All-in-One Xperia S Experience for the Xperia X10 Mini

If you own a Sony Xperia device, there’s a good chance you can run the software from many other Xperia devices. In fact, we’ve written about it a number of times. There is now a way for Xperia X10 owners to run pretty much the entire interface from the Sony Xperia S.

Released by XDA Senior Member Emperor.dk, the package includes a number of elements to help your X10 feel like a Xperia S. To use, simply download the zip and flash it in a custom recovery. If you want to uninstall, you’ll have to restore a Nandroid backup—which means you should probably make a Nandroid backup.

To make the experience more complete, Emperor.dk has also included links to other applications to supplement what comes in the mod. These include the Xperia S launcher, the Xperia S lock screen, and the Xperia S CM7 theme for theme chooser. Additionally, there are links to the Xperia S fonts, more apps, and Timescape. If you enjoy the Xperia S look and feel but don’t (or can’t) dish out the money for an upgrade, then this is a perfect way to get the experience without buying the phone.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor.
