    There was very minimal before the launch. I saw a couple commercials for it during the Sunday night football game the day before it's launch.

    Not much, Verizon had it's PR statement (like the Nexus did in October) and HTC had a event about it. Making a big deal out of Beats.

    Here's one for you - I had a dream (nightmare?) that I broke the screen on my rent-a-rezound and couldn't exchange it for the Nexus. I woke up in a panic! Lol

    Agreed. I like to see every side of an argument. If for some reason, what the other person has to say changes my opinion on the matter, then I'll admit it. If not, I'll agree to disagree to just chalk it up to being a matter of personal preference. Not need to get nasty about it like some. No need to post short, rude comments that have no real purpose other than igniting a flame. And I'm the same as you... I don't use the lock. But I've been in situations where I felt it best (especially when I left my phone in my desk drawer at work). But looking back, I guess I should have been more worried about someone straight up taking my phone and not so much with them just unlocking it...lol.

    That is panic inducing.

    I have started texting back 'what?' to a lot of them. Just to show how irritating it is.

    seriously doubting VZW is even going to respond to those who signed up for email on Gnex at all or if they do it will be a week after launch.
    As for the ICE CREAM, I have a half gallon in my freezer if you like caramel swirl. Best I can do there.

    I have decided to retire for the evening from this thread. It is exhausting hitting refresh all day long :]

    Here's to hoping that tomorrow is the last day without the Nexus!

    I got a fever, and the only prescription is Ice Cream Sandwich!

    $100 Upgrade Update

    I stopped at a Verizon store today. Basically got some bad news. The notes everyone is getting put on your account (self included) will only be applied at the discretion of the store manager. Since the CSR is the one giving it, we're better off getting a CSR to issue the credit when making a purchase over the phone. The promotion isn't on your account since you didn't get it in the mail, so they will have to manually discount the device (hence manager approval).


    Side story 1: I talked to a telesales rep today and they said if the device becomes available for order/preorder/etc. tomorrow, the telesales rep said they'd be able to give us free overnight shipping to match the store release. You'd just have to call telesales and request it. I think this is our best bet in attempting to get the $100 credit and getting the device on Thursday.


    Side story 2: I got to check out the dummy GN since the store I called refused to get out the demo unit (they promised demo on the phone). It's a perfect size and I am looking forward to owning it. They also let me check out the Incipio and Otterbox Defender cases. I compared them to my high gloss OEM case I got from VZ, and I think the high gloss will be best for me since it'll slide easy in/out of my pocket. The accident prone should consider Incipio and the phone destroyers should definitely get the Otterbox. Otterbox Defender is a beast, very big/bulky. Wish I could have checked out the Commuter, but they didn't have that case.

    Thank you for this but isn't the superboot just a script for the manual method? I took a look at the .bat file and it looks like all it does is just run the fastboot command booting the unsecure boot image. But the manual method requires you to this this anyways?

    Not sure why that's an issue. :thinking:

    Who was it that asked for holiday avatars? Not only do I spend more time than I'd care to admit on this site, but now I just spent an hour trying to add (Max from the Grinch) antlers onto a chicken. I need help.

    I'm in central...specifically Jamesburg. There are probably about 20 retirement communities in a 10 mile radius of my house so my chances of snagging my nexus before anyone else are pretty high. :D

    The ADB part is even easier than the OG was back then. The drivers are a pain, tho.
