    As a long time user of the OG Droid. I've decided that I may be upgrading tomorrow to a Galaxy Nexus. I know forsure once I get the phone all settled I am going to root it. Just not sure the qualities between each rom out there for Gnex. So I would like some suggestions from you Gnex users of what would be the best. Thanks.

    Alot of Nexus users really like AOKP. I personally am on Android Revolution as I haven't really found the time to flash my phone, I'm a bit behind, but I really like the ROM I use.

    You gotta find the ROM that's right for you. Suggestions are great, and if I had the time I'd try them all, but the past couple months I can't afford to be "offline" while my phone is being flashed.

    Alright thanks, would you know what would be a good screen protector for it? One that is immune to scratches, no orange peel.

    I personally use the Steinheil Ultra Oleophobic and love it. Had it on for awhile and not a single scratch and definitely no orange peel effect.

    Axiom Crossbreed is what I use right now, and it is fantastic coupled with either Franco or LeanKernel. My phone runs like butter at all times, and retains battery life quite well too!

    Doesn't the Oleophobic not cover the whole entire screen though?

    Yeah, I actually had the screen protector in mind. Do you use it yourself?

    I bought an xtreme guard screen protector for $5. Seems like an amazing protector thus far, have had it on for 2+ weeks now. Covers the whole screen except around the earpiece and camera. The space between the two is covered as well.

    I was apprehensive, as you have to make a water/soap solution to install it, but it made installation very easy. I got the protector on perfectly, first try.

    Does it resist scratches and no orange peel effect? Also where did you get it
