Have you tried flashing with the 'remove customisations' enabled? Not sure that this will help, but worth a try. Avoid 'wipe data'.
If it's hanging at boot after a flash of new rom then it's possibly hardware fault, a device failing, that is causing the freeze. the only way to resolve that is to send it back to Sony.
Was the freeze after a failed flash or mod of some kind?
If not then Sony should fix it under warranty.
Don't know what else to suggest, sorry.

Have you actually done 'reset customizations' ? The author of flashtool says it's factory reset: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1973

I think my previous post was wrong and 'Wipe data' (aka userdata.sin) actually wipes the whole userdata partition (which is mounted on /data, pictures are in /data/media).

Hi, with the impression that we had no other choice, we flashed the latest stock rom through flashboot with "DATA" ticked.

Fortunately the phone now boots, but unfortunately the photos are gone. Tried using Recuva, but it seems that's not possible over MTP, and internal storage is only avaiable through MTP.

Is there anything at all we can try now, or should we just settle with having lost the photos?
