          Well i don’t where did you read this line..a kind of noob must have written it 😛

          Flashing doesn’t need Rooting, No bootloader unlokcing , No warranty is lost.

          Check this link we have all steps listed here how to flash…( steps are for XS, but same goes for every phone ) –

    k.. thanx..
    by d way i read this
    and will flashing erase all my data.. likegames.. apps.. contacts.. etc??

    • Anurag Kumar August 10, 2013 at 9:23 pm - Reply

      Well when you flash there is option Wipe > Data, Cache, Log – If you check them then it gets wiped otherwise not.

      Recommended – Back Up your phone via PC Companion and get all apks backed up by any antivirus like AVG or other software ( now you have full data backed up ).

      It is always recommended when you flashing to do a full factory reset phone swiping internal data and then do flashing wiping all data and cache so that no previous file of firmware is left and you get a fresh smooth installation.

    Please, help me, friend.

    I’ve updated my C2104 – 15.0.a.1.31 to 2.17 using Flash Tool…

    But now my 3g connection doesn’t work…
    I’d like to restore my previous firmware version but it seems impossible… (2.17 is not available in PC Companion here in Brazil, but when I restore, it always restore as if 2.17 was the original version)

    What should I do?

      contact Sony service center and ask them to update your phone via EMMA software, there they have the list of all firmwares available.

    Hello guys, I need your help urgently. I have some doubts about this Firmware.

    I’m from Brazil and my device Xperia L C2104 is a national (I acquired on 26/09/13).


    *Doubt 1: Can I use this firmware normally without future problems?

    *Doubt 2: My Xperia L will continue with the language Protuguês (Braisl) even with this update C2105?

    *Doubt 3: I noticed that in the Changelog “does NOT support OTG cables”.
    So I would not be able to use a DualShock 3 Control (PS3), even with the Sixaxis Controller-v0.6.6 App configured and SixaxisPairTool-v0.2.3?

    *Doubt 4: The Xperia L C2104 CAN NOT ROOTED and is not with the Bootloader UNLOCKED?

    *Doubt 5: I already have a firmware that I downloaded on a Brazilian website, there is information Firmware:

    ->Firmware Name: C2105_15.0.A.2.17_CE.ftf
    ->File Size: 571,718 KB



    Below is my Xperia L System:

    * Model Number – C2104 Xperia U
    * Android Version – 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
    * Baseband Version – 8930B-BAAAANAZQ-12321-03-1027
    * Kernel Version – 3.4.0-g7e50acb-dirty
    * Firmware build number – 15.0.A.1.31


    • Angelo Bernardi October 16, 2013 at 7:11 pm - Reply

      Doubt 1: Yes. I did it with a Chilean Customized C2104. No problem at all, except for a problem with with the play store, but with the solution was easy (just search google for “play store RPC:S-5:AEC-0″)

      Doubt 2: Yes =)

      Doubt 3: Actually, your version doesn’t support USB OTG. (C2104/5 Doesn’t support OTG officially). I tried a USB keyboard/mouse that worked on my prior Xperia (Arc S) and didn’t worked.

      Doubt 4: I rooted the C2104 (framaroot with gandalf exploit). I have thw bootloader locked and I was able to root and to flash the new ROM.

      Doubt 5: Yes =)

    Please, I want to upgrade mi Xperia, but I don’t know if my 3G will work after the upgrade.
    I have a C2104 and my Telco uses 1900MHz Band.

    bst rgds!

    • Angelo Bernardi October 16, 2013 at 7:01 pm - Reply

      I took the risk.
      The ROM works awesome. There were no problems with 3G.
      The only problem was with with the play store, but with the solution was easy (just search google for “play store RPC:S-5:AEC-0”)

      BTW, It’s ideal to have the last versions of FlashTool (You can get it from www.

      See ya!!

    Hello I have a little Issue, My Xperia L (c2104) uts detected by PCC as C2105 but i downloaded the file for the C2104 and now i can’t use 3G connection,
    an i cant restore my apk from the backup it say the backup its from a newer version and can’t migrate
    How I Can Fix This?
    (Sorry For the bad english)
    Thanks 🙂

    • Angelo Bernardi October 18, 2013 at 4:00 am - Reply

      Can you try to repair your xperia with PC Companion
      or flash the c2105 ftf with flashtool.

      if you had this issue, it’s because your Xperia L it’s a C2105, not a C2104.
      The only difference between both, it’s that C2104 uses different 3G frequencies than C2105.

      Hope it helps!

      • Harim Hernandez October 18, 2013 at 6:18 am - Reply

        Hello Angelo, the box of the cellphone has the C2104 printed on it, before Flashing it PCC said it was a c2104, can i change the frequency with some settings?, my carrier uses a 3g-850
        and thanks by the way 🙂

        • Angelo Bernardi October 18, 2013 at 5:41 pm - Reply

          You are right, it’s a 2104.
          You can’t change freqs. They are ROM dependant.
          Have you configured the APNs of your carrier???

          • Harim Hernandez October 21, 2013 at 3:31 am -

            Angelo, I’ve configured the APN of my carrier and now it’s working 🙂 thanks a lot
