Re: Xperia M Error Type password to decrypt storage

From what I see the relock was successful - Are you now able to perform a system repair but it may still fail due to a custom recovery being installed

Re: Xperia M Error Type password to decrypt storage

are you using the latest version of Flashtool? and if you get that error then your .ftf file appears corrupted or is the wrong one for your device model

Re: Xperia M Error Type password to decrypt storage

There's no reason why it shouldn't work unless the file you have used before has become corrupted or it could be that the system you are using is Windows 8 or a 64bit system so try transferring these files to a 32 bit based system and try again

Re: to flashing, what do i need to be aware of?

Try performing a system repair using PC Companion as this will often fix issues - This will factory reset your phone

Switch off your phone and unplug from Pc (Hold volume up and power for around 10 seconds)
Start PC Companion and select Support zone then Update my phone/tablet then in Blue Repair my phone/tablet and follow the on screen instructions - When prompted connect your phone still switched off holding volume down or back button - This should start the repair or reformat process

If you are using Windows 8/8.1 or a 64bit operating system then adjust the settings for PC Companion and run in compatibility mode and chose Windows 7 or XP
