So probobly you will need to unlock your bootloader to install custom rom. Not every rom require it but most of them.

1.Here you've got tutorial to unlock your bootloader

I've been using Xperia U since last year. I would appreciate if someone could guide me in easy steps how to flash and install a new ROM in my device. I am tired of the interface and phone is working slow and giving me trouble.
P.S I'm a noob in this field.
