Hi guys,

Recently Sony updated its "Walkman" app to "Music".

Most love the new additions to material design but changing the app from "Walkman" to "Music" was a disappointment. [Especially the Icons and notification ]

I believe that Walkman is "brand" that sets Xperia apart from other music players.

I have modified the app to give the same WALKMAN feel and looks while keeping the new functionality.

Requirements:
SuperuserMOD [Works for both KK and LP] NEEDED

Kitkat users can use Xposed installer and Serajr [KK] xopsed module to get Superuser MOD.

links for how to install xposed on LP rom-http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...3#post60454533

links for LP Serajr mod on LP-http://forum.xda-developers.com/cros...-0-27-t3094251


Install steps:
-Download and install as normal apk.

I have tried this with Lollipop and it works fine.. kitkat users need to be de-odexed and can try the same..

Hope you liked this mod.

Apk and screenshot added below.

If you liked this mod pls hit thanks
Update:
The new Icon is desiged to look like the Classic Walkman icon in old Walkman phones, whilst maintaining same icon theme that Sony uses.

On request , also another Mod with the Stock Walkman icon is created. You can download as per you choice.

Please let me know if you guys dont like the New icon or any inputs are welcome.


Change LOG :

v1 :
-Based on Music 9.0.0.A.2.0beta.
-Updated Launcher Icon to Stock Walkman App
-Updated Notification Icon to Stock Walkman notification.

v5:
- Updated to latest 9.0.1.A.3.1 version
-Android Wear text and Icon changed to Walkman icons
- Created two Apks on Request [one with the new Walkman icon and One with the Sony Walkman Lollipop icon]

Update:
For those who are OK with the new "Music" name and just want the annoying vertical "RED" beta version on the home screen of the music player, a stock apk with that mod is created. However you will need the specified requirements.

I basically loved the material concept thats enhanced in the new music player but I PERSONALLY did not like the WALKMAN name being replaced with MUSIC. NOR the icons.

I believe that Walkman is "brand" that sets Xperia apart from other music players.

So for those who do not like the new music icon..and like the old stock Walkman icons in notification and app.. You can use this

This is the

Install steps:
Back up SemcMusic.apk at /system/priv-app/SemcMusic/ [for lollipop]
Copy Apk to /system/priv-app/SemcMusic/
change permissions to rw-r--r--
Reboot


I have tried this with Lollipop and it works fine.. kitkat users need to be de-odexed and can try the same..

hope you liked this mod.
