Add Bits and Pieces of Honami to Your Current ROM

In the last few months, we’ve talked about quite a few Sony Honami-related projects. The Sony Xperia Z1 is quite a popular device, due no doubt to its aesthetic UI that has been ported to other devices by many developers and themers.

Changing the look of your device’s framework to match the Honami isn’t as difficult as it may initially look. The situation gets even easier with a guide by XDA Senior Member KuaQ, which thoughtfully explains the process of transformation. KuaQ’s guide is place where you can learn how to make simple modifications like changing the theme accent color in Settings, the system progress bar, and more. All modifications can be done within minutes and they require no special skills in smali or other programming languages. To apply these modifications, you need to use one of popular APK extractors, and thankfully, all of the required information is presented in text and image form, so you won’t get lost in the middle of the process.

The available modifications can be applied to Sony devices, but if you don’t have one, worry not. You can make use of them on other devices as well, if you only want to make your OS look like the Honami.

If you are willing to sink your teeth into simple modding, you can find necessary resources by visiting the Honami transformation guide thread.
