Xperia arc S Ultimate HD 3.0.1 HARD BRICK WON'T BOOT WON'T CONNECT
Hello everyone. I know that before I should create a thread I should search the site more to see if there are similar threads. I have but unfortunately I've only found a few with no solutions.
This is about my phone which I flashed Ultimate HD 3.0.2 last June(mid). Everything was going well. I didn't have to restart my phone as much as when I had cyanogenmod. Last Sunday while trying to take a photo my phone died because of low battery. When I got home I charged it but would only get stuck at the Sony logo. To sum it up.
- When turned on/charged, the arc s would only get stuck at the Sony logo(no red LED light). The screen would get brighter, then dimmer, then blank, then go back to the Sony logo. I 'd gladly boot to CWM but nothing happens no matter what button I press. (Maybe I'm doing it wrong? No one clearly knows how to boot into bloody CWM. Almost everyone seems to say, errrr keep pressing back/menu/volume down/power after the Sony logo appears. If someone could clear it up on how to really boot into CWM, that would be great thanks)
- Tried Flashtool, PC companion, SEUS, but the phone also seems to have connectivity problems with the pc. It would slightly detect it then disconnect again. I try to flash a different kernel using Flashtool, the phone's LED turns blue(clearly indicating that it's in fastboot mode), but when I select a kernel, flashtool claims that I have to be in fastboot mode even when my phone's LED is blue.
I can't use any of the 3 tools(SEUS, PC, Flashtool) because it can't even be detected by the pc.(BTW I've fully charged the battery using an independent charger)
I fear this is a hardware problem but I hope it can be fixed. I'd really appreciate help. I've missed college to fix my phone just like I have before but this one won't budge. Thanks.
