My adb was being funky. I found a post somewhere else through Google where someone had to rename their adb.exe file to adb.exe.exe, reboot their computer, and rename the file back to adb.exe. I did this as a stab in the dark, and my command prompt suddenly began working for me. Tablet is currently rebooting for a third time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

EDIT: SUCCESS! Thank you, djrbliss.

I tried to use the exploit after a factory reset, and I can't get it to work.

Got it working. Next step is CWM and then a nice fresh cup of awesomeness. Thanks Dan. Expect a donation your way.

Try running the .bat file again, it happened to me first time, but when I tried it second time it worked.

When I run the bat file the second time, I get an error related to the files that the exploit handles:

I guess it is not so "easy" to get CWM on the tablet. As I know, CWM is part of kernel and this is signed on the Sony Tablet S ....

@Dan:
Is it right and do you see a opportunity to get CWM on Tablet S?

I just uploaded a new version of the exploit that should fix this problem. Just unzip it, execute "run.bat", and let me know how it goes.

If anyone has been having any problems with the exploit, please try the new version here:

Thanks. I'll try it out now!

Edit: I'm still getting the same end result. Should I wait for the device to boot fully to the launcher, when it asks me to press a button before it continues?
