Newbie so excuse me if wrong section. I picked up a Xperia Z1 C6903 from eBay as spares/repairs (so I do not know history) turns out the phone is in working order (mirrored actions with my Xperia Z) but the screen display is black with no visuals (touch screen works).
Can someone tell me if they have experienced the same problem with the Z1 C6903 and if they managed to solve it?
(quite a few XZUltra mention SOD (Sleep Of Death) on forum but with no fix - but my problem is the phone is still active but no diplay)
I hoping this is a firmware issue and will attempt to root to original firmware as it is currently on the latest 257 FW - I have managed to take screenshot from the service menu.
So can i get advice - what is the best way to root it to original firmware (bootloader locked) with minimal risk of bricking it as i have never rooted a phone before but I am tech savy & quick learner - PC companion or Flash tool?
Thanks in advance
