    So long story short, I replaced my first Nexus, which had major vertical banding, with a new one. No banding at all. Unfortunately, I noticed a problem with the new one as well: a heavy yellowish tint to everything. I have read a bit about different kernels having the capability to calibrate screen color, and I was wondering if anyone had done this yet or had any recommendations. Thanks.

    i havent heard of this before, did it start when you first got it?


    believe it or not sometimes people can get a bad batch, and you can get these bad phones one after the other, after the other.

    my screen is turned all the way up, because i love the bright hd color screen :)

    Unfortunately it came out of the box this way. I compared it to my first Gnex and it was obvious. At this point I doubt that I can get a replacement, since you cant really call this a "defect".

    I was reading that some kernels come with color calibration tools, or precalibrated. If that is false, then my only hope might be to take the phone into a Samsung store and ask for a new one (Apple Store style). Not sure where Id find one of those though.

    EDIT: Ok, I did some digging and this was the kernel with the prealtered color balance. Since I'm a former DX guy, I'm a bit unclear on this whole Kernel flashing thing. Assuming Im rooted, do I flash this through Clockwork Mod, or is this another fastboot thing? Also, is this something that I can reverse with a Nandroid if it's no good?

    You flash like a rom in recovery, just no need to wipe data. A nandroid does backup/restore kernels.

    Would a 4.0.3 kernel be compatible with the stock 4.0.2 ROM?

    Some people seem to have done this with no trouble, and others ran into a ton of trouble. In general, you're supposed to be on a 4.0.3 ROM before flashing a 4.0.3 kernel...the other is risky, IMHO.
