    Geohot Wants to be First to Root the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

    Infamous hardware hacker Geohot has a bit of a history with Sony. His Playstation 3 hacking landed him in some hot water, legally. But that isnít stopping the rebellious jailbreaker of the iPhone from venturing deeper into Sonyís product line. He has recently voiced his intention to be the first person to root the upcoming Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
    Geohot wonít have to worry about legal action, as rooting is not considered an illegal act in the US, and weíre sure heíd be happy to add the device to his growing list of projects. In fact, it is as if he sees it as his personal duty to root the device:
    I do take this whole matter very seriously. Again, itís not about me, I was on the verge of quitting this stuff last June, and I would hate to be the one who sets a reputation for hackers that all a company has to do is sue us and we back down. In fact, I want the opposite reputation set, that the more a company tries to abuse the legal system, the harder we rally back. I will be the first person in line on the launch date of the Xperia Play, and itching to get my hands on the Next GEOHOT Project.
    Given the voraciously quick nature of the Android root community, Geohot will need to act quickly to be the first to get the Xperia Play cracked.

    But... The app doesn't work on all devices, and it's not even proven to work on a single Gingerbread OEM phone.
