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.

Would the LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...
