Xperia S wake upHaving to wake the Sony Xperia S via the power button at the top of the handset can be a tad frustrating given its size. This is especially relevant when trying to use the phone one-handed. However, a useful mod has appeared that will allow you to wake the screen from the much more easier to reach volume keys.

The process itself looks relatively straight forward although you’ll need to make sure you have root access on your Xperia S. You will have to download one of two files (the first enables to wake the screen via the up volume button, whilst the second allows you to wake the screen via both the up/down volume buttons). The full instructions are here and it is reported working on the .73 firmware.

    I can do it without root access with go locker.

    For me the xperia s is still very much a device in waiting.
    I’m not going to begin any alterations until ICS arrives and settles. I’m just not very interested in this gingerbread firmware. I’ve had it now for over a year and it’s become tiresome.

    It works quite well, and you don’t have to use the Go Launcher although you have to have it installed…
