Animate Your Images with Xperia Z1 Motiongraph Port

MG

A few days ago, we brought you news of a port of the Sony Xperia Z1-exclusive Motionshot app to all devices running Android 4.0 and up. It’s a pretty neat app that essentially generates a still image of a short video. But it seems like Motionshot isn’t the only app the Xperia Z1 has to share with the rest of the Android world, as Motiongraph will also be joining the list.

Ported by XDA Forum Member xperiaz2 who also ported Motionshot, Motiongraph works with any Android 4.0 or newer device, irrespective of OEM or ROM. And much like Motionshot, Motiongraph is another novelty imaging app by Sony.

Motiongraph allows users to create an image, where selected parts are animated, and then the image is saved as a G. . . READ ON »

LG G Flex’s “Split View” Ported to LG G2

LGGFSV

We all should be pretty familiar with split screen functionality on our mobile devices. We’ve seen it become a defining feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note series with “Multi-Window,” and Microsoft has integrated the same function into their desktop/tablet operating systems Windows RT and 8/8.1. In fact, quite recently, we saw the LG G Flex join the list with their “Split View” feature. And as expected of the XDA community, it’s been ported to the LG G2.

Ported by XDA Recognized Developer bigfau, Split View on the LG G2 seems to be stable and running without any major issues that interfere with the functionality. There are however, a few compatibility problems with c. . . READ ON »

Xperia Z1 MotionShot Camera Ported to All Android 4.x Devices

MotionS

One nifty app that was made exclusive to Sony’s latest flagship, the Xperia Z1, is the MotionShot camera. As its name suggests, it allows you to capture motion in a singular image, with a resulting similar to the featured image to the right. So although MotionShot doesn’t necessarily provide an absolutely essential function, it wouldn’t hurt to have it on other Android devices.

The good thing is, XDA Forum Member xperiaz2 has ported MotionShot to all devices running Android versions Ice Cream Sandwich and greater, meaning that the majority of Android devices will be able to create their own ‘motion shots’ with MotionShot. The port takes form as a simple APK that can be instal. . . READ ON »

White Balance Ported to All Sony Xperia Z1 Devices

z1WB

Now that the roll out of Android 4.3 Jellybean to Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra devices is well under way, some Xperia Z1 owners have noticed one useful feature that’s been made available to to only Japanese Xperia Z1 devices (aka SO-01F): white balance. The feature isn’t something very new, as it was originally introduced alongside the Xperia ZL earlier this year, and it was inevitably ported over to fellow Xperia devices, namely the Z, T, TX and V. However, it certainly is puzzling that Sony decided to keep the rest of the world from this feature.

Fear not, as it seems like nothing can hold back the XDA community from getting what they want. XDA Forum Member RyokoN successfully ported White Balance f. . . READ ON »

Xperia ZL’s White Balance Ported

white balance port

When the Xperia ZL was released, it shipped with Sony’s brand new screen calibration software called White Balance. This software allowed users to separately adjust the white balance, color saturation, and hue of the ZL’s screen. A most useful and practical addition, especially considering the importance the screen is to a satisfying smartphone experience, it’s with surprise that Sony did not include this in their latest flagship, the Xperia Z. However, worry not, as not only has White Balance been ported to the Z, the Xperia T, V, and TX can also get their hands on the cake.

The original port is for the Xperia Z, made to work by XDA Forum Member mw1kaduxx, with the other devices recei. . . READ ON »

Sony Socialife Ported To 2011 and 2012 Xperia Devices

socialife port

Since the debut of Socialife on the Xperia Tablet S in 2012 and the eventual axing of Xperia’s main social networking app Timescape in early 2013, Sony has been pushing Timescape’s successor Socialife on it’s new Xperia devices, the Z, ZL, SP and L. With all this hype surrounding Socialife, it’s inevitable that users of 2011 and 2012 Xperia devices would want to get their hands on a piece of the cake as well.

Thankfully, XDA Senior Member erorcun has made Sony’s Socialife work with the entire 2011 and 2012 Xperia lineup, supporting both Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. Unlike previous attempts at porting Socialife that not only inconveniently required changes to build.. . . READ ON »

HP’s webOS Spotted Running on an EVO 3D; Open Sourcing Effort May Pay Off

evowe

Since HP announced the release of the webOS source code, the recently abandoned operating system has grown a rather loyal following. Progress has been made in homebrew development and in custom builds for webOS native devices. Many forum members have been clamoring for a port of webOS to Android devices for several months now. Initial ports were expected to appear for the Motorola Droid or its GSM counterpart, the Milestone, since the devices share the same OMAP3 3430 processor with the Palm Pre (the very first native webOS device).

Recently an HTC EVO 3D was spotted running a build of webOS 3.0, the version that came with the notorious HP TouchPad. Originally posted by Ryan Hope (@_puffthemagic_) on Twitte. . . READ ON »
