Phone Mods Section of Galaxy Nexus Toolkit Released Independently

Most users of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus have heard of the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit. With a variety of features like auto-installation of Samsung drivers, and backing up and restoring data down to even dumping logs to your desktop, the Toolkit brings a lot of functionality and help to users. With the Toolkit at version 6.0 now, the Toolkit has donned many additional features thanks to the work of XDA Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator mskip.

With the update, mskip has also spun off one part of the toolkit for standalone use. Instead of dealing with computer to phone communication and functionality, the Phone Mods Section deals specifically with features, settings and modifications of just the Galaxy Nexus itself.

This is all part of the Galaxy Nexus ToolKit but I have made a new Thread for people who may not have noticed it, people who didnt need the ToolKit but may find some of the Mods useful or just people who want to talk about the Phone Mods specifically.

FUNCTIONS OF THE PHONE MODS SECTION V1.6 [GSM + LTE][23RD APRIL 2012]

  • Change the Screen Density (DPI)
  • CWM Recovery, Only 1 No in the Confirmation Screen
  • Camera Sounds (Disable/Enable Camera Shutter, Video Camera Shutter, Focus)
  • Camera Enhancements (Increase Video Bitrate, Sound Bitrate, Photo Quality)
  • Change WiFi Scan Interval (Time between scanning for new Wifi Access Points)
  • Startup Boot Animation Screen (Disable/Enable which affects Boot Time)
  • Screen Colour Control (Change Gamma Offset and Colour Multiplier)

As noted in the instructions, users will have to have an insecure boot image in order to use most of these modifications. Worry not, however, as it’s part of the original Toolkit, so it’s a matter of switching over a couple of menus to get started.

For more information on the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit and its new Phones Mod spin off, you can hit up the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit thread or the Phone Mods thread.

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
