    Dear,

    Still Official ICS has not been released for your Xperia Play by Sony.
    It seems that you have Installed Custom ROM in your device.
    As it is not an official Version, you have to face some major bugs as well.This is one of them.
    For more help contact nearest Customer care of Sony.
    In future Dont go for Custom Rom.

    Pleasure to help you..!!

    The old procedure does not work on the ICS upgraded xperia play as they have been by passed by Sony so follow this instructions in order to Root your Xperia Play http://www.xperiablog.net/2012/04/16/root-for-android-4-0-ics-xperia-update-now-available-guide/

    lso ensure that the necessary drivers are present in the PC to make this method work or else you might end up bricking your device if there is any problem with the flashing procedure. Also ensure have at least 90% of battery before proceeding.
    Hope this Helps.
