Official Flash Tool for Xperia Devices by Sony Released

Yeah you saw the title, its official this time. Sony launched their own flash tool for Xperia devices. the tool is still in beta so it won't be supporting many new devices but it is worth a try. almost forgot, its for boot loader unlocked devices only.

Heh, it looks that they only stoled existing Flashtool, little bit changed design and disabled functionality for locked-bootloader phones :smileylaugh:  So it's useless for 75% users :smileylaugh:

Flashtool it's better as your bootloader doesn't have to be unlocked, it seems that  Sony is doing this either not to get a lot of users to flash their phones and/or legal reasons.
