ICS Gradient Fix for Many Galaxy Nexus ROMs

It would be both a great thing and a terrible thing if software were perfect out of the box. It would be great because people would stop complaining. However, it would be terrible because people would stop creating. This is the case for Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners who have been suffering a horizontal gradient banding in their settings for quite some time. For anyone that’s had enough of this bug, XDA Senior Member arzbhatia has a fix for you.

The fix comes in the form of a modified framework-res.apk file that is then pushed via ADB. The modification gets rid of the gradient banding entirely—both in the settings menu and wherever else that particular gradient is used. While this won’t improve or image quality in any other way, it will certainly take care of an eyesore for Galaxy Nexus users. In a world where customization is key, removing an eyesore can be just as important. Additionally, arzbhatia is willing to apply the fix to any ROM that needs it, and that’s an opportunity many ROM devs should consider.

You can find more information, the full instructions, download links, and more in the modification thread. As usual, make a backup just in case you run into problems.
