Xperia Arc, Neo and Ray Receive 15-Button Status Bar

Xperia Ray 15 Status Bar

Some of the most underrated modifications that developers make  are the status bar widget modifications. Being able to pull the status bar down and change everything from 2G and 3G (on some phones, even 4G), turning Bluetooth and WiFi on and off and even having a flashlight toggle.

XDA Senior Member hansip87 released a modification for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray that gives Ice Cream Sandwich users a 15-button status bar. The developer is also adapting the mod for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. The modification is pretty simple and actually includes more than one mod. Not only is there a 15 button status bar widget included, but it also includes a 6-in-1 mod, specifically fo. . . READ ON »

Workaround for the Xperia Neo and Xperia Arc 0% Battery Issue

zero percent

For the unaware, there is a bug for some Sony Ericsson Xperia phones—namely the Xperia Neo and the Xperia Arc—which causes the battery gauge to misread the charge as 0%. Though there is no inherent danger, the bug is still annoying. The bug primarily appears when users downgrade from 2.3.4 to 2.3.2. XDA Senior Member Bazoocaze has posted a workaround for the Neo and Arc to make the 0% bug a thing of the past.

FuelGaugeApp fixes the 0% bug and gives users accurate battery monitoring. Using it is very simple—just install it like you would any other 3rd party apk. The patch has also been integrated into several kernels, some of which are ICS friendly. Despite the ease of use, the method itself is a l. . . READ ON »

Guide to Root, Bootloader Unlock, and more with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo

Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-Neo

When a phone gets rooted, things can go a little haywire. The guide to get root is separate from the guide to unlock the bootloader and those are separate from the guide to install a custom recovery, etc. Then there comes the issue of not having the most popular phone out there and development isn’t what it should be. Download links get broken, methods become old and things just go down hill.

Well, thanks to people like XDA Senior Member vimjam, that won’t be happening to users carrying the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo. vimjam has released an updated method that will give users root, unlock the bootloader, install ClockworkMod Recovery and walk new users through installing a ROM.

The process sounds run of . . . READ ON »

After Samsung, Sony Ericsson has also announced its plans for Ice Cream Sandwich updates. Also, not unlike Samsung, only its most recent models will get the update, exluding, for example, 2010’s Xperia X10.

Play With Voltages On Your Xperia Neo and Arc With SetXperia

Setxperia

There are several advantages on having a rooted device. One of them is that it allows you to install apps that would otherwise be barred by the device itself. The other advantage is that this allows you to do other fun things like making your device faster and/or more battery efficient. XDA member inteks has released a tool that he was working on for his Xperia Neo. Basically, this is like SetCPU but with a more dedicated focus on the Xperia devices. This program will allow you to change frequencies (overclocking), play with voltages (undervolting), and it also takes some functions from other similar apps like SetCPU, No Frills, and IncrediControl. You have to keep in mind that the heart of these functions do n. . . READ ON »

Various Forums Added – LG Thrill 4G, Sony Xperia Neo, and HTC Jetstream

logo

Just when you thought that we had had it with forum additions on this site, we go ahead and give you more places to play around here. In this last induction of devices into the XDA family, we are bringing one of each flavour… err, manufacturer. First, we added the Sony Xperia Neo, the latest one of the newly released Xperia family, which is a rather standard device for this day and age equipped with a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB ram, 3.7 in screen, and every possible lock that Sony can put in the bootloader (calling for devs… wink, wink). Next up we have the LG Thrill 4G, which is LG’s next iteration of 3D camera equipped devices. This one is indeed fully loaded with a full HD video out (1080p), Gingerbread, a . . . READ ON »

Skype 2.0 With Video Support Ready for download

image_thumb423

XDA member aoprea informed us about Microsoft’s new acquisition: Skype. The latest version is now ready for download, supporting video calls. Unfortunately, not all devices are supported. In fact, only a few will be capable of using this:

Google Nexus S
HTC Desire S
Sony Ericsson Xperia neo
Sony Ericsson Xperia pro

The latest version also features a major UI overhaul and SMS support.
We wonder why it´s only supported on a few devices, having great phones with front facing cameras. If you are one of the lucky owners of any of these devices, you can get the app on the market or directly in the Skype page.

Let us know your comments please, perhaps we can make Skype re consider and include some more.
