Default [q] firmware help?

Hey guys. I bought an xperia m single sim (c1905) a week ago and rooted as soon as i got it. I wanted more so i tried to unlock the bootloader, but realised that my bl was not unlockable. I read on a few sites online that i can still flash 4.2.2 firmware on my phone. Is this possible with a locked bl? What are the risks involved? If so, is there a download.link for the latest 4.2.2 firmware?

1 more thing, is there any cwm recovery for locked bl?

Thank you guys for your help

Yup you can flash the 4.2.2 firmware of Xperia M Dual.
It wont void your warranty as its stock xperia rom only.
You may re flash SS M firmware whenever needed.

No Hou cant have CWM in a locked Bootloader Device.
You can use flash gordan instead to flash zips.
