Thanks for the info, unfortunatly I've been down that road a few times, I really need that 'zoom mode' box, I dont want a phone screaming out my messages, etc. in public, and the 'huge font' on ics isnt big enough, searches have been done by myself, verizon and motorola for an app that duplicates the magnifying box with no luck. I wish I had some developing skills, I'd disassemble the latest working version of 'zoomservice.apk' and make it work with newer operating systems.
I wonder, does jellybean have it? couldnt find anything on it so I'm guessing the answer is no
