Hello!
Today I've played with my Xperia L too hard. I tried to change my android to cyanogenmod multiple times. (Again and again bootloop.)
It happened when I've done flashing from the recovery. Everything went smooth but then something came wrong,... Error.
I rebooted it and It stucked on SONY logo.
I used flashtool -> fastboot, flashmode, bootloader mode.
Unfortunately android and USB debugging are dead.
The only thing that still works is CWM recovery.
R.I.P. or not?
(My bootloader is unlocked.)

P.S. Sorry for my bad english and thanks in advance.

You did not mention if you tried booting after a factory reset (clearing data and caches)

Of course I tried. System is not even loading up. Everything ends on SONY logo or CWM recovery.
I think that partitons are blank.
I got stock ROM on my HDD. I think i can convert .tft to .zip and then through another phone/adapter do the copy to sdcard.
Is it the same as flashing through the Flashtool?

Hmmm
I already tried to install .zip firmware but "Instalation aborted." after "Instaling update."
Solution?
Phone can't even charge the battery.

To upgrade to Cyanogenmod you need to have the latest sony update for your device. (4.2.2)
You also need to have the latest CWM on your device. For the newer updated roms ( Cyanogen,Carbon....)
And ofcourse you need to whipe everything before proceding..... factory reset,clean cashe and dalvik....
Try flashing it with Thunderzap...
Thunderzap 4.6 is designed for kitkat roms.
Works perfectly with flashing it and running on them.
Best of luck.

PS: I had the similar issue like yourself on start. I was stuck...
The thing is i flashed roms true custom kernels such as THUNDERZAP or PHANTOM...
Never worked true flashtool.
I only flashed custom kernel true flashtool and stock rom.

Yes.
Maybe you won't belive me, but I tried custom kernel sec before you posting.
It works now. And problem was my recovery. It died on symlinks.
And as u wrote I tried Thunder Kernel + Thunder Stock recovery.
Everything went smooth I installed Carbon without problems.
Anyway thanks and again sorry for my average english.
