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.

Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
