Turn Your Xperia Play Into an Xperia S

Running one Android phone’s skinned UI on a different Android phone is always an interesting experience. Experiencing what owners of a different device feel in comparison to what you’re already using can not only be useful for a possible future jump to a different device, but it’s always cool to show your friends the real versatility of Android.

For users carrying the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, you can now run most of the UI and applications from the Sony Xperia S, should you so choose. XDA Forum Member jjkkyu has ported many of the components of the Xperia S interface to the Xperia Play for users to check out.

The mod includes the following Xperia S components:

1.Xperia S style UI.
2.Xperia S home lancher(modded to seven pages).
3.Xperia S system app icons.
4.Xperia S style phonebook, credit to Soheil_rf.
5.Xperia S music player(Equilizier, SenseMe, Stereo, xLOUD all working).
6.Xperia S Timescape and new Timescape widgets.
7.Xperia S weather, switch tool, clock, music, smartcontacts widgets.
8.Xperia S brower, email, calender, clock, calculator, power saver.
9.Xperia S system default wallpapers.
10.Xperia S system default livewallpapers(CosmicFlow & LiveEarth).
11.Xperia S boot animation(Xperia logo).
12.Xperia S closing charge animation.
13.Xperia S Chinese keyboard.
14.Xperia S lockscreen slidebar and time display adjustment.
15.Xperia S system default themes.
16.Xperia S style browser.

The mod also features working Timescape and the ability to restore the home screens to 5 screens. The mod itself comes in the form of a recovery-flashable update.zip, so installation is a breeze.
