xelp Xperia GO "no sim card" error

Hello,
my Xperia GO don't recognize any SIM card after flashing Xperia_Go_ST27i_6.1.1.B.1.1.0_Sony.ftf by @teocomi .
I tried flashing any other possible fw version, hard reset, changing various SIM cards, but no luck.
I suspect TrimArea is messed up.
Everything works in the phone, except the network part, like if no sim card inserted.
At every reboot, phone tells me it will auto-power-off after 15mins, to avoid it I press "Cancel", then it prompts me to select language, then asks me to insert a SIM card.
S1tool reports:
Code:
RUNNING S1_BOOT VER "R10E013"
SIMLOCK STATE: "TAMPERED"
LOADER AID: 0001
hash not supported []

I provide some screenshots:

Please help me, I've browsed the whole web for a solution, other people had my problem, but noone reported a valid solution for me.

If you got soft brick, that means you ended in bootloop. In this case you have just probably screw up something (probably with the framework). Try to reflash the firmware.

but how to do reflash firmware? can you say me in details? pls

Download flashtool, download your firmware using Xperifirm (included in flashtool), install necessary drivers (disable drivers signature if necessary). Meanwhile you should backup data for sure. Then using flashtool you can reflash your firmware...

Try changing usb port and updating flashtool drivers. Driver installer is located in flashtool/drivers/ folder. That happened to me once with my Xperia V and I fixed it by changing USB port. Also try to install previous version of flashtool it may help believe me.

Hi mate, i've just bought a Xperia go, got it for a very decent price and it's almost in mint condition. Umm, here's what i'm gonna ask, is there a way to reseal back the phone again for more proper water resistant? Since i've bought it secondhand, i try to sank it into water for a few times and it was okay, but yesterday after one more drop into water, i've notice something. Used it for awhile then i put it on my pocket and the weather outside is pretty hot. After i reach my destination, this thing started to show up, and now i have a conclusion that my go is already leaked and got some fog in the sensor (proximity), and the camera. But the really annoying thing is the display right now. I really desperate since i only using it for a few days and now this happened. Is there a quick fix for it? Sorry for my english, they're not so good ehe

    [SIZE=+3]Frequently Asked Questions[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=+2]Xperia P/U/Sola/Go[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=+1]This a short list of frequently asked questions in this device forum and the answers often given as a response. It should serve as a starting point for gathering knowledge and finding solutions to many common problems. Please only post in this thread with feedback on how to improve this document. Do not post "Thank you" type responses. If you have additional questions or require more help, try to find an existing thread or create your own. Do not use this as a general help thread.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=+1]Q1: I get bootloop after installing a custom rom. What is the problem?[/SIZE]

    A: Have you done everything correctly?
    -Firstly post your problem in the ROM thread as the devs there may help you better.
    -Check your mobile compatibility with the ROM
    -Check if you have installed the correct kernel for your ROM.
    -Check whether you have done the correct wipes as mentioned in the ROM thread.
    -Some ROMs require formatting system. So if it is mentioned in main ROM thread then you must do it.
    -Some releases may require stock rom first before flashing the custom rom. So flash the stock rom and then the custom rom over it.
    If nothing works just download the stock ROM for your mobile and flash it using flashtool. This may solve your problem.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q2: Can you suggest me the best ROM or kernel or something like that for my smartphone cause i'm really lazy to do a bit of searching...?[/SIZE]

    A: First go here and beware before asking these type of questions again otherwise you will end up with a bunch of people like me mocking you and nothing else.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q3: I have rooted my phone successfully, now how can I install CWM (ClockWorkMod) Recovery?[/SIZE]

    A: If you have locked bootloader you can simply go to this thread by atis112. And if your bootloader is unlocked you can simply flash a custom kernel with CWM or some other recovery present in it.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q4: I have a problem with this ROM and what should I....[/SIZE]

    A: It's a ROM specific question, better post it in the ROM thread. They will help you better.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q5: My phone can't boot in fastboot mode. Please help me!
    [/SIZE]

    A: Firstly check that fastboot is enabled on your mobile and the correct procedure to go to fastboot mode is by holding vol-up button and connecting to computer via USB.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q6: WIFI is not working. What should I do?[/SIZE]

    A: See if it is listed as a bug in the specific ROM thread. If not try custom kernels and if you can get correct WIFI modules flash them. If you're lucky WIFI will work.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q7: How do I install custom rom/kernel on my mobile?[/SIZE]

    A: Mihahn has worked really hard on making his guide not because he wants some people asking again and again the same questions instead of using a bit of the "SEARCH" feature.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q8: What is the safest way to root my phone or unlock its bootloader?[/SIZE]

    A: There no such thing as safest way. If you do everything correctly you will be successful. Just follow the instructions given in this great thread by dewanshu93.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q9: I did something wrong and now my phone is bricked. Please help!! :crying:[/SIZE]

    A: Try and follow this excellent guide by Toledo_JAB. Your phone most probably should work now. ;)

    [SIZE=+1]Q10: How do I unlock my bootloader if it says Bootloader Unlock Allowed:No?[/SIZE]

    A: No one has actually got a 100% working solution since it is because of your simlock, thus you may have to pay for it. You can try WotanServer or Omnius and if you're lucky it will be unlocked and fastboot might be enabled.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q11: How does Thanks Meter affect my profile?[/SIZE]

    A: Thanks Meter actually is not useful in becoming Recognized Contributor/Themer/Developer. It is actually the appreciation you get on you works. Thanks Meter has been made so that members of XDA stop posting just THANKS on threads and thread could be clean and helpful.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q12: How to be a Recognized Contributor/Themer/Developer?[/SIZE]

    A: Recognized Contributor is a role intended for members who produce some of the best original and helpful guides for users, as well as helping other users who have problems, in a friendly manner. Recognized Contributors will get a custom user title and the faster ad-free XDA template, as well as access to developer tools currently being created. Any Senior Moderator on XDA can add Recognized Contributors, should you feel deserving of this title.

