i hava a problem. i bought this xplay from used phone shop that just dissapered all of a sudden and now i thought i was getting lucky that this xplay was on android 4.0 ICS when all a long it was just ROM version. now i cant do anything much with it. what can i do to get rin of ROM and back to gingerbread so i can use it properly?? pls help
since one and half year i got it, i'm not living a day without using web or apk.
as sony device, some unuseful apps no removable (but removable with rooting)
but still a rom bug (i don't visited sony to know if they fix the problem) which always been present: when wifi is activated of when 3g loses network, some apps are turning "on" (facebook, latitude, maps and others...) and screen and haptic keyboard going uncontrolable, phone opening apps (like web browser or camera...) tip: lock screen off and press one to turn on, and kill many tasks unuseful (at this moment) as possible but keep turned on antiviruses, protect media scanner (don't worry, vitalic apps will automatically re-turn instantanly)
xperia pro (that i've got too, hasn't it bug)
solid device, it fallen many times these last monthes and no problem (exepted previous which explained)
and with android os i got the best part of hi-tech feature: media player, web browsing, videogaming with playstation app and android games apps, and retrogaming using emulators and swiping analog pad.
my biggest regret: playstation mobile games purposed is too pooverly! (while emulation is increasing performance and is here to be proud of acquisition)
Still a great phone. Shame they never made a successor.
Really could have gone places.
Still, great phone.
Great little phone, Screen could be a little bigger and, CPU a bit faster, but there is overclocking software on the Google play store to sort that, so have mine running at 1.9Ghz, instead of the standard 1Ghz. :)
Have found the game pad easy to use although the shoulder pad buttons are a little sensitive. Touch screen is great although have noticed when it's laid flat on it's back the screen becomes unresponsive sometimes. sliding mechanism is built well, it's a good all rounder. The only drawback is OS updates have been stopped due to compatibility issues with the handset. Shame really, with the right software and decent mods, this phone can still pack a good punch with current phones. Full HD on camera isn't supported which to be honest, should've been an option. Overall I'd give it 4.5/5, it has it's faults.. But it always makes people stare when I slide it open to reveal a gamepad and start playing PS classics! :)

The best thing I can suggest is for you to backup your files and hard reset your phone - Ensure that your memory card is still good since the pictures is save directly on the micro sd

Truly an amazing idea for an android phone... with the PS controls and all, I really love that about the phone. But I would really love it even more if they made an Xperia Play 2 with much better performance, dual/quad core, more RAM, and for goodness sake bigger Internal memory... it is a Gaming phone after all :/
