Well incase your having second thoughts on rooting or unlocking your bootloader let me just say..
I have an r800x , the cdma American Xperia play on verizon. After unlocking my BL and rooting I was able to flash a new kernel that took max cpu from 1ghz max possible to 2ghz max possible! I was able to delete bloatware apps and mod internal storage taking max storage from 248mb to now having 3.5gb of internal storage. Ontop of that I was able to fastboot UK firmware onto my device and it runs great.
So if a faster cpu , a ton of storage space , and better operating system on your phone are NOT something you want , then dont root your phone.
But if you DO want to be using your device to its full potential then unlock it root it and you will be so happy you did.
Also, with flashtool and fastboot its pretty much impossible to brick your phone. Just like the Droid 1 was pretty much impossible to brick because of sbf files.
