Unhappy [Q] stuck at boot :(

can someone please help me, its an emergency. i have stock 4.3 with unlocked bootloader.
i wanted to root it so i used flashtool to flash boot.img like it says here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2573921

but when i flashed it i flashed it with the wrong seting, i chose select kernel to flash by accident then used that to flash the boot.img also i didnt put the superSU zip on my sd card before hand.

i then re flashed the boot.img with the "select system to flash" option and it installed the recovery fine.

so now i can boot into recovery but the phone will not come on as normal. i am just stuck at the sony screen.

i then went to try an re flash original stock ftf, but that is not being recognised by flashtool for some reason.

please help me
thank you

Can you not wipe the phone in recovery and reset it?

Power down the device for at least 10 minutes.

Get back in to recovery and tick "wipe cache partition" option and select it.

Go to the recovery main menu and reboot the device “reboot system now” option.

Try this..

I did that too. I also wiped dalvik and tried to reboot the phone. It was just staying on the sony logo. How long does the sony logo stay there after s boot like that? Also I dont understand why flashtool is not recognising the stock ftf files?

Hmm, not sure. Does the computer recognise it when you plugged it in? I'm looking in to some guides for you.

Sound like you have a bootstall.
