Ion LT28i is it having same bugs like XS JB .211 ?
yes you can
No update in Malaysia, Indonesia yet Ion JB .21 🙁

sir no update till now,my pc companion version is 2.10.165(production 30) and sus version is 188.8.131.52306141231 .I am from vizag andhrapradesh india.how to get update
Where can one get the ftf file for LT28i. g
LT28i not available yet.
you flash the LT28h ftf file on your LT28i, then you will loose the LTE from your phone. And it will show the “LT28h” in about phone section.
Hi everyone, Xperia Ion user here.
I have the LT28i version of the Ion which is the LTE phone.
Can I flash the LT28h ftf using the flashtool? Is it doable or will it be bricked?
Can’t find the LT28i ftf anywhere yet. Only the LT28h
It’s allowable…if you flash the LT28h ftf file on your LT28i, then you will loose the LTE from your phone. And it will show the “LT28h” in about phone section.
folks pls help me out… when i connect my phone in flash mode it says that Drivers need to be installed for connected device. what to do? i installed xperia s for ics driver… pls help me out pls
Updated and Lost LTE function. I guess I screwed up. Wonder if I can get it back?
Nothing is screwed. The facts is Sony has not rolled out yet Jelly Bean for Xperia Ion LT28i yet which is LTE supported.
JB .211 has been released for LT28h only which is HSPA+ version only, so its natural if you flash the software from LT28h you will loose LTE function.
You can exclude the Baseband on the flashtool and i think that way you can still use LTE.
Dose it support arabic language ?
Ive tried using sony PC companion version 210.165 rev30, and it still said that may phone is updated to the latest firmware 4.0.4?
I have also tried the phones update center ,and the new 4.1 update isn’t there either, I’m not sure if the update isn’t out in Australia yet or what?
Hey its not available in india.I have checked on pc companion(LT-28h my phone model)
Yeap I update it with flash tool this is more than awesome Im working with my LT28h Xperia Ion there is no lag and also my battry is not draining any more! it wasn available with pc campanian Im in Iran
I want to flash my Xperia Ion (LT28h , Android 4.0.4, Build Number 6.1.E.3.7)) to install JB 4.1.1. I have some queries
1. Is it possible to take backup of My Xperia Ion’s default firmware before flashing it.?
2. If possible could you please share the details.
3. Also if this flashing fails can we use this backup firmware to restored to the phone ?
4. I believe flashing will not unlock my boot loader( will not root the phone).. Is it a correct assumption ?
5. Whether I will be able to update the official releases if I flash my phone
#1 – Yes, If you have updated your device earlier via PCC or SUS, you can back up whole ftf of ICS 4.0.4. ( As files are saved in PC. )
#2 – Yes it is possible, check here how to do – http:// talk.sonymobile.com/thread/35239
#3 – Yes you can restore, Flashing won’t fail.
#4 – Flashing Will not unlock bootloader. Unlocking bootloader is another different process.
#5 – Yes you will be able to get official updates in future.
hi, i want to flash my xperia Ion LT28h but I was confused as you mentioned that flashing won’t unlocked my bootloader but in the tutorial it says that It is MANDATORY TO HAVE UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER before I can flash my phone.
Yes you can go ahead with locked bootloader also…now unlocking bootloader is not required…
ok. thank you so much. appreciate your prompt response.
Do report back after you have flashed ftf…
Xperia Ion is not on the list. please assist…
download this flashtool – http://www. mediafire.com/download/atxkg1ab6d5bw8o/flashtool-0.9.10.2beta6-windows.exe and try again.
That is what I’m using right now and when I open the Flashtool there’s nothing on it. I mean I’m getting a blank page. I tried to uninstall and install it but it’s just the same. Please help.
I have an unlocked AT&T Sony Xperia LT28at phone, can I update it with the firmware for LT28i?
Actually the firmware is officially released for LT28h only…LT28i has not got any update yet…
Check this – https://www.gizmobolt.com/2013/07/09/xperia-ion-lt28i-jelly-bean-6-2-b-0-204-firmware-certified-by-ptcrb/
That’s okay.. I’m even good with LT28i ICS since the AT&T firmware is very irritating with chunks of useless apps.
Can I use the Sony Update Service software to do this?
Yes you can use SUS for this but SUS will give your firmware update if there is an official update for your phone.
My phone goes in the charging mode as soon as it shows preparing files for flashing..
You need to press “Volume down” button while connecting the phone to PC, then Green light will blink indication as flashing mode otherwise red light will blink making phone charge.
It shows the green light first but after some time(when i have pressed the flash and it shows the “Preparing files for flashing”) it goes into the charging mode …
Its happening everytime after a few minutes of connecting the phone…plaese help
Please install your drivers again via flashtool, reboot your PC and phone and then try.
i have the same problem with sahil. i tried it many times but i failed.
i am still having the problem .. can you say me how did manage it?
When i connect in flash mode though SUS it connects normally and doesnot give any error …. but when i connect it while flashtool is opened it gives the error!
It seems LT28i users wont see long-awaited official update? What the reasons of that? may be sony fixes the bugs
That is what I’m using right now and when I open the Flashtool there’s nothing on it. I mean I’m getting a blank page. I tried to uninstall and install it but it’s just the same. Please he
Can’t understand why are you getting an error.
Turn of your antivirus Firewall. then install it. Run the FlashTool64 file…
Send us the screenshot of your error…
I have tried it again. I guess it’s because of the driver of LT28h I can’t install it in my PC. is there anyway on how to install the driver of my phone?
Success… Thank you Mr. Anurag 🙂
keep sharing your knowledge 🙂
Good luck and God Bless
How did you manage, i guess you were having issues ? Share your method please…
i just restart my laptop and download the flashtool & ftf file and install them again. Viola… i’m enjoying the taste of jelly bean now without any issues.
could you please tell us, what is the different between the three .ftf files listed above?
Please see, there is no difference…they are just 3 mirrors of same file.
i have a mac.. and i think the mirrors only work for windows? How can i update my lt28h ion to jellybean it dosnt show up on ota nor on my sony bridge for mac… any suggestions..
Same problems for me too, installed the flashtool,
1. Ion is not listed in the drivers list, so selected Xperia S
2. when pressed lightening Icon ( flash), my phone changed from glowing green to dark green ( charging mode).
so devise disconnected , hence unable to flash. Plz somebody help me……..
You can always add a device in the list, no issues.
P.S.

