Any patient helper would be appreciated.
my device is seemingly on an initial google view followed by a 'the software update failed'. Make sure your device is connected to the computer and try again'.
So this all follows me trying to flash the OTA link (I got elsewhere) via Androxide Sony Mobile flasher.The 'app cant open the bundle', the the device disconnects.
So I THEN (dumb I know), go to XDA and find this thread about righteous ways to do things.
The device has the dual kernel right now, that just i put on via Androxide to get to recovery...wouldnt go there otherwise.(i know I have to put stock kernel back on).
So anyone, phone is stuck on the Google icon. I take it the Androxide tool is of no use? I have no adb knowlege.
Please tell me where to go from here...(been around XDA for ages but am still out of my league with this stuff....so talk to me as you would an idiot!
I have stock kernel, dual kernel and OTA link on PC.
