Tweaks from Other Devices that Work on Xperia Neo

One of the coolest things about hacking Android is cross compatibility between phones. With frameworks and system files being used over and over again by OEMs, it’s becoming more and more likely your device is compatible with other devices from the same company. The Sony Ericsson Xperia line up shares a particularly diverse range of mods that they share among one another, as making it work on each phone requires little to no effort on the parts of developers. Make a mod and changing maybe a couple lines of code can make it compatible with pretty much every other Xperia phone.

With this in mind, XDA Senior Member sdk16420 has compiled a list of mods that work on the Xperia Neo that are actually from other phones in the Xperia line up that, with no modification required at all, work on the Xperia Neo. The list is pretty extensive and includes things like themes, mods, tweaks and even some ROMs that will work on the Xperia Neo. Such mods include 30-step volume bar and various status bar mods and even a couple of ROM tweaks such as V6 Supercharger script and the ever popular MIUI Music Player are listed along with about a couple dozen others.

To see the full list, check out sdk16420’s thread. Most of them are flashable via recovery so they’re easy to use. As always, be sure to make a backup before using as they are for other devices and can potentially cause problems.

Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks. If you could help out an OEM and take it back to its golden days, which one would it be?

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
