It may need modifications, but probably the best starting point.
Heh, that error comes from the Flashtool

I guess I need to run xperiafrm.exe to get a proper SW package instead of downloading from random sites off da net.
I already tried that with mono but was behind the company firewall and it did not work. Have to try it from home...

worst case I still have the above ITA image to share, do not know if it's legal and how to do it, though

In debian/ubuntu-like distros you install wine with this command:

sudo apt-get install wine

Then run the .exe by typing:

wine XperiFirm.exe

Update: In order to use the tool you need .Net 4.0 installed as well. After installing wine install .Net with the following command:

winetricks dotnet40

The ftf file that you downloaded have already been processed by flashtool (flashtool generates that file)
You will need to download a firmware with xperifirm, which flashtool will process, creating a directory in flashtool folder with all the files it uses to create the ftf file.
Among them the flash file script.
Also, you should update flashtool (it’s a single jar file that you just replace in flashtool folder).
Short: The script is used to generate the ftf file (from my Xperia team days memory when I cracked the Play boot loader)

When I tried to use files that I downloaded using XperiFirm and created the ftf file from the files in downloaded folder (Tools > Bundles > Create) (did not use files cust-reset.ta and fota-reset.ta) I got about the same error as juiceme. Maybe I just made some error in creating the ftf file.

Code:
21/035/2017 21:35:41 - INFO  - No flash script found.
21/035/2017 21:35:41 - INFO  - Flash script is mandatory. Closing session
When I used ftf file that I directly downloaded for example from http://www.gsm-file.com/
(for F5121:
F5121_34.0.A.2.301_R8A_Nordic Generic_1302-3140.ftf

for F5122:
F5122_34.0.A.2.301_R9A_Hong Kong Generic_1302-5683.ftf,
later noticed, that also
F5122_34.0.A.1.277_Central Europe_1302-5672_R3A.ftf
was available)

I managed to flash the phones without any problems, assuming that USERDATA was ticked in wipe option in flashtool Firmware Selector.

I did this all in Windows 10, however, I did not manage to follow Windows instructions to backup DRM partitions, I had to do that in Linux :-)
