Question [Q] Please help me about Xperia M CWM and ROM flashing

Hi,
My bro owns Xperia M and wanted to install CWM / TWRP on it so he can flash custom ROM. I want to help him but I don't want to unlock it's bootloader. Can you please link me to threads where I can get CWM for locked bootloaders and flash rooted custom ROMs?
If this is not possible at all then please link me to bootloaders unlocking thread and kernel threads, I am just not willing to take risk as it is not my handset.

Thanks...

Hi, currently there is no CWM for locked bootloader, it is all for unlocked bootloaders. You will have to unlock the bootloader (you can find out how to do that if you search the forums) and then install a custom kernel (again, search the forums).
