Unable to use Xperia Services after relocking bootloader


I've a problem with my Xperia XA1, in which I wanted to unlock my bootloader (using official tools), to late discover that there's no TWRP or similar available, so I decided to relock it, because it was kinda useless for my needs.

But something went wrong, so I had to use Xperia Companion with "repair software" option, because phone was stuck on "Sony" logo.

But now I cannot access Xperia services, I cannot restore the backup I've done on Xperia's Google cloud backup, because when I try to login, it goes on load loop on "logging in".

In addititon, Xperia Updater doesn't find some system app updates I had before.

Can you please help me? Is there a way to make it work again? I've build version 48.1.A.0.129 (with Oreo 8.0)

Thanks in advance,

kind regards,

Re: Unable to use Xperia Services after relocking bootloader


we do not support device relock and it is impossible for me to replicate your steps
