Galaxy Nexus Add-on Pack Brings Many Galaxy S III Delights
With all the development going on with the Samsung Galaxy S III, it’s hard to believe that the phone hasn’t actually been released yet. Thus far, the device has been rooted, its launcher was ported to the Galaxy S II, and it even brought some controversy over the extraction and modification of S Voice. However, if you think the Galaxy S III stuff is over, you are gravely mistaken, as the porting fun has just begun.
Now, the Galaxy S III goods are hitting the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the form of a giant add-on pack that gives users a bunch of SGS III stuff all at once. XDA Senior Member madphone, along with a long list of helpers, has released the mod pack, which includes everything from the SGS III launcher to themed UI elements. The mod pack also brings a few Galaxy S III applications including—get your pitchforks ready—S Voice. The add-on pack is reportedly only compatible with CyanogenMod 9 Nightlies. However, it seems to work on all recent nighties, so it doesn’t really matter which day you’re on.
To get started, head on over to the original thread and Touchwiz-ify your Nexus.
