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.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
