    Hello! I just got the Galaxy Nexus yesterday and I'm pretty excited about it.

    I was playing with it last night and I activated some kind of glitch...

    Under Settings->Developer Options there is a "Pointer Location" option. After I enabled this, I started getting a really odd rainbow flicker... The problem was resolved by restarting the phone, but I wonder if anyone else has experienced this.

    I'm also experiencing a periodic red flashing frame around the screen that hasn't gone away.

    I recorded the flickering screen...

    Looks like a warzone is going off inside your phone, man

    That's all I have to say.

    Stigy Some say...

    Try Settings > Developer Options > Show screen updates

    That option is "Flash areas of screen when they update"

    That should fix your issue.

    Yes I am digging way back in the vault on this one but I had to show thanks. My screen started flickering but only when laid on its back. Doing the above cleared it right up. ;)

    I did it to one of my buddies in a dark room once turning the brightness all the way up and gave him the phone. He freaked out.
