  2. Hello
    I have just bought a Xperia C5 Ultra E5563 and it seems that the model support in France by Orange is the E5533 (LTE 800 Mhz is not supported by the 55563 and I was not very aware of these difference between countries)
    Do you know if it is possible to switch of model just by a flash tool and what is the way to proceed
    Thanks for your answer

    1. Hello Frederic Payer.
      If you are asking about formatting the device with flash tool then Yes, you can reset the phone using flash tools.
      If you are asking about changing the model by using flash tool then I'm sorry, it's not possible.
      Hope it helps.
