For Galaxy Nexus owners that just picked up their device from Verizon, you may finally have a reason to root your device. Yes, rooting will void your warranty – but it opens a world of latest accessible features. Even though Verizon’s Nexus is fairly new, development has been progressing at an wonderful rate. We recently discussed a battery mod compatible with the Android Revolution HD ROM for the Galaxy Nexus, and now there's a softkey mod that adds a “Search” softkey pictured as a magnifying glass to the right of the underside menu buttons.
The softkeys are also available in numerous colors; personally, I like the ICS blue. It looks wonderful. You can currently expect support for each the 4.0.2 and 4.0.3 primarily based ROMs, and as they are incorporated into future work – I’m positive the project can continue its support. Paired with the battery percentage modification, the Galaxy Nexus couldn’t feel more complete.
However, we tend to haven’t had a chance to check out any of the newly developed kernels yet – and there are masses out there. Most require the user to be on a 4.0.3 base, but till a few a lot of bugs are discovered I plan on keeping a close eye out rather than continuously flashing the latest builds. If any of you are rocking a Galaxy Nexus, be happy to share with the community how abundant higher/worse your battery life has become.
