Xperia Flash Guide for flashtool

Flashtool is a flashing software that can be used to:
  • Flash original Images (Android 1.6, 2.1, 2.3 Images)
  • Root your phone
  • Install Recovery, Busybox, custom kernels
  • Clean your Rom (remove /system/apps apps of your choice) (Be careful, unless you really know what you do, do not modify the default list. This can make your phone stuck at the SE Logo)
  • Clear dalvik cache
  • Optimize (install of JIT v2) (Disabled in 0.4, will readd it as a plugin for 2.1 phones only)
  • Customize (installs apps found in the custom/apps folder of the flashtool)
  • Clean uninstalled (remove any references to system apps removed in the Clean (root needed) step)
  • Edit any text file on the device
  • Rebrand your device

(Official text from developer)

 Download linkAndroxyde flashtool under Installation tab

How does it work?

As you can see, there are several functions. Some of them work for all Xperias, some of them not. But there are two functions which work for every Xperia smartphone - firmware and kernel flashing. 

Something for the beginning:

  • downloaded .ftf files should be stored in flashtool folder . There's a folder called firmwares -> this is for .ftf files (C:\Flashtool\firmwares)
  • connect your Xperia only when flashtool wants it
  • ignore when flashtool says "Hold back button," buttons for connecting are specific for every smartphone (list below)
  • make a backup before flashing! Use MyPhoneExplorer, PC Companion, apps in your smartphone, whatever you want... 
  • if flashtool didn't flashed selected firmware, remove battery from your Xperia for five minutes a insert it back. Next connect should be working

Buttons for connection with flashtool:

  • Back: ARC (S), NEO (V), PRO, PLAY
  • Volume DOWN (-): MINI (pro), RAY, ACTIVE, Live with Walkman, Xperia P, Xperia S, Xperia T, Xperia U, Xperia V, Sola

Fastboot mode:
  • Menu: ARC (S), NEO (V), PRO
  • Search: PLAY
  • Volume UP (+): MINI (pro), RAY, ACTIVE, Live with Walkman, Xperia P, Xperia S, Xperia T, Xperia U, Xperia V, Sola

Firmware flashing

What do you need:

  • Androxyde flashtool installed (+ drivers for your phone)
  • Xperia smartphone
  • USB cable for your Xperia
  • .ftf file with firmware to flash

How to flash?

  1. Run flashtool and click on the flash button

  2. Choose "Flash mode", click "OK"

  3. From the list on the left select firmware for flashing - BE CAREFUL, if you choose bad firmware you should brick your Xperia!
  4. On the right side check "No final verification." If you want to delete your data, check both boxes with "Wipe.." If you want to flash only a part of firmware, use the "Exclude.." option in the middle. Don't use it if you don't know what are you doing!

  5. Click "OK" and wait for instructions to connect your phone

  6. Turn off your phone.
  7. Connect your Xperia while holding the button from the list above. Make sure you're using button which you should use! Don't forget you're in flashmode! When the window disappears, release the button.
  8. Wait until flashtool flashes your firmware. If there's not 100% in the progressbar, it's not done!
  9. Disconnect your Xperia and turn it on (or make some other changes you want)

 Kernel flashing

You can flash kernels with these extensions: .img, .elf or .sin. For flashing stock kernel use the guide above (for firmware flashing). Remember you need to download kernel file first. Kernels are NOT included in flashtool installation.

  1. Run flashtool.
  2. Turn off your phone.
  3. Connect your Xperia while holding the button for fastboot mode (from the list above)
  4. Click on the flash button. Choose "Fastboot mode", click "OK"

  5. On the right side click "Select kernel to Flash" and choose your kernel. Click "Open"

  6. Move the window right or left to see the log in flashtool window. If it says "OKAY" everything went good.

  7. Close the Fastboot Toolbox using button on the right, disconnect your Xperia and turn it on.

How-To Wipe with JL_Cmder Blackberry

Ok, I've seen alot of people lately using JL_Cmder to wipe the device, but some are having problems. So, heres a How-To on how to use JL_Cmder. I hope this helps a few people out.

1) DownloadJL_Cmder from the attached file below, unzip & install to the computer.

2) Now, go ahead and sync all of your info or back it up. If you DO NOT, you will lose it ALL, obviously because we are wiping the device.

3) If you do not have the latest version of the Desktop Manager, download it fromHERE
Also, make sure, that you have the OS you are wanting to install to the device, installed to your computer as well. 

4)Make sure the Vendor XML file is deleted if you are going to install a OS that is not from your carrier. The vendor XML file can be located by going toC:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\ResearchInMotion\Applo ader

5) Make sure the DM is closed and plug in BB to computer via USB 

6) Go to theJL_Cmderon your computer and double click it to start. Now, this may take a few tries to connect, so keep trying until it does.

