Somewhere 5,5 hours later the situation is the same.
But I think I found out how it changes from the red led to the charging screen.
When it is at the red led state the phone tries to boot on its own. It then freezes on the sony logo and turns off with no red led but with the charging screen enabled (on power button press). By the way the charging screen shows the same battery level (minimum). And some hour later it goes back to the red led.

I tried something else only moments ago. While the phone was at the "charging screen" state I pressed the power button. I got one vibrate and the phone attempted to boot. It went straight to the Xperia logo and then started the graphics. But after several repetitions of the graphics it turned off and went back to "red led" state.

Are we sure it is charging or that even the led will eventually change colours?
According to Toledo_JAB he waited 51 hours for his battery to dry out (while NOT plugged in) and then started to charge.

The problem of ur charger is the mAh not the volt. I relief my phone with a 2000 mAh charger because the Sony charger have 800 mAh and made by me a red bootloop.

So what gives? I am currently leaving it aside (unplugged) for its battery to die out completely.
You say I should get a charger with more mAh and attempt to charge it?

That's what the man says. Sorry for giving the advice. I too meant the mAh, just didn't know that wasn't called voltage

Latest update:

1) I got a new charger of 1000 mAh (1 Ampere) which was the more powerful I could find.
2) In order to connect in flashmode I unplugged the battery and connected to my pc.
3) I then flashed the latest stock rom 12.1.A.1.201.
4) Then I plugged in my new charger.

So after about 16 hours of constant I get the following loop:

Red led --> momentarily green led --> bootloop on sony logo --> turn off --> no led and charging screen --> back to red led.

All of the above happen with the phone plugged in the charger with the charger on the mains socket and the charging screen appears when pressing on the power button and shows the same as before minimum (red) level of battery.

I really don't know what to make of it.

How do I do that?

There is no recovery option on the stock ftf.

I had flashed the doomlord's advanced stock kernel in order to access the cwm recovery but it was then pointed out to me that the said kernel may include the offline charging bug.
So I flashed the stock ftf as I described earlier.

Hello again!

After many MANY attempts I finally gave up on my phone.
I delivered it to an authorized sony service centre and waiting for (up to 10 working days!!!) a motherboard replacement.

By the way it's 148 euro.

Lovely.
