I required to extract Sony Xperia M (C1904, C1905) FTF files to get the stock wallpapers and ringtone files, I decided to extract the FTF using the procedure listed here (which is for ICS), as Xperia M comes with Jelly Bean, the procedure is bit different here, so I write up this guide on how to easily extract the FTF files and see the contents of the file for Jelly Bean Version.
Files and Tools required for extracting.
1) FTF File of your Xperia Device ( You can download from XDA Developers Forum)
2) 7zip extract Software (Google it to download) – Install on your PC
- First place the FTF (device firmware file) in a folder and extract the file using the 7zip software.
- Open the extracted folder and check if you have the system.sin file, check the size of the file, it should be a big file (but not 0kb file)
- Open the Flash tool, Click on Tools-—> Sin Editor
- Browse the system.sin file from the extracted FTF folder
- Click on Extract Data
- Allow the Flash Tool to extract the data, it will take 3-4 Mins to extract the sin file, wait for the flash file to display the following line.
Extraction finished to C: \Downloads\Xperia\system.ext4 line, sample looks like below.
30/042/2013 14:42:18 – INFO - ->
30/042/2013 14:42:18 – INFO - Flashtool Version 0.9.12.1 built on 2013-06-04 22:50:00
30/042/2013 14:42:26 – INFO - Device disconnected
30/047/2013 14:47:44 – INFO - Starting data extraction
30/047/2013 14:47:47 – INFO - Generating empty container file
30/047/2013 14:47:47 – INFO - File size : 1200 Mb
30/048/2013 14:48:22 – INFO - Container generated. Now extracting data to container
30/050/2013 14:50:55 – INFO - Extraction finished to C: \Downloads\Xperia\system.ext4
You should now see the system.ext4 file created in the FTF folder.
Now open ext2read tool and click folder icon,select system.ext4 file,select open and select the folder like (C:/) in the 1st White window and click floppy icon,now ext2read will save the system folder on C:
You should now be able to see the contents of the FTF file, the default location for wallpapers and ringtones of FTF file are as follows
Discuss more about the extraction of FTF files and the issues that
You encounter using the below comments section.

I was trying to get my pc internet shared to my xperia android device, the two options i shortlisted was mHotspot and connectify, as connectify being limited and requires a purchase, i thought to give a try of mHotspot which seems to be free.
The installation of mHotspot was successful but i couldn’t launch the application, it immediately crashed upon opening stating that “mHotspot had stopped working and needs to close.
I followed the instructions posted on mHostspot knowledgebase to enable Microsoft .net framework 3.5, but still the crash continued,
Here is how i got mHotspot working without crashing on windows 7 PC
I saw that my windows firewall service is under disabled mode.This is the main reason for the mHotspot to crash, i went ahead and enabled the windows firewall through services.msc and started the firewall service and and launched mHotspot
mhotspot launched successfully on windows 7 without crashing.
This is my analysis about the crash.
When windows firewall service is under disabled mode, the Internet connection sharing is not possible, if you got to a lan adapter properties and try to enable the ICS, it would throw the following error, as mHotspot is based out of ICS, its causing the application to crash.
cannot enable shared access Error:0×80004005: unspecified error
enable the firewall and start the windows firewall service through run–Services.msc and Windows Firewall.

Never Worry if your phone USB/Connector port is damaged or if your phone doesn’t charged your battery. It’s quite common on today’s smart phones to have a broken, bent or damaged charging port / built in USB port.
The Micro USB/Charging port sometimes is integrated with the mother board of the mobile or it will be a replaceable part, but it completely depends on the make and model. When the charging port gets damaged if it is integrated with the mother board , you can’t do much about it. You would be lucky enough if your warranty is void, you have to shell 100+$ to get the motherboard replace just for a charging port, which I feel is worthless when you have the below option.
The one way to keep your mobile phone battery recharging is to get a universal battery charger which is easily available through the top online stores (ebay Amazon), Google it for Universal Mobile Battery Charger. The Price of this would be between $2 to $10.
One example of integrated charging port is Sony Tipo, the port is integrated with mother board and you can just not replace the port itself, you need to change your board.
Discuss more about the micro usb charging ports and its design and the usability/durability through the below comments section.

This is the most common error observed when you try to start the Default Website in IIS (internet Information services), the reason for the error is the port binding in IIS Default Website “Site Bindings” Window.
Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0×80070020)
Recollect if you have modified any of the ports in the IIS or installed any new application recently that might be using the same port as the IIS is using.
IIS usually uses port 80 for http and 443 for https.Just follow the below steps to resolve the port binding issue.
- Open the IIS (Click Rin type “inetmgr.exe” and hit enter)
- Click on Default Website
- On the Right Side, click on “Bindings” Link
- This would bring up the Site Bindings Window.
- Observe and edit the default or altered port to some unused ports on your PC
Hopefully, this should resolve the issue, discuss more about this topic using the below comments section.

Fatal Error: MSI destinations this is most typical error that you encounter while installing a HP Product on your PC, this error is observed for HP All-In-One Products during their installation phase.If this error is something related to Invalid Drive C:\ then you have a differently named drive other than C, where the HP Software is trying to locate the C drive for extracting and installation of the required files, if some thing that is not related to invalid drive, then you can try the below steps to resolve the issue.

- Clear the Temp folder

- Strongly recommend to reboot your system and then run the HP Software and Driver Removal utility.
- If you are not using any other hp products, try cleaning all the hp folders from the Program files and the Program Data Directory under C Drive
Logging as the administrator and try installing the software by downloading it from HP Support and Drivers Website, make sure you run the setup file from the location of the sub directory under your drive, Eg: put the downloaded file in C:\Personal\…exe and run this exe as administrator if you are using windows 7.

This is my review on Shopping at AliExpress, I bought few mobile spares from Aliexpress through a reputed HongKong Seller listed in alibaba/aliexpress, after placing an order and almost a two months wait,to my Surprise, I never received the product to my shipping address, the seller was not even responding to e-mails and pings through trade manager.
At this point i though of contacting Ali Express and raise a Dispute of My Order and i did so,
When i initially raised a dispute, i though someone from AliExpress customer support/buyer protection team would contact within two working days,dispute was opened on April 16
The dispute has been escalated. Your dispute will be submitted to our Case Management Team. We will contact you at the complaint center within 2 calendar days.
Please sign in to the complaint center to view more details about your dispute, and follow the dispute process.
Learn more about dispute policy
It has been almost a month the dispute has been escalated, there is no response from AliExpress Buyer protection and i strongly believe that there would be no help from Aliexpress, as i see lots of bad buying experience with AliExpress and Alibaba
Check the bad Reviews of aliexpress here
In-addition, AliBaba Trade manager instant chat messenger is a spy program which takes lots of personal information from your PC, beware not to install the alibaba trade manager at any cost.Check out the forums of AliExpress before even thinking of shopping at Aliexpress, I name Aliexpress as something a Scam-express, which suits best for Scams and Fraud encouragement of the Chinese sellers.
So Readers, this post is to alert about Aliexpress and its fraud buyer protection system.Look out for other alternate options online excluding Aliexpress, i prefer ebay with high seller feedback score.