7) On the first screen, Press any key to continue.

8) Now, if your device uses a password, enter it now. If not, press "N" 

9) Press 4 to initiate the WIPE 

10) Press "Y" to continue 

11) Now type "blackberry" to continue 

12) Now you will see a white screen with a'507' Error Don't worry, this is what you want! You are now ready to install the OS.

13) Open the DM

14) Select Apploader and step your way to the finish. After the OS is installed, it will take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to reboot the device. DO NOT UNPLUG THE DEVICE UNTIL THE APPLOADER SCREEN SAYS "THE LOADING OPERATION WAS SUCCESSFUL!!

15) Almost done. Now, with the DM still open go to the Main page and Select "Backup & Restore" and restore from the backup that was made before wiping.

That's it! You have now wiped your device withJL_Cmder
Make sure you follow the instructions, and you shouldn't have a problem. I hope this helps.

Below is a list of App Errors:

* 101 Internal JVM error.
* 102 Invalid code in file system. The .cod files in the handheld have been checked for modification and it has been determined that there is a problem with one or more .cod files.
* 103 The starting address for the boot .cod file cannot be found. This might mean that a boot .cod file has not been installed on the handheld, or that its format is invalid or corrupt.
* 104 An uncaught Java exception was thrown in the Java code and diagnosed by the JVM. Execution can be continued or the handheld can be attached to a debugger on a desktop through a serial or USB cable. The event log should contain the traceback of the thrown exception.
* 105 An OS file system API returned an error status for a certain operation. This can indicate a corrupt file system or an error in the JVM.
* 106 An error has been detected in the graphics system of the handheld.
* 107 Internal JVM error.
* 108 Internal JVM error.
* 109 Internal OS error.
* 110 Non-idle event downtime error. A problem has been detected in the accumulation of JVM down time that represents how long the JVM has been idle. This indicates an error in either the OS code or the JVM code.
* 200 Application manager threw an uncaught exception. The application manager event thread threw an uncaught exception and so cannot continue running.
* 201 Initialization of the cryptographic system failed and the handheld cannot continue to operate.
* 202 An attack on the key store has been detected, and the handheld cannot continue to operate.
* 203 The application manager console process, usually the Home screen ribbon, has failed, like due to an uncaught exception.
* 501 Internal error.
* 502 All processes exited. The last Java process has terminated, and there is nothing left to execute.
* 503 Internal error.
* 504 Internal error.
* 505 Internal error.
* 506 An uncaught Java exception was thrown in the initial VM Java thread thus killing the only live thread in the system. The event log contains the traceback for the exception.
* 507 A dependency on a .cod file could not be satisfied due to a missing .cod file. Load the missing .cod file onto the handheld.
* 508 Invalid object. A problem has been detected with a debugger command to the VM.
* 516 Error occurred during garbage collection, which might indicate a corrupted file system.
* 510 All threads are waiting on objects, which results in a deadlock. The system cannot recover from this state since no thread can release a lock.
* 511 A problem has occurred during debugging.
* 515 The reachable objects form a group that cannot be represented properly by the VM because there are too many objects or the total size of the objects is too large.
* 516 When committing a persistent object, the VM found that the persistent store id counter has reached its limit. The object was not committed.
* 517 An inconsistency has been detected in the VM persistent object store.
* 518 Internal error.
* 519 Internal error.
* 520 Internal error.
* 521 Indicates that Object.wait() has been executed by a thread that holds a lock on another object; occurs only in simulator if the JvmDebugWaits application switch.
* 522 A thread has acquired two locks on objects in an order that doesn’t match the order that previous locks for the two types were acquired, which indicates a future potential deadlock situation; reported only in the simulator when the JvmDebugLocks application switch is set.
* 523 A critical Java process has died and the device cannot continue to operate normally.
* 524 An object has been marked as recovered by the Low Memory Manager but it was not freed during a garbage collection. This is only checked in the simulator under the control of the JvmDebugLMM application switch.
* 525 Bad persistent object. An auto-commit operation during a garbage collection has detected a non-persistent object reachable from the persistent store root. The type of the object has been output into the event log.
* 526 The class definition for java.lang.Object cannot be found.
* 527 The class definition for java.lang.String cannot be found.
* 528 The file system is corrupted. Data on the handheld is unrecoverable.
* 529 The file system is corrupted. An attempt is going to be made to recover data, but some data might be lost.
* 530 Internal JVM error.
* 531 Flash memory has been exhausted.
* 532 A JVM assertion has been violated. This error can occur only in the simulator, not on an actual handheld.
