HARD BRICK MEANS NO FLASHMODE AND NO FASTBOOT.
IN ORDER TO PROCEED DISASSEMBLY OF YOUR DEVICE IS REQUIRED.
IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY,STOP READING THIS, GO THE SONY SERVICE AND PLAY STUPID.
AS AFTER OPENING YOUR DEVICE, YOUR WARRANTY IS 100% VOID.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE.
YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.


Let's get started.
1. Download tools.7z from attachments and pack for your device.
2. Install ggsetup-3.0.0.7.exe
3. Open the back cover of your device.
4. Find the test point (See attachments).
5. Disconnect a battery, connect a usb cable. LED RED will start to blink.
6. Using the paper clip connect your test point with the GND. I used the metal shield in the middle of the motherboard.
7. Open the device manager, you should see SEMC Flash Device. If no, you did something wrong.
8. Disconnect your phone from computer.
9, Repeat the step 5.
10.Run the s1tool and select S1 MSM8974 EMERGENCY for the phone type.
11. Press the flash button, and choice the APP file for your device.
12. Press testpoint ready and repeat the step 6.
13. Remove the testpoint and press READY, when program will ask you to do so.
14. If flash was successful, you may disconnect your phone from usb, connect your battery and try to boot.You may have to charge your battery.
15. Now you can flash your device normally using software.


P.S.
I was not be able to flash on windows 8 64bit, but I flashed without problems on XP.

I would like to thank:

the_laser for making the software.


myevilface from support.setool.net for finding testpoint for c69xx.

and my poor Z Ultra which I sacrificed trying to find the test point
Actually I finished him when I wanted to fix audio jack.
Was to happy that my device is fixed and damaged the screen connector

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If I helped, you may want to buy me a beer or two.

I think we need a more detailed step by step tutorial, cause the first post explain the method well but if you read the "Readme.txt" file in S1tools found a different way to do the flash process.

Must the clip connected when you connect the battery too?
How many times is required to use the clip bridge?
you have to point test the device while is usb connected but no battery?

maybe if we do a better and well explained step by step tutorial, we get more users testing their phones with more security.

-----------

My xperia z is connected to usb ( battery is not connnected) but i have no led blinking as the first post says. ( Maybe cause is Z?)
my phone after install apps is now recognized as ZEUS xxxxx (????)

im still waiting for to know where is the Xperia Z test point.

thanks to every member of this forum fo do the impossible, and recive all my grattitude!!

Greeeeeeetsssss Guys XDA GO GO GO !

@XxXcompany:
do you have original trim area backup ?

@Lampert400@gmail.com:

@acetoner:
s1tool only support worldwide msm8974 chipsets, but you have prototype phone with msm8974 chipset.

currently i don't have plans to add support for msm8274 and msm8x74 prototypes in public s1tool, and i'll not give anyone private s1tool

if you really need to fix your phone, then download usb over network, setup server part, learn how to share device, open external access on your router/pc and when everything complete, contact me via PM, i'll help you.
