    Sad day for me, listen up GNex owners…

    As of yesterday I was running Pete Alfonso’s Bugless Beast with Franco’s kernel – everything was grand. For whatever reason, I mistakenly turned on encryption – DO NOT DO THIS!!!! 

    Yes, I already knew the only way back was to flash stock images and radios and bootloader – great, always fun to do that, so I went ahead and did, then re-rooted, flashed a rooted ROM< and that's when things went south.

    Now the 'More' menu in Settings NEVER comes up and locks up the OS completely. I've reset, hard reset, re-flashed stock, rooted ROMS, NOTHING has worked. It seems the encryption is still present and now after re-flashing everything the phone is wonky.

    So now my phone is dead, going back to VZW – don't EVER turn on encryption. Google f'd this one up big time!!!!

    • ddevito

      Well, after many trials and tribulations I struck gold with the latest 4.0.4 leak via XDA.

      4.0.4 flies!!!! 

    • srcrowl

      How do you mistakenly turn on encryption? Its like a couple hour process, and your battery has to be fully charged if not plugged in, so I would say you purposely turned on encryption, which was probably a mistake?

      • ddevito

        I said mistakenly not accidentally.

    • Kr00

      Sounds like trouble in fandroid paradise Dom? Seems like you don’t know much about android then. I thought android was perfect. Ouch. Just sayin.

  • I’m sticking with stock ics until something so crazy comes along that it’s impossible to say no too. So far, still loving 4.0.4… Don’t even have reason to be rooted at the moment.

  • ddevito

    Nice clean themes.

    My one gripe with stock is that the on-screen navigation buttons are white but the status bar icons are blue – hate to be anal retentive but I’m surprised they have them that way.

    BTW – are those Beautiful Widgets? If so, which skins? Thanks

  • thesaber2000

    Still using that search bar? Im surprised. I got rid of that as fast as i could, takes up wait to much screen space.
    Nice themes by the way love sonnys stuff. Im running unblack right now.

    • RadicalPie

      I actually find it convenient. it’s faster than opening the browser especially when your homepage isn’t Google.

        Its not faster than a softkey search button! 😀

  • Skyskioc

    Im running Black Ice on my Gnex and it looks awsome ! Also just recieved my Cruzer Lite cases and put it on and BAM ! THIS THING KNOCKS IT OUT OF THE PARK ! Just saying. GNEX  FTW !

    I like to know what that widget is from. Anyone know?

  • Fancy Widgets he has customized in his downloads folder, he has a few apps that are themed

  • I have been alternating Sonny’s themes for a few weeks now going from Lucid to Crimson to Tangerine and have to say the amount of detail that goes into them is amazing. If you don’t like the black and white look at his other colors, all minimalistic but with a splash of color. Hopefully some of his others such as Arctic Blue (look it up in the market) will make its way over.

  • Evilkokonut

    what clock and weather widgets are those?

  • Scull314

    will M3 still work for this?

  • Anonymous

    would these work on aokp for any device, or gnex only? would like to try on my touchpad 🙂

  • Can’t wait for CM9 to get the theme engine then themes will be a lot easier to apply.

  • Chris Pinola

    i’m not really a fan of B&W color schemes, however while looking through this thread I discovered the Tangerine (vibrant orange) theme which I think is awesome and a nice change from the ICS blue that i’ve been staring at for the past few months. so, thanks!

    • I think the orange would drive me nuts but what I loved about it was seeing how thoroughly he themed everything. I feel like a lot of work went into these themes, and I can always appreciate that, even if I’m not using them.

  • I love the fact that we have so much choice with Android, BUT I’ve been curious since the D1 days why so many people like to take their beautiful full color screen and make it black and white.

  • Anonymous

    I think that looks mighty fine to be honest. I am all about the cold/minimalism.

  • I still have another month until I can upgrade from my DX to the Gnex, and I can’t wait after seeing all these themes and mods for it >.<

    • I made the switch from the X, and I feel confident saying you’ll be thrilled. I loved my Droid X, but I don’t think I’ll ever buy another non-Nexus phone after this.

    • I also went from the DX to the Galaxy Nexus and it’s like night and day.  It feels like the old days again when I was changing ROMs on my original Droid almost daily.

    It looks cold as sh*t were this cat is at!!!

    That is one fugly custom theme…just saying…

    • James

      Some of them look really good on the RootzWiki thread.  It’s always  nice to have options.

    • If you have nothing nice to say, please don’t say anything at all. 


      • I don’t like it either, but it’s just opinion. No need to take it personally.

      • df2rools

        cant leave feedback/thoughts?

        delete the whole comments/fourm section, thanks!

        • “feedback/thoughts” would be “I don’t like these themes because ____ (I don’t like black and white) (I think the icons are too blocky) (I prefer _____ theme)”

          Saying everything sucks and you hate it is trolling. There’s a difference.

      • wow he just said stated an opinion, and the associate editor of droid life tried to shut him down. 

        • Well, no. If Tim-o-tato had wanted to shut him down, he could have deleted the comment or banned him. Instead he responded politely. And he makes a good point – stating an opinion is one thing, but so many people fail to understand that just because they don’t like something doesn’t mean that it sucks, is fugly, and should be eradicated from the earth. It just means it doesn’t suit their taste, so a comment saying “Oh it’s so ugly” doesn’t add to the discussion in any way.

          • I agree, saying its fugly doesnt add to the conversation. I just dont like the idea of a site slapping the wrist of its audience for something so commonly done. Unless theyd like to take a site wide stance and start banning people for saying they dislike something for whatever reason. It adds more to the discussion than not saying its ugly. Perhaps what he meant to say is that it detracts from the beauty that already was ICS. Now would you smite me down for stating my opinion?

          • I wouldn’t smite anyone for any of this. *shrug* And I think what you said added to the discussion much more than the original comment we’re talking about, as well.

            I love this site, but it’s gotten to where I hate to participate in the comments section, because people have ogtten progressively ruder. When I started reading Droid Life in March (ish) of 2009, conversations in the comments were enthusiastic and friendly. It’s gotten worse and worse. And anytime I comment here now, I just wait for the email notifying me of a reply that someone has called me “faggot” (which is not only incredibly offensive, but also hilariously irrelevant to me). I usually don’t even bother, and that is sad because I used to love these discussions. I have so much to say tonight because I’ve just gotten fed up with general rudeness and am tired of biting my tongue, so to speak.

          • Faggot…

          • I suppose that was bound to happen, really.

          • We love peoples opinions on things. That’s why we run a blog. We have the best Android community in the world, so we would never want to ruin that. But, somebody spent a lot of time to put that theme together and does it free of charge – and to just call it “fugly” I find that quite immature and borderline offensive. 

            Either way you slice it, it’s not like I’m going to ban him lol

          • fair enough. well done.

        • Anonymous

          An opinion worth sharing either comes with an explanation or requires no explanation. Otherwise your just stomping around chanting “we’re really upset!”

      It’s beautiful and the minimalistic transparency looks great on it. Better than most themes out for the Nexus. 

  • Bleakneonblack

    What are the Widgets??

  • Ahsan

    Two menu buttons?

    • They’re page right page left buttons 

      • Ahsan

        Oh, thanks.

        • Kamauff

          No they are menus on both sides so whichever hand you’re using works.

    • can these be removed in theme??
