Show Off Your Home Screens Day!


It is spring and that means it is time to show off everyone’s wonderful home screens! It has been a while since we last posted one of these, so put forth your sexiest setup and let the world in on your secrets. We tend to believe that our community is the best in the world here at Droid Life and are always curious to see how your phones are looking. With the Galaxy Nexus and many other HD phones having been out for months now, you should have had plenty of time to get them looking beautiful. Let’s see what you’ve made.


  1. For those with the Galaxy Nexus, you have native screenshots! You can take screenshots by pressing in Power and Volume Down at the same time and holding for 2-3 seconds.
  2. If you do not have a G-Nex, you can either screenshot in adb (we have a tutorial for you here) or root and use something like Screenshot ER.
  3. Once you have your screenie, upload it to whichever image hosting website you use and then paste the URL that ends with the file name (.png, .jpg, .gif, etc.) into the comments.
  4. Feel to share your widgets, wallpapers, and other apps used to get to your look.

    Right now running Liberty 3 v. 2.0 Rom. Cyanbreadx theme through rom toolbox.  Had the ICS cyan battery and ICS signal meter custom made from a themer friend of mind on the XDA forums. Used desktop visualizer for the android at the bottom.  Safe to say I have a fixation of the the electric cyan/black color combo…just love how the colors pop.  I will be getting my Gnex next month on my upgrade and be using the Gummy 0.9 Rom that’s all the rage.

    can it be done on a stock rom… this is a business phone and don’t want to tweak it.

    Quick Question how do you remove the time on the top right banner of the phone?

    • Rodeojones000

      It’s an option is some custom ROMs.

    Here’s two. The first one (Storm Troopers) is my current setup. The second one is a shot from last month that I happened to still have and thought I’d share.

    With all these sweet homescreens, would it be posible to do a tutorial on how to install new icons?

  • DrDroid

     Simple but what I use most.

  • number01pup
  • xanaxdroid

    What’s the best place to get icons for ICS? Deviantart?

    Apex launcher; status bar and dock hidden.  Most used apps relegated to swipe-pad.  Simple, but doesn’t require root.

    How do you guys get the Wallpapers to stay full res when cropping for wall paper. the stupid crop thing when setting a downloaded pic looks blurry, and i can’t fit the entire picture.

    This is why Android is so beautiful… the pure aspect of being unique and creative.  IOS would never match this
