USB disconnected while updating! Any help, please??

Hi.

I was updating my x10i to 2.3 yesterday when the usb cable got disconnected briefly from the phone. The phone turns on, displays the 'Sony Ericsson' logo, then displays a funny looking screen (like the colour stain u get on the screen of a cracked LCD). It does nothing apart from this, even after removing battery and trying again, etc. It doesnt progress any further. I'm assuming what i succeeded in doing was to 'brick' the phone?

What i've tried so far

I've tried using PC companion, but since the update was interrupted midway PC companion thinks the phone has 2.3. The repair option does not work, and neither does reinstall.

Can anyone please help me?? Any method at all, doesnt really matter as i've backed up all data.

If you are willing to perform a manual firmware update, please refer to the following post

Note : Any operator version of your firmware will be lost. In your case this is not relevant as you mentione, your phone is not booting up.

Hopefully this method may solve your problem.

Try to run Update Service, http://www.sonyericsson.com/updateservice. The phone must be powered off during the whole update process so it will hopefully be possible to do this.
