Sony Xperia E1 Firmware D2005 is the successor of Xperia E but compare to the first generation of Xperia E it is much powerful device. Sony Xperia E1 D2005 has a dual-core processor and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Below you can find the latest firmware for the phone and also three tutorials/manuals – how to unlock the bootloader, how to relock the bootloader and how to back up the original firmware customization.
Flashing firmware’s or custom ROM’s to Sony devices is as easy as updating your device to the latest version of Android. Also, it’s pretty easy to flash ROM to Sony phones compared to other devices. All you need is your phone’s firmware file (.FTF file) and the popular FlashTool. From here you can download the latest firmware for your Sony Xperia E1 D2005.
If you want to try another custom ROM’s in your device you can download the available ROM or recoveries for your Sony Xperia E1 D2005 and flash it using guides provided in this website. In order to install any ROM other than stock, you have to root your phone and then need to flash custom recoveries like CWM (clockwork mode) or TWRP on your phone. Usually, we flash stock ROM if something wrong with the software side. So, after firmware flashes your Sony Xperia E1 D2005 phone will be in a factory reset condition.

How to Install Firmware file
- Firmware file for your device (.FTF)
- USB cable
Please note that i wrote this tutorial for flashtool version (0.9.23.2). If you are using other versions there may be some difference for flashing the same file. So i request you to download the same version mentioned here or do it with your own risk.
- Download and install the Flashtool package from official website.
- Now go to your installed directory (usually – ‘C:\Flashtool\drivers’) and install Flashtool drivers
- Tick the “Flashmode Drivers” and “Fastboot Drivers” to install (see below image)
Note: To install the Flashtool drivers for Windows 8/8.1/10, please click here.
- Here we finished installing Flashtool now Open It.
- Click on the lightning bolt in the top left of Flashtool as highlighted below.
Select, ‘Flashmode’ and click OK
You should already be in the source folder where the FTF firmware files are located. If not, navigate to: “C:\Users\[Your PC Name]\.flashTool\firmwares” If you still not able to find the path check this too, “C:\Flashtool\firmwares\” now you should get it.
Select the firmware build version that you want to flash from the “Firmware” pane. Ensure the device variant is the same as the model number of your Sony Xperia device.
‘A clean install is the way to go‘
So tick all options under the “Wipe” pane. This will wipe all of your data though including your photos and videos, so please ensure you have these backed up somewhere else.
Leave all others unchanged
Click on “Flash“. Flashtool will then indicate that it is “preparing files for flashing”.
Sometimes, you may have to wait around 60 seconds for the pop-up below to appear. Once it does, make sure that the device is powered off and then hold the ‘volume down’ button and connect the usb cable. Once the pop-up disappears and flashing has started, you can let go of the ‘volume down’ button.
Flashtool will then start flashing your Xperia device.
Once you see “Flashing finished” as indicated below, your Sony Xperia has been successfully flashed.
Hurray 🙂 you have just installed stock firmware! Now disconnect your Xperia device and power on the handset.
It will take some time for the first boot so, don’t worry if it takes a while, this is to be expected.
You can use the firmware for variety of purposes, which includes:
- Fix your Sony Xperia E1 if it’s giving you force closes errors and restarts randomly.
- Unbrick your Sony Xperia E1 if it’s boot looping and stuck at logo when restarting.
- Go Back to Stock on your Sony Xperia E1 — helps when looking to sell the device, or fix installing OTA updates if broken.
- Restore Sony Xperia E1 to factory state i.e original state when you bought.
- Upgrade your Sony Xperia E1 to newer Android version.
- Downgrade your Sony Xperia E1 to lower build no. at same Android version.
- Unroot your Sony Xperia E1.
- Remove custom recovery like TWRP and CWM, if installed, on your Sony Xperia E1.
To perform any of the above, simply install the firmware meant for your device, as per its model no. in Settings > About device.
