How to Get the Latest Walkman from the Xperia S, T, and V on any ICS/JB Device


Now this is something really really cool indeed.As we love having different things from different devices on our “non-compatible” phones, we cannot help but enjoy features such as the Sense lock screen, TouchWiz, Blur (riight), Timescape, and more. One feature that has not gotten a whole lot of press is the Walkman player present in the Xperia S, T, and V devices. This player is featured pack with visualizations, equalizers, smooth animations, transitions, and everything that one expects of a music player this day and age. Luckily, for those who would want to get one of the aforementioned devices but cannot really bring themselves to spending more money on newer devices, XDA Forum Member Rizal Lovins has you covered.

The dev has successfully extracted and ported the Sony Walkman Style and Gallery applications from the Xperia series. The app in its current state has a few quirks including how the widget does not work as well as the SenseMe feature. However, the newer ports from the Xperia T music player seem to have solved quite a few issues with background and album art not displaying properly. One last thing is that the modded app can be installed on most devices sporting ICS, so as long as they are rooted.

Please drop by the thread and test these apps out, and leave some feedback for the dev to work out the kinks so that this can become a fully working port.

 Hi Guys …

I share the Walkman Player from Xperia S running ICS & I replace some icon

This Walkman application extracted from My Xperia S and work fine on other device running ICS/JB/CM9/CM10/MIUI ICS/AOSP/AOKP

You can find more information in the original thread.

How to make your low end devices lag free and lightning fast.(V6 supercharger)


V6 supercharger for me is one of the greatest achievements of xda.Simply, because it provides the low end and legacy devices like galaxy mini great memory management which makes them run very very smoothly indeed with little or no lags at all.Xda member zeppelinrox is the one who has made this script and it works on all devices and almost all ROMs.As for me, i have experienced it and i have got to admit that it is really worth it and really makes your 280 RAM device run like anything.So, the question is what does it do that makes the device s smooth.V6 Super Charger makes your phone super snappy, fast with better multitasking management. It rearranges and fixes Out Of Memory (OOM) Groupings, Priorities and LowMemoryKiller values to make your low RAM device fast, by freeing memory when possible thereby increasing the overall performance of you device.This post will    provide you information related to everything related to V6 supercharger like the requirements, the installation process, the way to implement in ICS and jellybean and how to start it at boot.

REQUIREMENTS:

1. Fully Rooted with Superuser and BusyBox 1.19.4. If you install script manager
2. Please update BusyBox Free (Stericson) to v7.8.2 on PlayStore.
3. Proceed to BusyBox Installation. Install BusyBox 1.19.4 to SYSTEM/BIN directory.
4. Reboot device.
5. Launch script manager and goto the script. Tap on SU.
6. It will fail on 1st time, just Try Again until all text are Green
7. Reboot device.Boot will take a LONG time as it “optimizes all your apps”

Steps for installing V6 supercharger on your device.

This part applies to everyone. The V6 SuperCharger requires a couple files to be downloaded to the root of the SD card. You can find them here at the original XDA thread. Download all files and extract/move them to the root of the SD card.

Go to the Android Market and download Script Manager. Open the app and tap “Browse as root”. Grant SM superuser permisisons and hit “OK”. Now navigate to /sdcard or wherever you placed the file V6_SuperCharger_update8. Select that file and a box should appear.
super-charger-v6-script-manager-startup

The only option necessary to run the SuperCharger is root access. Tap the small root icon above “Su”. Hit run, grant SuperCharger root access in the pop-up, and hopefully everything works.

If all goes well you’ll be greated with a large text menu of 17 items. These items are options for customizing how your phone uses its RAM. The Aggressive options tend to cut down on multitasking (and thus speed up the phone). The Balanced options allow for more apps to run.Choose the options according to your needs and continue.

Steps for Installing V6 supercharger on Jelly bean and Ice cream sandwich.

1. Run the NEWEST V6 SuperCharger script as always.

Note: You may get Segmentation Fault errors running the V6 SuperCharger script on ICS due to a flakey su (superuser) binary.
To resolve the issue, you can:

  •  Go HERE for a fixed SU binary.
  •  Go HERE and get the Super charger kit.

2. Patch and install services.jar

A) Automatically – Use the latest Update 9 RC* and select ICS Service Centre’s automatic transmission. (seemless webapp integration and installation to automatically make your launcher die hard) Actually, when you run V6 Update 9 RC* for the first time,this option is by default, so you really don’t have to do anything.
B) Semi-automatically – Make your launcher die hard with the ICS OOM Priority Charger webapp (latest Update 9 RC* can install and apply permissions via ICS Service Centre’s manual mode)

3.SuperClean & ReStart! (ie. Wipe Dalvik Cache & Reboot)

Notes: For decent launcher detection use at least V6U9 RC6.9 or newer and check the bOOM Stick to see if the launcher the desired ADJ value!

  •  If it doesn’t boot (unlikely if you did the edits yourself), try wiping caches (not data)
  • If it still doesn’t boot, you can always just re-flash your current untouched rom but do have a backup nevertheless.
  •  If you get FCs, fixing permissions will solve that. (Use the “Fix Emissions” Option in the latest V6 SuperCharger Script! )

That’s It!!!

LOAD 99SUPERCHARGER.SH ON BOOT:

1. Launch Script Manager and press Back Key twice until you reach [/] Directory.
2. Open /Data and look for 99SuperCharger.sh, tap it to select and run using Script Manager.
3. Select [SU] and [Boot] and hit the RUN button. After finish, just close it.
4. Enjoy V6_SuperCharger – Super-Saiyan Mode.
5. Do not uninstall Script Manager. It is used by 99SuperCharger.sh every Boot-up.

That’s all folks!You have successfully installed the V6 supercharger script on your device and now it will run smoother and better than ever before.For any Questions feel free to comment and you will be replied instantaneously!Happy Supercharging!!!
