SE x10 doesn't turn on !
Hello, guys !
My old Sony Ericsson x10 stopped working 4 months ago and back then I tried everything I could think of to fix it myself, without luck though. Today I decided to give it another last try. I think the phone just shat down by itself back then, but sadly I don't remember much of the details. I was using Advanced Xperia X10i ROM and it was working fine, I didn't get any errors during the flashing or while I was running it. And yes, the phone was rooted / with unlocked bootloader.
When I press the power button the phone vibrates for half a sec or less and that's it, the screen doesn't light up or anything. When I connect the phone to a charger or PC the green light comes on, I haven't seen it turn red so far.
This is the s1tool log I get when I 'identify' the phone.
RUNNING S1_EROM VER "r8A033"
SOFTWARE AID: FFFF
LOADER AID: DEAD
FATAL ERROR [ SECURITY_CLASS, SIN_header_verification_failed ]
error while uploading HDR block
LOADER NOT STARTED
When I try to flash stock or any firmware with flashtool I get an error too.

So I cannot flash any firmware or enter recovery mode because the phone doesn't turn on.
It seems the problem comes from that 'sin header' , whatever that is. I noticed that flashtool has a Sin Editor in the Tools, but I have no idea what to do with that.
I've seen 30+ posts with the same "SIN header verification failed" problem but I didn't find a solution in them, that's why I'm asking.
