    Hello sir!
    I had a quick question!
    I went through many sites, and the process of flashing using flashtool didnt mention the need of bootloader to be unlocked! And so the first time I flashed JB the (Global version on your site) my phone’s battery starter to die over night, 8-7 hours of no usage with 100% charged and was still going out on me! And then I repaired the firmware using Sony PC companion! And still didnt work! And since then no matter how many times I flash JB be the global version or the Indian version, I seem to get the same problem again and again! Any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong? o_/)
