Still it was great that XDA developer “Tassadar” developed MultiROM to give people who want this feature a shot.

Sony declares ‘end-of-life’ for a number of Xperia devices

With all the new devices coming out of the recently concluded IFA 2014, it seems an inevitable counterpoint that some old devices that are part of these manufacturer’s catalogs will get the proverbial axe. In Sony’s case, it recently declared “end-of-life” status to four devices – the Xperia L, M, SP and C. What this technically means is that there will no longer be firmware updates for these devices.
