Default Bricked Sony Xperia Z1!! Need help urgently!!!

So I was flashing a custom rom in CWM and it was just about to reboot when it said that it could not find the root files and asked if I wanted to install them. I clicked yes and now its stuck on the Sony sign. I can't turn it off or anything.

I tried using flash tool but it said i had to turn it off and go into flashmode which I have no way of doing.

Please help ASAP

This is not a brick, it is just a bootloop. i think, you didn't wiped data / cache ?! just flashed the zip?!

If you flash a rom with cwm, that is another rom then your actual one, then you will have to wipe data / cache.
So first go to CWM and wipe data / factory reset. then try to boot again.


If you need flashmode:
Turn off device (if it is stuck, press and hold Power + VolUp)
Then hold VolDown and connect the usb cable



PS: for the next time, try reading the pinned posts in dev forums before you ask such questions, cause this is BASIC KNOWLEDGE for flashing a device.

hmm you dont need to reinstall ... the important thing is WIPE DATA ... Android leaves files on the data partition that may not be compatible with the new rom and that then is a bootloop or other problems with the new rom. so everytime you flash a new rom, wipe data!
