    Default How can I change the navigation bar icons?

    Hi all,

    I have a Verizon Galaxy Nexus running franco.kernel Milestone 4 and AXI0M PATIENT ZERO. The navigation bar icons were changed to something that is not very aesthetically pleasing and would like to switch just the icons back to the original ICS icons.

    I searched the forums but couldn't find anything on this. Can anyone please tell me how this can be accomplished?

    The navigation bar buttons are the ones along the bottom of the screen (back, home and recent tasks). It's the ones that would have been capacitive in previous versions of Android. I am new to Android and I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    I'm not familiar with AXI0M, I do know that ROMs like AOKP have a feature in ROM Control that allows you to change the icon image of the menu buttons.

    I'm not by a computer now so I can't post links but if you Google search Nexus soft keys you will find some soft keys you'll be able to flash. Let me know if you don't find any and in a few hours I can give you some direct links.

    what softkeys do you want to flash? point us to a link and we can tell you how to get them up.
    it's either going to be a theme engine (baked into rom or launcher), softkeys flashable in cwm (.zip file), or a zipthemer/metamorph file.

    Okay, thanks for the replies, guys. Here is the link where I downloaded the .zip file and I also have zipthemer downloaded onto my phone. I'm not sure what to do now. I tried building the theme by clicking the zip file on my phone and rebooting but it doesn't change to the new buttons. Any ideas?

    For ZipThemer, you need to "update" or "configure" edify. Tap on that, then go find the ROMs zip file. So that would be the zip for PZ. That's what you configure to.

    Once configuration is successful, you can add the softkey zip and "build" the theme. Always check "always" for the undo zip.

    If you need any help, I believe there is more information and screenshots in my Don't Panic guide (see signature).

    Where do I add the softkey zip to? I configured the PZ zip successfully and then I go to "+Theme" and select the zip for the softkeys and it says a reboot will be required, I click okay and it looks like it builds it and the output is fine so then I do a manual reboot but nothing changes. Sorry, I'm new. It was so incredibly easy to hack and modify webOS devices, this is a whole new incredibly complex world comparably.

    So I'm trying to load an .apk in the Side Loading Wonder Machine but the program says my device is not found, but I'm pretty sure I loaded the proper USB driver from Samsung's website. Can anyone help me?

    Setup your drivers using something like Wug's Toolkit. That'll guide you through the process.

    You don't need to use the sideload wonder machine at all. Just stick the apk on your sd card over usb, or download it straight to your sd card... use something like root explorer to navigate to it and just click it to install.

    The wonder machine was made for more locked down phones.. like some on at&t which used to not even be allowed to install anything besides official market apps. You certainly have no need for it on the nexus
