Post number one did it for me Rooted (Locked Bootloader) Phone - App Removal (Safe List) - xda-developers Contrary to some folks here, the storage is an issue for me, since I swap cards for media. It looks like a person could yield almost 700 mb of user app space and no need to adb push apps (which can be problematic). Sure hope the US version is just as easy to root I used Gingerbreak on my Acer A500 and same app is used for the Play. added: Anybody able to wifi tether using the Play? I use my Incredible for this and need the function.
