I used the grey RitDye. I placed it in warm but not boiling water (with the dye mixed in) I kept it on a very low heat and moved the case about in the mixture every now and again. The inside back of the case is a different material and did not take the dye, everything else did...although the edge of the case (the more flexible part around the screen of the phone) ended up needed a lot longer in the mixture to dye meaning the rest of the case got very dark so I had to go for an almost but not quite black. The case was probably in the dye for about 2 hours.
I would guess that the grey case could be dyed a colour like red or blue but I didnt want to run up against the discolouration problem again so just went dark. Since I had already been refunded for the case due to the colour problem I took a risk and dyed the case.
You probably can't see the nexus logo in this photo but it is still visible from certain angles and certain light conditions but I actually prefer cases without branding.
