CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.

Code:
/* Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */

NOTE
Should you ever face any issues, provide logs (use Google to find out how to gather those). I also need to know what build you're on - hence, you should mention the build number (or at least a date).
Hint: "It doesn't work" is not a bug report and posts like this will be ignored (and eventually removed). To keep the thread clean, try to use DevDB for real bug reports

Key Notes

  • Flashlight toggle works perfectly. Yay!!
  • Battery charging LED too works, but expecting CM to break it, again.
  • If you are going to install gapps, flash it just after flashing CM13. I used pico opengapps, flashed after CM13 booted up, got frequent Setup Wizard and GPServices error. Right then, did a factory reset. Working.

It seems like the majority of users with bricked devices have partitioned SD cards.While I can't guarantee anything, this seems to be the only possible reason at the moment. I have been testing CM13 on my C2105 for weeks, but never had that issue. And no, it's not the model number - the differences between C2104 and C2105 are rather minimal and the ROM has been confirmed working on both variants anyway.
Nevertheless, I've locked the thread and removed the download link for now, but just for the future: Don't re-partition your SD cards - in case you have already done so, format your storage before flashing this ROM! Xperia L doesn't have storage galore and the apps get bigger and bigger, I know. But if you aren't satisfied with that you better buy a new device.

Anyway, I'm sorry for the hard bricks.

EDIT: Those who have ended up with hardbricks have probably played around with the new "adoptable storage" feature, it can destroy the emmc.

I might give it a try later today when I get home.

Oh, and what is this "adoptable storage" feature, and how do I know if I have it enabled? I'm afraid of a permabrick since I recently bought this device and I won't be able to buy a new one if something goes wrong...

Edit: Can this be installed with the TWRP from corphish's app?

I installed Alpha 2 (19/12 Build).... :)

And All Basic Features and My Favorites Apps Are Working Good... :D

I'm feeling that CM13 is very smooth and fast... ;)

No problem in Power off and reboot to... :highfive:

I'm waiting for Camera Fix... :fingers-crossed:

Thank You So Much.... :good:

Huge improvement

A new build (ALPHA2) is up. Everything should be working, except for bugs mentioned in the second post - although I have been testing the build myself (as usual), I'd appreciate useful feedback. Enjoy, thread reopened...

My review: Flashed it via TWRP and it supports f2fs too... (System was in ext4 though) Boot time was less compared to LP... And yeah everything's great. It's butter smooth. No lags or what so ever! :) Battery backup is good too... But the only thing I noticed was the network type remains on 3g no matter what i do. Rest all is fine. Fm radio is missing though. Looking forward for camera fix too. Overall a splendid ROM for alpha stage. Also no hardbricks or anything... Rebooted thrice till now and no issues. Great Work.
(Pardon me if i posted in wrong place..... I'm noob in XDA)

I tried the Alpha 2 and it was pretty good for an alpha.. Jesus, I was VERY worried during the install, even of the tiniest error.

When it finished I was pretty ****ing relieved that I didn't experience a brick.

The alpha was 'stable'. I mean, things didn't force-close for me constantly, which was the experience for me with other alphas. I can't wait till the camera gets fixed.

    Hey guys,

    sorry for being inactive for the last few months - I'm now done with school and can hence focus more on taoshan. BETA2 is up with the following changes:

    - Removed unnecessary kernel modules and moved the important ones to the kernel
    - Cleaned and updated sepolicies & enabled enforcing SELinux (we can now hit the nightlies)
    - Reverted to Camera2 since it's more stable and reliable than Snap
