Unhappy [Q] Xperia L Bricked

Hi Friends,

My Xperia L looks bricked and i am having no idea whether it is Hard or soft brick.

I am unable to turn it on and when i connect it to the charger it is showing 1 blink of green LED and after that 1 blink of red LED.
After that no LED, no vibration when power button pressed, no SONY logo.
Even i charged my XL for 1hr and it is showing no LED.

Yesterday i flashed C2104_15.3.A.0.26_India.ftf and everything was working fine.
I have unlocked my bootloader and flashed kernel Phantom v7-JB.

After installing the kernel, my XL looks bricked.

When i try to again install stock FTF via flashtool i am getting error ERR_DYNAMIC="0x80080021

Hm it says device connected in flash mode so it may not be a hard brick. Once it disconnects try reconnecting it in flash mode instantly? report back if the process continues or gives out an error.

Do you have another usb cable or computer available? If so try it again. The problem might be your usb cable or computer.

hi,

i have tested with other Laptop and with other USB cable. Same result observed..

I think because of power button is not working.... so is the volume down key... and due to that when volume down key is pressed during flashing with flashtool...... it is always showing in connected mode i.e Device connected in flash mode.

we are not entering into Flashing process or may be i am wrong.

Please help

I'm not too sure. But it said it was about to begin flashing, that means flashboot mode seems to be working. People with a hard brick weren't able to enter flash mood at at all. I'm not sure what's the problem sorry, but I don't think you have a hard brick. Can you enter recovery mode? Hold the volume up button once the led turns purple when it boots. I'm only asking because you did say, you flashed phantom kernel.

Try using another ftf. Maybe the latest one.