    Recognized Themers are those users who work (often tirelessly) on designing new theme graphics and user interface overhauls for ROMs. Users who aspire to be Recognized Themers should be creating original graphics work for their themes being released, demonstrate a commitment to crediting other users’ work when applicable, and seek the relevant permission in advance from the original creator. Recognized Themers will receive a custom user title and the faster ad-free XDA template, as well as access to developer tools currently being created. Any Senior Moderator on XDA can add Recognized Themers, should you feel deserving of this title.

    Recognized Developer, as the name suggest are those who develop really good ROMs, kernels, etc. Anyone who is skillful and publishes his own creation other that just copying and pasting can be termed as recognized developer.

    For more details and how to apply for these posts. See this.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q13: What are Governors and I/O Schedulers, etc.?[/SIZE]

    A: See this very good guide by zhanjia and anyone can know everything about them.Though this guide is for Xperia 2011 but it covers a great range :)

    [SIZE=+1]Q14: Does ChainFire 3D support my phone?[/SIZE]

    A: The simple answer is download and use it. But if you are on ICS/JB I would recommend you not to use it as it may most probably result in bootloop. ChainFire 3D is compatible only upto GB.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q15: Can you tell me how does thanks meter increases with regard to number of thanks?[/SIZE]

    A:
    No. of Thanks and meter:​


    0-25
    0.jpg

    26-50
    1.jpg

    51-100

    There is a bug with meter it doesn;t shows 5 bars. Anyways the thanks meter doesn't judge anyone or status of any member. It's the works, his contributions and help he does.​


    [SIZE=+1]Q16: What are BB Codes and what BB Codes can I use in my thread?[/SIZE]

    A: Mainly every kind of text formatting that we do in XDA thread is governed by BB codes. Here is the list of all the BB Codes we can use in XDA and explanation of each code.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q17: Is there anyway to mount my sd-card using CWM recovery?[/SIZE]

    A: Yes! Many versions of CWM support mounting sd-card through it. For that go to Mounts and Storage->Mount sd-card and you're done! But remember if you press back button then your sd-card will unmount instantly.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q18: How do I add [SOLVED] tag to my thread/how do I change title of my thread?[/SIZE]

    A: Just check here and similar way you can also change the title of your thread.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q19: How do I back up my TA partition [/SIZE]

    A:Use this awesome tool by DevShaft.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q20: My device uses MIRCO SIM. How to convert an existing sim to micro sim?[/SIZE]

    A: Here is template.
    YouTube video demo.​

    [SIZE=+1]Q21: How do I reset my phone or turn off when it froze? Battery is not removable. So is there any other way?[/SIZE]

    A:Yes you can reset your phone. There are 2 ways for that:
    1. If you want to restart - Hold Vol. Up+Power button for 5 seconds and as soon as you hear a vibration leave the buttons.
    2. If you want to turn off - Hold Vol. Up+Power button for 10 seconds and as soon as you hear 3 vibrations leave the buttons. :)

    [SIZE=+1]Q22: My phone can't restore the backups I made from recoveries. Why?[/SIZE]

    A: Well there could be various reasons for it. It may happen because you may have made them from some other recovery which makes backup in some other format and restoring it from another recovery which makes backup in another format(take TWRP and CWM for instance), so backups made in one recovery wouldn't be visible on other.
    Another reason could be that you have renamed your backups and they have spaces in them. Remove the spaces and voila! you would be able to restore now!​

    [SIZE=+1]Q23: I'm facing various status errors in CWM. Can you please help me?[/SIZE]

    A: Try this. :D

    [SIZE=+1]Q24: How to install fastboot and other device drivers on windows 8?[/SIZE]

    A: Try this great tutorial by garvitdelhi. :D

    hi all
    yesterday i flashed Xperiance Lite v2.0 Rom in my XU and its a great Rom :)
    but i want to somethings like :
    Timescape Widgets For sony
    change the fonts
    how i can use theme
    i looked in the original thread but i didnt find helps
    plz Reply asap !!

    thank u again :)

    Hey mate, Glad you like it :p Before I answer your question, Just a suggestion, you might get more relevant info for Rom-related stuff if you ask in the Developer's since he as well as its users are the ones who will see your question :) I know that you couldnt do that due to Post count but just thought Id let you know ;) PS: feel free to PM me also if you got issues. Sometimes, I might miss individual replies in these threads :p

    1) Timescape.. Few ppl used it,Hence I removed.. Ill make you a flashable zip to install it now ;)
    2) Select any font you like, go to /system/fonts with any root file manager and replace Roboto,DroidSans and their bold versions with your ttf file :) ie, delete them and rename copies of yours to Roboto,DroidSans.etc. Then set permissions 644 :)
    3) Go to Settings, Display and select Theme :)

    I believe I answered the 1st two questions somewhere in thread but it might have been in PM, not sure lol Anyway, I hope that clarifies everything ;) If you run into any issue, let me know ;)

    Cheers
