Hello,
 
Today i will show you how to unbrick your Sony Xperia Z C6602 / C6603 / C6606 / C6616 and update boot. Sony Xperia Z smartphone can be bricked because of damaged boot.
 
If after flash your phone is dead and you have warranty - send your phone to Sony - you will get new phone.
 
If after flash your phone is dead and you do not have warranty, this tutorial is for you. Remember, during this process you can damage your phone, everything you are doing on your own risk. For 99% your phone will not be 100% functional, for example it will not be waterproof anymore if you will disassemble or reassemble it improperly.
 
 
Bricked phone symptoms:

  • can't power on after flash,
  • no lcd or led reaction for power button,
  • no lcd or led reaction for charger,
  • no lcd or led reaction if phone is connected to PC,
  • your PC can't detect your phone with vol-,
  • phone does not vibrate when holding vol+ and power together.

Repair procedure:
 
1. Firstly connect turned off bricked phone to your PC. If phone will be detected in device manager as:




qhusb_dload device

you are lucky and this is the end of the first step for you. Just disconnect phone.
 
If your phone can't be detected at all, you must connect it using testpoint. Disassemble your phone using this service manual: Sony Xperia Z C66XX Service Manuals , remove battery and connect this point on main board:

to metal shield and attach usb cable.

2. Download and install the latest Gordon's Gate Flash Driver from this post: Attached File  ggsetup-3.0.0.7.exe   3.58MB   12133 downloads
3. Download and run this s1tool: Attached File  s1tool.exe   2.52MB   6576 downloads
4. Download proper APPSW firmware for your Sony Xperia Z:
 
For C6602: Attached File  C6602.rar   16.12MB   2073 downloads
 
For C6603: Attached File  C6603.rar   16.12MB   3242 downloads
 
For C6606: Attached File  C6606.rar   15.57MB   505 downloads
 
For C6616: Attached File  C6616.rar   16.12MB   567 downloads
 
5. In S1tool choose S1 EMERGENCY MODE, press Flash button, select correct APPSW .sin_file_set file (or you can select whole firmware if you have it in order APPSW, FSP, Elabel - but you can't use .ftf flashtool files),
 
6. Press Testpoint READY button:
 

 

S1Tool.jpg
 


and if your phone is detected as qhusb_dload device, just attach usb cable. If not, perform all steps from point 1 (connect testpoint to GND and attach USB cable).
 
7. When drivers will be installed and phone will be detected, program will ask you to disconnect testpoint. Disconnect testpoint from GND and press Testpoint READY button.
 
8. After that phone will load emergency s1 loader, re-enumerate usb, load s1 loader, update boot in your phone and flash selected firmware.
 
9. Now you have to flash (if not done yet) your phone with all firmware parts (APPSW, FSP, ELABEL) using S1 FLASH MODE, phone will be fixed. Also you can flash your phone using Sony Update Service, Sony PC Companion or any other flasher like current Flashtool.
 
10. Time to reassembly your phone using service manual: Sony Xperia Z C66XX Service Manuals

Disable all firewalls, antiviruses, use good internet connection - that file is 100% ok. You must find testpoint by yourself, if phone is not detected as qhusb_dload device.

I've told you - i don't know where it is, i do not have Xperia Z smartphone. Find it by yourself:

 

 

Disassemble your phone using this service manual: Sony Xperia Z C66XX Service Manuals , remove battery and connect each golden point on main board one by one to the metal shield and attach usb cable. If your phone will be detected in device manager as flash device or something like that - congratulations - you've found testpoint.

 

Then mark it and post it for other users :)

It's a hardware problem, probably with eMMC/SDRAM, not fixable using software.

Windows is choosing incorrect driver. Just remove that device qualcom hs-usb qdloader 9008, scan for new devices, install correct driver and it should be ok.
