This is now included in my MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Galaxy Nexus - details.

Following on from my earlier 'left hand' patch, I now have a full set of UI patches for the Galaxy Nexus. These patches change the behaviour of the legacy menu button. Options are:

  • Show legacy menu button on both sides
  • Show legacy menu button on both sides and keep them active even when not visible
  • Show legacy menu button on both sides and show a search button
  • Show legacy menu button on both sides, keep them active even when not visible and show a search button
  • Show legacy menu button the left hand side
  • Show legacy menu button the left hand side and keep it active even when not visible
  • Show legacy menu button the right hand side
  • Show legacy menu button the right hand side and keep it active even when not visible
I'm now using both sides always active with search button personally!

Here is the both sides with search button version in operation...

If you'd like to try it out, simply flash the appropriate update zip from below using ClockworkMod Recovery.

This is only tested on a device running the I9250XXKK1 / ITL41D ROM.

Im a righty so no issue for me. But... it would be great to move the native ICS apps dots to the bottom. This thing needs BIG hands.

    Don't flash this on a Verizon Galaxy Nexus (At least the right-hand side version)...

    All of the buttons disappear...

    As a lefty this will stop ALOT of accidental clicks onto the Task Manager.

    Works perfectly.

    Thanks :D

    Mark.
