Default [App] Tweaked Xperia S Home Launcher (Dock and/or Corners) for LDPI - v5.1, 04/05/12

Here is my Xperia Home FIFTH version for x10 Mini/Pro QVGA (LDPI) devices. It was ripped from Xperia S version 2.2.A.0.14, see image:



This version is full compatible only with Gingerbread (API Level 10) and Ice Cream Sandwich (API Level 14), but works with some FC on Froyo (API Level 8). It does not work on Eclair (API Level 7).

I have made some tweaks like:

Installation instructions for v5.1:

Before you install it, you must install in your system two dependencies files, see imgs:

and

If you have some "com.sonyericsson.home" installed, you must uninstall it.

1 - Download the attached System_Pre_Reqs.rar and extract it´s contents on your computer
2 - With Root Explorer put the two files in their respective /system folders with proper permissions (see imgs above)
3 - Reboot your phone
4 - Download attached v5.1_???_Home.apk and put it on your sdcard
5 - Download attached v5.1_Home_Preferences.apk and put it on your sdcard
6 - Install both as normal apk

If you still are on Eclair 2.1, download the attached .zip with v3.2 compatibles apks inside and install as normal apk.


If you like, press thanks...

Thank you. It is nice but is it possible to place widget in the middle of the screen, not on the side of it. one more question please: is it possible to decrease the transparency of the corners ?!
