So i have an xperia m2, model D2303 running android version 18.0.C.1.13, which is essentially 4.3

I unlocked its bootloader, so far so good
Then i get into a bootloop
However, i did not panic since i knew it would happen
So, I decide to flash the same android version as above
But, flashtool does not have the flashmode drivers for this device... I tried installing all the drivers, but despite the installation being succesful, flashtool still says i need to install drivers...

Any ideas?

just press the reset button next to the sim card slot and it will load the driver s and try flashing again .

Well, it did install some drivers but although it goes into flashmode, it won't stay there, which means that the flashmode drivers aren't installed... This is the real problem i think
