Default [Q] Flashing roms with locked bootloader problems

I'm trying to install an aosp like rom on my ZL. I've rooted it and installed the dual recovery for locked bootloaders.
Now where the problem starts is when I try flashing a rom.
I do a full wipe and install the rom (I've tried cm and omnirom) install gapps and the recovery again. Both TWRP and philz both say it succeeded but after rebooting my phone bricks and vibrates every 2 seconds with the led flashing red and has to be recovered with flashtools.
Any suggestions would be great

Yeah I found that out for myself. My bootloader isn't unlockable according to the dev menu, is there a way to circumvent that, or an aosp like rom that uses sonys kernel? My main goal is to fix the google play services power drain on sony 4.4 roms.
