Re: Lollipop Screwed my Xperia Z Ultra Experience.

I wanted to revert back to KitKat so followed the guide in flashing firmware to my phone. I have completed the steps until the last (Flashing finished. Please unplug and start your phone.) I disconnected it. Then I powered it on. It was fine until it suddenly stopped during the startup process (purple startup animation). Then it entered into a boot loop. Now I have to do a software repair. Slightly frowning Face Any other tips or advice? Badly need it. Slightly frowning Face

reflash the phone or repair it with PCC 

 

press and hold power & volume up for 10 seconds to turn it off

I tried repairing it with PCC. The repair failed twice. It says check your internet connection. But the connection is fine. What should I do? Should I try to flash Lollipop instead?

Re: Lollipop Screwed my Xperia Z Ultra Experience.

that's odd, how slow/fast is your internet connection?

 

go to speedtest

 

also disable your firewall and antivirus and then try again.
