Glad to help you.
You can root it many ways. (Flash tools is the easiest way). Download the Flash Tools and follow the steps in following link. (This is not my blog, but really helpful. Pretty much every thing is included there, even custom roms also. Credit goes to the developers)
I have installed GingerCruzt (Stock kernal).
Go for revision 8.4. Download links are there.
This is my daily rom. No bug with mine, everything works fine.
After upgrading you can easily enable dual touch. Follow the same blog, everything is there.

This is very good low cost middle range android phone.
Camera is quite good even without having zooming(3.15 megapixel).
Sony doesn't provide OS upgrades beyond 2.1 (Eclair), but I have rooted and install GingerCruzt (2.3.7) which runs very smoothly. Every function works perfectly.
Battery lasts for 2day with heavy usage, talking time near to 2 hours, browsing through wi-fi, gaming etc. Since my device has synaptic touchscreen I could enable dual touch.Now my phone is capable of handling dual touch.(To enable dual touch phone should be rooted and relevant modules should be executed using terminal emulator)
I have used this phone for more than 6 months and I have pretty much satisfied. According to my point of view I think this is very good phone.

anne, 14 Jun 2012can this be upgraded to latest android os version?Official update is not possible beyond 2.1, rather, you can do it unofficially till 2.3.
Rooting, Xrecory backup, and installing CM7 shall help.
