All Sony Ericsson HOW TO FLASH STOCK ROMs WITH FLASHTOOL Guide 100% Working

I would like to thank Androxyde for the FlashTool

***BEFORE YOU FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE INSTALLED SONY PC COMPANION ON YOUR PC***

HOW TO FLASH STOCK FIRMWARE (.FTF/ROM) ON YOUR XPERIA

1: First of all you need to make sure you download the LATEST Flashtool from Here
If it is your first time for your phone on the PC, install the flashmode driver, and then get the HW detection to work. Eg, install the driver, then turn off your phone, and then hold down the Down volume button and plug it in – windows will then go into hw detection and install the driver for the phone. It will try to check online, so skip that, and it will install the proper driver you just locally installed.

Thanks to Mobe1969 from the Whirlpool forum
NOTE: Been seeing people having problems flashing stock .253 based ROMs. Thanks to gm007 for suggesting to use the beta4 version of FlashTool if flashing stock .253 ROMs. You can download beta4 version from here

PART 2: Driver installation in Windows 8
Okay since people are having trouble installing drivers for the Xperia Z in Windows 8. I made a tutorial on how to install the Xperia Z driver using the FlashTool in Windows 8.

As shown in the picture below when you try to install the drivers for the Xperia Z in Windows 8 for the first time this is what happens:


As you can see the drivers didn't install:


So here are the steps to install the drivers:

Step 1: Go to "Settings" (if you don't know how to do this, place your mouse pointer in the upper right corner or bottom right corner of your screen and the sidebar should pop out as shown in the picture below):


Step 2: Click on "Change PC settings" as shown in the picture below:


Step 3: When you get to this screen, scroll down to "Advanced start-up" and click the "Restart now" tab. See picture below:


Step 4: When your PC restarts and goes to this screen click on "Troubleshoot" as shown in the picture below:


Step 5: Now click on "Advanced options" as shown in the picture below:


Step 6: Now click on "Start-up Settings" as shown in the picture below:


Step 7: When you get to this screen, click on the "Restart" tab as shown in the picture below:


Step 8: Okay when you get to this screen just hit the "F7" on your keyboard:


Step 9: Now go and reinstall the driver for the Xperia Z. When you get this pop-up window, please select "Install this driver software anyway" as shown in the picture below:


The process will look like this:
