Galaxy Nexus |OT|

Still being haunted by tablet hybrid mode.
Tablet mode is awesome. Loved how it worked on my phone. Next update will have individual DPI settings for apps, so you will no longer get mini apps. (I actually preferred the smaller DPI because I could see a shit load of songs on Spotify and the recents button showed ALL of my apps running without having to scroll.)
 
good luck. Make sure you triple check that your file is there and is not 0 in size. If you are on Win7 you have to most likely start the command prompt as administrator in order to have the file be created.


Gcubed, sorry to sound like a n00b but I have no idea how those asb commands work in the command prompt. Can you help please?

I've installed the Android SDK, the usb drivers but where do I input those adb commands???

Search for "cmd" in the start menu and then hold Ctrl when you hit Enter.
 
Not that big a n00b, I know what cmd is....when I navigate to the folder where adb is installed (C:/program files/android/android-sdk/platform tools/adb.exe), I can't get the adb command to work.

If I type adb devices, it does not show me my device. If I try to run the backup commands, it does not work. So I'm confused.

Sorry. :p

Have you enabled debug mode on your phone? Settings -> Developer options -> USB debugging -> Checked
 
I typically get 22+ hours with at least two hours of screen time which includes a little gaming. If the radio didn't eat up so much, it would be much better.

The other day I think I got 3.5 hours of screen time and the battery lasted 15+.

This is with stock battery, LTE

Wow.

Im going to finally pick mine up today. I also ordered the 2100 mah battery online as well since apparently it doesn't increase the thickness noticeably and adds just a minor boost in life.
 
FIXED, used the GN root toolkit. :)


EDIT: Oops, sorry for Double post.
glad some others helped you out. Remember to make sure you backup actually has data in it before you wipe your phone!

This functionality was built into the phone in the preview versions of ICS but got dropped on official release, hopefully it comes back into the final versions so you dont have to use adb consoles to do a full backup
 
I loaded the leaked VZW 4.0.4 build from a couple of months ago onto a friend's phone. Is there a quick and easy way for him to load the "official" one that just came out? He's not rooted at the moment, and I'm kinda far away from him.
 
Just bought this. With 4.0.4 I could see my battery lasting over 24 hours with the extra capacity.
I went 28hrs on battery yesterday, had about 14% left before plugging it in. And that was with about 3.5hrs of screen time, and frequently dropped signal (was working in sports hall so reception was at minimum). 24hrs on moderate use should be easy (signal allowing).
 
Man is 4G fast. I'm almost willing to take the battery life hit for the speed I get. Starting to creep up on my home network speeds.

No complaints so far, love the phone. We'll see how I feel in a week with the battery.

Sweet! What method did you use, preconfigured rom or editing files yourself? Pros/cons?

Got my Nexus today (LTE). Absolutely love it (no defects with the screen either), except it can't hold a 4G connection at all. If I switch to just 3G only it seems to be fine. It's running 4.0.2.

From what I'm reading online, this is a really common problem? Kind of can't believe it hasn't been fixed yet. Does 4.0.4 solve it?

I have had a solid 4g connection pretty consistently but I live in and around NYC. Its gone to 3g every once in a while but I havent had major issues with that.

By the way, here's my first battery results even with New Phone Syndrome (just got the phone yesterday ) and going through subways, areas with poor signal, etc. I also downloaded an album or two down from Amazon MP3. I don't think I'll have a problem.

the newer radios in the 4.0.4 update are much better on 3G/4G switching

Hmm I dont know if it's merely a switching issue since I'm in an area with pretty good 4g reception. It just seems like whenever the 4g connection is used heavily (speedtest or downloading a big app) it drops out. I really hope it's not a hardware issue because I think I lucked out with getting a really good screen.

edit - Gonna talk to Amazon and get a replacement after reading this thread: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=24345#c64 Why do so many companies refuse to give a shit about quality control or even acknowledge issues with their products. I'm seeing it happen more and more.
 
This is the 5th time this has happened: the phone gets graphical corruption and freezes. Screen stays on with weird lines and colors, won't turn off unless I remove the battery.

Is that just a crash or something else? 4 out of 5 times this happened while reading sms.
 
I just got this phone about 2 weeks ago and I'm having issues with this phone already. When I am messing around on my phone, whether it is looking at my music collection, browsing the web. My phone will do two things: 1. Will get extremely hot around the camera casing but will stay on. 2. The phone will just turn off without getting hot at random times.

My phone has turned itself off about 5 times today and became unbearably hot once.

Is this normal for the Nexus to do this? My previous Incredible would never turn off on its own and would never get hot as to scorch your hand when touching it.


Should I just go to the Verizon store and get them to replace it?

fake edit- I googled the heat issue and it seems pretty normal for the phone and people are stating the newest update will fix that (Whenever Verizon decides to give it to me). But I'm talking really hot, as in you can feel the heat through your jeans when its in your pocket, unwilling to touch the top of the phone when it is this hot. There is also a little burnt plastic smell when it sits at that temperature for more than 10 minutes.

That does not seem normal at all, I'd advise you to take it back asap (before it explodes lol).

It CAN get unbearably hot with full brightness and 4g on while charging and heavy usage. I just make sure NOT to do those things at the same time that often.

I'm a super heavy phone user, especially with music, and while my unit would get warm, it only got HOT when I had the adapter attached and I was watching a video at max brightness. Otherwise, that doesn't sound normal at all. This was when I had stock, too.

It happens more often when I am not charging my phone, odd. I don't know how to get the exact brightness setting (I assume you just estimate) but my brightness is set to right under the U in Automatic Brightness, so maybe ~20%.

I haven't rooted my phone or anything. (By the way, would rooting the phone or installing a different ROM, say Cyanogen Mod, void the Verizon warranty?)

I take it the random shut downs aren't normal. When it does this it looks like the phone is locking itself, but without the "TV" animation.

Return it. Something is faulty if it's shutting down to prevent damage.

Mine can get pretty damn hot, but not enough to shut down.
 
I have the extended battery and I'm not getting nearly the battery life some of you are. Currently at 41% discharging at around 9 hours 30 min. My keep awake time looks to be my main problem at 3 hours 31 min.

Is this an app that is continuously running that I need to find and kill? Or sone type of conflict perhaps?

Thanks
 
So SMS's just stopped working on my GNex. Among the radio issues I am having I am currently backing up my SD partition and gonna wipe this sucker!

On the plus side... SUPER BATTERY ENABLED

GSM, standard battery, stock 4.0.4 IMM76I for anyone interested.
 
Welp, I've been completely unable to connect to any wireless network. Tried at home of the weekend, no dice. Office Wifi, same issue.

It seems to authenticate with the credentials and then just constantly says obtaining an ip address. Eventually it'll say "avoiding poor network" or something like that and just disconnect

4.02 Verizon. Any tips? Do I need to disable/enable anything?

I'm going to try just using a static ip but is this something that can be fixed with an update? Don't want to not to be able to use DHCP at all

Edit : Able to connect with a static ip no problem.

Try turning off the "do not connect to low signal networks".
 
I I had a Verizon galaxy nexus for a time before switching back to AT & T for the one X. In the short time I owned the phone I bought the official Verizon extended battery with the back cover. Unfortunately my return period is up so would anyone be interested in buying it off me for like $15 plus postage? Send me a PM if so.
