Xperia Arc Launcher Extracted and Working for Most Android Devices!

We always go crazy over new devices for several reasons. Whether it is specs, capabilities, or external looks, we always wonder what the device actually feels like when using it. The UI or launchers have become a distinctive fingerprint for most Android devices as each manufacturer seems to have their own flavor (HTC has Sense, Samsung has Touchwiz, and Motorola has Blur). Sony was not going to be left out of this picture, so with the introduction of the new Xperia Arc, they decided to roll out a new launcher as well. If you have seen it and would love to have it in your device, then you may want to swing by XDA member phoezies‘ thread. He has successfully extracted the launcher and has confirmed that it works for most Android devices with loaded with Eclair and later. XDA member backhead92 has also contributed to this project by making a modded, transparent version of this UI.

A rather large list of devices is supported by this launcher (various makes and resolutions). However, if you have any feedback regarding devices with bugs, please leave some feedback.

This is a official Launcher from Xperia Arc….. extracted from Sony Arc….
Launcher Working on Eclair , Froyo and Gingerbread Tested..
Confirmed Working On Stock Sony X10 Rom and Also on Every android Handset with Android 2.1, 2.2, 2.3. Nexus 1 , Nexus S , galaxy series, Optimus Series, Droid Series etc.

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop.

But it'll be a long time...
