Inspired by this thread: SE Timescape UI for P500 + Other Goodies, I've came up with the conclusion that with the necessary permissions .xml and framework .jar, apps meant for SEMC devices can be used in any non SEMC devices, including our beloved GT-I9100G...

Behold>>>
Xperia™ Timescape™ and SE Launcher+Widgets Ported for GT-I9100G (Any ROMs)

What's included:
-Timescape™ app
-Xperia™ Events app
-Timescape™ widget
-Timer widget
-Digital clock widget
-World clock widget
-Status switch widget
-SEMC On/off widgets
-Photos and videos widget
-Favourites and call log widget


Troubleshooting:
Remember to REBOOT after doing any changes...thank you...

1. Launcher does not appear:
- Download this Launcher.apk and install as a normal apk.

2. Timescape™ app is not showing anything:
- Be patient. It takes some time for it to sync with your phone.

3. I cannot add my Facebook account to Timescape™:
- Sorry to say that this happens in certain ROMs...I don't know how to fix it yet...Any solutions are welcomed...

4. The Timescape™ app and widget are showing nothing:
a) It takes some time for it to load especially when you have a long list of call logs and messages...If there's a blank screen, try tapping the screen and hit the menu button...also try hitting the "Refresh" button (available after you hit the menu soft key)...if there's still nothing, using a root explorer and navigate to /system/build.prop...check if the line "ro.semc.timescape_keys=Sony_Ericsson_Xperia" is present or not...if not, add it in manually and reboot your phone...
-Explanation: to add lines to build.prop, I used an advanced linux scripting command: "awk"...if your busybox is an older version, the command does not work...so you'll have to do it manually...
b) If all the above are still not working (e.g. Your Timescape™ is still blank), download this TimescapeSpline.apk and push it into /system/app and set permissions to rw-r--r-- and reboot...
c) If it's still not working, flash this Timescape_fix.zip via cwm... Hope that this solves the problem...

*If anything is not working please describe in detail...Do not leave a post that says "It's not working" and just leave it there as if it is never going to be fixed...How the heck am I going to figure out what's wrong? Please read through my posts for possible fixes and if there's no solution, please describe more about your problem...I've tested it on the device and of course I decided to share it after I'm confirmed that it works...why would I post something that does not work to get flamed? so if it's not working for you, please describe...Many complain that we "lack of love" from devs, but when someone finally took the initiative to do something for the community, please help out as no one is perfect...hope that everyone co-operates for a better development of our device...thank you...


**ATTENTION: If you are on a stock ROM, please go to /system/xbin and check whether a file named "awk" is present or not...if not, please use the method for stock odexed ROMs...thank you...

After installing, to make sure that things are really working, please go to /system/build.prop and check whether
Code:
ro.semc.timescape_keys=Sony_Ericsson_Xperia
is present or not, if not, please add it in manually and reboot...



Instructions (Install):
1. Download Timescape.zip from here: Downloads
2. Reboot into recovery and perform a nandroid backup (optional).
3. Flash Timescape.zip and reboot.
4. You're done!

**FOR STOCK ODEXED ROMS:
1. Download Timescape_stock.zip from here: Downloads
2. Reboot into recovery and perform a nandroid backup (optional).
3. Flash Timescape_stock.zip and reboot.
4. Go to /system/build.prop and add this line:
Code:
ro.semc.timescape_keys=Sony_Ericsson_Xperia
5. Reboot again and you're done!


Instructions (Uninstall):
1. Download undo_Timescape.zip from here: Downloads
2. Reboot into recovery and flash undo_Timescape.zip
3. You're done!

or (if you performed a nandroid backup before)

1. Reboot into recovery.
2. Go to Backup & restore -> advanced restore -> restore system.
3. Wait for it to finish and you're done!


Screenshots:



















Extra:
For your information, the default SE Launcher in this mod is from Xperia™ S...There is another version from Xperia™ Arc...It's similar but has the shortcuts at the corners...However, I could not get the Photo and Video Widget and Timescape™ Widget to work with it...To those who wanna give it a go, just flash the zip below in recovery...

Download: Launcher_Xperia_Arc.zip












Special thanks to:
-fundoozzz for the inspiration.
-myth999 and achyut for the files to start with the porting.
-achyut for the rescaled SE Launcher.
-Rapid81 for the Xperia™ Arc Launcher
-AmpMutant for testing the version for stock odexed ROMs
