I am proud to present you my collection of Softkeys for the Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus
I'd be grateful if you want to press the Thanks button if you're going to use these Softkeys!

Read this before you apply these buttons!
- If your ROM doesn't have a built-in Search or Big Menu softkey, then these images won't be used on your phone, it will only show Back, Home & Recent
- You need a rooted phone otherwise none of these methods will work! Stock rooted combined with ZipThemer works for most people, MetaMorph not always so preferably use ZipThemer
- The buttons will be a little less bright on your phone due to a layer of alpha transparency over them when you're not pressing them.
- IT IS ALWAYS RECOMMENDED TO DO A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE FLASHING THESE SOFTKEY MODS!

Installation Methods

*** AOKP ***
  1. Go to the Dropbox page of the style of your preference
  2. Download the images you need from the folder and save them (probably to /sdcard/download)
  3. Fire up Settings -> Rom Control -> Navigation Bar and select the images you just downloaded
  4. Done!

*** Paranoid Android ***
  1. Download one of the Softkey themes that starts with MMZT_
  2. Make a backup of your ROM in Recovery
  3. Extract SystemUI.apk from your ROM (located in /system/app) using your favorite File Explorer App with Root access
  4. Open SystemUI.apk and put each image from the MMZT_ file (located in /res/drawable-xhdpi) downloaded in the following folders located at /res (replace the existing images): drawable-sw600dp-xhdpi drawable-sw720dp-xhdpi drawable-sw1000dp-xhdpi and drawable-xhdpi
  5. Paste new SystemUI.apk into /system/app using your favorite File Explorer App with Root access

*** ZipThemer (Recommended, Failsafe) ***
  1. Download one of the Softkey themes that starts with MMZT_
  2. Open ZipThemer. If this is the first time using ZipThemer then you have to select "Update Edify", "Browse", and select the .zip of the ROM you're currently using (this identifies the update script and needed files, if you're using a flashed theme on top of your ROM then please select the theme instead of the ROM) and press "Configure"
  3. Go back to the main menu and press "+Theme", select the downloaded MMZT_ file and press "Build It!". Select "Always" on the popup prompt to make a backup in case it doesn't work or you want to undo
  4. Boot into recovery, and flash the zip on the root of your /sdcard/ like any other flashable ROM/Theme
  5. Wipe your Cache and Dalvik Cache just to be sure nothing weird happens on reboot
  6. Reboot your phone after this and you're done!
  7. If it somehow still fails just flash the "undo-zip" using steps 4-6 :)

*** MetaMorph (Easier but riskier than ZipThemer) ***
  1. Download and install MetaMorph from the Market
  2. Launch MetaMorph at least once so that the folder AndroidThemes will be created on /sdcard/. (You can also create the folder manually if it doesn't)
  3. Download a Softkey Style using the MetaMorph link and move this .zip file to /sdcard/AndroidThemes using your favorite file explorer
  4. Open MetaMorph, choose "Unzip/Extract new theme" and select the .zip file you downloaded. A popup screen will appear, meaning it has been extracted. Press the "Close" button.
  5. Hit the "Apply all!" button and wait +/- 5 seconds (nothing will happen)
  6. Reboot your phone immediately after this and you're done!

User sr-ha colored the standard buttons to match ICS (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...7&postcount=36).



Nicely done in my opinion :) I posted them in the Maguro Build thread...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=20757458&postcount=442

Yeah I already asked him if I could post it here and he agreed so I'm going to add these today or tomorrow!

trying to remake the mockup pic but the darn things are showing to dark on screen :(

EDIT:

Think I nailed it.. let me know if you want them :p

Well I could add it to the First Post if you send them to me and agree with that, of course with credit to you :)

    Installation Methods (I recommend Method 1)

    Straight from your Galaxy Nexus
    1. Easy Breezy Method - Using MetaMorph (only for the MetaMorph links!)
    1. Download and install MetaMorph from the Market, open it at least once so that the folder AndroidThemes will be created on /sdcard/
    2. Download a Softkey Style using the MetaMorph link and move this .zip file to /sdcard/AndroidThemes using your favorite file explorer
    3. Open MetaMorph, choose "Unzip/Extract new theme" and select the .zip file you downloaded. A popup screen will appear, meaning it has been extracted. Press the "Close" button.
    4. Hit the "Apply all!" button and wait +/- 5 seconds (nothing will happen)
    5. Reboot your phone immediately after this and you're done! Oh, and set a new wallpaper because it may be restored to default (ProTip!)

    Thanks alot everybody!

    I have converted all these for use with MetaMorph, credit for each icon pack was given in the install pack :)

    I will be uploading a few I have modified/made myself

    Dropbox Folder Galaxy Nexus MetaMorph Icon Packs

    MediaFire Folder Galaxy Nexus MetaMorph Icon Packs

    Box.com Folder Galaxy Nexus MetaMorph Icon Packs

    You guys know where the Thanks button is located :)

    Ok, I got bored and just created a new set of icons..... :)

    Here is the download link, followed by some screen shots:
    http://www.multiupload.com/TGAXLDZU14








    Using the words "search" and "recent" were too long for the icons design and font size, so I changed search to "find" and recent to "task" (like task manager)
