Is it possible to flash C5303 firmware FTF on C5302?

I'm using Xperia SP C5302 HSDPA version. I want to flash the firmware 12.0.A.2.245 FTF on it using flashtool. I googled for a FTF file. But only I could find a vietnam and indian version for C5302 Face with rolling Eyes. But there are many more FTF files available for C5303 with many regions. So I need to know is that possible to flash one of the C5303 FTF on my C5302 or else does anyone have a European or USA firmware FTF for 12.0.A.2.245 update?

the firmware version you speak of is available for the C5302 here but you will need to sign up to be able to create a download link

"the firmware version you speak of is available for the C5302 here but you will need to sign up to be able to create a download link" Thanks for the response. I suppose you are talking about the version Xperia SP_C5303_12.0.A.1.211_UK_Generic

It is UK. But not for C5302. It is for C5303 4G version of Xperia SP. Is that suits for C5302?

The only difference I know of between them is the bands they work on - See below

The different networks or variants will probably be aimed at countries where they don't have 4G or in some 3G

According to some sites they say you can Flash any firmware that is for the C5302 or 5303 - There's no mention of you been able to Flash the firmware from C5306 on to the 5302 or 5303 variants

 

2G Network

GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - all versions

 

3G Network

HSDPA 850 / 900 / 2100 - C5303

HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 - C5302

4G Network

LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600 - C5303

 

Just to add the firmware version you mention you want to flash is on that site for the C5302

Xperia SP_C5302_12.0.A.2.245_Vietnam_Generic

 

I see no European or US versions on there

yeah...i had tried it but after that i was unable to root my phone and once tried to upgrade from c5303's firmware to cyanogenmod directly so went in cwm and cleared all and installed cyanogenmod but my phone didnt boot coz it requires root and my phone lost it.. Slightly frowning Face unfortunately it was bricked .. so later i downloaded and flashed original latest c5302 firmware and re rooted it Slightly smiling Face  phewwwww.. !!!
