Mate he is specific that he changed build.prop,he cannot flash custom Rom without unlocking bootloader.
P.S : I had this problem but I restored it from CWM restore.he still has chances to get it repaired.

This ain't the samsung forums. If you have fastboot then flash doomkernel to get recovery ( C5303 Ftfs work with C5302 )

Xperia Z1 Compact/Xperia SP/Xperia J ( sold V )

Bootloader Status: locked
No custom ROMs ever flashed, just rooted the phone.
Took it to customer care center today, they were like the motherboard is ****ed up.
They've taken it under warranty for now. They're gonna replace the motherboard, they said.

Hope they never find out what actually happened and I get it all covered under warranty

The phone wouldn't boot in any of the modes: Normal, Fastboot, Flashmode.
It would reset/go into bootloop seconds after I boot it into any mode.

I've had this issue, it's difficult but I managed, hold the down button for flashmode, press reset button, as soon as you release it plug phone in as fast as you can! Takes me a few tries but it should work unless you did something really really bad

If you don't want it ROOTED then DONT LEAVE IT WITH ME!
