Default [Q] Xperia L flash Generic ROM

Hi, I want to flash the official generic world ROM of Xperia L in my phone. But I dont have the bootloader unlocked and I cant unlock it becouse it says "NOT Allowed"
My question is if I can flash the firmware with Flashtools if I dont have the bootloader unlocked...
I had and Xperia X8 and I can do that with bootloader locked, I dont know if its the same...

Haha what you said is pretty much it. You don't need to root not unlock your bootloader to flash an ftf.

If it says 'unlock not allowed" you simply cannot unlock it. And at the moment you can't install custom roms or kernels, but no need to worry about that for now. I mean you just wanna flash an ftf here? so yeah go ahead.
If you need a guide on how to do it, refer to this : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2337955
