Xperia Z3+ Dual: How to Enter Download Mode (Flash Mode) and Fastboot Mode

Either that you practice phone software repairs as a profession, an advanced android phone user or a basic Android user, there are a few operations that you need to learn when you first get a hold on Sony Xperia Z3+ Dual Android device and how to boot the Xperia Z3+ Dual to download mode, flash mode or fastboot mode are just few of those operations. These two operations, download mode / flash mode and fastboot mode are usually required for carry out official and other helpful operations on any Sony Xperia Android smartphone or tablet.


Meanwhile, in this article, I will explain you how to easily and safely enter download mode / flash mode and fastboot mode on your Sony Xperia Z3+ Dual.

Learning how to boot your Xperia Z3+ Dual into flash mode is an essential reason being that it can be used for fixing a bricked Xperia Z3+ Dual Android device, for correcting some software issues and for improving the Android experience that is featured on your Sony Xperia Z3+ Dual.


Flash mode is actually the same thing with download mode. The download mode is a term which is used when referring to Samsung branded Android devices. Now, the other handsets can be entered in flash mode, which of course isn’t different at all from the already mentioned download mode. But why should you learn how to enter flash mode on your Xperia Z3+ Dual? Basically this mode will be required when you will be trying to apply an official Android firmware update manually and not via OTA release.


Recommended:

Flashing an update manually is also a must have knowledge especially when you have problems with your device. In this case you can fix various issues, bugs, lags, force close errors, freeze situations and lot more problems that are the result of unofficial procedures which include gaining root access, unlocking the bootloader, flashing a custom recovery image, updating with a custom ROM firmware, installing a custom kernel, removing bloatware and so on.

So as you can see, learning how to enter and use flash mode / download mode on the Sony Xperia Z3+ Dual is not really an option for you. Of course, also for resolving the issues from above you can try to make a hard reset / factory reset, or to clear cache, that does not always correct the errors.


Before flashing an official Android OS by using the flash mode, it is recommended that you backup the Xperia Z3+ Dual data and th̩ TA Partition because; 1. Everything that you have saved on the internal storage memory will be wiped out / lost to the operation Рthe same is happening when applying a hard reset. 2. The TA Partition controls the signal (GSM and Data Service) related aspects of the phone. This means with the TA Partition gone, you cannot get your Xperia Z3+ Dual to bring any signal at all. So, take your time and complete a full and proper backup for saving stuffs like personal data, info and accounts including your contacts list, call logs, text messages, installed apps, internet settings and everything else you might use or need afterwards.


Must Read:

Good; now it should be clear to you that this tutorial is compatible only with the Sony Xperia Z3+ Dual and with no other Android based device. You should always use compatible guides that have been tested or you might end up damaging your handset or in messing things up.
