HTC Sense 4’s approach to the recent apps interface function is probably the most unique and visually appealing of them all. As opposed to rather dull and stock(ish) vertically scrolling tiles of your recent apps, you get a full preview of an app, which you can swipe left or right to the next recent app—and all in snazzy 3D. And although it is true that this isn’t the most efficient way of navigating to a recent app, not everything in life is about efficiency.
So for users of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Arc S, Pro and Neo who are getting a bit bored with their current look of the recent apps interface, XDA Senior Member Madaditya ported the Sense 4 recent apps interface to the aforementioned devi. . . READ ON »

Ever since Google unveiled Android’s latest flavor, 4.4 KitKat, users have been on the edges of their seats, biting their fingernails in anticipation of trying it out on their own devices with an official update or with custom ROMs. This is no different for owners of the aging and relatively old Sony Ericsson Xperia devices of 2011, being the Xperia Arc, Arc S, Pro, Ray, Mini, Mini Pro, Active, Live, Neo and Neo V.
Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer mikeioannina, users of the aforementioned Xperia devices will not be left out in the cold, as mikeioannina has brought Android 4.4 in the form of an unofficial CyanogenMod 11 build. Credit must also be give to XDA Recognized Developer nobodyAtall. . . READ ON »

Some devices just refuse to die, no matter how long they’ve been around. That said, a team of devoted developers has come together to bring the Linux kernel 3.0.8 to every 2011 Xperia device. The last official kernel release from Sony (Ericsson) for 2011 Xperia Devices was version 2.6.32.
XDA Recognized Developer nobodyAtall based this kernel on the ‘M7630AABBQMLZA404033I’ CAF tag, which is ‘the latest tagged release for this arch and is linux 3.0.8.’ The supported devices and the developer behind each one are as follows:
- Xperia Mini by Recognized Developer nobodyAtall
- Xperia Live with Walkman by pcfighter
- Xperia Pro by XDA Senior Member M66B
- Xperia Neo V by XDA S

The LED light found on many devices may be the only indication of notifications for many users. The downside is that the LED light, by default, is neither bright nor noticeable—and it could certainly be brighter. Users of the Sony Xperia Arc, Arc S and Pro running CyanogenMod 10 however, are enjoying a significantly brighter LEDs and reaping the benefits of such a simple modification. Sure, those who want brighter LEDs can set custom brightness values through third party apps, but the likelihood of the average user even knowing which particular value is suitable for their specific needs and wants is slim. Thankfully, XDA Forum Member om22 has created a nice little package that rids of all the co. . . READ ON »

When it comes to multi-device releases, it doesn’t get much more straightforward than a widespread Sony Xperia release. Given how close the hardware and software is between devices, it isn’t overly difficult to get a single piece of software working on a number of devices. As such, unofficial AOKP Jelly Bean was ported to 14 Sony Xperia devices practically all at once.
XDA Recognized Contributor championswimmer, on behalf of the KangXperiaProject, brings us the ROMs. However, many thanks go to the FreeXperia Team, whose work was critical to the achievement. In championswimmer’s words:

Sony has been one of the most proactive handset manufacturers as of late in releasing updates to their Android handsets, as we reported earlier this year. Now they’re rolling out firmware updates for the Xperia arc, Xperia arc S, Xperia neo, Xperia neo V, Xperia mini, Xperia pro, Xperia active and Xperia ray beginning this week. They had this to say on their Xperia Blog:

The Sony Xperia line up has been rather busy in recent weeks. With the Xperia S lock screen being ported to five other Xperia devices and ICS AOKP getting ported to 16 Xperia devices, users have had a lot to do with their Xperia devices. The trend doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon, as over half a dozen Xperia devices now have CM10 ports. Specifically, the Sony Xperia Ray, Sony Xperia Neo/NeoV, Sony Xperia Arc/Arc S/Pro, and the Xperia S.
Normally, there would be a laundry list of developers responsible for a laundry list of CM10 releases like this. That is not the case this time. XDA Recognized Developer FXP is actually responsible for all of them. In fact, FXP has released all the CM10 ROMs in the same thre. . . 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.
If you’ve got a 2011 model, however, here’s the schedule for the phased rollout: starting in late March, the Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray will get their skinned Android 4.0 goodness, while owners of the Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini and mini pro, Xperia pro and Xperia active will have to wait a month longer till late April.. . .

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.
