[Q] Can't get Xperia V into flash mode
After having flashed CyanogenMod on my Xperia V, I now want to go back to stock ROM. I have downloaded and installed Flashtool, and also installed Sony Update Service.
The problem is that when I plug in the USB cable while holding volume down, the LED lights up green. After 4-5 seconds the LED goes off, and the phone goes into charge mode.
If I hold volume up while plugging in USB, the phone goes into fastboot (blue LED) with no problems at all. I also see the phone when doing a "fastboot devices".
So, how can I get the phone into flash mode?
Update: I have managed to get the phone to stay in flashmode for about 45 seconds if I push any of the hardware buttons after holding volume down and plug the USB. I believe this is not enough time to make the flash, so I haven't tried it in case I'm gonna brick it.
