Hi, i have xperia V (protoype). It was working fine, until i decide to put new Android (i was 4.0.4 on it). I don't have much of experience in flashing, but i did success already with my two other phones (ARC and P ), so i thought this time will be easy as usually. but...
phone was dead as stone..i spend more than week to trying all methods what i was able to find. now it's a big mess in my head and my PC, but now i made phone to start in recovery menu. thats all. tried install different roms, cyanomodgens-nothing... it just shows me SONY-->cyanomodgen and freez. at the moment flashtool can't see my phone.
if anyone can help me what to do( step by step), how to make this phone working again -i will be very happy person.
sorry for english.

Wipe Data + Cache + System + Dalvik

just make it clear.. is it menu when need to press volume button when "sony" appears on the screen?
i can't tell you exactly how i did it- i did it with flashboot (boot.img or something), don't remember. didn't touch the phone for week, because i don't know what and how to do. as i said, i need step-by-step advice from beginning. if anyone will help me-i will be sooo happy

1. Is your bootloader unlocked - and did you test if your BL is/was unlockable?

If BL is unlocked correctly:

2. Try to flash another kernel in recovery,such as http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2223534
Then try to install a CM-ROM for example.
