[Q] Rooted x10a stuck at "se" screen; SEUS, Flashtool not helping. What's next?
Working on my wife's AT&T x10a. When she got it several months ago it came with 1.6, and I updated to 2.1 through PC Companion. She recently decided she wanted root, so yesterday morning I rooted with SuperOneClick 1.5.5, after trying a couple of newer versions with no success. Root Checker from Play Store confirmed root. She said she really wanted 2.2 or 2.3, so this morning I started looking at installing a new rom.
1. Installed Flashtool according to this thread.
It recognized my phone, and appeared to have the needed drivers. I installed CWM via Flashtool, again it appears successfully.
2. Using Flashtool, and the instructions and files in this thread
I attempted to install 2.3.3 via the Recovery method mentioned. It appeared to be going fine, I followed the instructions completely, but after step 13, when it's time to restart device, it loads the "sony ericsson" logo on the black screen, and hangs there. I left it for 15 minutes or so to see if anything happened, but nothing.
3. I then attempted to go back to stock 2.1 with SEUS, but it wants me to pull down the tray and hook up USB and tick Debugging. Well if the phone is stuck at boot there's no way for me to do that.
4. Attempted to flash x10a generic 2.1 from this thread
but ended up stuck at the se logo screen as in step 2 above.
At this point, I'm lost. I've been reading so many threads I'm having trouble keeping track of what I read and where I read it. I'm going to start from square 1, and re-read what I've gone through so far on the chance that I might have missed something. But in the meantime, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My wife is enormously patient about this, but it's her phone, and she really liked the little x10. I'd love to get it running for her again, stock 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, CM7, whatever it takes.
Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.
