Default [Q] Kitkat 4.4.2 on Xperia M?

Hello everyone,
I just bought this sony xperia m and i want to put the latest version of kitkat in it, but I really don't know where to start.
I know I may sound like a total n00b, but this is my very first experience w/ a smartphone.
Thanks!

well theres no official kitkat rom yet for the m, there are custom roms so you will have to root and unlock your bootloader to flash them all instructions are in the respective threads, also this only applies if your bootloader is unlockable and not hard locked

Wow! I would not be in any rush to install a modified ROM on an XPERIA M.
There are upgrades in the works for the XPERIA M which MAY take the phone up to an official Sony distributed/supported Android 4.3

Sony's warranties don't cover a phone while the bootloader is unlocked

Just enjoy your new phone as it is for a while.

The current JB 4.1.2 firmware is very stable, the graphics processor is VERY strong for this price range phone.

Battery life with the standard Sony distributed Android 4.1.2 is very good.

If this is your first Smart Phone and you want to broaden your knowledge base, start off with applying root access to your phone.
You don't have to unlock the bootloader to do this.
