Well, between this and Doomlord's kernel, my Play is running like an absolute dream. Cleared out the crud with Titanium, ramped up the CPU (wimping out at 1516MHz), nandroid backed up. Loving it!

Had the same thing, flash the boot.img again using fastboot then you get the bootlogo which changes to a blank screen just leave it alone for five minutes then remove the battery and count to 30 seconds then put the battery back in and boot phone.

You will have root.

Sony Ericsson in my region said that this is now being bundled with 2.3.4 so I have to wait for the September release >_<

Makes me wonder why they are releasing it to everyone else not bundled.

At least they tell you stuff. Last week I called and asked for the Xperia Neo and they said "we don't have it", it was released like 3 days ago. Support people in my carrier don't even know what's coming tomorrow >_>

Edit: Just realized you said Sony Ericsson, I'm gonna try and post on their facebook page, they rarely answer to people's question anyway lol

Ha they tend to answer most questions in my country. They rock and the Sony Style store twitter peeps are really good too.

I think because of their Mission of becoming the highest sellers of android phones in Asia/Pacific they have really opened up and are trying to keep people clued in on the brand.

Even if I ask them something they don't know they will go through the whole chain to get answers.

You're lucky folks. SonyEricsson Spain doesn't EVER answer any tweet of mine.
