you get the lock symbol once the device is unlocked...and it actually shows a lock that is unlocked!!!

Why are there no zoom in and out icons on the browser?!? I kind of miss having them, it's a pain to always have to pinch to zoom. Any way to get them back?

BTW, first post typed on my GN!!

First full day of obsessing over the phone and I got to say I like it. Super OCD noticed that the bottom of the screen is slightly brighter that the rest but not enough to risk taking back for another only to find a more glaring problem. Otherwise battery life is mediocre (expected) and signal strength is not as good as the OG even with my home wifi.

Was going to unlock and wait to root but I could not resist the urge. Had a tense moment when my phone was stuck at the Google screen and had to pull battery thinking I would have to go through the root process again but it booted up and I have root!

Was thinking that the 4.0.3 update will lose root anyway so I probably should have waited.

For those that rooted. I downloaded the su.zip and extracted to desktop. When I opened that folder there is "meta-inf" "system" and another zip file for "superuser-3.0.70-efgh-signed". Which one do put in my tools folder?

I never used them. I just double tap on the text I want to read, and let it resize.

You push the zipped file to the GN, and install it from recovery.

The instructions at Droid life worked perfectly for me.

Good morning, Nexlings!

Thanks, BB &, jbdan, I will try gimp.

I charged the battery fully last night, used it for roughly 20 minutes, and it was down to 80%!

Put it to sleep in my sock drawer (one of our dogs turns into a chew-thief at night; seriously, she's taken my wallet out of my pants before), woke it up this morning, and it's at 60%!

I have no idea what's discharging it so much, but I will let it drain all the way before recharging.

Bought the extra battery last night, and it's fresh and ready to go, at least.

I'm on step 10 and 11. Choose a zip to apply. Su.zip isn't there. Or do I have to open one of the options to get to it?

Anyone. I'm on the ClockworkMod Recovery screen. Can I just unplug phone and start my phone back up and find out what I'm doing wrong before I try again. Or. Do I have to pick one of the otions...reboot,install zip,wipe data,wipe cache,backup,mounts,advanced?

Zip file is NOT installed.

Can anyone help?

I think when I download the superuser I shouldn't unzip it. Just put the whole thing in my tools folder? The first time I unzipped it then but the file in the tools folder. I'll have to try again later. I wiped date/factory reset and then rebooted.

I miss all the old ringtones on my Droid! Especially the one I used!

All these stock ringtones are pretty limited and lame IMHO

Does anyone know of a place where I can go to get those (or at least MY) specific ringtone(s) so I can load it onto my Nexus?

EDIT: NVM, I DID IT!

I went into the system folder of my rooted Droid, copied my ringtone to the SD card, then copied the ringtone to the PC via USB. THEN I connected Nexus to the PC and dropped it in the "Ringtones" folder. DONE!

I emailed my old ringtones to myself, worked great! I did have to convert a wav file to an mp3 to get it to work correctly.

I copied over the "Drooooooooooooooooid!" notification tone for Gmail, my TOS Star Trek communicator notification tone for Google Voice and my British Trimphone ringtone.

While the external speaker on the Gnex is a bit....lacking... these are all reasonably audible. I don't think I'll ever find a phone with an external speaker as good as the OG Droid.

My wife's car does not have Bluetooth but she'd like to still listen to music from her phone while in the car. She does not have an audio in unfortunately. Any recommendations for a good kit that would let her do that? Any of these with a cigarette lighter charger built in as well?

I got my wife a Motorola MOTOROKR T505.

It's a BT speaker phone and FM radio transmitter and plugs into the cigarette lighter to charge.

I guess I have the charmed Nexus: I have no problem with its speaker volume. Granted, I use my BT headset like 99.9% of the time... but the speaker works just fine when I need it, with plenty of oomph. But you're right: NOTHING will ever beat Droid in many respects.

Great post! I was wondering how to do that myself.

I did see I could buy it from Verizon but hey, I like free.

Haha I was was wondering if that lock symbol had been there the whole time.

I did unlock on day 1 so I guess I never noticed the lack of the symbol.

FYI if anyone is considering the standard battery+ charger bundle:

The charger also has a slot in it for a horizontal stand. You can charge at the same time with the Y cable provided.

So it serves as a great horizontal dock as well!

Can't go wrong for $30!

So about the sound volume.............not a big fan.

I am pretty sure I will miss both incoming calls and texts in noisey environments.

Did I miss anything about a fix for this?

My son and I compared phones for sound (RAZR) and his totally blew my ears off with it turned up to full volume.

I will give it a week or so to see how I feel. I really want to love it but this is a kinda big deal to me.

