Make Your Transformer Prime Home Screens Look Like Xbox 360

With the Asus Transformer getting a little home screen love, it was only a matter of time before someone would figure out an awesome way to modify the home screens of its younger brother, the Asus Transformer Prime. Since tablets bridge that gap between mobile devices and computers, their screen size is ideal for not only mobile operating systems like Android, but they can also be skinned effectively with UI’s designed for full sized TVs or computer monitors. An example of this would be the Xbox 360 Dashboard.

The example is not a coincidence, as Transformer Prime users can now make their tablets look and feel like the Xbox 360 Dashboard. XDA Forum Member Charlos_OOO has written up a very nice tutorial with a list of all the software required to make the Transformer Prime look very much like the popular gaming console. To be frank, this process takes some time so don’t start if you have pressing engagements in the near future. The software list required to make this all work is quite long as well. According to Charlos_OOO, you’ll need at least:

ADWLauncher EX
DesktopVisualizer
DesktopVisualizer ImageCrop (Trial)
Multipicture-LiveWallpaper
FolderOrganizer (light) … to get a text-style app-launcher-Pop-up
A 2D-graphics-tool of your Choice

From here comes one of the longest three step processes on XDA, which each step being broken down into many sub-steps. Don’t be alarmed, however, as Charlos_OOO has written out the instructions beautifully so even those who aren’t as Android savvy can understand them. It just takes a long time.

Additionally, Charlos_OOO has put up a few pieces of opinionated information for discussion, such as the ideal Android launcher that would improve over all the current Android launchers. While not a part of the tutorial, it is an interesting set of fun and awesome features that were suggested.

More information, the full process, screen shots, and more can be found in the original thread.

Microsoft Reaches Pre-Install Agreement With New OEMs

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
