How do i rescue my bricked phone!

well the answer lies within this thread.
how do you brick a phone
well, there are many ways you can brick a phone.
1. you install the wrong software
2.you install a 'broken' rom
3. you install a recovery that isnt supported for our phone
4.or you were messing with your bootloader
etc etc... you get the point
how to rescue a bricked x8
1st: If you have done a soft brick then you can boot into xrecovery and restore your latest backup. easy
2:if restoring doesn'twork or you have a hard brick then you should either launch:SEUS (sony ericsson update service) or pc companion. click update and follow the steps.
3:if none of that works then you will have to send it off to se. if you dont get some kind of phone company to fix it then its as useless as a real brick lol or a replica of a phone.
3:you can use a flashtool to fix it as well. if you open flashtool you usally get a number of options such as unlock bootloader etc. there should be an option where you can restore it. (lol i think)
Cheers
i hope it helped. if it did then please do press the thanks button.

Soft Brick is the common brick we get.
Hard Brick is a brick you can only get with messing with the bootloader. There's no complete brick.

Say something about flashtool too.

On the W/X8 and X10 mini/Pro you can get into FLASH MODE by keeping the back button pressed while connecting the TURNED OFF phone by USB.

That being said, you have a NEO which doesn't work that way.

Your phone has "fastboot" - to get there ... turn off the phone, keep the bottom right key pressed and connect the USB cable to the PC.

What you have to do from there on out is either best asked in the RIGHT subforum or through Google research.
