    I have been using ToMarket for a long time and I have not found anything that can beat it.

    So I'm at Best Buy, looking for a case.

    They only have one, and I think it's for an imaginary phone.

    Not pathetic at all. I would have been frantic at sea looking for oars to help get us to shore faster.

    so yeah I took my OTG cable and plugged it into my Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse and it gets 100% support the second its plugged in. Even the volume buttons and play pause button work. Play opens music. Its sick and I'm really happy

    FYI I started having some trouble with ADWLauncher EX and have gone back to ICS launcher (stock) until ADW EX is fixed up a bit to work with ICS. I had problems with the wallpaper disappearing and widgets not showing their contents correctly.

    I use Mighty Grocery, only because it was Amazon's free app of the day a while back. It works fine for me, but I can't really compare it to any others.

    Well I'm at Verizon looking at the incipio double cover.

    They won't let me try it before buying, the morons.

    Does anyone have this? Does it make it much thicker?

    I did it last night on my MacBook. It took me two tries to correctly installing the SDK to unlock the bootloader, but after that it went fairly smoothly.

    There's a nice easy to follow guide by AlexKP at

    http://androidforums.com/galaxy-nexus-all-things-root/464427-how-unlock-bootloader-using-mac.html

    I'm kind of dumb, but once I learned the terminal command of using "cd" to navigate to the correct folder it worked fine. Check out his thread and let me know if you have any problems and I'll try to help. In review, it seems its easier to root on a Mac than a PC because you don't need to download drivers.

    On an off topic note (wait, that doesn't apply here does it?) hello from Lagos, Nigeria. There was a debate on our previous forum about the Nexus in Africa, but I'm betting mine is the first Verizon Nexus on the continent!

    Wow... I'm amazed at how much better the GPS is on this phone than it was on my Fascinate.

    The Fascinate actually worked pretty well, but it was slow to lock on; took minutes outdoors, and indoors it never could get a lock at all. I tested our the Nexus earlier, and it locked on instantly, indoors! Samsung seems to have gotten it right this time.

    Well this is troubling.

    I compared my Gnex to the one in the store, and my whites are definitely grayer than theirs.

    :(

    Thanks. I think the more you all throw around sdk and commands and such I'm just gonna wait for my next Star Wars night and bat my baby blues and say pretty please make my phone like yours. :D

    Africa?? Sheesh. You don't do the little flights at all do ya? I think you should start a Captain's Log thread and post pics from places when you can.

    Did you make sure you have the same brightness set?

    I'm in a really trashy town because my wife is looking at a dog breeder's newest litter with a friend who is interested in getting a St. Bernard.

    Everyone in this town is a lazy rube.

    Yep. Both at max brightness. Went to Apple.com, the whitest site I know of, and there's a very marked difference.

    :(

    Definitely considering going back to my local store and exchanging.

    After I lock and unroot of course.

    Preface with a *facepalm*

    I never checked the 'pulse notification light' in my settings. Light flow is a go.

    Hey Han,
    It adds more bulk than the silicone cases, of course. I got one and hated it almost instantly. The inner silicon rubber is a lint magnet. Once or twice in your pocket and it has a frosting of fuzz electrostatically attached. Hate that.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. This blows.

    I noticed that it was a bit gray/dark, but chalked it up to the display Samsung decided to use. But now that I compared the two, there is definitely a difference.

    Does anyone know how the exchange process works? Will they swap it out in the store for me?
