Question [Q] Stuck (while doing a factory reset). Help needed.

I don't know if it takes this long for XperiaZ to reset. It has been more than 15 minutes but it is stuck at the screen I have posted below. Should I wait and if it's really stuck any workaround to the problem would be highly appreciated....

Just wait. Phone is repairing itself. Must be some file corruption. Can take minutes, or even hours.....

Has it happened to you. If it stays the same even after hours is there a workaround? One more question, in what mode is it right now?

I'm rarely on any firmware long enough to develop any file system issues - nothing like a good flash with a full wipe to clean everything up
But I have read that it will eventually sort itself out.
Has it finished and rebooted yet?

Edit: It is in some sort of repair mode. Not sure if it has an official name.
If you cant wait, you can try flashing an ftf with wipe data unticked in flashtool.

Nope. Will Sony update service help. By good flash you mean flashing via Flash Tool?

Update:-

Guess What, I connected the USB and than pressed Volume UP + Power Button and than pressing Volume Down key and Sony update service detected the device. Will update the post soon.

No problem. If you have dual recovery, try TWRP next time. Cwm has a habit of corrupting cache partition on locked bootloader.

Noted. But I have a locked bootloader with no root. Will try TWRP only as dual recovery doesn't sound promising (I might be wrong).
