Default [Q] Is there a way to boot up my Sony Xperia Tipo in recovery mode?

My xperia tipo smartphone won't boot up . I think this has to do with the build.prop file which is in the system directory. In an attempt to make my phone run Modern Combat 2, I downloaded a custom build.prop file from here and replaced it with the original one (I made a backup first in the sd card directory). Then I tried to reboot my phone, but now it won't boot . It only shows me the sony logo and stays there. Even after waiting an hour, still nothing. I've tried many ways to boot my xperia tipo in recovery mode, like holding down power button and Vol Up, or by pressing the screen repeatendly after the sony logo appears and MANY MORE, but no luck. I'M SO PISSED WITH MYSELF! Can anyone help?

DONATE TO ME
You could maybe try to install the stock rom over it. Flashtool + *.tft rom.

Sony phones do not have stock recovery, so unless you had installed cwm you don't have any recovery

I installed cm10 in my Sony Xperia Tipo, done everything correctly, but now I can't boot up my phone, and I can't go to fastboot mode to flash the default firmware. When I try to boot up, sometimes it does nothing, and sometimes it vibrates, but still nothing Any solution?

Remove battery from the device for 10-15 mins... Than put it in and directly put it in flashboot mode... Dont try to turn it on... Than you'll be able to reflash...

If I remember correctly, fxp152 build had corrupt boot.img. It won't boot.
Wtf are you doing with such an old build? Download new one and fastboot the boot.img , it will work fine.
