This is the easy simple guide to Configuring flashtool on Linux to root/install custom roms on Sony/SonyEricsson Android phone. Using the windows version of Flashtool is easy but, Linux fans can't find a Windows PC to get the work done.
First of all download the Linux version of Flash tool from Flashtool website.
Then ensure that you have libusb-1.0 is installed. 64bits system needs the both 64bit and 32bit. If you don't have it, simply download it using the package manager of your distribution version.
Now type this command the configure some USB settings for Flashing interface
Settings are saved inside /etc/udev/rules
create new file for settings using terminal/command line as root (sudo/su followed by password for root)
