How To Root and Unroot Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY

Also Known as – R800a, R800at, R88i

Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Root:- An Android phone can be rooted for various reasons but the technology is mostly used to increased the performance of an android phone. Many users override the command of pre-default hardware assigned for specific tasks. This technique is only good at some extent but if you overdid the default assigned value it might damage your phone’s hardware. So my advice to every person who is using or want to use the root is that you shouldn’t change the default value of your phone hardware instead of it remove the bloatware or pre-default application installed in your phone using various apps after you performed the root on your phone.
