clear some application and try again, my xperia z got stuck in boot loop.
    try to let the battery dry, charge for 10%, power on, and still the problem exist.
    can this FT repair my problem, never use it before?

  • Vector Teh

    Did you turn on USB debugging on your phone?

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Flashing a new ftf file and wipe the data of the phone completely will get your Xperia z up and running in notime :)

  • There is no way to download firmwares from a Mac now that it uses XperiFirm, it fails at downloading the built-in version.

  • Trong Ky

    That is baseband option on new version of flashtool

  • Sandeep Simon

    I downloaded Flashtool from My Norton Security software removed the file as infected with Trojan.Gen2 virus. Is this your experience OR is the file structure of the tool such that it resembles a virus? Please advice if it is safe to use. My son cant remember password for his Sony Xperia C2503 and I am trying to reset the phone without losing his data. Thanks

    Click windows search, type “initial”, choose “advanced initialization options”, reboot, pick “disable driver signature imposition”. It worked nicely here. Good luck.
