Sony Timescape UI Now Available for the LG P500
It’s always fun to take a test drive with another device’s software. Whether it’s running Motoblur’s launcher on any phone you want or getting Touchwiz on an HTC Sense phone, users generally seem to enjoy trying out what they don’t normally have. It is now possible for LG P500 users to do the same, as Sony’s Timescape UI has been successfully ported to the device.
XDA Senior Member fundoozzz, with the help of some others, was able to get the flashy Sony Timescape UI running on the P500 running Gingerbread. The original mod is courtesy of XDA Senior Member ra3al. It was originally tested on CM7, but should be usable on any Gingerbread ROM.

After that, users can access the launcher and widgets that make up Timescape UI. Additionally, fundoozzz has also provided step-by-step instructions for those who prefer to only use the widgets.
