Default Please Help, tried to Flash phone, Error phone Cannot Reboot.

Hey Guys, I hope you are having a good day. Mine is not a good one.

I wanted my experia st15i phone to be back on stock again so I can root it. I am running a .62 firmware. I have read on doomlords thread that .62 firmware cannot be rooted, so I decided to flash it back to the stock phone .368.

I followed all the step on the flashing on the phone.
-downloaded the flashtool for experia latest version. Followed the steps
- installed the necessary drivers -adb, flashtool drivers.
- then I followed the steps to flash the phone

This error came up (see Attachment) after that I haven't been able to turn on my phone since then. Even If I tried again, still comes up the same error.

BIG PROBLEM! My phone now cannot be turned on, it keeps getting back to flash mode whenever I connect it to the computer.

Please help!

I am sorry but I only follow steps throughtout the flashing method, I don't know if I had to unlock my bootloader before I flash it, or root it.

Please help, I am currently researching now If I can turn back my phone again.

You could try reloading the software on the device using the Update Service at least this way the handset will be able to be turned on if it works
