This thread explains everything. Is it possible to use this workaround to get CM11 working for us without unlocking the bootloader? (Even though Rachit Rawat, [NUT] and dj2tusk have found another workaround.
Sony Xperia L C2104 with Stock ROM
Phantom Kernel 6.1

If someone can do that, it will be fantastic!
Unfortunately I can't unlock bootloader of my xperia l, and if this is possible then it's the only way for me to have cyanogenmod!

They found a way to get CWM on the phone, but not running custom ROM's with a locked bootloader, so if this could be adapted, it would be cool, but their work has nothing to do with this.

Hey.
The trick is really simple. We load cm ramdisk by patching any script which is executed by init. For example /system/bin/nfc_check.
However there's one catch. Since we can't change the core zimage, the stock zimage should be compatible with cm android version. 4.1.2 = cm10 in case of Xperia S. Thus it is safe to assume that cm10.1 can be booted on L. Only thing we've to worry about are the graphic drivers. Infact, Sony 8255 device kernels could run stock, cm9, cm10, cm10.1. Android sdk version was determined by busybox GREP and ramdisk was loaded accordingly.
I'll let you know when I chalk out my plans.
