Thumbs up Try this!
If you have not unlocked your bootloader then try using Sony update service (SUS).Just google for it.If in case you still face problem then I suggest you to use flashtool by Bin4ry to flash ur stock firmware ,not the Emma tool by Sony. Btw you have not mentioned whether your phone is rooted or not.Anyway Here is the link to the flashtool.

Also refer to this post below for more instructions about flashing stock firmware through flashtool.
