Flyme OS Ported to the Xperia Neo V/L
You may remember reading or watching our review of the Meizu MX, a well spec’d device that shipped with a heavily themed and modified version of Android 4.0.4 known as Flyme OS. You may also remember seeing that this new flavor of OEM specific Android was ported to the AT&T Galaxy SII. It seems that Flyme OS is proving quite popular, and has now also been ported to the Xperia Neo L & V, with a version for the Xperia Arc also on the way thanks to XDA Senior Member emwno.
Now when I said that Flyme OS is heavily themed and modified I wasn’t joking. It seems as if Meizu tried to completely cover any trace of the stock Android experience, so Flyme may not be for everyone. However, that might just be why some people seem to love it.
This particular port is still something of a work-in-progress, and as you’d expect, there are bugs. Most of the main functionality is there, but the one thing that may put you off is the lack of 3G data. 2G, however, is working. It might not be usable as a daily driver just yet, but if you’re the curious type, this certainly looks like it could be worth a shot. Head on over to the development thread for more info.
