Re: Sony Xperia S home launcher works on the Arc

The changes are good really good.

THANKS A LOT Uli for the link. And yes the amazing thing is that we can keep the orginal Music player to use the EQ. Xperia S Widget works fine that.

Here's from mine.

Re: Sony Xperia S home launcher works on the Arc

Hi Uli, sorry for the delayed rep. :smileyhappy:

No, I am using the Music Widget from Xperia S only. And the music player is from ARC S. That is why i can use the Equalizer.

But even without the EQ i found that Xperia S music player sound production and output is better and clear than the Original player from ARC S.

2 more important things.

The Xperia S weather widget  doesn't drain the batter like the "Genie Widget or Weather Widget" Available @ ARC S.

Also the Music player use less battery energy, at least 15-20% less than the original ARC S player.

Excellent!
