Re: Can't put device into flashmode

Good Evening/Hello/Hi ,

I have a problem with my Sony Xperia M Dual(C2004). After i flashed my phone does not work perfectly (errors with some application in sd card) and i decided to restore it to stock firmware. The firmware i am trying to use was already flashed other time and it work fine. But now, when i try to get into flashmode the green led light up for 1 second, then light off and stuck into flashmode. I have all drivers on my pc and it recognize the phone as SOMC flash device, but the green led is down and Flashtool not start flashing.... What can I do? Fastboot and recovery mode works fine.

Re: Can't put device into flashmode or fastboot mode.

Hi there, I have a solution, use a MACBOOK.

 

You turn on USB debugging, OEM unlock too in developer settings.

 

Turn off your phone completely

 

At the same time as holding the volume up plug in your phone to the MAC and the blue light should appear.

 

hey Presto 🎊

Re: Can't put device into flashmode or fastboot mode.

I realize this post is from 2013, but I had this same problem with a xperia xz with flashtool in 2018. Turns out, for me at least, the solution was mind-numbingly easy. When your device is making the 0.5 second green lights, it is in flashmode. It was just a matter of entering flashmode prior to starting the flash in flashtool, as the application would not reconize a device in flashmode if started when promted by the application.
