That is common and you should be able to fix it. If all you did was try to root it, I'm not quite sure what failed. This happens sometimes if you try to put a new operating system (ROM) on the device but something goes wrong.

And PC companion doesn't detect your device?

If not...there is another Sony Ericsson program called SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Companion). Use that instead and tell it to repair your phone. To do so, you connect your phone to the PC, press the power button at the top of the phone AND the middle (menu) button on the front together...then your phone resets. If you have SEUS ready, it will connect your phone, your phone won't boot, SEUS will repair it. The light at the top of the phone will be green if this is working correctly.

Hi, i just bought bricked x10 mini for 20 bucks. I has no sign of life, no led indicator, etc. It's not detected by seus. I also disassembly it to check physical damage( i didn't find any damages).
Phone just won't turn on. Lets check if 2hours charging is working for my case.

Yes, try the charging thing. Sony Ericsson told me to do this by email. I had no idea that smartphones worked like that, but yes. It could have life but not show for 2 hours of charging. (They said DON'T try to turn on the phone while it's trying to charge in this case).

If none of that works then try more extreme methods, like the one I mention with the white cable.

Good luck!

Thank you for the tip phoneyericsson!

I didn't find it hard to do -- I pulled off the ruber thing with a nail, and tweaked out the plug with some small scissors.

I was stuck at the SE logo, and couldn't turn of my phone or enter CWR. I wanted to set it back to standard using SEUS. Instead of using the method mentioned in option 2 here, I simply pulled the white plug to the battery, which turned of the phone. Then I inserted it again and the phone stayed off. Then I simply did as SEUS asked, and now I'm back running, ready to get CMmini on my device again!
