For those of you who got the package installing correctly, but nothing shows up, do you guys have previously installed (older) version of the XPERIA Home Launcher or any XPERIA widgets?
You need to uninstall all of these (all apps sharing the name com.sonyericsson.home) prior to installing, I should add this step to the first post.

I'm trying to come up with a version that will work on ICS, but I'm not sure if a Froyo version is possible...

HVGA (MDPI) version is coming soon too ;)

    Will there be a possibility to resize widgets? This is the only thing that stop me from using this as default launcher (always using 5x7 grid)

    Sent from my U8815 using xda premium

    That option will come later..

    0.9.1 is now available. Changes:
    - Added possibility to Backup and Restore launcher settings (widgets cannot be restored due to Android limitation)
    - Added support for Launcher Pro (Plus) and ADW Launcher icon packs
    - Added built-in icon pack. Included icons from Xperia S: Browser, Calculator, Calendar, Camera, Clock, Phone, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, Settings
    - Enabled infinite scrolling on the desktop and the app drawer (currently cannot be disabled)
    - Slightly increased desktop usable space for widgets / shortcuts / folders (+10.0 dp)
    - Automatically close an open folder, when a shortcut in it is clicked


    Icon pack selection: Preferences -> Appearance -> Icon Pack

    Can you port those widgets for this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1345601 ? For 360 Launcher
    As mentioned numerous times, it's not possible.

    I can confirm I am actively working on porting the ICS/JB variant of the Xperia launcher and adding extra features. The port is based on the latest available version (present in the latest firmware of Xperia T).

    I can confirm I implemented the ability to resize all widgets (the non-modified (Sony) versions only support resizing widgets that are declared as resizable). I am also adding some small additional features currently unavailable in the GB version such as: enable/disable showing titles of shorcuts and folders on the desktop, etc.

    I expect to finish it in about a week or so from now.

    Cheers :)

    Hi guys, two days ago I started working on porting the ICS version of the Xperia launcher (from Xperia T) and adding settings, of course.
    It will be easily installable on both Xperia and non-Xperia devices.
    On devices with ICS/JB the new version seems to be smoother than the old GB version.

    Next release is almost ready. What will be in it:
    -Backup and Restore launcher settings
    -LauncherPro and ADW icon packs support
    -Build-in pack with Xperia S icons
    -Infinite scrolling on the desktop and the app drawer
    -A little more space (10.0 dp) for widgets/schortcuts/folders on the desktop
