Default [Q] Xperia U Bricked - Need Help!

Hello everyone, this is my first post.

I have a bricked Xperia U. I tried to put a custom ROM but something went wrong, and now my phone it's stuck on the "Sony" logo, doing nothing, cannot even enter in CWM.

I tried to put a stock firmware with Flashtool (I've installed the necesarely drivers from flashtool/drivers), but it gives me an error.
I noticed that if I enter in flash mode, an error it's popping up saying that the "device is not recognized".

Here is the log:

Thanks for your response. I tried with like 3-4 other ROMS, but it also do the same. I don't think that's the problem.

L.E: I've managed to flash my stock ROM! I used Flashtool on Win 7, first I tried to use Flashtool in Win 8, but the drivers won't install even with the driver signature trick. In Win 7 worked after 1st try!

If you have unlocked bootloader you can try to flash a custom rom kernel. These kernels have already got CWM/TWRP installed so you won't have problems
