Hi I want to use the new release Kitkat 4.4 ROM for Xperia ION posted on this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2590849

How can I install it if I have my bootloader locked @MrGezz @RaymanFX @Optimus @ARNOB @AshRoller
Please I want to use and test this ROM.

Thanks for your help.

Unfortunately you can't without the custom kernel which requires the bootloader to be unlocked.

Also, tagging the other devs and members for a common question is not a good thing
