You don't boot it through adb. You boot it through fastboot. They aren't the same thing. But I'm glad you were able to figure it out.

Not with an unresponsive phone. I'd say your only option is jtag. Not sure why you thought this would work on your device.

That's what happen when people DON'T read before they jump head first into something they have never done. That is why it is "ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO READ EVERYTHING FIRST". But as they say "Live & Learn" -$$$📵

First sentence of first post of this thread reads:
This is for m8, it will not work on m7 or any other device

Pretty clear you did not have the proper knowledge, and never should have tried this without reading everything and understanding (as others have mentioned). There is no reason you should have thought this would work on your phone. You need to be extremely cautious about applying any mod meant for another device. At best, the mod will probably not work, at worst you get a brick (as you now know).

This was just wrong for so many reasons:

- Sony and HTC don't use the same methods to lock/unlock their bootloaders
- No such thing as s-off on a Sony device
- The method involves changing a very specific piece of data at a specific location. Different devices store data in completely different locations. Modify the wrong data in the wrong place (on any device) and you can BRICK.
