Root for Sony Tablet S Now Available on a Fully Automated Windows Script

Rooting a device can be some sticky business. In some cases, it’s as easy as using one of the well known one click solutions, such as SuperOneClickRoot. Others, however, require some cunning such as manually patching files and using ADB.

Once root is established though, it’s work from the community that makes that root seem less imposing and easier to obtain for the less technically challenged. It is in that spirit that XDA Member Condi has taken a prior root method for the Sony Tablet S and turned it into a simple to use Windows script. The modifications made over the prior version of the root method include:

to eliminate problems like ‘com.pwn.me’ error etc.
timing is correct,
it goes fully automatic,
disabling mpt device automatically, and reenabling,
modded to work on 64 and 32bit systems,
(tested on winxp 32bit, win7 64bit).

The script is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and has been tested on Windows XP and Windows 7. Simply make sure the proper MTP driver is installed, download the script, run it and you’ll be seeing that Superuser prompt in no time flat. It doesn’t get too much more simple than that.

So for anyone who was waiting for an easier way to root their Sony Tablet S, you can find the download link and additional information in the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
