** Disclaimer, this is something I am posting here from the www.droidrzr.com forum with direct authorization from the OP to also alert everyone on XDA Developers and the direct download link to the Rom. Ive flashed soo many different Roms and this works the best and in my opinion is the most fast, stable and Force Close free. Battery life is one of the best I've seen for any phone as well. Thanks for this great opportunity to get this to every user smart enough to flash it adamjmtz and JP1044 **

So, Iíll be the first to admit that Iím not a real developer, but I have spent quite a bit of time reading the INTERNET. This is a stock-based RAZR HD ROM that I have themed and debloated to be as close to a stock nexus experience as possible (hence the 'nexesque' name). I basically like things to be clean, unintrusive, and stable.

DISCLAIMER: I built this rom for my own personal use and Iím posting it on here for you to try. Blah blah blah, if you brick your device itís your own damn fault.

OPTIONAL ADDON STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON CUSTOMIZING ROM provided from user hallokitty. Special thanks to him.

The framework is an apk easily installed: http://dl.xposed.info/latest.apk (From this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401)

GravityBox is here: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.ceco.gm2.gravitybox - there's a link to the APK, currently 2.6.9

Just download them both, install the first framework APK first.. then open it. Choose the "Framework" option at the top. Press "Install/Update". It will need a reboot after.

Then install the GravityBox APK.

In your app drawer, go into "Xposed Installer", you'll be back at the same screen as before, press on "Modules", and check "GravityBox". I think it may even need a reboot again, I don't remember.

From there, just go into GravityBox in your app drawer, it has a few good tweaks - the main reason I got this one is because I can make the Navigation Bar smaller so I have more screen space, you can show the menu key etc.. Also you can center the clock on the status bar, make other visual changes to the Rom and many other tweaks to Nexesque.

As for the DPI, I just went with this simple app in the market: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...texdroider_dpi

I'm currently running at 240 and I've had no market issues, but some apps will think you're on a tablet, so it can look odd. I had no problem with any of the settings I tried so far, so I can't report any real issues with that. I didn't try any crazy values though, I say between 200-300 is probably going to work fine.

This is what I've been able to find for you Safe Strap users: " I have this ROM running via safe strap right now. Built it out last night.

SS 3.12

My procedure: Erased rom slot 1 completely by doing standard cache wipes and wiping the OS. Then activated a different ROM slot. Then clicked rom slot 1 and deleted it.

Rebuilt rom slot 1 with a 2 gig partition. Did all the standard wipes again before I installed. Mounted system only, unchecked other boxes. Installed ROM. Once this ROM was installed wiped cache and dalvik cache & booted, no issues to report yet"

I tried this and it kinda works. doesnt connect as good as the proper xt925 ROM and toggling the network type from global to GSM and back after evey reboot is annoying. Please god somebody duplicate this rom on the xt925. PLEASE!

wifi not work
my device is 925, and I own the safestrap procedure that legend221 described. The rom flashed normally, but the wifi does not work.

What could have happened?
