Re: bricked

Have you unlocked the bootloader or flashed a different kernel?

Re: bricked

Hi! Today I tried to upload my phone, from android 2.3.4 to the 4.0.4 version. I used Flashtool, and it worked well untill it ask me to upload the kernel to 4.1.B.0.587, it had the 4.1.B.0.431. I let it upload by it self when it suddenly shut off and now it doesn't turn on. The LED light green when I charge it but the screen doesn't light or anything. I tried to use Flashtool again, it detects the phone in flash mode, but no more. The Sony PC Companion doesn't work, it doesn't identificate the phone as LT18i, only detects a Sony dispositive.

 

I used the Upade Service ( http://www.sonymobile.com/gb/tools/update-service/ ), and the phone vibrated a little bit, but it didn't turn up. Slightly frowning Face

I'm charging it again. May I wait?
