    • Bro you need to download and install adb drivers prior starting and for first time connection you need internet so that the drivers are downloaded by flash tools after that flash that ftf, it will roughly take 1 and half hour.

  36. bitz says:

    hi,my Xperia C is on 2.14.J.0.68.. I tried to follow the “PROCEDURE 2 FOR S1 Boot Version is 2.14.J.0.68” step-by-step and still find myself either stuck/confused after “step 6”. At this point,should my phone be off and then connect it while in “flash mode” (hold down – volume key then plug the usb in)? <– Super Flash then cannot detect my phone if I do this. Or should I leave it on? (when I connect it while it's gets detected but in "normal mode") I already have all the things I know and can't wait to get this done. Any reply will be much appreciated. If you feel like I'm missing something,or you have any suggestion on what I can try,please let me know. I'm kinda frustrated as I've been trying this the whole day (not the new into these kind of stuff).

    Thanks guys,looking forward for your responses
