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.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
