haha, buddy do you know what AOSP based means!! all ROMs that doesn't look like Sony ROMs are AOSP Based
so as mentioned before, AOSP based ROMs can't be installed on lucked bootloader.
if you want more info: the reason why the don't work is that without unlocking the bootloader,
you can't flash any kernel other than the stock one provided by Sony,
so you can't flash any custom Sony based kernel like DooMKernel
which works on Sony based ROMs,
and you can't flash custom kernel (CyanogenMod kernel) which is mandatory to run custom (AOSP) based ROM.
Hope that helps you.
