[Q] Bricked phone? used to work fine!
Currently my Xperia Z stopped working. I hadn't used it in a while, since the connector broke off. I got the connector fixed, and the phone seems to function, but it wont boot.
It boots to the SONY logo, and then goes black. The thing i have tried:
- Flash stock rom using Flashtool, i keep getting this:

Then i tried using Fastboot to install a new boot.img, which is succesfull
< waiting for device >
sending 'boot' (11048 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.355s]
OKAY [ 0.539s]
finished. total time: 0.902s
Press any key to continue . . .
I'm able to get into Fastboot and Flashmode so the USB seems to work fine. After using fastboot i got a litte further, now it boots to SONY, then i get "the software update failed, make sure that your phone is connected to the computer and try again."
I tried using EMMA, but i have no idea what to do there. It keeps "updating the services"
...service successfully prepared.
Sending data to the device...
...data sent successfully.
Service execution completed in 139 seconds
I also tried PC Companion which complains that i use unofficial software.
Anyone has any idea what else i can do?
