Well first thing to say is I am glad I got the extended warrany through Verizon because the phones touch screen took a crap. Got a replacement and it had 2.3.4 installed from factory. I thought well no root for me now. After about a week with the new phone it wouldn't power on. Got them to send me a new phone (Refurb this time) and yay had 2.3.3 and it was even rooted for me... Thanks Verizon. All is good now and am glad everything worked out because and unrooted Xperia Play has almost no room for apps, especially running 2.3.4. Can't even tell that this phone was used so seems as though someone rooted it didn't like it and sent it back for a different phone. Win for me though and am happy to have root once again.
