How can I flash my W8(E16i)?

Dear value moderator,

I crashed my W8 phone. I was trying to turn it on but it hangs with the word SonyEricsson.

I have installed PCcompanion on my PC and ways out to flash it back. I had tried to ask forum here once but nobody give me any detailed solution.

Pls, kindly share some idea on how to deal with this matter.

Thanks in advance.

Re: How can I flash my W8(E16i)?

If I understood properly, you want your phone to be working again.

Can you try to perform a software/firmware repair using PC Companion

Connect your phone to the PC via the USB cable

The repair option on PC Companion (Support Zone --> Update --> Repair).

Please backup your phone data and settings before proceeding.

or if it did not work

Can you try the SE Update service

http://dl-www.sonyericsson.com/cws/download/1/110/61/1317636927/Update_Service_Setup-2.11.10.7.exe

Download, install and launch the update service on the PC. Follow the onscreen prompts.

Please backup your phone data and settings before proceeding.

At first, I tried to fix it by using PCcompanion but it seems didn't work.

Thank you so much for your help.
