I had both of the exact same errors as you, I'm waiting for the launcher to boot before hitting restart. I'll let you know what happens...

Download a fresh version of the exploit. Make sure you try to run it several times, there's a timing issue so it might take more than one attempt.

And read the directions. If you receive errors, abort the exploit when it tells you to abort.

Sometimes I get the error at the beginning and sometimes I don't. What's the timing issue? When am I supposed to hit restart cause I've waited for the OS to fully boot and I've tried hitting reboot right away, and either way I get "permission denied" on the second reboot... I'll keep trying I guess?

What about "run-as: Package 'com.pwn.me' is unknown" error?
I havent seen anybody else got it?

Weird that it just succeeded in 1 try for me, it might have to do with different firmware versions. Mine runs on the model SGPT111NL/S.
Can you guys tell me what model number it displays beneath the SONY logo on the back? That might give a small indication, or not. Who knows.

ANYWAY.
I promised to make a vid, here it is:

Note: Quality sucks (not screen quality, but quality quality. It does display the process)

Mine is SGPT111US/S with the latest Sony firmware. I've tried a few more times and it says system is read only in that last step... frustrating...
