I had done this procedure and I get on other devices S1boot Fastboot. I tried to install 5 different downloads with drivers from android, official xperia, etc, but none of it works. Also I followed this CMD procedure https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=74528751&postcount=22 and again nothing. Do you have an idea how to install the drivers on win10 with all the official updates?
Ok, mate, so you can find "Android Phone" in Device Manager, right?
I'm on Windows 10 also, and I use "Android Composite ADB Interface" driver by Google that works well.
You can get it from https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/latest_usb_driver_windows.zip?hl=en , I think.
Extract the zip file, go to device manager, select S1boot device -> properties -> Driver -> Update Driver -> Browse my computer... -> Let me pick from list... -> Have Disk... -> Browse... and point the usb_driver/android_winusb.inf file under the folder you extracted the zip.
Press OK and you might see the list of drivers. Then select "Android Composite ADB Interface" (or Android Bootloader Interface ), and Next.
You might see Warning Message, but go ahead with pressing "YES".
If you've ever installed google drivers, then just select S1boot device -> properties -> Driver -> Update Driver -> Browse my computer... -> Let me pick from list... -> Google -> select "Android Composite ADB Interface" (or Android Bootloader Interface ) and so on.

And to verify the installation, go to the folder where fastboot.exe is located, and run the command "fastboot.exe devices", you'll see your device.

Well, I can't remember clearly, but maybe you can specify the driver(Android composite ADB or Android bootloader) for the S1boot device same way.
I'll check it again in a few hours.

Ok, it's my bad, but I've confirmed. You'll see "S1boot Fastboot" under the "Other devices" tree if you haven't installed driver correctly.
So select S1boot device -> properties -> Driver -> Update Driver -> Browse my computer... -> Let me pick from list... -> Show All Devices (or any device) -> Have Disk... -> Browse... and point the usb_driver/android_winusb.inf file under the folder you extracted the zip.
Press OK and you might see the list of drivers. Then select "Android Composite ADB Interface" (or Android Bootloader Interface ), and Next.
You might see Warning Message, but go ahead with pressing "YES".
I could install again after I completely uninstalled all drivers in this way.
If you want, I'll PM you Step by step screen shot.

Finally I had installed Android Composite ADB Interface and I had flashed the new TWRP. See the attachment. But now I cannot even switch off the tablet!!! Nothin works even the yellow button. Just see the logo SONY + XPERIA. Any ideas?

BTW what is the yellow button? If you can't power off your device, I think you'd better let it run out battery in the worst circumstance:crying:

First of all thank you for your efford, but nonthing solved yet...
By installing the drivers you had told me I can see SOMC Flash Device either under usb tree or under general laptop's tree (i don't know why). I can see it only for 30 seconds because it becomes automatically disconnected and then disappears from devices and boots up on SONY logo . When it is connected for 30 sec I cannot list fastboot devices, although it seems to be in fastboot mode, in order to flash TWRP the way you told me. Also I followed a procedure with XPERIA Companion to fix the firmware and it says that the bootloader is unlocked and cannot proceed. Last, through flashtool I can only lock or unlock the bootloader and I cannot flash stock rom. I tried to lock the bootloader in order to use Companion, it replies that was done, but it is the same thing as unlocked. Really stucked....

EDIT : Yellow button is on the left side of SGP612 next to micro SD slot. I managed to flash TWRP the way yo told me but it is the same. Look the attached picture. I managed to flash it holding volume up button while connecting with PC

That's too bad...
So you can't see LED color changing sequence to boot recovery mode too?
And flashing old TWRP didn't work?
Hmmm.....I will check another way to go back stock bootloader, recovery and ROM later...

Well, I have never used XPERIA Companion before, so I can't guide you enough...
But I just used Flash tool alone when I bricked my SGP611.
And have you read the post below?

Yes, I did... Although it took me enough time to understand that I had to stop driver signature check (advance mode of win10) in order to get all the 3 drivers installed, I get the following window and it stacks on the 5. I cannot move on, because the flash button cannot be pressed. I had downloaded the ftf file and automatically was unzipped in a folder where I cannot find any other file to the firmwares window to be flashed.

Did you click the '>’ before the firmware name? It will expand and show the downloaded firmwares.

So I got a tablet today and tried this.
Been flashing Sony devices for some time but I have never encountered this.

Bootloader unlock required.
Update bootloader to stock 23.5.A.1.291.
(If you use lower version like lollipop, boot fails.)
TWRP is here!! Use "scorpion" for SGP621, "scorpion_windy" for SGP611/612.

Download ROM zip
Extract boot.img from ROM.zip
Reboot into bootloader mode
Flash extracted boot.img (fastboot flash boot boot.img)
Flash recovery to FOTAKernel (fastboot flash FOTAKernel TWRP_xxxx.img)
(Don't boot any stock ROMs.)
Reboot (fastboot reboot)

After fastboot reboot I get a Red blinking LED.
What to do?

I can get it into bootloader mode.

EDIT:
Solved, have flashed stock.
But still the same issue when I try this or other roms/recovery.

So now I managed to flash stock rom 5.1.1 with EMMA program. I followed the instructions and when I connected the bricked Z3 compact tablet it was recognized immediately by thia program and flashed in 10 minutes the stock rom (stops for 5-6 minutes at 98%). See the screenshots.

Well, so you've revived your Z3TC at last, haven't you?
Glad to hear that you haven't fallen to the worst circumstance.
You can go forward to AICP or Floko again if you want to.
Anyway, I feel relieved to find that your device is working again.

