Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

Update: After 25+ hours of waiting - My phone is still charging - Red LED light has disappeared!

I will follow this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=31618617&postcount=32 which tells me to flash the software when the Red light is Off..

Will update here again whether the flashing is successful Slightly smiling Face

Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

I think you should just try switching it on now. Your phone is still in flashmode and to end it , you need to press and hold the power button.

No problem, I'm just waiting for the final results.

Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

It automatically on-ed by itself :smileygrin:

yay! Thank you once again Nabeel!! Slightly smiling Face

Full Guide:

  1. Let the phone charge for 4+ hrs on wall charger (No LED).
  2. After 4-6 hours, Red LED should appear flashing. After a few hours, Red LED should be constant. Continue charging for 25+ hours on wall charger until Red LED disappears or turns Green.
  3. Unplug from wall charger
  4. Run flashtool from PC, flash a stable firmware. Do not plug in phone to PC until it asks to.
  5. While holding volume down, plug in USB - May take up to 10 minutes for the phone to be connected and flashing to begin
  6. Green LED will appear and after a few seconds - flash will run.
  7. Unplug USB and Charge with wall charger.
  8. Phone should be back up and running. Slightly smiling Face

Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

Hey nabeel can you help with my ION .

As it is not turning ON after long charging. Even when i am trying to flash it , at the end it says for flashing your device must be checked in with USB debugging, bt the problem is that my ION is not turing ON so , how can I check USB debugging in settings?
