Default Volume control

I'm looking for a volume control app or widget for my Samsung Nexus that lets me control ringer volume and notification volume separately. Now I use Volume Control +, and it has separate dials for them, but when I take notification down to silent, ringer goes with it. (It appears to work, but if I switch away and then back, both are silent.) At night, I like to leave ringer sound on just in case of emergency, but I don't want to be awakened by every email or FB post. Any ideas?

Hey Papergirl, welcome to AF! Just a heads up, I moved your thread to the Galaxy Nexus forum. Lots of knowledgeable people amongst us GNexers, I have no doubt you will get an answer ASAP! I am a little ashamed, as I have a GNex myself, but don't have an answer for you off the top of my head, I have never tried to do this myself...

Default Thanks, Antimony

I didn't know exactly where to post, since I don't think this is specifically a Nexus question, so thank you. I had a bit of trouble finding a way or place to post -- sometimes I wouldn't get the "thread tools" header --I must have been doing something wrong. So basically, I posted where I could!

They are bound together inseparably in Jelly Bean. The only way to separate them is by installing a custom ROM. You are not the first, nor will you be the last person looking to do so....

^^ +1.

Not one of Google's better decisions imo. That's taking the old vanilla concept a little too far. Really seems like a common sense feature to have on all phones.
