    Just wondering if there are any plans for a gingerbread port for the nexus. Or a complete theme for gingerbread somewhere. I miss the black/green contrast.

    There are green themes, like http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ga...theme-glowing-green-v2-0-aokp-milestone3.html <-- that. There could be more. I believe that is the most complete green theme though. I am not sure if it is ported to more ROMs or not yet.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for a Gingerbread ROM though. It would be a lot of work, for more than likely a step backwards in performance. Side note, it would require some trickery to work due to the GNex not having softkeys. Perhaps they could use the tablet mods from CM7 for that.

    I just all around loved the Gingerbread layout. The UI went with everything, unlike the ICS theme. The new swype with its orange accent just sticks out like a sore thumb on ICS and I think it would be more tolerable on Gingerbread, I am a minimalist at heart though. I know that there is a Swype theme for ICS, but that too looks pretty bad.

    The nexus probably isn't the right phone for you if you want gingerbread. Why not get a rezound or maxx? Remember, being a nexus means first in line updates, so what good is that on gingerbread?
    That being said, a honeycomb rom would be interesting to see, but I wouldn't use it still.

    And where is the ics themed swype? Is it official version?

    perhaps I could make a basic android green/black theme. No promises though.

    A honeycomb theme would be boss. With the same tint of blue as hc, the bottom buttons, the clock font. Would be a nice theme. Just saying. Who agrees?

    It was released when Swype didn't have support for our screen size. Works exactly the same, but I don't know if it would receive updates.
