James Bond Skyfall Theme for Xperia T Released
Sony has made it no secret that they want people to associate the Sony Xperia T with the newest James Bond flick, Skyfall. The shameless promotions have pretty much welded the movie and phone together. Now, Xperia T owners can embrace it even more.
XDA Forum Member ruwsoft has released a theme pack that gives users all the ringtones, images, and other theming bric-à-brac to match the experience users get with the James Bond edition of the Xperia T. This includes some elements within the OS itself that get a little 007 goodness.
To install, users need root. From there, it’s downloading the file, and using an archive manager to remove the files. Then, use your favorite root file explorer app to copy the included APK to system/vendor/overlay/framework/. Finally, reboot and your phone should have a lot more James Bond.
There are a couple of mirrors as well. One of them contains a copy of the APK in .bin format. Users simply need to change the extension back to APK. Other than that, users haven’t reported any real issues. To learn more, check out the original thread.

Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
