Default [Q] How to flash stock rom/firmware on a bricked Xperia C?

After moded my xperia c to add bravia engine, I was stuck on boot animation. The phone was not in USB debugging mode since I was trying to mod it after a recent software update using sony pc companion. Tried flastool, SP Flashtool, SUS & Pc companion to repair it but everything just don't work. Is there any other way to repair it other than sending it to service centre?

Have you tried the "repair my phone/tablet" option on the pc companion? if not try it. it worked for me. turn-off your xperia c. make sure it's turned-off. open sony pc companion. connect your phone to your pc via usb. click on the start button on the support zone box/tab. click start on the phone/tablet software update. click the "repair my phone/tablet" link. the blue text with an underline. follow the onscreen instruction.

Try Sony Update Centre.. Just make sure your fastboot & flashboot drivers are properly

I had tried both of your suggestion but unfortunately it does not work for me. I end up sending it to Sony service centre yesterday. Finger crossed now and hope for the best.

sorry for being late
and i know op has got his phone repaired

but this is for the future usage

if any one who stuck at boot logo or any where and wants to reflash firware using sony tool

follow below steps

as our phone's batter is non removable its quite odd but once u understand its easy

first understand this

to use sony tool we have to connect our phone in flash mod to pc
and

and to do so remove back cover and connect your phone in any mod with pc via usb cable

and then press hardreset button

so that your phone will reboot and connect in charging mod

now remove data cable so your phone will turn off

now that your phone is turn off every thing is done

you just need to sony update tool open it and connect your phone in flash mod

and taadaa

its done
