How to fix a Hardbricked X8
I have worked out how to fix a hardbricked X8 WITHOUT using PC Companion or Flashtool. You can even use it if xRecovery doesn't work!
  • First, Download the executable here
  • Install on a Windows PC
  • Once installed, Update Service should start automatically. If not, find it in the Start menu.
  • Find the X8 from the list
  • It will ask you to connect your phone by taking out the battery, waiting 5 seconds before putting the battery back in again, then pressing and holding the Back button while inserting the MicroUSB cable into the X8
  • Release the back button when told to do so
  • Update Service will download the latest ROM, then flash it to your phone
  • Unplug your phone, then turn it on and it is guaranteed to work if you follow the instructions step by step

I hope this helped, and if it worked for you, hit the Thanks button!

SEUS isn't supported by SE anymore, but it works better than PCCompanion for fixing our phone

Everybody knows this and why do you say you don't need SEUS if you are actually explaining how to use it?

Sorry for my late reply as I have been finishing off my Android app and helping with CyanogenMod on the.Ace. I mainly posted this, not as a guide, but a way to download the latest version of SEUS, as it is hard to get hold of. I got this off a Sony Ericsson employee, and thought others may find it useful.

SilentW, this version of SEUS was recently released internally, and is still supported by Sony Ericsson.
