This is a firmware downloader for the family of Sony's based XperiFirm, which is supported by Xperia devices. This includes most of Sony's devices. With XperiFirm tool, you can now search and download all your modifications in one spot without hassle.
How this application works is that it searches Sony's servers for your desired firmware. If you don't know what your specifications are, no worries as XperiFirm Tool detects your settings automatically and guide you to the firmware that your device qualifies for. That being said, downloading from the Sony servers can be slow but with the new features, you can resume downloads should the downloading process is interrupted. Recall that downloading from the servers is dependent on your current location/country. This tool is supported on Windows, Mac, and Linux as well. One cool feature is the ability to launch the application on an extendable USB drive, convenient for those who prefer to activate externally. Unfortunately, this application will not actually install the downloaded files for you automatically. That is up to your physical hardware specifications though. Some popular firmware you can download via XperiFirm Tool is the widely used Lollipop and Marshmallow firmware for Android devices. Overall, this is a valuable addition to the Sony based ecosystem of devices.
