There’s a new addition to the flavor of the Ice Cream Sandwich firmware of Sony Ericson Xperia Play. When you update it with this firmware, you’ll get a pre-rooted with Superuser and Busybox installed unit, included with ICS bootamination, deodexed ROM, libs for baseband compatibility (will only work on -64 baseband, the ones from .62 firmware) and a added Trebuchet launcher (CM9 ICS 4.0.3 one). These are just some of the features that you’ll surely enjoy . Should you want to experience ALL and I mean ALL features, then start with these easy steps in updating your firmware.

Okay so I have a little bit of an issue.. either there was a step that was forgotten to be mentioned or im an idiot.. but i think its the first option.. shouldnt i have done a wipe data/factory reset before i rebooted the system? cuz now my phone is kinda bricked until i download the flash tool and the original firmware..
i think you need to do that cos it bricked my phone too
Es were besser wen dieser person das mal richtig erklären könnte

This is a death trap YOU WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE. THAT MEANS FUCK IT UP.
If u have bricked ur phone like i did u can fix it by downloading th sonyericsson update service and install it. Then choose ur phone in the update sevice. Turn off ur phone for at least 30s then hold the back button continuously, plug in phone to pc let it do its fing.
I already try.. And brick.. Stuck at Sony Ericsson.. I cry like a shit..
But I won’t give up.. I try and try.. Now I’m already master a bit about rooting and upgrading to 4.0.3/ 4.0.4.. =)

Same here. I tried yesterday, missed looking at the below comments. My bad luck.Its stuck at the SE screen. Can someone help? i am not able to get into the fast boot menu or any kind of screen. can someone please help?
I also faced this problem, I took it to a nearby Sony ericsson service center and they restored the phone back to the original condition. No data retrieved. In India, it costed me around $5
