You're probably the smartest person I've ever seen, cause you apparently do magic
Repair shops should totally hire you, since they often need an eternity to do their job.

i only wanted to say that this thread is completely unnecessary.. this phone is more than 2 years old... last update was i think 1year ago.. so there is nothing new... tutorials for unlocking BL (2nd March 2012) and for rooting (17th June 2013) are here for more than a year...and tutorial for instaling CM you can find in almost every CM thread... thats all I wanted to say ... have a nice day

Big thank to DooMLoRD, who's is making all this awesome tools and stuff to make our Xperias alive again.
Your method is long and unnecessarily beating around the bush. Here's a much quicker way (how I did it in less than half an hour):

1) Copy the ROM zip to your internal storage
2) Unlock bootloader with Sony's info on their site.
3) Extract boot.img from the ROM zip / kernel zip.
4) In fastboot mode,
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot reboot
5) Go into recovery while it's rebooting, wipe everything & flash the ROM zip.

TBH, DoomLord's stuff is not required, never really was for me..
Sure, it's good stuff, but not required in this case..

The tutorial is good, it's just unfortunate, is that after more than two years, yet no one has been able to unlock the bootloader problem that allows not be unlocked.

Hey, hey, hey,

where do you type that code in? In terminal emulator on a phone or maybe cmd on a computer? I've seen a lot of tutorials ordering to type a code, but none of them actually explained how and where you have to write it.

Thankss!

You use fastboot.exe or the fastboot binary for linux, same one that you used for unlocking bootloader..

Finding something to type into terminal emulator is pretty rare, and it'll usually be specified that you need to type it there..
