    Here's some softkey icons I came up with. . . .

    *Edit: Since most Galaxy Nexus rom are allowing you to change the color of the soft keys, all the ones I do from now on will be white. Unless someone has a special request. If you don't want the rom to color the soft keys for you, enter 00000000 as the hex number in the soft key color picker.

    Also, since the roms out now allow us to change these from their rom tools, just download the zip from your phone & unzip it(make sure you know where). Now you'll be able to change them from the rom's tools app in Settings.

    Here's the icons that are themed: Back, Home, Recent, Menu_Big, Menu(in most of the zips. Some looked fine with the stock ones), Search, the Lights out dots when you're in the camera app & the highlight icon that shows up behind the soft keys when pressed(in some cases, there's more than one to choose from). If they are not shown in the screen shots, they are not in the zip.

    I put most of the colored highlight & lights out icons in a zip since these don't always get colored by the rom. Its in the same link as all the soft keys.

    These include 5 high light icons to choose from. The one that looks like light speed is set to be used in landscape mode. The others didn't scale right to be used in landscape, so they are only made to be used in portrait.

    Thanks wicked & Htown315. I'm open to requests too. I chose to do a DIY thread to show others how easy it is to change things like this. It also makes it easier to carry anything you've changed to other roms & updates without waiting for a dev or themer.
