Sorry if I offend anyone who's against opening new thread, but I need some guidance since I'm a complete Sony noob.

I have a C6833 and I'm interested in converting it to a Google Play Edition without losing LTE connectivity or Micro SD. If this is at all possible please guide me to the right direction by providing me some links.

I'm on stock .290 ROM with a locked bootloader.

you will never 'convert' it to a GPe, but you can run the GPe ROM, and it works well - you wont have OTA updates though. You will need to follow the guide in the General section on getting the ZU ready to flash custom ROMs

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2608708 use this thread to get the GPE rom pick the tweaked version so you can write on your SD ! but before you should start by rooting your device and backing up the TA partition before unlocking your bootloader to be able to restore the DRM keys in future , this thread will guide you through the process http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2569904
