Well, i've flashed the ftf file downloaded directly from xperifirm {E2306_26.3.A.0.131_R2C_Customized GEL_1294-3902}
-update-
some mysterious, magical stuff hapened and i entered fastbootmode
can boot recovery and boot.img from fastboot and now everything is fine
<3
thanks everyone


then, i've try to install root (following a tutorial for this device and this comp.) but i could not enter to FASTBOOT MODE
try using:
- (vol+) + (plug the phone)
-(power btn) + (vol+) + (plug the phone)
-(power btn) + (vol+) + (vol-) + (plug the device)
and the only thing that happened is: -Vibrate + sony logo ---> normal boot
----
Then i try to enter fastboot using the adb command {ADB REBOOT-BOOTLOADER}
but it just reboot normally (sony logo and then start normally)
[[ADB do recognize my device and all drivers were properly installed; but can't enter to fastboot mode]]
---
I've try to reflash my device again, but then i couldn't be able to enter to flashmode
{ with the device off; press vol- and then connect to usb}
after several attempts using - [(power btn) + (vol-)] i entered flashmode and reflash my device...
----
then i activate dev mode: [usb debuggin and OEM UNLOCK]
and try to get to fastboot mode, but the same results...
i got my device recognized by {ADB DEVICES}
but can't get fastboot
-----
Then the user who's helping me told me to reflash using this config
[in excludes section check all except AMSS_FSG, AMS_FS1, AMS_FS2,BOOT DELIVERY, KERNEL. Don't check anything else.]
But i can't get flashmode now... i try all the combinations, try in ubuntu 16, and windows 10... but nothing
the device starts normally nothing wrong.... except well, i can't enter any -mode- now...
any help?
Thanks

Girlfriend tried to update her Sony Aqua M4 e2306...

she says that the boot loader was unlocked, and she installed the twrp update... and the root check came back rooted.... she powered off the phone and put it on a charger. ...

a few hours later she tried to restart it and only got the Sony Xperia screen then reboot loop.

I've spent 2 days reading everything that i can find and trying various solutions but most won't work because it won't stay connected long enough to use companion, adb, fastboot, bootloader, etc. When the devices is seen by pc it is only for a moment and comes up as a generic MTP device or a hard drive i can't open.
I can get the occasional green or blue lights and sometimes a generic battery symbol by powering off and pressing + or - with power, but never get a recovery or boot load screen... only alternating "sony Xperia" and darkness
also, Emily won't update.

I've tried multiple solutions using different versions of SDK, ADB, sony and xperia Companion, fastboot, bootloader, odin, pwm, and more on multiple machines from XP to Win10, but nothing seems to even make a dent!

I've removed the back and disconnected the battery for 2 hours and am currently trying to research a more physical hack/repair using riff jtag.

i see many people with "boot loop" issue , but no one seems to follow through and say how to get out if you don't have the option of booting to anything....
