Sony launches beta flash tool for Xperia devices


Sony continues to live up to it’s reputation as most developer friendly manufacturer. If you own a Xperia device and you flash custom ROMs, you’ve probably heard of Flashtool, a tool to update your device while the bootloader is unlocked, as the official methods (PC Companion, Sony Mobile Update Service or OTA) have the risk to brick your phone.

Today Sony has released its own flash tool which will flash the stock firmware. Currently only the Xperia S, Xperia Arc and Xperia Arc S are supported, but more phones will probably be supported later on.
