Dear all,

I'm trying to following this guide to install cm7 on my xperia play:
http://wiki.cyanogen....l_Update_Guide

I can't unlock the bootloader - I turn the phone off, hold down search and plug in the use cable, and nothing happens.

Just out of curiority, I tried the other hardware buttons - and pressing the back button (while the phone was off, and pluggin in a cable)

= This made the 's1download' device appear in Device manager, but none of the drivers would install for it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Phone is
Xperia Play (white)
Model: R800i
Android: 2.3.3

I have exactly the same problem with the same portable. (r800i white android 2.3.3)


I have config fastboot and adb device.
When my portable is plug-in on my laptop, with adb device, it's connected.

When my portable is plug-in on my laptop, and it's turn off, i push search button, nothing happens too =/


Can you help us ?

Thank you

Drivers definitely installed correctly and showing in device manager?
