    While were waiting for ROM's to be baked, what are you looking for? I have a short list:
    • native ad blocking
    • long press to add widgets on home screen
    • eliminate google search bar and reclaim the space
    • native quiet hours
    Other than those, I'm liking stock. What do you guys think?

    I will added to Bob's list having the status powerbar drop down would be nice. You know the buttons in the status bar drop down to turn things on and off, etc....

    I would want smaller on screen buttons along with getting rid of the search bar.

    I would want the max screen real estate I could get.

    A lot of these options are already up and working over at xda. You just have to mix and match what your looking for (have a nandroid/backup ready...lol). Right now I have extened power menu, no longer have the Google search at the top of the home screens (and the space is usable and Google search still works).

    I'm putting together a zip right now for battery percentages.

    Home screens to auto rotate

    five soft key button on the bottom: back, home, search, settings. I see mods that have this with setting on both sides but would look better if we could see them all the time.

    A ROM that auto toggles between 4g and 3g (or even 4g to 1x) while the screen is off, and does it seamlessly, to conserve battery.

    Incremental upgrades! I want to be able to go from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4, 4.1, etc without having to completely wipe and reload. The carriers do it, c'mon, you can too :)

    Juice Defender

    Nova Launcher


    Most of you guys are searching for roms when you should be looking at apps. Half the things you want are solvable with them. And if not, just look at mods. Go on rootzwiki, they have a bunch of stuff.

    Thats how my stock GN works so idk what you mean lol... Btw is there going to be Sourcery for the GN? :p
