    I stumbled upon the Metrostation Icon Pack in the market (I think it was free) and pulled it from there. You can color the icons however you like (if you don't assign them a color, they come out rainbow striped) and the hex code for ICS blue is #33b5e5.

    Thanks. Dumb question but how do I apply the hex code for ICS blue? I can enter the code but it doesn't change the color. I'm missing a simple step but I don't know what it is.

    Continually resetting up my desktop after ROM flashing. Here's mine, nice and simple. Thanks to elmerjr128 for leading me to Wallbase. Great app. (wp is from there)

    This might be dumb question but how do you add the circle battery widget on a stock android phone? There is no such thing as Menu-> add widget so i am stuck.

    If you're completely stock, scroll through your apps until you get to widgets (assuming you've downloaded Circle Battery) and long press and post it on your desktop.
    This is one of the features I miss from previous Android versions (ability to long press on the home screen and place a widget directly there). Fortunately, Nova Launcher has this capability built in.

    Go into your app drawer and click the tab at the top that says widgets. Then find the one you want and long press on it till it grabs and you can move it to whatever screen you want

    AFAIK, this is a stock part of ICS that can't be changed without root. Whether you use a certain ROM or Metamorph, it will require root.
    Not too difficult and certainly worth it on a Nexus device.

    Thanks for the reply BabyBlues

    Tried that but there is no widget in the widget drawer associated with the circle battery app.

    Settling into the following. Had some trouble uploading and attaching the right size files. Sorry if these are too small.

    Still looking for an app drawer icon that is not quite as bold as what I have.

    It's been great for me. Only a couple of times have I had a slow image load but it's worked very well. Widgets seem to come and go sometimes but all I have to do is slightly scroll up or down and they reappear instantly. I love the look of it.

    If you want images, I have about 100 of them built and ready to use.

    Root your phone. It's so easy, especially now that there's an automated way to do it!

    What kind of Agenda app is this? Seems like it would be better then the stalk calendar widget that comes with the phone. Also how did you get your messages to show as a widget like that?

    Looks like it might be the Pure calendar widget.
    I don't know about the messages one though.

    Late on this one, but I really like it. Do we know what background and widgets are used here?

    Hmm, very interesting! How did you get the 4G signal up in the top bar? Was that included with the launcher?

    I actually made it based on a wallpaper I have for my computer. I tried to upload it to photobucket but it shrunk it down in size.

    If anyone knows how I can upload the full resolution, let me know and I will do that.
