    Thanks to DooMLoRD over in the Xperia X10/Arc/Play side at XDA-Developers.com, he has developed a batch file (windows only) that will run the root for you!

    There isn't really any difference between the code he typed out and how you do it here, so head on over, download and root!

    Does Rooting our Xperia Play on Verizon, allow us to download any of the apps, that were suppose to come with our phones, but Verizon took away, like the Playstation App, or PS store?

    You can do that anyways, if you check the box in application settings that says "allow unknown sources"

    Unless you're talking about bravia engine, mega bass, or x-loud, then yes, you need root.

    Actually, Verizon's Xplay (R800x) is stuck on 2.3.3. PlayStation Store require 2.3.4.

    Do we need root or an unlocked bootloader? It wouldn't install on mine.

    The article on xda-developers (as of this reply, I see there have been some revisions), claims this works on locked and unlocked bootloaders.

    depends on the firmware update. If you're Verizon/R800i prior to update .62 it works on unlocked bootloaders.
