Goodies Extracted and Ported from Xperia Play

Our ever growing list of add-ons and UI elements to make our devices unique keeps growing as time goes by. Sometimes, making them unique means to take things from several different places and combining them into one. XDA member myth999 started a thread with the extraction of the upcoming Sony Xperia Play’s PSP classic live wallpaper. But it seems that this thread has evolved into something else. You will find in the following posts to the opening post, some of Sony’s UI elements being extracted and with the ability to be installed in other devices running a minimum of Froyo (Android 2.2) or later. One of such apps is Timescape, which is classic to most Xperia devices. This is supposed to work fine for most devices running Froyo or over, but you will need to modify your build.prop to make the system think that your device is actually a SE device. The latest revision of the app has fixes for devices with LDPI screens.

If you find this useful or if you have anything that you may want to add, please be sure to let the dev know by posting some feedback.

FULLY FUNCTIONAL TIMESCAPE RETAIL ARC VERSION FOR ALL DEVICES & ALL FROYO+ ROMS ONLY

LAST UPDATE 05/04/2011 ICON RESOLUTION FIX FOR LDPI DEVICES

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE TIMESCAPE STILL DOWNLOAD AND FLASH RELEVANT ZIP FILE POSTED HERE THEN YOUR FONT WILL BE FIXED

NOTE : KINDLY CHANGE YOUR BUILD.PROP FILE OTHERWISE FB AND TWITTER WONT WORK IN TIMESCAPE

You can find more information in the original thread.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
