* put sd card in tablet and select to apply updates from _hack_recovery.zip
* This will fail, but after that you can give "adb shell" command from computer to gain shell access
* run /system/bin/tempsu to gain root user access (this will work only if u had root before u try the update)
* mount /system as RW and copy the correct region.zip

hope this helps.. i had the same issue, and i unbricked like this..
Hey I'm in almost the same position... but this method didn't work for me.
I have a Sony Tablet S, rooted R5a (has been working fine for months) but suddenly it now gets stuck on the startup animation after the logo. USB debugging was disabled before it got bricked All I can do is boot into recovery mode. I tried factory reset (wipe data, cache, etc) but it didn't help. I tried updating stock r5a, pre-rooted r5a, and a few other verions from zip files in sdcard but all give the same "version/sku" error. The _hack_recovery I guess deosn't work for me because the tablet wasn't in USB debugging mode?
Is it possible to make any custom zip with a version number >121116036? Please? Anyone? If I can try to flash such a zip and it still fails then I'll know I have to send it to Sony...

Quick update: I sent it back to Sony. They did indeed replace a motherboard part. It came back factory reset and downgraded to the original honeycomb version. Took 1 week in total from collection to delivery... they paid for everything!
