A new version of Xperia Home is now available in form of 7.0.A.1.7. Xperia Home 7.0.A.1.7 seems a bit more fast and responsive than previous version. This version is not available via OTA instead extracted out from latest Xperia 4.4.4 KitKat update ( Xperia Z2 Tablet ).

You need rooted Xperia handset running android 4.4 KitKat to install Xperia Home 7.0.A.1.7 version. It is not working on non rooted Xperia handsets. Either go for a manual installation or push in system/app folder ( set permissions as rw- r– r– and reboot ).

In the new Android 4.4.4 KitKat update for Xperia Z2, Sony introduced Xperia home launcher with somewhat big icons which looks kind of awkward.

    omg..i installed the new “home” and it’s a little more faster but i dont like the big icons…i hope they fix it quickly in the next update

      It’s a near-AOSP feature. Google has icons of similar sizes for its AOSP Launcher3 and Google Now Launcher. Think Sony’s trying to make its apps AOSP-like.
