Default Problems installing CWM on Xperia Ray

Hey, first of all i would like to apologise if this is posted in the wrong section, its my first post and even though i have used XDA many many time, i have never really caught onto the posting side of it!

I recently obtained a Xperia Ray of a friend and it was running gingerbread, so first of all i updated to 4.0.4A and rooted my device, and then i installed busybox ect, then after looking at the service on the phone (*#*#7378423#*#*) i found out that my bootloader was Unlockable.
as i wished to install a custom ROM, i have been looking at custom ROM's for LockedBL's and then of course to install half of them i have had to install CWM but this is where my problem begins! i have not been able to successfully install CWM via various methods, including the X-Parts App, Xrecovery PC Application, can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance,

Liam

(Again i apologies if posted in the wrong place, dont shout, im a noob i know )

I can't help you with your problem, but if your phone is built before 2012 week 11 (if I remember correctly) you can unlock it using the wotan service, despite the non unlockable status. You can check the build date on the sticker, below the battery.
