    Truss, as far as roms go, I strongly suggest GummyNex: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/gu...osp-4-0-3-cdma-gummynex-0-3-8-01-01-12-a.html

    I've run several different roms over the past couple weeks and this is the strongest all around rom. Very similar to stock with good speed enhancements. Comes with the Trebuchet launcher, Google Wallet and Car Home. Zero bugs. Rock solid for me so far and the best battery life by far with the included lean kernel.

    Wow... The gang reunites! For some reason DF sends me random emails about posts from threads once in a while, but I'm sure glad they sent me this one! :p

    Boy, reading back through this post sure brings back memories (and I realized I've grown up a lot since some of my posts). ;) Believe it or not, I still had my Gnex till I upgraded to the LG G3 a couple months ago.

    What's everyone been up to? :D

    Some how this Galaxy Nexus is still going strong. And I remember that debacle very well. Those threads were the most watched & moderated at that time. Good to see you guys stop back by

    Watching and waiting for something to come of this Nexus 6 launch brought me back - Something about a Nexus that works on Bed Red to bring out the frustration but still bring us together!

    Still cruising (limping?) on the G Nex as well. It was running great and treating me well as long as I didn't step it to kit kat (weird 3G issues there) right up until it flopped off my kitchen counter about 3 weeks ago. Landed perfectly screen down and left two cracks along the top corners of the actual LCD - the outter glass was still in perfect condition.... but alas - the screen was dead. Ordered a used GNex on ebay for $45 (screen had burn in but works, looks like it was a floor model somewhere), swapped the screens out and viola, she lives again! I will tell ya, though. That week-ish that I spend looking for a cheap replacement gnex screen I was using the LG Optimus Exceed 2 ($50 off contract from Best Buy) was a really weird experience. Small screen, no front facing camera, 8gb on board memory, no SD card, no 4GLTE, no way to root that I could find, LG UI, but it was also so snappy and had great 3G reception... it was weird just having a phone with nothing to tinker with for a week - kind of liberating, but at the same time - I missed my amazing Nexus goodness.

    I use my Gnex as a music player & that's about it. I bought this Dev edition MotoX from Motorola & am probably going to stick with it until I see how the Nexus 6 is on Verizon. I like to tinker with things too much to get anything other than a dev edition phone or a Nexus.

    Yeah, I felt the same way, but now with school, I just don't have the time to be flashing ROMS all the time anymore. :(
    Now if there's a possibility of VZ getting the Nex6 I might go with it! ;)

    It's funny you say that about the screens. I've never broken a screen on a device, but the night before I got my G3, my Nexus flew out of my hand, and spiderwebed the screen when it hit the ground. =P Good thing I was upgrading.
