    Thanks, I'll do that too.

    Unfortunately I keep getting an error when I try to download the ROM. I get the message "Oops! Google Chrome could not find goo-inside.me."

    I don't think that I'd be blocked just because I'm out of the US. I'm going to try from a different wifi location and see if that works any better.

    I guess I should make sure to dust off the corner of my brain that holds the good vocabulary words. :D

    I hope this doesn't cause itching and burning when posting the link from the app, but....

    Here's my favorite YouTube video to show off the Gnex screen. Anyone else have a fave?

    some update for you guys.

    I am switching back from the extended battery to the stock one. although the extended doesn't add much bulk, but the bulk is enough that the cover I am using doesn't fit too well also the extended makes the phone a bit heavy. I am using the Shell/Holster Combo https://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c...ryDetails&archetypeId=12928&accessoryId=49886

    which is really terrific, because it has a kickstand and allows the phone to stand in landscape or portrait mode.

    So I decided to get a second standard battery, and the best option is to get the battery charger with battery and y cable.
    https://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c...ryDetails&archetypeId=12922&accessoryId=49880

    Here's an experience for you:
    First I call 3 VZW stores near me looking for the charger/stand and they all say they don't have it in stock. Knowing these guys are either distracted, or simply unwilling, or unaware to search correctly for a product, I call 611 and have them search for availability near me. Two of the stores that I had call, had the charger in stock and the VZW phone rep, had the one at the nearest store keep one aside for me, which I picked up soon after.

    I love that case with kickstand. But I love my tpu case as well. And they are sending me a new one next week to replace the original which has the 'ghost volume rocker' issue as they put it.

    Welp, just got back from Verizon to spend the $50 living social deal that never got used when I bought my Nexus...He confirmed it never got used, so I got the spare battery and charger and extra screen protectors for $4! Pretty sweet deal. Now I have more battery power than I will every need (have the standard, an extended, now this with another standard).

    Kind of sucks though, I asked him for a docking station so I can throw it on the dock while at my desk and use my bluetooth keyboard with it, but he showed me the inventory list and he said the Galaxy Nexus dock wasn't released yet :(.

    We are tied as of my last word. And yes, my gutter mind plays into words with friends as well, I just played the word 'undress'

    using the SGN one forms an intimate relationship with the battery. boy does this phone love to suck up power when in use. it's not too bad when hibernating, but as soon as you start to use web, or other features, you can see the battery meter go down a percent per every few minutes. :)

    True, but I have a suspicion why you need extra batteries. :eek:

    Just flashed both and yes (other than the horrible bootanimation which I immediately changed) it looks pretty good.

    Since it's a nightly I take it that it's not deodexed so I can't flash the "autobrightness" patch?

    Everyone have big plans for New Year's Eve?

    Thanks to the international dateline I get two of them this year. It's already Dec 31st here in Japan and since I'll be flying to Hawaii tonight I'll get a second chance to party tomorrow.

    I'm looking forward to tomorrow because I'll be flying the plane tonight so I'll have to limit myself to just a few drinks.

    Before anyone calls the FAA, I'm just kidding about tonight!!!

    TBH, although I may be warmer, I'm sure you'll have a better time with friends and family than I will surrounded by strangers.

    Of course, if I could smuggle you on my plane I'm sure we could get into some serious trouble together and tear the island apart.
