Help needed it's urgent. So I have unlocked bootloader successfully via fastboot. Everything went fine until the end without any error. So I disconnected the device from PC and rebooted it and now it is stuck at boot animation forever. It's the only phone I have now. Any suggestions?

  • Your device should have probably reset the phone after bootloader unlock, but I would still ask, have you tried booting into Recovery mode and doing hard reset (clearing data and all caches)?

  • That's bizarre because I never heard any device that doesn't have a Recovery Mode! May be I'm living in my own little world. Anyhow, hard reset is like factory reset done by booting into Recovery and doing all the necessary flush. I assume you can still boot into fastboot so try fastboot -w. It will clear userdata and cache.

  • Hahaha I'm never into stuff like that. So I don't know about these recovery and all. So are you sure about that fastboot -w? What will happen after that? Jun 28, 2015 at 16:43
  • That command will clear userdata (all apps+app data+ Internal SD card stuff) and cache. Alternatively, you can issue fastboot erase userdata and then fastboot erase cache.

I've solved my problem for myself by re-locking the bootloader and then repair the device using Sony PC Companion. Device is again in mint condition ;)
I'll add a supporting link later. Support links-

(1) How to get into recovery mode in Xperia devices?
(2) How to repair software using Sony PC Companion on Windows and using Mac Bridge on OS X?
