basic stuff that I novice is still learning.

my phone came with atomic gb 7

I had issues and did the hard reset and I still had problems.

here are the directions:
Installation Instructions [ Locked Bootloader ]

1. Flash Stock .58 enhanced
2. Root and install CWM
3. Download the rom from downloads and put it on SD Card
4. Boot into recovery
5. Wipe Data/factory reset
6. Go to advanced-Wipe Dalvik Cache and go back
7. Go to Mounts and Storage-Format /System and go back
8. Flash the rom and device patch and wifi modules
9. Reboot and enjoy the Dual Core Xperia PLAY

I flashed stock, and rooted. my phone has locked bootloader.
Where can I find the right CWM? the market store and install directly from phone?

would appreciate some help. thanks. this forum has been so helpful.

That one (X-Parts) didn't seem to do anything but I found one that ran from my pc and works as described. I think it's this one but I might be mistaken:

locked bootloader
Am I underestanding correctly that you've got a custom kernel on a locked bootloader? (.58 enhanced)
I want to update to Android 4.x for some market apps that require it and can't seem to find guides. From what I have found it seems that the BL must be unlocked.
Any suggestions?

Stock .58 enhanced is Official firmware that is why you are able to install it with a Locked Bootloader. In order to be able to Flash a Costume Kernel(witch is needed for Android 4.1.2) you will need to Unlock your Bootloader.
