    My Sony XPERIA TIPO (ST21) with last version of system update by SONY site yesterday oct./5th/2012, works fine only with this program (ROOT):
    (flashtool-0.9.8.0-windows.exe 106,57 MB)
    Use option TOOLS -> ROOT -> Force AdbRestore hack (The only one that works!). Take care that at the moment NO other system around works fine and fully to ROOT it!
    Hurry up since SONY take the way to block also this one.

    Do not forget to offer at least a small beer (donate!) to the good guys!
