Do not flash Relock Bootloader in Flashtool.
I am posting this message as a preventive measure for all those Xperia mini and mini pro users( might be applicable for all Xperia devices). Please do not try and relock the bootloader as an experiment or by mistake..Cause this will brick your device.
I did that yesterday and have submitted my device to repair shop today as it is not responding to any of the below-
1. Charging - I tried charging it for around 14-15 hours
2. SEUS - I tried updating software using Sony PC Companion andc SEUS update service.
3. Flashtool - It does not recognizes your device when connected.
It is completely dead with no sign of vibration, light or noise..I have read in the forum that it needs to be JTAG now which requires external device, which if purchased is very costly.
To be safe delete the X10_V1_BLRelock.ftf from your C drive --> Flashtool-->Firmware folder.
Hope this post will help many developers who are willing to experiment with their device not knowing its consequences completely...just like me
