Hi guys, I just got my hands on a Xperia ZL... it's quite neat! But I wish I could install CM or a custom rom on it. Ok, I tried to check the bootloader and it states:

Rooting status:
Bootloader unlock allowed: no

Is it really locked?? I wanted to unlock it to change to a diferent phone career (which now is not really a problem), but now it seems I won't be able to install a custom rom can it be done? Do I need to specify any other characteristic in here?

Damn, I haven't done anything to this device! I don't understand why it is locked like that Some guy wants to charge me for doing it (I bet he will try to get one of those unlock codes from unlocking sites), but then I think it will be impossible. Thanks for the help!

No problem!

One good thing is that you can flash stock based Rom's, and we have one of the best out there in Niaboc's ExistenZ Rom.

Flash that Rom, and used the xposed modules, and you can manipulate it to your liking just as much as aosp or CM roms.

Especially xposed modules like "HK Themer" let you install CM themes to stock roms!

Give it a shot! ---> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2385313
