Step 4: Run FlashTool and connect your phone to the PC




This step is very important. Make sure you follow it correctly or else you might brick your phone. First, turn off your phone completely and wait for a few seconds. Then, press and hold the volume down button while connecting your phone to your PC using the USB cable. This will put your phone into flash mode. You should see a green LED light on your phone indicating that it is in flash mode. If not, try again until you see it.


Next, run FlashTool on your PC and wait for it to detect your phone. You should see a message saying "Device connected in flash mode" at the bottom left corner of the FlashTool window. If not, try reconnecting your phone or changing the USB port until you see it.


Step 5: Select the stock ROM .ftf file and flash it

First, click on the lightning bolt icon at the top left corner of the FlashTool window and select Flashmode.

You should see a progress bar and some messages on the FlashTool window indicating that the flashing is in progress. Do not disconnect your phone or close FlashTool until the flashing is complete.


Finally, when the flashing is done, you should see a message saying "Flashing finished" at the bottom left corner of the FlashTool window.

FAQs




Here are some frequently asked questions that you might have about flashing a stock ROM on your Sony Xperia XZ SOV34.



What is the difference between a stock ROM and a custom ROM?


  • A stock ROM is the official software that comes pre-installed on your phone by the manufacturer. A custom ROM is a modified version of a stock ROM or a completely new software that is developed by third-party developers or enthusiasts. Custom ROMs usually offer more features, customization options, and performance enhancements than stock ROMs. However, custom ROMs also require more technical skills to install and may not be as stable or compatible as stock ROMs.



Can I flash any stock ROM on my Sony Xperia XZ SOV34?


  • No, you cannot flash any stock ROM on your Sony Xperia XZ SOV34. You can only flash a stock ROM that is compatible with your phone model and firmware version. Flashing an incompatible stock ROM can cause serious damage to your phone or make it unusable.



How can I check my phone model and firmware version?


  • You can check your phone model and firmware version by going to Settings > About phone > Model number and Build number on your phone.



Will flashing a stock ROM void my warranty?


  • It depends on your warranty policy and terms and conditions. Some manufacturers may consider flashing a stock ROM as a violation of their warranty policy and may refuse to provide any service or support for your phone. Others may not mind as long as you flash an official stock ROM that matches your phone model and firmware version. You should always check with your manufacturer before flashing a stock ROM to avoid any warranty issues.



Can I flash a custom ROM after flashing a stock ROM?


  • Yes, you can flash a custom ROM after flashing a stock ROM if you want to try something different or experiment with new features. However, you will need to unlock your bootloader first before flashing a custom ROM. Unlocking your bootloader will erase all your data on your phone and may void your warranty. You will also need to install a custom recovery image such as TWRP or CWM before flashing a custom ROM.
