Where can I find stock firmware for xperia xz2 h8266?

Hi all,


I am trying to test twrp recovery for xz2 (see this thread) but I have installed custom firmware and can't test it.


My xz2 has bootloader unlocked, so xperia companion can't change the firmware.  xperiform doesn't find stock (official) firmware; all it finds are custom ones.   I've got into cul-de-sac.   Googling finds only very old ones.   I need the latest one; ie. 52.0.a.8.131.


Anyone knows where I can download it in .ftf form?


Thanks in advance!!
