1.Download and install Flashtool on your PC.
2.Download the firmware you need (from the list below) and move it into the directory C:/Flashtool/firmwares
3.Open Flashtool, click on the lightning symbol ("flash device"), select "Flashmode" and click on "OK"
4.Just select the name of what you downloaded and click on "Flash"
5.Wait for a window to pop up (it may take a few minutes, be patient)
6.Now everything is ready: turn off your phone
7.Push the volume-down button, keep pushing and connect to your PC
8.Once the flashing process has started, release the volume rocker as soon as possible
9.NEVER disconnect the USB cable until it's finished!!!
10.Turn on and enjoy!

IMPORTANT:
if you are using Windows 8 you will need to enable few things to allow driver installation
If you are a Windows 8.1 user, you must see this video

Phone will not switch on ...
Tried unlocking the boootloader following instructions from the Sony website,
after "sucessfully" unlocking the bootloader in flashboot mode the phone got stuck in a boot loop.
Eventually stopped the phone boot looping by pressing all the buttons at the same time, have now found out it is the two volume buttons and the power button, then the phone did not switch on at all, tried connecting and holding volume button etc, to USB but all that comes up in device manager is "unknown device" and the flash tool does not recognise it in any mode, found out that holding the power button down for five minutes reboots the phone. Then flashed with above firmware and ended up in another bootloop, holding the up volume and power button makes the phone vibrate once then three times, let go after one and then you can get into flashmode, this time I flashed the latest firmware from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2762296 and it worked.

Exclamation Help please?
Hi man, I need your help urgently... I tried flashing kernel image to my Xperia M2 D2303, but I got impatient as recovery mode wasn't coming on and I did in in fastboot mode instead. Now it's stuck on boot loop and the screen only flashes. I can't get it to connect to my computer either, my computer just doesn't recognize it anymore. So, I can't flash anything on to it to recover it now either, and I tried putting files into my SD card to restore from but those files won't show when I try to download from zip using Clockwork Mod. What should I do?
Update
I tried to flash a custom rom into it, but even though I remember turning USB debugging on, it seems it's off. And plus, the drivers link you gave don't include the Xperia m2 drivers.
