The new tool lets you download each and every available firmware for all Xperia devices. The software itself directly connects with the servers and lets you view all the firmware available. You can download the latest software for your phone or even download for others. Only drawback with XperiFirm is that it only lets you download, it can’t install anything.

XperiFirm supports Linux, Windows and Mac. Tools rarely support all major Operating Systems but in this case, XperiFirm does it all. It doesn’t however ship with USB drivers, that you have to do on your own. Also, as mentioned, the tool can not execute updates on it own.
