Right, been trying to enter fastboot/bootloader. The phone is completely standard/locked at the moment.

I've press and held the volume button while connecting the USB cable. I'm running Windows 7 64bit and have PC companion installed. Windows sees the device is plugged in, and attempts to install drivers - it fails. In device manager is shows S1 service without drivers installed.

I've downloaded some drivers from the Sony site here: http://developer.sonymobile.com/downloads/drivers/fastboot-driver/ but when I point the PC to the directory, it says it can't find drivers?

I'm confused! I've got all the ADB stuff installed already and can successfully connect my HTC, so I assume it's just the Sony driver I need?

Make sure you install flashmode / flashboot driver on flashtool driver pack... run flashtool xperia driver setup and under choose component make sure you tick flashmode / flashboot box... hope works friend....

Easy way to get it is by... Going to Sony's site, downloading their software and then installing it. Next run the software and select the repair option.. After a while it will download the SOMC driver and install it. You can CTL ALT DEL and kill the Sony app if you don't want to take repair matters further.. And there is your driver! Go and back it up or check the install cache for the installer and save this. Choice is yours.

NOTE: Make sure your firewall is not blocking any of the directories it requires for operation. If so just open control access to these and you're good to go.
