OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA.

Sony’s Timescape on Sony Devices Running Custom JB Roms
If you’re not familiar with Sony’s Timescape, it was Xperia’s main social media app up until the beginning of 2013, when it was replaced with Socialife by Sony. Consisting of scrolling panels of updates from your connected social networks such as Facebook and Twitter as well as displaying your call history and messages among many others, Timescape has always been a compatible with only Xperia devices running stock firmwares, with many users of custom Jelly Bean ROMs missing out.
By remixing and modifying the necessary apps of the Timescape suite from various different devices of the Xperia lineup, Rizal Lovins has made Timescape compatible with 2011 Xperia devices running non-stock 4.1 and 4.2 roms such as CM 10 and CM10.1. Installation is relatively straightforward, requiring you to edit your build.prop, wipe dalvik cache, and flash the zip file. However some prerequisites may be necessary to allow some features to function as intended, such as the Timescape widget and Rizal Lovins does acknowledge some bugs.
So if you’re running a custom Jelly bean rom on your 2011 Xperia device and miss the functionality and practicality of Sony’s Timescape suite, make sure to check out the original thread for the download, installation instructions, and more information.