Do we need an internet connection for flashing?
No flashing from FlashTool don’t require an internet connection.
Installing from SUS or PCC requires.
Installed flash tool but Xperia ION is not available in drivers list, how to add ION in the list, can you please show the screenshot hear.
Hi Im new here, but I got some problems with My Xperia Ion LT28i, BN 6.1.E.3.7 . After I copied a film file on that, though the storage said enough space, the file was cracked in between. After i had transfer it on the phone, in the last 10 seconds, it stuck in between and forever stood still. so I had to cancel it.
But the fact is after i check on the MX-play – the player i used to play film. The film still appeared and I could still play it somehow in MX player but sadly some of my music were gone, so i guess the film had cover up some App contents and delete some files to make room.
And after that I couldnt make any call at all. If I log on to the Phone app, and hit any number to make a call, the screen keeps on appearing a white screen and that’s all.
is there anyway to recover only the phone app content? Should I install the software update manually then make a hard reset?But still in my region there is no officially update of LT28i officially yet. Please help me, thanks in advance.
something very wrong has gone with your firmware definitely. please try factory resetting your device ( wipe only settings, not data ) it should solve your problem.

Turn off your pc antivirus firewall and then reinstall pc companion and try again.
Good Day, please my LT28at. I am trying to unlock it but i got unlock code from at&t, and i also bought code from 3 different sources but they all gave me same code which means the code must have been correct. But i could not unlock the phone.

Have AT&T ion with LTE flashed .211 without baseband. Happy to have JB with LTE, but am getting random reboots. Any thoughts?
random reboots ? that’s weird :/ Are you rooted ???
No, not rooted. Of course also still has locked bootloader. Sucked battery big time for the first couple of days, but ok now. Usually reboots when listening to music.
can be the bug or try flashing again (wiping whole data / settings ).
Is the issue solved now? I was thinking to do the same.
Please, how will I flash my ion and retain the LTE function on ATT ions?
Also, if I am unable to do so, can I retain 3G coverage? I flashed my ion just now and cannot connected to mobile networks!
Try reflashing it again…lte function will not be there if not in firmware…
Done flashing. But now volume up button not working . What to do now …
Hi to everyone,
I have a question: does it is a way to save the downloaded firmware update before to flash it via PC Companion or Bridge?
Yes you can back it up. SUPPOSE you downloaded it via sus then…
Go to my computer > unhide folders (uncheck recommended windows data option) > go to program data > sony Ericsson > update service > db > blob fs > copy the 2 largest files in a separate folder > open flashtool > go to tools/advanced > decrypt files > select those 2 files > flashtool will decrypt them now > label your files > ftf will be created.
thanks for getting me back sooner and… for the great reply!
hello sir. i’ve done flashing the firmware with my xperia. but when i turn it on. my phone keeps rebooting. at one point,my phone turn on. and i play with it for a while. but then the screen fade away and turn off by itself . please help me sir. what should i do ?
