Sony Tablet S has been successfully rooted
I have successfully rooted the Sony Tablet S. I will be publishing detailed instructions in the next few hours. Please be patient, I promise they will be online soon.
A few words of warning. I'm not going to have time to automate this root process into a one-click script, or provide technical support. I'll be sure to provide enough details so that root can be achieved by others, and hopefully someone else will step up and automate the process for those who aren't comfortable with ADB.
Another downside is there is a very real chance that exploiting this bug requires wiping the /data partition of the device. On the device I successfully rooted, /data remained intact, but this may not always be the case. Of course you can back up your apps, contacts, etc. beforehand and restore them after the root is complete.
Stay tuned for an update with the full instructions.
