1) it's CWM not CMW ;)
2) cwm recovery doesn't contain kernel
4) ICS can't work on GB kernel
5) solution: use ICS kernel when you're using ICS CWM backup

Regarding this problem, first you said you flashed GB and now you say you got error, how is that?

For flashing ICS .ftf use latest flashtool and tick no final data verification option, or something like that.
If you have problem flashing GB .ftf, using latest flashtool, then use some older version.

I meant that after bricking my phone, i just tried to re-flash GB or ICS to unbrick, and now flashing does not occur successfully but ends with error.
Read what I wrote above.

And give us a bit more info.
What flashtool version are u using, what OS are u using. What error do you get,log file.
Tried downloading older version of flashtool?

extract kernel.sin file from MT11i_4.1.A.0.562_Nordic_1253-1755.ftf
connect phone with fastboot mode to pc
then you have to run fastboot.exe from FlashTool\x10flasher_lib\fastboot.exe
flash kernel.sin via this command
fastboot flash boot kernel.sin

I managed to reinstall android ICS, before that i tried Wostan X tool Unlock, upto the point where it showed that you have not enough credits. then i retried Flashtool and got ICS installed. now phone runs ICS successfully.

Now a new problem arrived...... Now I cannot connect phone in fast boot mode...... also my adb drivers are gone...... Please help

First you said you have unlocked BL, and now you tried to use wotan tool for unlock, why?
How did you unlock your bootloader?

And regard your driver problem, install drivers from flashtool folder.


And no need to write with that over sized colored text.

I have unlocked bootloader 2 months ago using sony bootloader unlock service...

one other problem I have not mentioned earlier is that phone does not detect SIM card, i have tried 3 other SIM cards also
also by opening service menu in *#*#7378423#*#* --> configuration --> Bootloader unlock allowed: No . earlier it shows yes as i have unlocked it before.

That unlockx is a nasty bit of software, if you try to unlock without credits, it cripples your phone trying to force a sale.

Download s1tool use the restore button, this will fix the sim issue. Then unlock via the Sony method as you used originally.

Must be s,1tool not setool


You have to install the zeus drivers, and touch the testpoint, it should detect it as Zeus flash device, then use restore.
