I have a strange problem with with my XZ while trying to flash any ftf. Here's the flashtool log; 25/037/2019 03:37:39 - INFO - Selected Bundle for Sony Xperia XZ(F8331). FW release : 41.3.A.2.192. Customization : Customized US 25/037/2019 03:37:39 - INFO - Preparing files for flashing 25/037/2019 03:37:40 - INFO - Please connect your device into flashmode. 25/037/2019 03:37:50 - INFO - Using Gordon gate drivers version 18.104.22.168 25/037/2019 03:37:51 - INFO - Opening device for R/W 25/037/2019 03:37:51 - INFO - Device ready for R/W. 25/037/2019 03:37:51 - INFO - Reading device information 25/037/2019 03:37:51 - INFO - Phone ready for flashmode operations. 25/037/2019 03:37:51 - INFO - Opening TA partition 2 25/037/2019 03:37:55 - INFO - Device connected in flash mode 25/057/2019 03:57:42 - INFO - Device disconnected The strange thing is that the phone does not actually get disconnected, windows doesn't even play the disconnection sound and the green light signifying flash mode stays on. I've tried flashing 2 different MM ftf files and 2 different Oreo files but it always stops at the same point. I cant use fastboot because my bootloader is still locked. I tried repairing with xperia companion but it always fails with basically no information. I feel like I can still rescue the phone because i have flash mode, fastboot mode and when i power on, it shows the Sony logo and then "software update failed". Also, the phone shows up as SOMC flash device when plugged in in flash mode(if that helps). Pls what do I do from here?
