    Hello everyone,
    long time no see
    how is everyone

    i recently did a lastest software update on my phone via the Sony PC Companion program, now i did keep my eye on the laptop. it downloaded the software update, and it told me after downloading. to basicly, turn phone off, remove battery for 5 secs, and then replace battery. and then while holding the centre button, insert usb cable, and then the update process started,

    after 5 mins, gave me a error, i wish i did screen now, and so it didnt fully update the phone i dont think. anyway.
    so i tired to reboot my phone after it told me too. i keep getting a error sign picture on my screen...

    i have left the battery out for 10 mins, and then tired again, but no luck..

    can anyone help me please

    i have looked right though the forums, and no one else has has the same problem i got... please help..

    i toke picture on the front of my phone while it wasnt booting. and i did the best i could, but i think u will no what i mean...

    I haven't seen this error on my phone but have you tried the repair phone option in PC Companion?

    yea i did, but i have managed to get it sorted, i found a program were it restores the phone, by usb, while the phone is off, in flash mode, it restore it to the default and then i flash android 4 rom to the phone and now its working

    Glad you resolved this, it is generally a major error in the loading of the firmware via the update that causes this. it can generally be resolved by reflashing the phone with the Update Service (not PC Companion).
