For folks who have been flashing ROMs and themes on their phones over the last few years, the name Brian “Bgill55″ should ring a few bells. Brian has some of the best known themes available under his belt such as Invertnito, Synergy, and Incognito. Now with the release of the unlocked Galaxy Nexus, it looks like he is back to bring us another great theme.
As far as we know, it still doesn’t have an official name, other than “un-blacked out.” Classy though, right? The theme is still in alpha phase, so you can expect a few things to not look right. If waiting for this sexy white theme is something you can’t do, then go ahead and try it out right now. (more…)
The Galaxy Nexus has an outstanding fan base among the developer community and it completely shows when you poke your head into these forums. After receiving plenty of requests for us to post some custom ROM goodness, here is a ROM called the Android Open Kang Project (AOKP). It is based on Android 4.0.3 and has all the features you would hope for when flashing a ROM to your brand new Galaxy Nexus.
There are a few main things people look for when flashing ROMs to the G-Nex. They need to be able to switch up the colors on the navigation bar, add system toggles to the notification bar, switch up their lockscreen to have more than just unlock/camera options, and of course they need WiFi tethering. From what we have experienced, you can do all of that and a whole lot more. AOKP comes with the stock 1.2 GHz kernel that is set to an interactive setting. For battery life, it is one of the best I have seen on a device. If you have been looking for a good custom ROM to throw on your device, then look no further. (more…)
