I tried some swap script in init.d folder on my vengeance kernel, but after reboot (or what should be reboot) my xperia tipo didn't boot at all. Hell, it didn't even try lol
So, I tried everything: removing and inserting battery, power and vol+ pressed for reset, fastboot and flash mode on pc with vol+/vol- pressed and connecting USB, but no feedback at all- no vibration, no green or blue led, no ˝device conneced˝ in flashtool log, not even red led when charging with wall charger!
Only thing that still gives me hope is 3 red led flashing when holding power button, indicating very low power level, I suppose. This is the one and only feedback and sign of life from my phone and it's not showing when pressed power button while connected on wall charger or USB.
I have this phone on wall charger for last 3+ days, with no changes in described condition and behaviour, it had 'round 20% battery when gone brick.
I've read tens of threads involving xperia bricks, but they mostly involve removing cable connnecting motherboard and battery in order for chips to lose power and reset as condition for flashtool and stuff, BUT i figure it's for phones which battery can't be pulled out easily- which is not the case with my tipo st 21i
So, guys, PLEASE help me revive my beloved phone, if it is possible.
Be saluted, and help meee
Also, it had:
-gimlo rom v2.1
-vengeance kernel latest version for tipo-tapioca
-and, of course, unlocked bootloader
I decided to try decharging battery completely. I did rubber band trick on bower button untill red led flashing 3 times then pause 1 sec stopped completely. Then I set flashtool for only kernel flashing - excluded everything but kernel - did rubber band trick on Vol- this time and connected with USB. Red led started flashing 1 time every 3 seconds for roughly 10 minutes, with no results. After that flashing stopped again, just like on wall charger. When removing USB and holding power button I can see 3 red flashes consecutively, then 1 sec pause and so on.
My hope is dying slowly, if there is anybody with any idea, please help me.
Be saluted all
