We unfortunately don't even have Root access yet, despite the unlocked boot loader. Some people over at XDA are trying to gain root access by modifying the system image and flashing it, tho. Altho this is tried on the xperia Arc, it should work on the play as well.

The 2 main people developing the image dont even have an Arc! but one of them FrAsErTaG is expecting a Play this week which can only be good news for us Play owners!

hopefully they'll get both sorted soon and some of the bloatware can be gone.

It fell through unfortunately - handset got stuck in a boot-loop.

There just don't seem to be many Arc owners out there and none of them are devs.
I don't know if the supply issues have played a part in that, whether devs have been holding off for the bootloader-unlocking site to go live or what.

I'm just hoping that SE haven't burnt too many bridges with the X10...

i am really surprised Paul hasn't made anything yet, he made a few custom rom's for the pulse and they made the device 1000% better,The reason i went ad free.

Yeah it's weird that Paul doesn't root the Play (so Arc too), he's the only major dev to have a new SE and able to root it now that it's unlocked.
I think he's busy in work for 10 days btw.
One major thing that pushed me to buy the Arc was to know that Paul has a Play so he will root it and release some quality roms, I am willing to take a paid membership but not before he does something. Also if the SGS2 will get root before the Arc and that the price decrease quickly I will switch then...

Yeah, I meant to post here earlier to say that the Arc had been successfully rooted and that it was merely a matter of time before the Play would be too.

Ignore my previous post if you saw it. Did not see the link. Rooted my PLAY last night. Seemed fairly straightforward.

Which is really good, but with all the assistance SE are giving to devs, you'd think there would be a stock rom by now, but theres absolutely nothing.

All this geohot malarkey must've really annoyed the dev community.

Well, SE's "assistance" consists of barring development for the grand majority of phones (the carrier-subsidised ones) and not allowing phones where development can be made (phones with unlocked bootloaders) to be updated at all: SEUS doesn't work for those, and we only have Flashtool, which in turn requires a locked-bootloader phone to get the ROMs from.

Also something I've seen, for those who haven't updated to 2.3.3 theres an app out there called "gingerbreak" it roots your phone without unlocking the bootloader, something i wanted to do, but alas I updated my phone as soon as I got it... :D

Heres hoping Gingerbreak is updated. But this phone isnt seen much attention on the development side it's sad to say

It won't be.

GingerBreak makes use of a specific exploit that has been patched in the 2.3.3 update for the Arc.
It's also been patched by Google in 2.3.4.

So it's not a matter of 'updating' GingerBreak, it will never work again.
That door is closed.

Well balls. Looks like I am unlocking my bootloader after all...

Something to clear up, I was gonna ask on XDA but I am still a noob and no rights to post in the developer forums. I brought my Play off Amazon, Sim free. Is the bootloader locked? I heard that sony were only locking the BL on simlocked contract phones.
