Motoblur Nav Bar and Launcher for the Galaxy Nexus

Not many people are a fan of Motoblur. There are various reasons for this, but mostly it boils down to the excessive bloatware. However, there is a lot to like about the newest versions of Motoblur. Now, Sprint and Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners can check out Motoblur without having to buy a Motorola phone.

XDA Senior Member aooga has prepared a nice package to get Motorola’s UI running on your Toro or Toroplus Galaxy Nexus, including the cool circle widget. Currently, it is compatible with CM10 Nightlies from 9/15 onward, AOKP build 2, and ParanoidAndroid 2.12. The clock widget is a downloadable application from the Google Play Store. This mod was based off the original GSM version by XDA Senior Member evilisto, which is also compatible with the same ROMs and includes the same things. Unlike the CDMA version, the GSM version has been updated to include Tablet UI as well.

To install, just download the flashable zip, flash in custom recovery, and enjoy the Motorola look and feel. For the full effect, grab the circle widget from the Play Store. For additional details, check out the GSM thread or the CDMA thread.

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015 [Updated]

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors.
