Sony courts Android developers by releasing beta Flash Tool, returns Xperia devices to stock


  • Joseph

    Sony has been promising in supporting their consumers, so I’ll try to show MY support!

    My next phone will be an Xperia.

    This is great, but it’s still only for phones with unlocked bootloaders. People with locked bootloaders still have to find our own way to flash our phones.

    Sony has some of the best looking phones out there, so this is a step in the right direction in terms of adoption.

    From an honest consumer standpoint, we don’t want Samsung (or anyone for that matter) to have too much of the pie. I imagine this is why Google is pushing LG products with the Nexus 4.

  • Mr Mystery

    Now all Sony has to do is sell a few phones so those that do buy can use this tool. Good luck with that.

    Sony should have just BUILT a Nexus Device and be done with it.
    Maybe once the SALES number of the LG made Google Nexus 4 become Public Sony and others might take Notice and rethink there Business strageys.

    How about Sony work on not abandon to support their device with in one year before anything else?

    I’d like to see sony make a big comeback. Their walkman phones were some of the best at the time. The w810i, that phone was a beast, I had 3 of them over the years. The w910i was an awesome slider phone too!
