Hi All,

i have been trying to root mine for a while and found the answers to all the questions are all over the place so i thought i would put them into one place for the less experienced people such as my self. All info is valid as of todays date that i am aware of (10/4/2012)

1. Is the tablet rootable?
The sony tablet S is rootable if your build is below #10. AKA kernel 10 issue

2. Can you change back your kernel/build once on #10 to get root
No, although there are some reports of random build/kernel changes after a reboot. if you notice this i suggest rooting WITHOUT rebooting.

3. Will a factory or any other "reset" turn back my kernel/build to below #10
No, see number 2

4. Are there dates for when a workaround on build/kernel #10 will be available.
No, bare in mind the guys here at XDA dont get anything but donations and do the work FREE and in their OWN time. I would love to make someone just as much as the next guy, but they have jobs. so unless you are going to pay their bills and wages for a while, best to let them do it in their own time.

5. is there a more "for dummies" type tutorial on how to use Condi's AIO tool
Not that i have seen, and to be honest i think we could use one. but do note i am sure Condi has mentioned before his tool is designed to be used by experienced users. Condi may be able to confirm this if he reads my thread. please dont go hassling his if he doesnt.

6. When is ICS coming out.
Pick a date in your calendar and check back then. no one has any dates yet that i am aware of and i have googled my backside off trying to find it. Note though, there was some sort of release although the file wasnt there for ICS in the mexico region. read into that what you will.

7. Can you Root the Tablet from an application on the Tablet (like Gingerbreak for Xperia play) if you don't have access to a Computer.
For the time being NO. Thanks to lloytizzle for that one.

8. Will the new version of the AIO tool (2.6) from Condi root my kernel #10 tablet .
No.

No need to post replies here unless you are confirming or correcting my current finds.

The intention of this post is to save you some time reading through mass amounts of posts and google searches to find nothing YET is possible to deal with the #10 issue.

i will update this post if i find anything and will of course take note of any updates from people such as condi etc.

JAVA
Hi!
My Question regards to the rooting process point 7 which is:

Choose YES for sign new custom update
"JAVA required - if you dont have, then install it, and manually run 'Sign' function)"

What does it mean "JAVA required", is it this: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

And what does it mean "manually run 'Sign' function" and what will happen if I just restart the rooting process after I have installed JAVA instead of manually run sign function?

Thank you for your answer!

I was on Android 3.2 With Kernel #10 on my Tablet S and was able to flash back to Kernel #5 with OTA via recovery, root with AIO, and install prerooted ICS.

Correction. You were 3.2 k10 and flashed 3.2.1k5 from my thread. That is a upgrade not flashing back

Hey Stifilz,

I'm a noob when it comes to kernels and flashing stuff, so can you please tell me if this is correct ?

I'm also on 3.2k10, so if I upgrade to 3.2.1k5 , I will regain the possibility to root the tablet with AiO ?

Many thanks in advance for sorting things out.

Greetz...

You download the zip of the OTA you want to flash on to an SD card, then you reboot your tablet holding down the Vol - Up key to enter recovery. Then you choose to update from Zip on SD card and flash it.

You just need to make sure the OTA you're flashing is not Kernel 10.
