Did you put your TA backup back onto the phone before relocking?

No I don't have TA backup .. I unlocked my bootloader without making TA backup

Default PC companion solution maybe !!

Now I'm trying to repair my phone by Sony PC companion, it's downloading the software update now.. hope that this is a good solution.. I can stop if not because it needs 2 hours and more to complete, because of my slow connection...

DONATE TO ME
It should work fine after you use PC Companion.

It wont boot as your using a non Sony kernel (has recovery). If you flashed a stock, non modified kernel before you locked your boot loader it would be fine.

If for some reason PC Companion cant fix it, just unlock the bootloader again and flash a stock kernel thats not been modified and then relock your bootloader and it should work fine.
