How to Root the Sony Tablet P

The Sony Tablet P and the Sony Tablet S both were the Sony’s Android tablets that offered a nice combination of Google’s Android OS and Sony’s great hardware. These devices have also been warm welcomed by the developers and maybe that’s why they now have a root method for themselves.
