How to install it

You need to

go to settings -> applications -> check unknown sources

download IO File Manager

https://market.android.com/details?id=org.openintents.filemanager&feature=search_result

download the backup & restore app, transfer it to your SD card, use OI file manager to find it -> tap on it -> install it

Re: Xperia Mini 2.3.4 Update 4.0.1.A.0.283

you have to use Update Service or PC Companion or on your phone

settings -> about phone -> Software update

if it's available on your country and/or network you should be able to install it

if not, you can read the steps above to manually update your phone
