Play With Voltages On Your Xperia Neo and Arc With SetXperia

There are several advantages on having a rooted device. One of them is that it allows you to install apps that would otherwise be barred by the device itself. The other advantage is that this allows you to do other fun things like making your device faster and/or more battery efficient. XDA member inteks has released a tool that he was working on for his Xperia Neo. Basically, this is like SetCPU but with a more dedicated focus on the Xperia devices. This program will allow you to change frequencies (overclocking), play with voltages (undervolting), and it also takes some functions from other similar apps like SetCPU, No Frills, and IncrediControl. You have to keep in mind that the heart of these functions do not lie in the app itself but rather in a custom kernel that enables all of these. So, if you have a rooted device running stock kernel, you will likely not be able to do much.

Please take it for a spin. The dev just recently released an updated version with several bug fixes, so please leave your feedback. Lastly (and as always), be careful when you play with the processor settings as this has the possibility of damaging your device.

Overclocking Undervolting System Tweaks Tool for Sony Erricson Xperia Neo Arc

now modified(and optimized) it to work with my NEO (arc play X10 X8 and maybe others should work too).

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
