Re: Sony Xperia S home launcher works on the Arc

There has been some discussion on XDA about Sony making lots of UI changes between the current beta and the final release but I seriously doubt they would take the risk.  So you'll get the same launcher that the beta has - which is a cross between the old one and the Xperia S one.

However, I did install the stock ICS launcher (Launcher2) and it works perfectly! (I'm on the ICS beta BTW).  Sadly this alternative launcher only works when installed as a system app which would require root access - but I'm sure there are some similar packages on Google Play.