Here =)
Got it working.
But holy cow this is slow.
Extremly slow.
I installed this yesterday and it's been fine in terms of speed, but I am going back to stock 6.0. The only real issues for me are the camera (grainy), YouTube, (grainy), which I believe is due to the lack of Sony software and being able to use my TA backup. And when I've tried to modify the Settings.apk I've lost Settings altogether which doesn't give me much confidence in modding the SystemUI or framework.

If it wasn't for those issues I'd use this full time, but I'd rather use something slightly older that works than something newer that has issues, although they are minor.

    AICP
    Android Ice Cold Project
    for Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact (scorpion/scorpion_windy) Unofficial

    AICP is known by everyone as the "Ice Cold Project" that started on a Desire HD years ago (2012) and since then evolved into a mature ROM with the BEST community you can find!!!

    Until Lollipop, the Rom has always been based on AOKP. Unfortunately, since AOKP stopped development (but made a comeback later), we changed our base to CM when it comes to hardware, drivers and some features.
    With the re-brand of CM to LineageOS (LOS) we are now actually LOS based with some tweaks from AOSP.

    If there are any bugs, either we will sort them out or the LOS team will if it concerns their code base. This rom isn't LOS supported, so no need to report errors/bugs to them!!


    Code:
    #include <std_disclaimer.h>
    
    /*
     * Your warranty is now void.
     *
     * We are not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
     * thermonuclear war or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
     * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
     * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
     * you point the finger at us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Hard & a lot.
     *
     */

    FAQ:
    Before using the ROM:
    Q. Why doesn't this ROM support Xposed?
    A. Xposed is a hack that is geared towards AOSP, custom ROM's modify the framework a lot, so Xposed can cause a ton of issues on custom ROM's. Now it might work for you, however it is not to be discussed in this thread, and you should refrain from posting bug reports.

    Q. Alright, but I still want to flash Xposed, so which version do I need to install?
    A. Xposed is not yet available for Oreo.

    Flashing the ROM:
    Q. What do I need to know before flashing?
    A. Check the install instructions in the first post...

    Q. Can the builds be dirty flashed over each other?
    A. Yes, however make a nandroid first as there is a chance of getting a bootloop or encountering bugs. Also bugs may only be reported on a clean flash.

    Q. How do I dirty flash builds?
    A. Wipe the System, Cache and ART/Dalvik cache. Flash the ROM, GApps (only needed if you wipe the system), your preferred root solution and reboot. Or you might just use the OTA app to preform that task for you.

    Q. How do I flash kernel builds?
    A1. If it's a .img file, boot into TWRP and go to the install page in TWRP, in the bottom right corner select "install image", select the desired kernel, then select "boot", then swipe to flash, then go back to the install screen and install your root method again, if you don't want to loose root and reboot.
    A2. If it's a flashable ZIP, you can flash it together with a ROM update or separately. Go to the install page in TWRP, choose the kernel zip (or add it to the flash queue right after the ROM zip). Then add your root method to the queue if you don't want to loose root. Now swipe to flash, and then reboot.

    Using the ROM:
    Q. How do I enable software buttons?
    A. Until the navbar enabler is added, add the line qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 to the build.prop and then reboot, set it to 1 to disable it if you want. You can use an App like Kernel Audiutor for that.

    Q. I installed a bad theme and now I'm getting a bootloop, how do I fix it?
    A. In TWRP, flash the substratum rescue zip that's in the substratum folder on the internal storage.

    Q. I keep losing root with Magisk, how do I fix it?
    A. Check this out. If that doesn't work for you, ask for help in this thread, read or ask in the Magisk thread on XDA or just re-flash Magisk!

    Q. I'm having issues with WhatsApp, how do I fix it?
    A. Read this

    Q. Do I need to provide a logcat if I'm reporting a bug?
    A. If you want it to be fixed faster (or at all) then yes, you should definitely provide a logcat. (Note: Please just link the logcat from your GDrive, Dropbox, etc. and do not post the content here. Thanks.

    Q. How do I get a logcat, what type should I get and more questions that can conveniently be answered by my pre-determined answer?
    A1. Read this thoroughly. Also, here's a good app for getting logs: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tortel.syslog (Root needed).
    A2. If you are already rooted, you can use the built-in feature to make a logcat and provide that. Just look into the root section in the AICP Extras menu.


    instructions.png

    The ROM should contain everything you need to enjoy Android Oreo. You don't need to install any Add-on's, simply download the latest ROM, GApps, flash it and go!
    If you want the device to run the ROM "rooted", you can flash a root solution of your choice after the ROM Zipfile.

    It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup as this can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug.
    If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience any strange behavior.
    How to flash:
    (Again: Don't do it if you don't know it!)

    0. Upgarade to latest bootloader
    1. Download the ROM and GApps and transfer them to your device internal storage.
    2. Boot to recovery (TWRP recommended).
    3. Wipe System, Cache, Data and ART/Dalvik cache.
    4. Flash ROM Zipfile.
    5. Flash/Install GApps (optional, needed for e.g. Google Playstore to work).
    6. Flash/Install the root solution of your choice (optional).
    7. Reboot your device.
    The ROM has GApps persistence in between dirty flashes, so you only have to flash them once!
    The root solution should be flashed together with every OTA update (= ROM Update) as long as the instructions of your
    root solution do not state something else (="persistence on dirty flashing") !



    Currently Supported Root Solutions:

    Magisk v16.0


    KERNEL:
    The kernel in this ROM follows LOS source with custom additions.

    PREREQUISITE FOR OTA:
    To be able to flash using the buildin OTA app, TWRP recovery is needed.
    You can still use the LOS recovery and OTA app, but you will need to download the zip file and flash it manually from within your recovery. The Zipfile gets saved in the "aicp_ota" folder on your internal storage.
    Please be sure that you are on the latest TWRP recovery. Keep im ind that this could also be an unofficial version!
