Re: sony update engine failure (error 2003)

it says modified software when you connect your phone? have you unlocked your  bootloader? or is your phone locked to a network? try running SUS and PCC with admin privelages, then try also using another USB ports.

most probably you have unlocked your bootloader, try to lock it again. or just look for official sony roms, just search on this forum

Re: sony update engine failure (error 2003)

you can't use PCC or SUS bc your bootloader its unlocked
