Default Should I update to 4.3? And some questions

So hello, I'm new here on xda developers but I always checked the site

I purchased this mobile two days ago. Already rooted but I haven't updated to 4.3 cuz I heard that there are lots of bugs.

So what should I do? Is wi-fi improved? And how I can backup my files, cuz I installed many games and I don't want to do it again.

Also, will I have to root it again?

Wifi is improved
If you update via PCC or OTA, you won't lose data. However if you flash via flashtool and tick "wipe data", you will lose data
Lastly you have to root again and there's no root method out yet which does not involve wiping data.if you have to root it again, you WILL lose your data as all the methods indirectly require you to do so
By the way, updating via Sony Update Service (SUS), wipes data

Okay, I will update from Sony PC Companion. So FolderMount won't work

Wish there was easy root method...

Anyone working on it?

I've heard that the devs are busy. However they might work on in it once the latest update is out. A new update has been certified which might be a bug-fixing one. Should hit us mid-March.

Oh as for your first question, i think you should update.
The only bugs i faced was that music led pulse does't work all the time (the light just stays on and doesn't blink)
Also FB calender sync does not work.
Other than that 4.3 is FAR better than 4.1.2 in terms of performance,looks and everything else. Go for it

Once rooting gets here, yeah sure. Using titanium backup.
And you wouldn't lose data now via PCC so no problem

4.3 is horrible, I've used it for 4 days... constant lagging, sometimes fc's, even random reboots :-\ This is not how this phone should work :-\ Now I have eXistenZ and it's better but still not as good as it should.
It would seem like ram management issues.
