Hi! I'm the one that posted comment on 2015-03-26 21:56. I managed to save my phone and I will tell you how I did that. Firstly, when pressing the power button, the phone blinked a red light. It would not
turn on. I wanted to flash stock ROM, but the phone would not be detected most of the time. When I got green light sometimes, after a while, the phone would disconnect and reboot. So this morning I tried again and got a blue light (phone was in fastboot mode). I flashed the boot.img file of CyanogenMod with Flashtool. The phone would still not turn on. So then I reconnected the phone to my PC and leave it. Didn't know what to do anymore. After a while I noticed a pattern: green light, Sony logo, reboot, red light. This process kept repeating. I remembered about recovery mode and I took my chance. From there, I did the usual wipe/reset and installed from sideload a new version of CyanogenMod. Now my phone is working again.

I do not recommend buying this. Phone easily overheats and lags. Front camera is terrible. The back cover is very flimsy. No upgrade to Android KitKat or later. I unlocked the bootloader and tested different ROMs. Not one stable version of Android did I found. After flashing and using CyanogenMod Nightly, my phone is bricked. It turned off by itself and now won't even charge. It just not worth it. I should have bought Moto G instead.

Nice phone I wanted to get one for a while but then I found out that it is stuck on Android 4.3 and it's not upgradable anymore. Android 4.3 is the worst Android version.

Dont buy SP since it is outdated.
Check oyher options like E3, E4, C3 or Samsung A or E series.

You can, however, install 4.4.x- and 5.x-based 3rd party ROMs (visit or search the web for those), if the bootloader is unlockable on your phone (inform yourself beforehand).
