The Sony Mobile Flasher is an application that you install on Windows PCs to aid in the flashing of stock firmware files.

The Sony Mobile Flasher has been developed to work in conjunction with all Sony Xperia smartphones and tablets—no need to research whether your device has a Qualcomm or MediaTek system chip.

While the flashing of stock firmware packages is its main use, the Sony Mobile Flasher can also be used to customize a device with root access or custom ROMs. It’s even got the option to flash BusyBox or custom kernels if you’re into that sort of thing.

The Sony Mobile Flasher is available to use on all three major computer operating systems: Windows, Mac, and Linux. But, as with all useful flashing tools, you should install the latest version that’s made for your operating system to give your flashing the best chance of being compatible with your device, it’s Android software version, and it just might come with a few bug fixes that make it better than it’s predecessors, too.

While not as small as many other flashing tool applications out there, the Sony Mobile Flasher is a reliable way to flash stock firmware onto your Sony Xperia device. The extra file size spurns from the fact that it can do many other things, too.
