Hello folks

Got me an Xperia Play yesterday, been wanting one since they launched. I want to get the best out of it and was told this was the forum to join to do so To be honest I am looking to do slightly naughty things with it like play ROM's and use paid apps I've not exactly paid for :P and the like, can someone tell me if that is allowed on the forums, and what isnt? If nothing like that is allowed, could someone suggest a forum that does allow it?

Also, what is the difference with rooting the phone and messing with the bootloader? Would it be possible to do what I want to do with it by just rooting it?

Thanks in Advance.
