Hey guys,

I've got the xperia z tablet (16gb wifi only)

and I had unlocked it, the other day I saw it finally got an OTA update, so I let it update.

apparently that was a bad idea?, I was stuck with the broken android symbol every time i attempted to start the tablet..

I tried the sony software, the recovery thing it has. That has only made things worse, now the tablet refuses to start whatsoever.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'd appreciate it very much.

My tablet won't give me so much as an led indicator of it charging.

Hi
I had the same issues when I flashed the wrong ROM. Nothing worked no power light or anything.

Now I can't remember exactly what I did but I started to press buttons and I'm sure that holing the power button and the vol up for a while made it start again and it displayed an error and then went into flash mode .

As I said I'm not sure which buttons I pressed but I know that I held them in for a while

Try using Flashtool... Im pretty sure you can rcover it by flashing a FTF file.

I think I found the testpin. My sgp311 has started to blink after being dead since November, when I bricked it.

I don't have the device pack though.. Do you have any clue on how to find it? I think I just need the sgp311 SEMC package to resuscitate it now... Hopefully...
