Unhappy CM install gone wrong

Hi guys...

The problem:
No display output at all, even during boot. Just a blank (off) screen. LED seems OK, and I can browse the files on my computer (I think it's still booting OK, just no display)

The cause:
Flashed a (dodgy?) CM11 zip. I believe I flashed the Z1 instead of the Z1C version .

What I've done:
Previously, I rooted it, installed CWM (dual recovery) with fast boot.

What I've tried:
ADB devices: shows it as offline?
If I CAN boot into CWM, I can't see any display so that doesn't help me much
Sony Companion software can't see the device (maybe because it's not a Sony ROM?)

Any thoughts? Sorry - I've searched but usually you can at least see or use the screen!

Just realised I can get into fastboot (blue LED). Will try to update the zip via that once I D/L the fastboot driver.

People who prefix thread titles with [Q] then post in General instead of Q&A usually haven't fully read instructions. Extract the kernel from the zip and flash it using fastboot.

Feel free to move this to the correct forum, I've removed the [Q] from the title.

Or how about just sticking to the instructions for your phone?
