Now it wont boot past the sony logo and I cant shutdown the phone. holding power does nothing tried holding it for over 30 seconds still nothing.
The phone has been stuck at the sony logo for over an hour and is starting to get very very warm.
Does anyone know how I can shutdown the phone to prevent damaging the battery/cpu? Have I hard bricked the phone? I hope flash tool can detect the phone at the sony logo because I can't shutdown to even boot to flash mode
I Do not have access to a computer at the moment.
Thanks in advance.
Hold Power and Volume Up. That should shut the phone off. If that doesn't work, try the off switch next to the USB Port.
When you do get access to a computer, download SUS and do a software repair to restore your phone to stock (only for locked bootloader). Alternately, you can download a stock .ftf file for your Z2 and flash it via flashtool.
Your phone is not hard-bricked, it is soft bricked. Hard Bricked means that the phone turns into an expensive paperweight dummy handset.
Hope this helps
