Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

hey 03parth

What's the status of your phone now ?

try force restarting and shutdown

USB debugging is not needed for flashing, so don't worry.

Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

Model: LT28i

Firmware:ICS 6.1.C.1.105

Status:

It is in OFF mode since last month. I cant turn it ON. While charging shows strong RED LED.

No response when pressing power on and combination button for soft/force restart.

After charging 16+ hours red led went off.Again try to turn ON but no response so charged it again so back with strong RED LED.

When try to flash it , i can get in to flashmode and flash process shoes 100% on flashtool and at the end flashtool says disconnect your device and turn on.For flashing USB debugging and unknown sources should be checked in setting.And when after flashing try to ON it wont start.

So please Nabeel find some solution for my ION , stuck in it for one and half month.

Man are you serious ? Anguished Face

You're phone has been in coma for over a month now and you still haven't get your phone examined at service center.

It's probably a hardware damage friend and the only option is to visit service center.

Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

I have already sent it once for repair but they didnt find any hardware problem at all.

And even he can't even load ant firmware on my ION.

So I decided to turn ON by getting help from this forum .

It just shows only RED LED on charging.

I can get in to flashmode.

2 times my display was blinking for near about 5-7 min.

Is there any solution?

Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

To be honest, there is no exact solution.

It's just that whenever a phone gets bricked, it charges really slowly. Moreover it's not detected/ flashed by PCC / SUS / Flashtool if the battery is low.

Now what you should try to do is, charge continuously for a day or so. Then flash it using flashtool and try to switch it on by force restarting it ( not the normal way )

Press and hold the power button + Volume Up button for

5 seconds > ( 1 Vibration ) Force restart

10 Seconds > ( 3 Vibrations ) Force shutdown

If this doesn't work then RIP Ion Slightly frowning Face

Re: Xperia ion hard bricked

Nabeel, i am facing the same issue oyhens had faced.

After a long charging cycle ( around 4 hrs) its showing Red LED.

I bricked my phone while flashing a paranoid android rom ( Forgot to flash the boot.img and directly flashed the rom file!)

At least for now phone responds to long press of power and volume button (1 vibration n 3 vibration)

Keeping my fingers crossed to recover my phone Slightly frowning Face

Will update the status..
