I have used it to get rid of any bloatware on my device and saved alot of memory id reccomend it or fast uninstall on the android market

    First, you need to root your phone. Then you can uninstall using a root explorer app or an app like Titanium Backup or MyBackup Pro. I've never used root uninstaller before, but it looks like it can do the same thing. I'll move this thread over to the Xperia Play - All things root subsection so you can find some info on how to root.

    Yes, you need root to uninstall bloatware.

    I think Root uninstaller is a specific for another phone type (i.e. doesn't work with xperia play (or atleast the full version doesn't) .

    I've used both Titanium Backup and My Backup Pro, and I like titanium backup better.

    Root explorer is for people who feel comfortable maneuvering around linux file structure, I'd suggest staying away from using that, unless you have previous experience with linux (or just wanna learn)
