Xperia Z Ultra has been creating news since it’s launch and the rumored Xperia Honami i1 has just followed it. A bit amusing thing is that, Xperia Z Ultra has been launched but rather than leak of it, we are seeing leaks from Xperia Honami 😛 Well some days back we posted Xperia Z Ultra ZU and Xperia Honami Android 4.2.2 Official Themes and wallpapers and now we present you the official Xperia Home Launcher and new widgets from Xperia Honami i1 to be installed on Xperia S, SL, Acro S and Ion.

Installing Xperia Honami Home Launcher version 6.0.A.0.12 and Widgets

Xperia Honami is expected to come with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean but as we all know that Xperia Z and Xperia ZL have officially been updated to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean 10.3.A.0.423 firmware but as we compared we saw older version of Xperia Home Launcher 5.3.A.0.3 in Xperia Z which points that very soon Xperia Z and ZL will be getting another android 4.2.2 update to match the UI of Xperia Honami and Xperia Z Ultra.

    All sony devices have poor sound quality. No midrange and subwoofers. Look, if u play mp3 files on samsung devices it even vibrates and very excellent sound quality. If u ask me about sony devices? No comment.

    • Anurag Kumar August 1, 2013 at 9:54 am - Reply

      I guess you have got bootloop ( may be something got wrong with system / partition )..You need to flash back the old firmware again…or restore the backup…

      Try rebooting recovery and wiping cache and dalvik.

    It works ok, but after every reboot says : xperia home launcher stopped. After a couple of this messages it stops and runs ok, but again after a reboot, xperia home launcher stopped, and after a few OK’s it runs great. Why Xperia Home Launcher message appear after every reboot? The installation was done by the book, so it’s not that. Why?

    • Anurag Kumar September 17, 2013 at 12:47 am - Reply

      are you able to restart phone. ? try rebooting in recovery and install backup.

      If not able to then try connecting phone in flash mode in between bootloops and try reflashing / or re updating via SUS.
