Default Bricked my phone

It's the Sony Xperia Mini Pro. I tried to root it about a year and a half ago and when I couldn't figure out how to boot it into fastboot so I just tried the rooting tool without flashing the proper ROM that they told me to. It caused the phone to be bricked. Currently if I try to turn it on it'll boot up with no display and restart over and over again until I have to remove the battery. Any ways to get it working again?

So, the phone vibrates when you turn it on?
LED blinks?
Anything?

If yes, just connect in flash mode, open Flashtool and flash stock.
A little advice, try to post it here.
Can I get legal issues if I name a custom ROM like "Jelly Beans (sweetened with Splenda)"? Serious question. D:

Moto G (Stock KitKat 4.4.2)
Xperia Sola (Paranoid Android 1.6 - 4.0.4 ICS)

Currently busy because of college works and stuff, so I afk, sorry folks.
