This is the add-ons for LT15/18i
-Carrier text is blue
-Home.apk that looks like the one from Xperia S/ion
-Changes to build.prop to look like its version 2.3.7

This is my first contribution to the ARC/S , so please understand that im a noob

Push all three to respective folders,remember to change permissions to the same as the others!!

Recommended is to push all to /system first then change permissions and than push it to respective folders via root explorer.

Home.apk and systemui.apk to system/app folder and build.prop to /system folder.

If u like it , All i need is a 'THANKS'

I had a crack at this a while back too, they look basically the same except my status bar has the new background style and the carrier isn't blue.

Only other difference is that my home dock background is taken from the original screenshots rather than recreated (it's a bit taller, fades more at the top, and it slightly tinted).

You can get it here for download.

If you wanna use anything from my mod then feel free. In the press shots it seems that the status bar is completely black like in my mod so if you wanted to use that and then do the carrier color mod then feel free :)

Certainly :) You can download it here.

Just replace the current version with this is the System/App folder. REMEMBER though, first copy it to System, set permissions to RW-R-R and then move to /App. Should work.

Take a backup of the original first though. If it goes wrong, it shouldnt cause any problems and we can try again :)

Can anyone share the pagemarker indicators? I'm making a theme for Nemus Launcher.

Thanks in advance.

If you download my version of the home dock in the second post, open the home.apk file with something like 7zip and all of the resources are in there to use as you wish.

If you rip anything, credit would be nice since I spent the best part of an afternoon getting all these resources ported over, but not essential. I don't mind that much :)

Wallpaper can be downloaded here and the search box app can be found here.

why dont the dock icons reflect like in the photos of the actual phones? Here its just plain but on images it had a reflection.

Because this is just our current Arc launcher skinned to resemble the XS launcher. The actual XS launcher is coded to reflect the icons. Unfortunately without some serious time and probably the source code, making our launcher do this is incredibly difficult.

When i was watching a demo of Xperia S, i saw a live wallpaper of this, anyone has it?

Once it's been released it may be possible to port it, but it's difficult to say at this stage given that the XS and the Arc are very different screen resolutions. It may be very easy but it may prove extremely difficult. Only time will tell :)

Thanks to jtc42 for the paginator icons!

Installation: place zip file in SDCARD\nemuslauncher\themes
Installatie: plaats zip archief zonder uit te pakken in SDKAART\NemusLauncher\Themes

Long press empty area of homescreen, and select theme.

Thanks for the instructions, my intentions are to use this theme for private use, but if it turns out nice and I share it, I'll give you credit.

Edit:

I think it's fit enough for release.

I'd love to try this but I notice that SystemUI.apk is included in the zip which I guess will blat my modded version that contains notification power widgets...

...or does your mod contain something similar? :)
