Galaxy Nexus Gets an Xperia Arc S ROM Ported to It


Well this is an odd little project that someone cooked up. Bringing the Xperia Arc S UI to the very phone that is running the beautiful stock ICS, the Galaxy Nexus. Now we all know (and love) that developers try to satisfy all tastes and will port Sense, MotoBlur, and even TouchWiz to a device. But senior XDA member¬†koaaN¬†decided that he wanted to see the Xperia Arc’s UI running on the superphone. Pretty out there I must say, but mainly everything works.

So my GNex users out there, if you would like to take an adventure into Sony’s UI-land, click the link below. Do the same song and dance of wiping and flashing in recovery. Let us know how it runs.

Been an Android nerd since the G1 days. I believe I hacked and flashed that phone into dust. Currently sport a Nexus 5 sized bulge in my pocket, which I am absolutely loving. I also host and produce The ManDroid Show every week and love talking Android to whoever wants to talk about it. So let's talk!
