“Transform” Your Xperia into an Xperia M2 in Just a Few Steps
Sony’s Timescape UI is one of the most eye-pleasing custom Android interfaces currently available. Many consider it to be elegant and minimal, which has lead to it amassing quite a following of fans. Not too long ago at MWC this past year, Sony announced the Xperia M2, a mid-range device with development that is just now starting to flourish. And now, you can enjoy some of the M2 goodies on other devices.
XDA Senior Member xperiaz2 ported the M2’s System UI to other Sony devices running Android 4.3, and added fonts from its bigger brother, the Sony Xperia Z2. And given that the majority of Sony devices are now running 4.3 thanks to recent update pushes, quite a few Xperias can get in on the action—even devices with dual-SIM support.
In addition to the visual changes, this update also offers some functional toggles. These toggles can potentially save you time searching for features like NFC or Stamina mode. You can enjoy the newest Xperia UI on your device in just few simple steps, but don’t forget to backup your current ROM in case anything goes wrong.
If you are an Xperia device owner running 4.3 and want to check out the latest Sony UI seen on the M2, head over to the original thread and give this a try.
