Modded Xperia S Music Player Shows Up for Other Xperia Devices

It can be said without exaggeration that the Sony Xperia S has been one of the best Android devices ever when it comes to porting its software to other Android devices. Xperia S ports are simply everywhere, and range from a few applications to, in some cases, full blown ROMs. It seems as though nearly everyone wants a piece of Xperia S software love, and devs have been more than willing to hand it out.

The Xperia S ports to everywhere saga continues as XDA Forum Member Lasan has ported the Sony Xperia S proprietary music player, called MusicXS, to a range of Xperia devices including the Mini, Mini Pro, Active and Ray. The mod, which is a recovery-flashable update.zip, will install the music player along with all the libraries required for it to run properly. Says Lasan:

work fine with SoundEnhancement and Surround Effect. May be ported completed 99%

So not only are you getting the application, but also all the fun little options it comes with. As with Sony XLoud, users will be treated a modified music experience, and since the stock Android music player still doesn’t seem to understand that people want equalizers with their music, it’s definitely worth a shot for music lovers. However, there are some things users need to know before flashing. Says Lasan:

For devices other than WT19 (walkman), remove the default music files in /system/app/SemcMusic.apk with RootExplorer or Titanium Backup
For MIUI and GingerCruzt-XS, Music and all fix include to next update

Be sure that your device meets the requirements before flashing, and of course, make sure you have a Nandroid backup handy just in case.
