Given the extreme sharing nature of the Sony Xperia lineup, it was only a matter of time before the recently released Sony Xperia GX had its software ported to every other Sony Xperia device. Thus, the Sony Xperia Mini, Mini Pro, Active, and Ray all got a port of the Docomo app from the GX.
Posted to the forums by XDA Senior Member Till-Kruspe, the Docomo application is essentially the launcher from the GX, along with some applications on the side. Unfortunately, many of the options for it are still in Japanese and in need of translation, so it’s hard to identify all of the features. According to Till-Kruspe:
very fast and fluid…you can add up to 12 home screens…and there is “KISEKAE” which I think a theme setting (maybe) can’t understand because it is written in Japanese. Media player with Dynamic EQ…Nice UI with a lots of setting…can play videos as well…
It’s not difficult to install either, just side load it onto your device like any other APK file. Since there are no framework files to install, it’s probably compatible with many other untested devices as well. For download links and screenshots, head to the original thread._________
