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.

DexPatcher: Patch Android APKs Using Java

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards.
