Configuring flashtool on Linux to root/install custom roms on Sony/SonyEricsson Android phone

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.
http://www.flashtool.net

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)
cp /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/80-persistent-usb.rules

then open the file by
vi /etc/udev/rules.d/80-persistent-usb.rules

paste the following lines to the file.
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0fce", SYSFS{idProduct}=="*", MODE="0777"

save the file and close it.


then go to the place where you saved the extracted Flashtool-xxxxxx.tar.7z by using 
#cd <place_where_extracted_files_saved> 
Run the program using 
#./FlashTool

wait until "Cloning devices from github project" or any other waiting window closes.
