Hopefully we could get the latest buzzed, Jellybean 4.1.1 on this device soon. Sorry to say there is no ETA available for official release of Android 4.1.1.
Note that rooting a device losses its warranty. It is my recommendation to all new owners of Xperia Tipo should not root. If its old enough and have par knowledge of handling an Android for long years can go for it. If anything goes wrong and bricked the device, then Pamandroid will not be responsible. To entire risk is on user.
