Planned 4.3 and 4.4 Upgrades for Current Sony Xperia Devices

Ever since the unveiling of Android 4.4, the question that is hounding almost everyone's mind inevitably turns to when (or if) their OEMs will break them off a piece of that KitKat bar. We first heard that the current Nexus stable, as well as a few other devices, would be first in line for the...

Write Your Own Debloat Script for the Xperia T, TX, or V

Bloatware hasn't been much of an issue for Android users for quite a while now. Once rooted, the gates fly wide open to the beautiful, green pastures of customization. This provides a wide array of ways to get rid of useless, preinstalled software. From then on, you may freely take your picking. Maybe a custom...

Run Multiple Small Apps on the Sony Xperia T and TX

One of the coolest OEM-specific customizations found on newer Sony Xperia devices is the Small Apps feature. It allows you to run a small app atop your currently running application, making for a much more powerful multitasking interface. In fact, we've written about various additional Small Apps created by our community members in the past,...

Status Bar Flipper and Navigation Bar Editor for Xperia T and V

The notification bar toggles that were added in Android 4.2 have proven themselves to be immensely useful to most users. That said, they're not perfect. For example, the CyanogenMod team was quick to reverse the toggle functionality such that a tap toggles the setting and a long-press takes you to the settings page. Furthermore, it's...

LK Bootloader for Sony Xperia T Breaks the Chains Between Kernel and Recovery

Often times, we find certain aspects of flashing ROMs, kernels, and anything that needs to be installed via recovery a bit of a pain. For instance, on older Samsung Galaxy devices (anything before the Galaxy S3), having a custom recovery involves having a kernel lumped alongside because the recovery and boot partition are stored in...

An Official Alpha Release WITH Kernel Source? Who Does This Sort of Thing?

Here at XDA, we take the responsibility of carriers and OEMs to provide timely updates to their devices (and to honor their GPL requirements) seriously. There are those who do a good job (Samsung is one of them), those who don't always do a good job (HTC, Motorola, LG), and those who do a terrible job...

Make Your Voice Heard – Vote on the Next XDA Cases

At the end of last year, we started selling XDA cases with our friends at CruzerLite, and we've seen some phenomenal interest. Our current lineup is the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the Google Nexus 4---but we want to add more. So we have decided to hold a...

Sony Releases Beta Flash Tool for Unlocked Xperia Devices

When you purchase a device, it's always desirable to be able to use it as you wish. Sadly, this is often not the case. This is because most of the time, people purchase devices with a carrier subsidy. What this means is that essentially the carrier is letting you purchase the device at a reduced...

Wake Sony Xperia T & TX Screen with Volume Keys

Smartphones have become an integral part of our lives. And for many of us, heavy use can result in a bit of wear and tear---especially on the moving parts (i.e. the buttons). In case of Android, almost all hardware button functions can be performed using on-screen controls or third party apps, but losing the power...

ClockworkMod Recovery for Locked but Rooted Xperia T

When device developers are faced with a locked and unlocked scenario, things can get interesting. While many devices are either unlockable or not, there are some situations where only some devices are unlockable. Or, in the case of some Verizon devices, it started out unlockable and then Verizon shut it down. In these cases, developers...

James Bond Skyfall Theme for Xperia T Released

Sony has made it no secret that they want people to associate the Sony Xperia T with the newest James Bond flick, Skyfall. The shameless promotions have pretty much welded the movie and phone together. Now, Xperia T owners can embrace it even more.XDA Forum Member ruwsoft has released a theme pack that gives users...

Unofficial AOKP Released for the Xperia T

We initially brought you news of CyanogenMod 10 by FXP hitting the Sony Xperia T. Since then, more developers have been working on making CM10 even better for the device, and that includes XDA Recognized Developer tilal6991 and Elite Recognized Developer codeworkx. With the additional help, CM10 has gotten a whole lot better in a...
