Smooth Ion Brings Tweaks to Stock Xperia Ion ROMs

Tweaks and mods can be fun. They add functionality and customization not usually found within the framework of most Android devices. However, when there are a lot of tweaks you enjoy, it can be a pain to find and install them all. That’s why there are tweak and mod packs out there that give you a bunch of mods all at once. For Sony Xperia Ion users, there is a mod that packs in quite a bit.

Called Smooth Ion, it was released by XDA Senior Member ganeshbiyer. It requires users be running a stock ICS ROM and that it be deodexed first. The features are as follows:

What is “Smooth ION”?
Collection of apps.
Build prop tweaks.
Init.d tweaks.
What does “Smooth ION” contain/do?
Xperia GX Home Launcher. (credit serajr) (not in At&t version)
Jellybean Status bar with Sense 4 recent Apps. (credit ou! & DdcCabuslay)
JB Adreno_Drivers_V3
Latest Sony Xperia V Walkman. (credit Rizal Lovins Sundanesse)
Google Now v4. (credit ReekoTubbs)
Add Jellybean Keyboard (not in At&t version) and Hackers Keyboard (my personal favorite ).
Adds init.d support if not there already.
Adds init.d tweak scripts.
Adds tons of build.prop tweaks.
Delete unnecessary apps.

The pack brings various tweaks and other goodies to Xperia Ion users. To install, just flash via ClockworkMod recovery. The zip wipes cache and Dalvik for you so no need to worry about that.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat.
