Try different version of flashtool. Check if your ftf file is okay or not. Did you check USB debugging and unknown sources?

If everything fails, use Wotanserver. I restored my bricked Active this way.

We have 4 method to flash the device :
1. Update service
2. PC Companion
3. Flashtool
4. Wotan server

If none of them succed, then it's look like your internal memory got some bad block.
If you have unlocked or patched bootloader, you can check it using fastboot command :

fastboot erase [partition]

Replace [partition] with cache,userdata or system
