For those of you looking to upgrade to Android 4.1.2 and with some great customizations, check out the latest CM10 ROM “M2” stable version for your Galaxy Nexus (available for all GSM/Verizon/Sprint). The latest CM10 ROM brings you Android 4.1.2 with more customizations than ever on one of my favorite ROMs of all time.
For homescreen, you can adjust the grid size to your liking to fit more apps on your homescreen, this can be very handy for those of you with lots of apps and have hard time organizing them. I recommend maximum of 5 rows and 7 columns.
Also, you can resize any widgets to your liking (such as Facebook, Twitter) by checking the “Resize any widget” option in Homescreen settings.
Of course, lockscreen now has a ton of customizations including weather/calendar widget, and up to 4 lockscreen shortcuts of your choice.
In “Status bar” settings, you can also activate the slide brightness control, this comes in handy for many dark rooms and fun feature.
With the Power widget option, you can easily customize your toggles in the notification bar.
Also, don’t forget to add more buttons for your navigation bar in settings.
Under “Galaxy Nexus Settings”, you will be able to easily overclock your GPU to 512Mhz, this can be handy for those of you hardcore gamers.
Of course, one of the main features added with Android 4.1.2 is the landscape home screen, you can also adjust settings to view home screen in every angle.
Overall, CM10 ROM M2 coupled with Android 4.1.2 proves to be an immense upgrade and stability/performance is very impressive. I know there’s a ton more custom ROMs coming in the next week or so but for now, give the latest CM10 M2 a try and let me know how it fares on your GNex.
