Default [Q] Cannot root my Xperia Play

I have an unlocked Xperia Play R800at. It's running Gingerbread 2.3. This thing won't root. I tried unlocking the bootloader to use XDA's official guide. Didn't work. Said my phone was already unlocked. So I figure my bootloader is unlocked. But no other guide will work. The main guide I tried was DooMLoRD's rooting kit. I have all the drivers installed. But Nope. Doesn't work. Every time, my command prompt flashes a bunch failed things while the runme does its job yet at the end it says "All Done" like it did something.

I think you should try asking in the Xperia Play forum (

Have you tried this method: . It worked for me.
