    Default [TUTORIAL] Root Phones w/ Android v2.2.x-2.3.x (zergRush)

    Ok, so I found this thread and found it very useful with rooting the newer Android phones.

    Here it is, enjoy...

    This method has been confirmed to work on all models of the Xperia PLAY - R800x / R800i / R800a / R800at.
    Also works perfectly with the Xperia Arc.

    WARNING: This doesn't work, however, on the Verizon Wireless R800x v2.3.2. Please update to v2.3.3 before rooting. - confirmed by paxChristos
    WARNING #2: Confirmed that this doesn't work with 4.0.2.A.0.62

    Thanks to everyone who tested this out for me & confirmed that it worked!

    NOTE: Before you attempt to root your phone, please ensure that you have the Android SDK installed. It has the adb binary within it.

    All needed files have been attached for this process to work correctly.
    Note: I didn't create zergRush. I only found the method to implement permanent root after zergRush has done its job.

    1) SuperOneClick
    SuperOneClick now has the zergRush method built-in.

    UPDATE: added v3, with newest zergRush binary (16 Nov 2011) and newer superuser files

    UPDATE: added v2, with newest zergRush binary (10 Nov 2011) and newer superuser files

    There have now been nearly 440,000 downloads of this easy rooting toolkit for various devices (see list here), and many more if you include variations/different translations, etc that use it.

    Don't be a leech, buy me a coffee/beer/etc (and use the "Thanks" button!). Imagine if every user of this tool had donated me even $1...
