    Phone Info:
    Android: 2.3.3
    Baseband: 7x30a-aaabqmazm-1290_21-62
    Build: 3.0.1.B.0.285

    So I have tried to root this phone with doomlords root script, superoneclick, and flashtools and none of them have been succesfull.

    Superoneclick hangs on step 7, I have tried all of the "fixes" for that problem and none of them have worked.

    Doomlords trys to write/modify files and each one says access denied then it says complete, phone restarts and no root.

    Flashtools just gives me this in the log:
    16/007/2012 08:07:19 - INFO - Running part1 of Root Exploit, please wait
    16/007/2012 08:07:40 - INFO - Waiting for device
    16/008/2012 08:08:40 - INFO - Forced stop waiting.
    16/008/2012 08:08:40 - INFO - Running part2 of Root Exploit
    16/008/2012 08:08:40 - INFO - Running rootit2
    16/008/2012 08:08:41 - ERROR - Cleaning rootit files
    Mounting /system R/W

    Any one know anything else I can try or if I'm not doing something right? thanks in advance.

    Figured it out. Zergrush exploit was patched with the AT&T build .285 update. So this is what I did.

    1. Download flashtools
    2. Download the .270 build Xperia_Play_3.0.1.B.0.270_ATT.rar
    3. Flash the older build
    4. Use flashtools to root
    5. Update back to .285

    This way your still with the r800at builds and not the generic r800a builds. So you get to keep your hpsa+

    I lied after updating back to .285 with the pc companion it lost root access...
