Re: { EMMA } Sony Flash tool for Xperia™ devices

Same here, installed, copied ini, process runs in the background but nothing is dispayed after emma start splash.
Tried on 2 different machines, w10 and w7, firewall and antivirus off. Also connected the phone in flash mode, maybe it will pop-up or something but nothing. Does it have to be in usb debug?
Please halp.

Re: { EMMA } Sony Flash tool for Xperia™ devices

Hi, - same problem for me -.-

I truly followed the instructions, but Emma won't start.

I copied the customization.ini into the Emma folder.

folder_structure.JPG

I am running Windows 7. And when I run Emma.exe, (normal, or as administrator) nothing happens.
I don't see a programm running in task manager, but I do see a process Emma.exe *32

 

Any suggestions what I am doing wrong?

Re: { EMMA } Sony Flash tool for Xperia™ devices

Had the same problem; Emma wouldn't launch after reinstall, the process was alive but nothing shown after splash screen.

 

What worked for me:

 

Instead of downloading the outdated version from http://developer.sonymobile.com/downloads/tool/flash-tool-for-xperia-devices/ (which is what you find if you google for it), I downloaded the up-to-date version from http://software.sonymobile.com/emma/ (just click on "Download Emma").

 

Seems there is some issue with the update process if you download from the first link. You will still need the customization.ini from the first link unless you have it already, but use the second link to install the program. Probably have to uninstall the old version first.

 

Hope this helps someone.

 

Regards
