Enjoy it.

BTW I love Fedex. I missed them yesterday and they left a door tag. I was able to go to the hub near my apartment (5 miles away), bring the door tag and my ID and got my package. Barely waited on any line and didn't have to call to let them know I was coming to get it.

Beats UPS on that front.

My girlfriend really missed her grandparents and we were discussing it and I told her we were going. Booked the tickets in September and told everyone to keep it a secret. Half of her family doesn't even know because they all have big mouths. We keep complaining about the weather in NJ this weekend to not tip them off at all.

Anyone know of different sizes of the rubber ear piece for the headphones that the galaxy nexus came with? I like them but they pop out of my ear consistently.

Glad to hear this. I've been a HUGE fan of DVD Cat for a while now. I got it to convert movies for my DX...then kept using it for my Thive, and of course now the Nex. ANYONE converting movies should at least download the trial of DVD Cat and give it a shot. The developer (Mitch) is a great guy, and probably gives the best customer service of any developer I know, for sure. He helped me through some issues early on. Amazing to get multiple emails with excellent help, at 1 and 2 am, shortly after I've sent them! He also really knows his stuff, when it comes to graphics, best settings for what you're wanting, etc etc.

Here is his site:

Home of the best DVD & Video conversion tool on the planet | Tools4Movies

Ok, commmercial's over...back to kinda working for me! (I am not affiliated with DVD Cat, just a very satisfied customer.)

Han, I searched your posts and found the link for the 1080 Netflix app. It doesn't seem to work for me though, it just FCs immediately. I remember you saying the same thing, how did you get it to work? Thanks.

Well I need to head up to Verizon in a bit to complete the process to make the phone mine. I ended up getting a second line for the nexus with 4gig of data. The new line means a new number and a data cap. So I need to see if Verizon will swap out my new number with my old so I can use my new phone with unlimited 4g goodness and my current Droid x number. Also going to look into a family plan and turn my Droid x into a family cell phone.

While I am at Verizon I think I'm going look into a case for "slick" because that's what the nexus is and perhaps an extended battery

Sorry if I offended any dentists out there!
Not a dentist.. but I can shed some light on the issue. There is a vein/artery that runs through your jaw that also circulates blood through your brain. Bad teeth can lead to infections which, if not caught in time or if they get in that vein/artery are bad juju. Basically it goes straight to the brain and game over.. So some dentists go a bit overboard about keeping the mouth clean without ever really explaining part of the problem. Most people just think of the loss of teeth or having bad teeth, they don't know it could kill them in a worst-case scenario

(1) 1080p Netflix

Here's a link to my thread. This download works:

http://rootzwiki.com/topic/12068-hd-netflix-app-1080p/

(2) Ringtones

To those who asked about ringtones on ICS:
1: create a folder names Audio on the sdard.
2: create 3 sub folders named ringtones, notifications, and alarms (all lower case)
3: dump files you want where and they will appear in the options.. sometimes you need to reboot first.

(3) Screen Troubles

The blotches and marks in the screen in low lighting are a effect of AMOLED screens in general. There's really no fix and they usually are not too bad unless yours are in bad spots. (I have a dot near my back soft key and a half ring shape near the P key).

Easiest way to test:

Download screen adjuster from the market and lower system brightness and use this to test:
http://www.webdesign.org/img_articles/8088/blank%20document.gif
Then lower the app brightness to minimum

Go into a very dark area and test that image. Zoom in and slowly move around.

Best way To test do this :-) (not recommended lol)

1: take a copy of bootanimation.zip and paste it to your SD.
2: take the original zip file and unzip it and delete the files out of it. Rezip and put it back.

When you boot you will get a black 'semi back lit screen' that will show all imperfections. You should hide under a sheet to test properly you need NO ambient light.

Learned this one the hard way. Happened to my mom. She is alive and well, thank God, but has had to adjust a lot due to issues from the infection that affected her everyday life.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I know you're being serious and trying to impart a warning, but I just couldn't help but laugh when you said "bad juju."

Just to let you guys know there's a post on Reddit that disabling google's location service and location and Google search in the GPS settings helps to fix the Android OS CPU problem.

Potential Solution to Galaxy Nexus Battery Issue. (/hope) : Android

I'm trying it out now, only been testing for half an hour, but I think it's working.

Edit: Didn't seem to fix the problem.

PS; What is an iPhone, I see peeps mention it in there post once in awhile?

Vandy,
I had the same problem. I dialed 611 with order number in hand and they provided me with the tracking number. I ordered on 12/15, shipped on 12/16, on truck for delivery today.

Good luck!!!

I just turned it all off. Phone is charging now. I let it die completely and when it was plugged in and charging I turned it back on and the battery widget read 45......why?

Definitely a good temp work around if you don't NEED those location services running. Thx

I understand this and the same is true of any untreated infection really, but I wasn't really being serious anyhow. Would guess a root canal or extraction ends up the lesser of evils long before such things become a concern in most cases.

I told the dentist that if it was cheaper she could take all my teeth out and I'd get fake ones. She thought that was kinda funny.

Yeah, I switched them on because they're definitely "nice to have" features, but if it's draining my battery I can definitely live without 'em

Not sure. Maybe that's the default image it starts with? Totally a guess. Like my clock starts at 6:00 until it auto updates from the network.

When you do google searches, and you search for Pizza, it will show places close to your current location.

Anything location based. Web search, places search, weather if you're using "follow me" type features, maps and nav. etc....

Although you can still turn them on when needed so not a biggie really.

I figured I would give it it a try. I am at 39% so I will see how it is in the next hour or two.

Did you pull the battery as suggested in the reddit post?

Dang. Well I flashed romans aokp bld 7 this morning and am giving it a thorough workout. He has built some amazing customizations into it along with some unque power saving features. It's running very well atm. Much faster and smoother than 4.0.2 and I have not found any hiccups yet.

Cool, I'm still running stock and was hoping that this would fix the problem. I've seen some screenshots showing 36 hours on battery and still at 40%.

That's all I want is for this thing not to suck down 30% of my battery while I sleep.

Edit: Didn't seem to fix the problem.
Just looked at this again.

He is on WiFi with screen off for 9 hours. The same test for one hour took 3% for me so with location based anything off I would probably lose a little bit less, but this is the same test I posted before and definitely wasn't the cause.

I PMed my dev friend over at XDA and his repsonse was:
Quote:
Looked into that as well - that might be an additional hindrance, but I dont think the root cause.

ie - He has a ton of polling data on for location, thus hitting the data bug, thus causing issue.

Also - his tests are very innaccurate. Too many variables messing up the results. I have location on and seeing the same results he is. Pretty sure he's just issuing a command to cause the bug to fire - not root cause, if you know what I mean.

Yeah. There's probably a lot of money that could be made developing more comfortable and more quickly healing means of repairing teeth, if such things are even possible. Someday maybe!

You really do lose 30% while sleeping? Something is seriously wrong with your phone whether software or hardware idk.
