Hi everyone, I'm having problems with flashtool, I would really appreciate if you could help me

I'm using Xperia Tipo, I have unlock bootloader: YES (haven't done the "IMEI thing" though) and the phone is rooted

I want to fastboot a kernel, but I just can't get the tool to enable fastboot mode, here you can see the log

02/040/2014 00:40:49 - ERROR - This action can only be done in fastboot mode


I have download drivers, I have installed them, I don't know what else to do, I just want to flash a new kernel in order to do some overclock to my phone

what can I do?

thank you in advance!

Don't connect in flash mode if you want to flash kernel. Connect in fastboot mode (hold volume up button)
Hit the you-know-what button if i helped

For fastboot mode, hold volume up instead of volume up.

Hi all, thank you for the answers

I'm sorry for posting the topic in the wrong section

the problem is that I press volume up (as to enter fastboot mode) and I select fastboot mode on the "thunder" icon, but the problem is that the phone only connects in flash mode, there is no way I can connect to fastboot, I press volume up, connect the USB and get the blue LED, but the tool says "flash mode" as seen above

Is your bootloader unlocked?

I have bootloader unlocked: YES, this was like this out of the box, I have done nothing with the IMEI and unlock BL, when I try to unlock it with flashtool I get "02/036/2014 19:36:49 - INFO - Your phone bootloader cannot be officially unlocked" I don't know how to unlock it then, I have also tried with SE Bootloader but when enterin my IMEI I don't get an unlock code and the tool freezes

So in the service menu you have Bootloader Unlock allowed: yes?

That's strange. Unlocking the boot loader should work. Are you absolutely sure it can be unlocked?

Indeed, the service menu says "Bootloader Unlock Allowed: YES", I don't know what can it be, I have installed many drivers, different versions of flashtool, tried different programs, I have obtained the "IMEI related" number that SONY sent me, but even so, I just can't seem to unlock my bootloader, I'm root, I'm just trying to overclock the CPU but I can't since I can't get my phone to enter fastboot mode because I can't unlock the bootloader
