    Why did they removed the quick icons from Notification bar that appeared in 11.3.A.2.13?

    The link above to Xperia E (C1505)_11.3.A.2.23_Unbranded.ftf shows and downloads as 390Mb. I have a download for Stock Kernel Xperia E C1505_11.3.A.2.23 and Stock Kernel Xperia E C1505_11.3.A.0.47 that seems to be around 5.7 Mb. As a newbie on this stuff , what size should I be expecting.

    5.7 Meg downloaded from

    I gather I need the .0.47 to allow me to root my phone.
