How to root Sony Tablet S

Got a Sony Tablet S but want to make use of some great apps like Titanium Backup, or install a custom Android ROM? Well what you need it to root you Tablet S and here’s how.

Of all the Android tablets on the market today, the Sony Tablet S is one of my personal favorites.

It features a pretty solid specification including a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, and Android Honeycomb OS, plus it is able to connect to Sony’s Playstation app, but it’s the ‘folded magazine’ look and lightweight I really appreciate with the Sony Tablet S design.

However much I like the Sony Android tablet however, there is one way in which I would improve it! And that is by rooting it so to access all the system folders and customize the experience so I can enjoy it more!
