flash the firmware again, and when you plug in the phone, hold the volume down button only, you dont have to hold the power one, it should go into flash mode now

unplug the cable from your phone, then hold the vol + and power till vibrates three times. now your phone is off,
lunch flashtool and initiate the flashing process with ICS firmware and hold vol - and plug the phone in, see if that works.

Sony developer on the forum believe that no one could hardly brick a Sony phone.

Hello!
It appears I have the same issue with xperia pro. After flashing the official 4.0.4 rom with flashtool the log says:
Code:
27/032/2012 15:32:18 - INFO  - Flashing finished.
27/032/2012 15:32:18 - INFO  - Please wait. Phone will reboot
27/032/2012 15:32:18 - INFO  - For flashtool, Unknown Sources and Debugging must be checked in phone settings
27/032/2012 15:32:18 - INFO  - Device connected in flash mode
The phone doesn't respond, the green led is on.
Have you been able to restore the phone functioning?

Ah, it's okay. I re-flashed the phone with a different rom and now it is working fine.
