I was able to find an easy method of rooting and installing clockwork mod recovery on the Sony Xperia tipo ST21a (should also work on the st21i model) with a locked bootloader.

What you need:
1) a PC (preferably windows)
2) a sony xperia tipo
3) a working internet connection
4) usb cableto connect your phone
5) unlockroot pro
6) the zip file for cwm

so first of all, we need to download the program unlockroot pro [37.94MB] download link is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...CtZUuumjk/edit

once its downloaded, run the installer and follow the instructions provided. after this is installed, run it. you will be asked for a code, just enter this: URPTKVMURDKBFEYNOFUK

there shoul be obvious direction from there to root the phone

after the phone has rebooted, make sure you have usb debugging enabled (settings -> development -> usb debugging) and you will need the zip packege to install cwm which can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...rkmod-t2003069 along with the instructions on ow to install it (it's really straight foward )

thanks, and i hope this helps
