A while back, we reported that the Meizu MX’s customized version of Android, Flyme OS, was ported to the AT&T Galaxy S II. Apparently, it generated some interest, as a similar port was released for the Xperia Neo V and L a couple of weeks later. Now, the Flyme goodness is spreading again. This time to the Sony Xperia Play.
XDA Senior Member emwno has released a port of the Meizu skin for the Xperia Play. It’s laid over Android 4.0.4, and for an early port, it isn’t half bad. There are only a few things that seem to be wrong or buggy, including:
Network tab in settings
Keyboard LED (Pro)
Auto LED off
Everything else seems to be working just fine—including 720p video recording and the essentials like data, signal, and SD card. So in terms of usability, it may not be daily driver material, but it’s close. So far, users haven’t had any big complaints aside from the things already wrong. The biggest drawback is that this is for the GSM version only. So those carrying the CDMA version will have to wait a little longer.
