I've tried all drivers, none worked, and the flashtool keeps suggesting I should update my drivers when connecting the phone on flash mode:
Is there any way I can recover from this through fastboot instead of the flashtool? I can still flash system.img and recovery.img through fastboot. I'd really appreciate any help right now.
Xperia phones do not have a recovery partition to flash recovery to via fastboot.
If you can enter fastboot, then flash a stock kernel.elf with flashtool (In fastboot mode).
Then you can use flashtool to relock your boot (I imagine you have not even taken a TA backup and you are new to xperia devices, your post suggests so)
then you should be able to use pccompanion to repair, or flashtool to flash a FTF
However, by flashing a recovery image you may have bricked the phone. try what I have said, if it does not work get back in touch. (Do you have access to jtag and setool?)
