Re: How to remove 4 corner shortcut icons

you can not flash another Xperia's firmware, you could try but it might brick your phone. try a different home launcher

Re: How to remove 4 corner shortcut icons

That's on warez territory, you can't access the play store?

Warez refers primarily to copyrighted works distributed without fees or royalties, and may be traded, in general violation of copyright law. The term generally refers to unauthorized releases by organized groups, as opposed tofile sharing between friends or large groups of people with similar interest using a darknet. It usually does not refer to commercial software counterfeiting. This term was initially coined by members of the various computer underground circles, but has since become commonplace amongInternet users and the mass media.

Re: How to remove 4 corner shortcut icons

the battery it's slightly less with ICS but the ICS performance it's not that great on the 2011 Xperias.
