Xperia Z hardlocked

Hello!

 

I'm writting because i realized that my Sony Xperia Z is hardlocked due to incorrect unlock codes...

 

I checked that by *#*#7378423#*#* where i found this:

 

[x] Network 0
[ ] Network subset 0
[ ] Service provider 0
[ ] Corporate 0
[ ] SIM 0

 

So i'd like to know if there is a solution to unlock my phone...

 

Waiting for solutions,

 

Best regards,

Rodrigo Mendes

Re: Xperia Z hardlocked

it seems that if you use a code 5 times you won't be able to unlock the phone at all, you could try to flash a different firmware with flashtool or use SUS or PCC but I doubt it will reset this.

Re: Xperia Z hardlocked

I don't know how to flash a different firmware with flashtool and i don't know what it does to the handset...

 

I notice that i'm able to use SUS. Do you think it'll be ok with that? What it does to my phone?

Re: Xperia Z hardlocked

SUS will reset your phone, flashtool will install a different software/firmware.

Re: Xperia Z hardlocked

SUS i the best way to reset the phone instead going to settings and restore it to factory default?

Re: Xperia Z hardlocked

Hello again

 

I tried SUS and it seems the same:

 

[x] Network 0
[ ] Network subset 0
[ ] Service provider 0
[ ] Corporate 0
[ ] SIM 0

 

By this i can't unlock my phone, right? So i only can try now flashtool as last option?

 

Regards

Re: Xperia Z hardlocked

Indeed, but I expect the same result as SUS
