Default [Q] Xperia SP - flashing to KitKat from locked Fido

It's been a long while since my last flash.
I also remember quite clearly to NEVER TRUST the posts ppl make.
I won't get into details cause I'll bash in my keyboard.

If some one could confirm if the following is what I think has to be done.

#0 Root Device
I have Build Number 12.1.A.0.266

#1 Backup the original rom. ( Just in case )

#2 Unlock it.

#3 Flash Kernel with recovery mode enabled.
Which one? TWRP?

#4 Flash FXP303-cm-11-20140120-UNOFFICIAL-dogo.zip.
Is it the full rom or do I need to flash a main rom before then the above( update) ?

#5 Flash 4.4.2 rom?

#5 Flash Google apps.


Thank you in advance for your help.

Considering your device is from Fido, I don't think you can unlock your bootloader, which is needed in order to flash any KitKat ROM at the moment. However, you can flash CM10.2 on your device.
Current: Moto X XT1058


Previous phones: Moto V3 -> W350 -> W910 -> Samsung S5560 -> X10 -> G Note -> Xperia Mini Pro -> Xperia Pro -> Xperia P -> Xperia SP

Say what...I need to unlock the boot loader?
The is no way to brute force it, delete it, wipe it, crack it or bypass it?

I found this on Sony's support page:

Instructions

First, you should confirm that it is possible to unlock the boot loader of your device by checking the service menu. In your device, open the dialler and enter *#*#7378423#*#* to access the service menu. If you have a tablet, click here to learn how access the service menu.
In your device, tap Service info > Configuration > Rooting Status. If Bootloader unlock allowed says Yes, then you can continue with the next step. If it says No, or if the status is missing, your device cannot be unlocked.
However, it should be noted that most (if not all) career branded phones cannot be unlocked. It sucks, I know. My XSP can't be unlocked either.
Current: Moto X XT1058

And if you can unlock boot loader flash the right zip. Not the dogo one, that's for another phone. Use huashan (I hope I spelled that correct).
