Unlock bootloader= Disable CPU rendering
Custom kernels= Adeno 200

Correct me if I'm wrong

P.S Is adeno 200 can make phone more faster? and how?

You should rather post on the thread about adreno200. People there can help you better...
Also unlocking bootloader allows you to install custom kernels on your devices and hence custom roms varying from gingerbread to kitkat...
I have used over 15-20 roms on my phone(xperia mini) and if you want a fast phone, my personal advice to you is either stay on gingerbread or migrate to kitkat.
Rest is all up to you... Its your phone use it and/or experiment with it as you want!
Hit thanks if i helped!

And yes I forgot to tell you one thing, custom kernels also supports overclocking your device that is you can run your processor at even upto 1.8Ghz rather than stock 1Ghz. This though would consume more battery but it would reduce lag.
Note that overclocking limit depends on kernel.

You don't really need to backup your data, rooting doesn't delete anything from your phone. Okay, let's make it simple - step-by-step. I'll post links after the procedure.

01. Root or unlock bootloader (I prefer unlocking the bootloader)
02. If you rooted, install CWM (ClockWorkMod) Recovery; if you unlocked the bootloader, flash a custom kernel (recovery is flashed along with it)
03. [Optional] Remove bloatware
04. Download the files from the "Adreno Booster" and "Disable CPU Rendering" threads (they are in .zip format) and copy them onto your SD card
05. Enter CWM, then choose Install ZIP from SD card (use hardware keys; vol. up = scroll up, vol. down = scroll down, home = select, back = back)
06. Reboot through CWM
07. After booting, reboot again (for Adreno Booster to take effect)

Adreno 200 is a GPU, and your ST15i has an Adreno 205. What you want to install is a mod that improves its performance.
