Default Any news on rooting the 2.3.3 firmware?

Love the updates to the Play that 2.3.3 brought, definitely worth it imo, only problem is I don't have enough system storage space to install any new apps, and I can't delete any of the bloatware/force entire app data to SD without my device rooted...
Do we have any news on gingerbreak/another rooting program working with 2.3.3 yet? Cheers

worth loosing your root over - the updates add a lot - just sucks that i can no longer install downloaded apps lol - i still can't believe the play only ships with 400MB internal storage - total fail

Rooting was a piece of cake, and I'm totally loving my Play.
[HOW-TO] Root Phones w/ Android v2.2.x-2.3.x (zergRush Method) - xda-developers is the easiest way to root and there's no need to unlock the bootloader unless you're going to load a custom ROM, which there is not really much of a need for imho.
