Xperia T Applications Ported to Xperia 2011 Lineup
Another Sony Xperia device was released recently. If you’re unfamiliar with the development culture of Xperia devices, that means that everything on the new Xperia device will be ported to every other Xperia device in short order. For now, though, the Sony Xperia Ray, Active, Mini, and Mini Pro have gotten a port of some Sony Xperia T goodies.
XDA Recognized Themer Pranav110089 has released a decently sized package of Xperia T goodies for the older Xperia devices. The initial release was reported as buggy, but Pranav110089 has been able to fix most of the bugs and the package is pretty much ready for daily use. The features includes:
* Xperia T Small Apps [Full Port for MDPI Devices]
* Xperia S lockscreen compatible
* Xperia GX and Jelly Bean like SystemUI [Without Any Bug]
* Removed Reboot Option [Because there is bug ] [Still you can reboot via Notification Toggle]
* 30 Step volume MOD
For those who don’t know, Small Apps are actually applications that appear on your screen as windows. This is similar to the multi window feature on the Galaxy Note 2, except it doesn’t take up two halves of the screen. Installation is easy, just flash the package in recovery.
