Xperia SP hard BRICKED

Hi!

 

I have an xperia sp, and it was buggi and slow so i wanted to install cm12. After a succesfull installian the phone never booted again, so i reinstalled the custom sony rom. Something went wrong during reinstalling, and it cancelled. Now the phone is stuck in a bootloop. Keep flashing the sony logo, than reboot. I think it's hardly bricked because:

-The phone is in bootloop.
-I cannot access recovery mode, because the rom reinstalling i lost my root privilege.
-Sony pc companion does not recognize my phone.
-When i try to flash the stock kernel on the phone, with flashtool (phone connected in flash mode), the phone always disconnects at Dumping TA partition 2.

-Cannot connect the phone in fastboot mode.

-No software recognize my phone, just flashtool.

-ADB drivers didn"t work.

 

I tried everithing on win10, win7 and ubuntu 14.04 that i coud find on the internet.

Should i throw it down from a cliff, of you guys have any idea?

What if you use flashtool?

Flashtool only works in flash mode, because i cannot connect the phone in fast boot mode (not works). And the kernel flashing always abort at the same point, and the phone disconnects.

Sorry to hear that, you might have to start a thread at the XDA Forum.

Sorry for this useless post but thought I'd mention that the Xperia sp is advertised by Sony as impossible to brick, you'll find that in writing, so you could possibly get it repaired free of charge if it's out of warranty and it is bricked, you'll need to quote the document number etc n see wot Sony have to say. Good luck

I don't understand, could you post the source link of that information?
