Re: [GUIDE][18th Dec][4Noobs] Flashing A FTF File Using Flashtool

I think its because the other guides are things people use more and don't know how to do while flashing ftf is easier to figure out by yourself. But I've used a couple of you're other guides and they helped a lot. :thumbup:

Yes I totally agree with abdel12345 your guides are well laid out and not too complicated some times people over explain things and this can complicate things especially if your new to android.That's why I have put a link to your tutorials in my signature because unfortunately some people forget to use the search feature lol

xperia play!! relock bootloader first then flash factory ROM(.FTF file)?

>

Thanks fma965 for your tutorials specially the one how to unlock xperia play bootloader. I mean is I want to go back to stock ROM make a clean and sure backup of it via CWM and then go to CM9.1.0 again on my play now my device is rooted and CWM installed and have no backup of Stock ROM( in case I want to give this device to someone with factory ROM look). Ur tutorial of flashing FTF did not work with me? MY question should relock bootloader then flash FTF file to restore stock ROM? Please explain in some steps when you have time thanks.
