EDIT:After discussing it with Mills and Blagus, I will not be publicly sharing my knowledge on how to crack the boot loader. This is only temporary until we(all r800x owners) can get a more permanent solution.
BOOT LOADER IS CRACKED
suprisingly easy. I think I am the only unlocked Verizon play on the planet.
Ashergray do you have anything I can use to donate money to you? :)
I never considered it. I do have a paypal account, but it isnt a merchant one, so I dont believe I can accept any donations.
I appreciate the thought tho....
FYI, this news has already hit the front page of DroidLife: http://www.droid-life.com/2011/08/04/bootloader-unlocked-on-the-verizon-xperia-play-root-is-go/
Once proper instructions are posted this should definitely be pushed to Engadget as well...
For the most part :p
We aren't "authorized" but there are ways *cough* http://www.unlock-bootloader.com *cough*
That and they used a flaw in the web design to circumvent the check to see if non-number characters were included in the device code....
