Mod Pack for Xperia Arc Brings Big Changes
With the release of the Sony Xperia S, the Xperia S UI and applications have been making their rounds to the other devices in the Xperia lineup. For those Xperia users who don’t have some Xperia S love yet, just be patient. It’s probably coming.
For those holding on to their Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, your patience has paid off. XDA Forum Member pajoneer has released a self proclaimed big mod pack that includes a lot of goodies with many goodies coming from the Xperia S.
The mod is easy to install. Simply flash in ClockworkMod recovery and you’re off to the races. As the name implies, the mod pack is pretty big and includes a number of fun features including:
music player from Xperia S with equalizer
cosmic flow live wallpaper
Xperia S Home.apk 5×4 with rotation! (icon font fixed)
Xperia S clock widget pack
With several more mentioned and even more that aren’t mentioned, the mod brings an all-in-one type feel to making the Arc feel and act more like an Xperia S and adding some other fun features as well.
For additional details, screen shots, and download links, please visit the modification thread. As usual, make a backup before flashing. You never know when something might go wrong, and you’ll need to restore a Nandroid to fix it.
