When I boot the device it just stays at the Sony screen and does not progress any further. I am still able to turn off the device by holding the power button and the volume up button, I can reset it by holding the button longer waiting for the vibration, and I can hard reset by waiting till the three vibrations.
What I was doing up to the point it happened.
I was trying to get a custom ROM on my device, I had it previously rooted so I thought I would go further. I installed CWM on my phone I wiped data, cache, and dalvick then I went to install the ROM from SD card. During the attempt at installation I got some symlink errors with a status of 7. Not sure what to do turned off the device when I decided to put back its previous I turned it back on and arrived at the problem.
What I have done to try and fix it.
I have done the soft and hard resets, I tried using the PC companions repair tool. When it asks me to turn the device off hold down the power button then plug in the device nothing happens(I have tried this several times.) I downloaded the flashtool and the correct ftf and tried using that, but it doesn't detect my device when I hold down the volume button and plug it in. So it seems that the flashboot is not working on my phone.
Any suggestions on what to try would be much appreciated and thanks in advanced.
