i tried that too, the same problem.. i will try sony companion and see what will happen..
My two cents, always install CWM - Backup your ROM, before doing any modding to your phone.
thank you! Worked perfect!! as hard as it was to let the battery die I did it and she worked!!!
My phone is working again, you just have to be patient, as it took >16 hrs for my phone to turn on. Once my phone turn on automatically, I had let sit for 4hrs, then pressed the power and volume up buttons at the same time and held it for exactly 5 seconds, it then turned off and I was able to flash as normal. Just be patient. Thanks everybody.
Here are the steps I took successfully revise my phone from soft brick.
[*]That is all ... Back and running.
Timing = could be different from phone to phone - depends on battery of the phone before it dead.

BUT DON'T GIVE UP....
Many Thanks To People Who Have Shared Their Experiences Here.. Keep It Up Guyz.:good:
In last Thursday I decide to get back my bricked ION and then follow the instruction as markelON suggested.
And when I tried 2 hours later, I've finally get the Xperia logo again, and everything become working!
In my case I found later that the speaker in back of the phone has broken. I don't sure this was already broken since the phone bricked or between the repair service tries for recover my phone. But other functions are working and my dad had car accident recently. So I keep my phone and still not send back to repair service yet.
Now it has hardware issue, not brick, so I could call the repair service to fix it now. :silly:
I thank everyone who lend the help, especially markeION.
Thank you very much.
P.S. I has also written the fix instruction summary in my language and publish to local community too, based on markeION suggustion. So I think this would help others who aren't skill the English language too.
I was able to get it in fastboot mode, i will now try to fla****
this is what i did for the people having the same issue.
once you get the boot loop press power+vol up until you get first vibration, after that very quickly you need to plug usb to the pc while holding only the vol up key.
this worked in a xperia ion bootloader unlocked
Thanks everyone for your help. i got more experience now, i hope this helps to everyone else that have or get the same issue.
Remember when you get bootloop press power+vol up until you get first vibration, then very quickly connect the phone pressing vol up or vol down to get fastboot or flashmode, then you can fix the phone with flashtool. this worked for my Xperia Ion bootloader unlocked
Look, right now i am in Fastboot Mode! This time it worked again. But when i try to flash a kernel.sin it says that there is no device! What to do man??
EDIT: WAIT, NOW I AM IN FLASH MODE AND TRYING TO FLASH KERNEL! But after a few seconds i get this:
EDIT 3: I made it! I had to flash the whole Rom. Not just the system.sin and kernel.sin. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!
So I don't do anything about the purple led and just redo the steps?
I GOT IT TO FLASHMODE
After charging and having constant red led to no led (?) I unplugged from the wall charger and and then plugged to laptop to wait for bootloop. So there was red led, then after a while no led again. I just pressed down (didn't expect anything to happen lol) and then I got GREEN LED!!!! Luckily, I already set up flash tool
I installed ALL the drivers in flash tool
But there was no Ion,
right now i'm installing pc suite cause my sister said there are drivers there.
Am I doing the right move? O_O
MY SISTER WAS RIGHT
IT FLASHED ALL THE WAY THROUGH!!!
btw, checked Exclude TA, is that correct?
phone still won't boot (assuming no battery)
I'M CHARGING RIGHT NOW!!
will report back when it boots
sorry for page stretching!

:silly:ENJOY UR BRAND NEW/OLD ware:silly:
:victory: WELL THATS IT ,, THATS WHAT I'VE DONE ,, you guys can follow it if you like .. i can do it , so u can. ryt? :silly:
THANKS TO THIS THREAD , AND ALL CREDIT TO ALL XDA Developer Who already tested all trick and method and provide all TOOLS :highfive:
IM NOT GOOD ENOUGH IN ENGLISH . PERIOD
Thanks for the answer and the miracle has happened, my phone is back from the dead. This is how i did it:
I got frustrated with the phone after it wouldn't respond to the soft reset it was trying (power + volume up). Then i pressed the volume up button while playing a game with the other while in the corner of my eye i see the light changing color and yes, it had gone into fastboot. After that i flashed the kernel only, but the phone wouldn't boot. I was angry that i let this good chance slip, but i managed to do the trick again: just keep pressing volume up, until it went into fastboot. I flashed the stock rom and my phone worked again.
Moral of the story (and something to put in the startpost): Even if the screen doesn't show anything and even if the phone doesn't vibrate or give a signal to indicate the battery is full it can still go into fastboot if you press the button repeatedly and keep trying.
Thanks for the help!
Worked like a charm for me brother. Installed something to my L28at and it was showing incorrect battery and couldnt re install original OS. Now I am good!
Anyone can help me please, i have strong red light and i can't flash again.
EDIT: Now, after unplugged and waiting 5 mn, i plugged again I see the logo of the battery:laugh: and it appears that it is empty after 20 hours of charging lol. I wait a bit and I'll let you know if I can flash:fingers-crossed:
EDIT2: I installed cm9 and restored my backup. everything is ok now.
Mine is the same problem, the kernel does not support offline charging, and the issue is that: the phone runs out of battery - It gets booted up after 5 minutes charging and then turn off. The cycle continues.
I solve the problem by:
- Let it charge till the screen boots up.
- Power + volume up for 1 vibration, and then hold volume up for fastboot mode.
- Flash adv kernel 17 and then connect to charger. Let it charge for 30 mins.
- Reflash the Rom kernel.
Everything works perfectly after that.
Thanks it worked!
But is there a way that you can use the phone with pc companion after flashing it?
Because pc companion told me i have a wrong firmware...
Alhamdulillah ~ SUCCESS :good:
SUPER Thanks To Everyone Here~!!
ok i after about 9 hours of charging i didn't get any response from my Phone (ion)
so i decided to open my phone and disconnect the battery cable !
after i disconnect my battery cable and plug it again i connect my phone to wall charger and get a red light LED.. after about 20 minutes red led become orange then i connect my phone to pc and start flashtool and flashed new TFT file
all i am saying is that if u don't get red light after couple of hour you have 2 options !
let the battery drain then start charging or unplug battery cable then plug it back
here is the picture of my ion's battery flat
Yess!! I Repair.. Thank Youu!!
Well I recovered my Ion.
Now for some reason I cannot flash any baseband when using win xp. I can flash basebands from ubuntu though. It took me a few hours to figure this out. Tried reboot, older version and every stock ftf I have, ics & gb. I can flash all other parts of the stock ftf. Baseband freezes flashtool up at processing the data and I have to close flashtool.
Not sure why win xp wont work, but since linux worked I dont care
I got some good tips to add to OP.
Flashing just the kernel requires less battery charge to flash and fixes offline charging.
Also unplugging the battery after back pieces are removed should eliminate the waiting for battery to die, if you can handle taking phone apart. Battery unplug should save a lot of time in both discharge and charging. If battery is full if will take days to discharge. But if you unplug it should reset and keep the charge for flashing.
Well now on to my wifes captivate glide. It keeps shutting down when data is turned on. Time to learn about odin and Samsung
