So I had a custom firmware on my Z1C and I followed a tutorial and how to go back to stock firmware.I followed the instructions and now my phone is hard bricked. My phone's led lights either flashes red, does one short flash of red and then one long one, or when it's plugged into a wall charger it's green. I tried all different variations on turning on the phone but it won't simply turn on. There were other tutorials on using Sony Companion and other updaters but that didn't work because everytime I'd plug my phone in. My PC recognizes an ADB driver but the it says it failed.

I think this would help me fix it but I don't quite understand how to do this. I already opened up my phone but can someone please explain on how to do this.

I tried using this link and the one I provided before combined but I think I need certain downloads or something to do it.

Can someone basically just show me how I can unbrick my phone the way using the test point and GND. Please, my phone really needs to come back, and It'd be cool if you showed me how to go back to the official stock rom too. HELP ME PLEASE

Would be good to know which custom rom you had, which tutorial you followed and which rom you installed to brick it

That sucks man, are you gonna buy a new one? I mean a bricked phone is per definition not fixable.


...So is it really bricked or did you just **** up and want help with it? Change your topic.
