How to Root the Sony Tablet S
As promised, I've published my root exploit. It's possible that this exploit will wipe your /data partition. This did not happen on the two devices that have been successfully rooted, but I don't want any nasty surprises. Please back up your applications and data if you're worried about this. There is no risk of permanent damage to the device, but by running this exploit, you assume all responsibilty.

You can root your device with the following steps:

1. Ensure your device is in USB debugging mode, is connected to your PC, and that ADB works. Instructions on this are available in this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1327139

2. Download the exploit here:

3. Unzip the full contents of the zip.

4. Run "run.bat"

Full details on how the exploit works are posted here:

I can't guarantee that this exploit will work after receiving an OTA update, including ICS. As always, when rooted, be cautious of accepting OTA updates unless you have received confirmation that the root exploit has not been patched.

If you pledged towards the bounty, details on how to donate are at the bottom of the above blog post.

Enjoy,
