Xperia Home X enhances the stock Sony launcher using Xposed on Android Pie

Sony devices come with the company’s own custom launcher and software. Over the years, the UX has come closer to Google’s Android, but there are still distinct elements that long-time users have grown fond of. One of these is the Sony launcher that is found on Sony devices. If you like Sony’s launcher for the most part, but are just looking for some extra customizations, check out XDA Recognized Developer serajr‘s Xperia Home X Xposed module.

Xperia Home X Xposed module brings over customizations such as an override for the theme, icon pack, and icon sizes. It also lets you modify grid rows and columns on the homescreen, set gestures for double tap and swipe down, add padding to widgets, display longer names, and much more.

The complete list of features for the module is as below:

You need to have Xposed installed on your Sony device that is running Android Pie. Since Xposed is not officially available for Android Pie, you would consequently need to have EdXposed and Riru Core Magisk modules installed, which in turn need Magisk installed. The developer has also attached the Xperia Home Launcher 3 and Wallpaper Picker APK to the main post, and these also need to be sideloaded conventionally before the module is installed and activated.
