Is there anyone have the latest version of s1tool? (not the 2015)

my phone is in bricked mode (error flashing partition.sin using flashtool), now it is in SOMC Flash Device. using the 2015 version of S1tool tells me that my device is not supported. my phone is on the late-2016 line.

if there's no recent version of s1tool, can you guys tell me the alternative ways to unbrick my phone? (can't send the phone to sony, warrantly expired a long long time ago, can't afford to buy a solder station, box)

thanks. i would gladly donate some money to those who successfully helped me to unbrick my phone. i can't afford another one for now. 😭

S2tool, what model?
Uh, i think there is more recent software such as S2tool. Look it up; you also don't state the model of phone so it's hard to provide help.

Softbrick or hardbrick? Are you still able to get a response (green or blue led) when plugging it in to a pc via flashmode and/or fastboot?

hardbrick to me. flashmode doesn't work anymore. fastboot still can boot. but it's useless anyway. all flashing/ unlock commands just give me "command not allowed" error. if i ground one of the pins of the phone and disconnect the battery before i connect it to pc, i got SOMC Flash Device in Device Manager. Tried faking it as Qualcomm HS USB Loader 9008 and get QFIL to read partition table. No response and then timeout error. S1tool 19V2015 version (this is the latest i could find on google) just gives me "HARDWARE NOT SUPPORTED" error.

Yeah, I don't think s1tool is compatible with that boad (X performace); try SETool2 ( https://files.setool.net/support/SETool2/ ) & read ( https://support.setool.net/showthrea...D-NEWS/page666 ).

Are you downloading it from this link ( https://mega.nz/folder/s5knUKJa#JFUJb-9-AJr27vTl_MJ9GQ )? I see another .rar archive named scripts did you unpack it and read the instructions? Btw, is your bootloader unlocked? Don't give up, there is a free version out there. Write on the forum for SE2Tool and see.

no, my bootloader is locked. obviously came from softbank japan. checked it too before flashing.

EDIT:- if i can even use setool, holding down the volume down button while connecting to the computer just end up with blinking green led light on my xperia. the computer doesn't detect it. when i use testpoints, the computer detects as SOMC Flash Device. here's what i did so far to attempt flash using testpoints

1) flashtool method:- not working. mtp error. shows message like "for 2011 device line, make sure to turn off mtp". i can't even boot my phone to go to settings to turn off that thing

2) emma method:- not working. doesn't detect anything

3) s1tool method:- hardware not supported error

4) setool2 using the link you've provided:- smartcard not found. i don't have and can't even afford the box.

5) qfil method:- faked the somc flash device as qualcomm hs usb loader 9008. doesn't work. timeout error.

* before i see the somc flash device, the computer detects it as QUSB_BULK
* i will probably donate some money to someone who can bring my phone back to life again

Try what I posted in the previous reply ( https://mega.nz/folder/s5knUKJa#JFUJb-9-AJr27vTl_MJ9GQ ). There are other scripts you might of missed. I don't see how a smartcard device is needed, though I could be wrong. That should be the correct software to fix boot and unbrick your device. There might be a post on the many pages of the forum that provides SE2Tool to help you find the solution. Are you sure you have the right points, when the light stops blinking that is your indication the board has been put into flash mode. You might have to pack the boot partition into a different format (.ftf) to get it to flash with the software ( https://sony.yt/topic/5324-s1tool-tu...5-smartphones/ ). Was able to unbrick a docomo Z1C with the suggested method. When you do accomplish the task, write a tutorial for other's.
