Yes a pity really and I cannot understand why they needed to fix the hole
What's the problem in rooting the device? Is it Google that obligated Sony to fix this? And then all the phones that easily rootable?
By the way what do you think there's the possibility to find a way to root this device with "broken" firmware or not?
Maybe if you can find a way to downgrade the firmware... all we know nothing is added in new firmwares really only "holes" fixed
If I could have found a PRS-T1...