I have an older car (2003) that has a tape cassette adapter. If you have one of those, they also provide pretty good audio IMO.

I hope I get a similar situation. I drained my battery down to like 2% and popped it onto the charger. Just slipped in a fresh battery and I will do the same to this one.

Then we'll see what's what!

Well stop making it so damn difficult.

I've used the fm transmitters in the past, but I always found the audio to be poor especially in non-rural areas where there are a lot of "real" radio stations fighting for the same frequency. The best option be may be an inexpensive after market deck. You could try out the fm transmitters, but they don't work very well IMO.

Yeah, I've tried those in the past. A friend in Durango, CO swore by it. He lives out in the sticks, though. It sucked in downtown Chicago.

I was using Launcher Pro Plus on my OG Droid with its awesome calendar widget.

Unless I'm being an idiot and can't figure it out, the stock calendar widget with ICS is rather lame. I'd like to see far more than just the current day.

I'm now using Pure Calendar Widget on my Gnex, but it's fairly ugly and lacks the functionality of the Launcher Pro one.

So... does anyone have any suggestions for a functional and attractive calendar widget?

I am trying to set up SDK so I can unlock but I am stuck. The directions say to replace a driver with the Cyanogen one inside the android-sdk-windows\extras\google\usb_driver\ folder replacing the "stock" android_winusb.inf. I looked everywhere for this folder and it is nowhere to be found. Great start for me trying to unlock...

I don't have the "extras" folder they are talking about...The instructions I am using are here...

Yeah these instructions are a bit outdated it seems. After it opens it tells you what to install but the revisions that are in the instructions are older revisions and everything is just a little off making it that more frustrating.

So I was unable to get a video chat initiated with gtalk cos my wife's stratosphere is running 2.3.4 and not 2.3.5! I have tried to root her phone but support is limited on here device and my computer needs to be backed up and wiped with a fresh install of windows/Ubuntu. We can use Tango but I want use Google based products.

On a NEXUS Note...I am loving this phone. I can live with the speaker volume though I would prefer it louder. I am seeing poor battery life like most here but it has only been two days so I wanna give it some more time. Might get the extended battery anyway. Seems the screen takes up the majority of battery life. I am running today on auto brightness with a sleep time of one minute. I will report back on this.

As I am typing (right now) in landscape I am noticing significant lag. Weird that it just started happening.

Lastly I am also noticing lag when switching from portrait to landscape.

Still love this phone. Thinking 4.0.3 will fix some of this and since that will be the new base for ICS I will root and unlock then.

Thanks Nexicans!

Just left Radio Shack. Needed a power jack splitter, but that's not what this is about. The sales guy was showing a RAZR to a customer spewing out the most amazing line of anal leakage.

A quick rundown of the "features":
The back costs more than the rest of the phone.
The battery is replaceable (he saw it on the internet)
The back is bullet proof
The glass is bullet proof
It's basically indestructible unless you snap it in half...
"...but I like my Thunderbolt better"
And They make you pay more for 4G than 3G

I kid you not. I nearly strangled myself trying to keep quiet and not bust out laughing.

This is what I followed.

How to Unlock the Galaxy Nexus Bootloader (Verizon)

I think the only revision difference I saw was revision 16 instead of 15.

Yeah for setting up SDK it brings me to the same site with the wrong folder locations. Nowhere in the android-sdk folder is there an "extras" or even a "android_winusb" that the instructions says.

When I showed my friend my Han Solo (Han gave me permission to name my Nexus after him) he said, "It's no RAZR!" I replied with, "You're right about that!"

Skip that step, don't worry about the Cyanogen mod phone drivers

This is the driver you'll use
[ADB/FB Driver] Naked Samsung Driver 1.7 - xda-developers

Edit: by "that step" I mean step 11

I got the "extras" folder to show up, do I still need to put in and replace an android_winusb file that the instructions say? or just install the naked driver? Because right now I am just trying to get devices to show up in the command prompt.

EDIT: I see the naked driver isn't an installation...Where do I put this thing? haha

If you GNex has already been installed. Go to device manager (Control Panel -> Device Manager), and uninstall the one that says something like "Samsung ADB"

Then replug in your device and when it asks to install, (Select Manually find folder) point it to the folder where you unzipped the above driver download. It shouldn't matter where you extract it. I did it under the android sdk folder in a new folder call GNex Drivers

ok, so the speaker level wass frustrating me a little bit and went ahead and got volume+, for $1 i figured it was worth a shot. i know there was some debate over whether it really worked or not, but for me, it works like a charm! best "mod" yet haha, i just put it on +4 to keep it safe for now, but definitely a solution for those who arent happy with the speaker volume
