Xperia S UI Ported to Non-Xperia Devices

A few days ago PoorCollegeGuy posted an article explaining a method of taking the UI from Sony’s new Xperia S and using it on an Xperia Play. Now that’s all fine and dandy for Xperia play users, but what about everyone else? For the rest of you looking to try Sony’s sleek UI on non-Xperia device, XDA member ra3al has been hard at work with you in mind.

He has managed to port the entire UI from the Xperia S and optimise it for non-Xperia devices with a variety of different screen resolutions. The package will install the launcher, clock widgets, toggle tools, photo widget, and weather widget. There are even links to the original static and live wallpapers for the full Sony Mobile Xperience (see what I did there?). While this seems to work perfectly on the majority of devices, some people are reporting that they aren’t able to install, so success is unfortunately not guaranteed. That said, this is definitely worth a try if you’re interested in rocking the UI.

This mod is currently only compatible with Android 2.3 based ROMs, but an ICS version is on the way. It’s also worth mentioning that it should only be installed on NON-Xperia devices. So if you feel like your phone could use a bit of a makeover, check out the modification thread.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
