Xperia Arc, Neo and Ray Receive 15-Button Status Bar

Some of the most underrated modifications that developers make  are the status bar widget modifications. Being able to pull the status bar down and change everything from 2G and 3G (on some phones, even 4G), turning Bluetooth and WiFi on and off and even having a flashlight toggle.

XDA Senior Member hansip87 released a modification for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray that gives Ice Cream Sandwich users a 15-button status bar. The developer is also adapting the mod for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. The modification is pretty simple and actually includes more than one mod. Not only is there a 15 button status bar widget included, but it also includes a 6-in-1 mod, specifically for ICS. If it is anything like the 10 in 1 Gingerbread Mod for the Xperia Ray, users can expect to see features like 2G/3G toggling, Bluetooth and WiFi toggles and even a flashlight toggle.

The mod, while still available for use, still has a few things to work out before the final version is released. According to the developer:

In ICS the mod is reduced to 6, since some mod is unapplicable, already inside ICS, or already merged to other mod (e.g. 15 button in status bar widget). So the only thing left is:
1. 30 step Volume
2. Reboot Menu

So for anyone who’s wanting some modified goodness for their Ray, they can check out screenshots and download links in the original thread. For Arc and Neo users, you’re still on the wait list, but launch threads have been set up for the Neo and the Arc so keep your eyes peeled there for releases. As always, don’t forget to make those backups before flashing anything.
