[Q] OTA Update failed....I can't flash latest stock firmware on Xperia Neo
First of all, if I am in any way repeating something written somewhere else, I am sorry but I am quite newbie here and, even if I searched around this forum, I couldn't find any info about my specific problem.
This said, to the problem!
I have an Xperia Neo (europe) with 2.3.3 Android and yesterday I was signaled of a OTA update available. I then switched on Wifi, connected the phone to the power cable and started the update. After downloading everything, the phone rebooted and showed me an updating screen.
After a while, though, the phone turned off and....well, it didn't turn on anymore!
No sign of life from the battery led either!
Now, after some stunned panicking seconds, I started googling and came at this thread:
and downloaded the last version of Flashtool from:
and the latest stock firmware ( MT15i_4.0.2.A.0.42_GLOBAL.7z ) from:
....I tried to flash the firmware with FlashTool and the operation completed, but when I try to turn the phone on now I just see a quick green blinking of the power led and then nothing else.
I tried to take out the battery, and also tried to flash an older (2.3.3) firmware, but the problem didn't go away.
Now, the phone is in warranty, not rooted and everything....I could bring it to Sony, but it would take 15 to 30 days to them, so I just wandered if there was anything I was doing wrong and that, if corrected, could save me a lot of time and efforts.
Thank you guys a lot!
