Installing Touch Flo 3D on Xperia
When Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 hit the market, one of the XDA Members released his work on porting the TouchFlo 3D user interface to Xperia X1. Though what was then a lengthy process, now installation of TouchFlo 3D onto Xperia has become as easy as executing a single .CAB file.
In case you are wondering what TouchFlo 3D is, in which case i am wondering where you have been the last couple of months… HTC TouchFlo 3D was introduced with Touch Diamond that gives you touch control over the phone. Use finger gestures to navigate programs, browse the web and flick through the contacts, photos and albums. The most widely-used functions such as e-mail, music and the Internet are only a flick away. Functionality apart, TouchFlo 3D is one of the most beautiful interfaces to hit Windows Mobile since long. You just have to love the weather app!
Anyways… If you want to install TouchFlo 3D onto Xperia then follow the simple steps as detailed below. All credit goes to itje at XDA Forums.
Want it as a Panel instead of the default Today item? Then follow the procedure as detailed here.
That is it! It is really that simple. If you want additional stuff from HTC Touch HD on your Xperia including the HTC Volume Control, Comm Manager, Dialer, and Keyboard then visit the XDA Forum thread here for links and downloads.
TF3D Landscape Workaround
Update: This fix works for the TF3D Panel too. However, it is a tad bit slower for the Panel.
TF3D works wonderfully on Xperia. That is until you switch to landscape mode. Thanks to chalid at XDA Forums, a fix is now available for Touch Flo 3D in landscape mode. And the procedure is simple.
Though not extremely smooth, but works reasonably well. A step in the right direction.
