FlashTool with FTF and FTF firmware Firmware Installation Manual Set Up

Download and install FlashTool  (0.9.22.3) - (0.9.18.6) Download Once you launch the program, you should see something similar to below.





Click Tools > Bundles > FILESET Decrypt



You will see the box below. Where it says “Source Folder”, click the three dots to locate the folder where your “FILE” files are. They should then appear as per the screen below under the “Available files” pane.



You then need to highlight all of these files and click the right arrow to move across to “Files to convert”. Hit “Convert”.



Once you do this, FlashTool will start decrypting your files. This can take a few minutes so please be patient before moving to the next step.



Once the above step is finished, you will see a pop-up similar to the screen below.



Tap the “Device” box which will bring up some pop-up boxes allowing you to automatically select which firmware the handset is for. You can then type in the region under the “Branding” box along with the build number in the “Version” box.



Now select and move all of the files on the left side (apart from the .ta files) to the “Firmware content” pane on the right. As you can see in the picture below, do not include the .ta files. Click “Create”.



FlashTool will now start creating the bundle.



Once you see “Bundle creation finished” your job is done. Close FlashTool.



Congrats, your newly created FTF firmware file will be located in the FlashTool firmware folder. This is in “C:\Flashtool\firmwares” for a default installation.

You can then use FlashTool to flash this FTF to your handset. Check out our previous guide on this – the principle is the same, just use your FTF file, instead of the one provided in the guide.
