Thought I would have a little play with putting a custom rom on my rom,

don't know where I went wrong but I killed the hell outta my phone, its completely dead.

If I press the volume button it just keeps vibrating

if u press down volume I get a green and blue light for a sec the off

if I press the volume up I get a solid blue light.

Any advice would be great if anyone has experienced this

Thank uuuuuu

You need to look up Sony fastboot and what the colors mean. One is fastboot mode so you can flash via USB using android tools, ie boot loader mode.

Haha I experienced that before. Mine "died" too and no one offered me solutions here=(.. just use flashtool and flash a stock firmware and you are good to go.

Are you running 32 or 64 bit? If 64,disable driver signature enforcement either by f8 at boot for win7 or advanced start up options for win8/.1

Easier way
On Windows 8 or 8.1 you might get error while installing drivers (X instead of tick).
How to fix this, open command prompt as admin and run the codes below then attempt to install again
bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON

You can use 'enable' in first command and 'OFF' in second command later. Cheers!
