    I'm moving from the Galaxy Nexus to the Note 2 (Well Already Moved). I like many can't stand all the bloatware installed, but I can look past this if I can get some of my favorite stripped down widgets that come standard on the Galaxy Nexus running 4.1. I've found the GoogleEars APK, but can not find the Mail Widget (Live View of the Mailbox(s), The My Music Google Play Widget. Also has anyone found a way to replace the Notifications Drop down or edit the Lock Screen? I am currently running NOVA launcher.

    WidgetLocker (by the same developer as Novalauncher) is a great lock screen replacement.

    Pure Messenger Widget is a great source of Notification information for the lock screen.

    I would love the Jelly Bean clock. It works great as a bed side clock.

    Does anyone know why txt msgs don't show on the lock-screen on the N2 like it did the GS3? I'm not talking about the icon at the bottom of the screen to go straight to the app I am talking about the one that shows up when you receive a text.

    I would like to know about this too. I really miss it.

    I am not sure if I'm understanding your issues but I use hand cent SMS and when a text comes in it shows up on my lock screen and allows me to respond. Is that your issue? With stock text app? Sorry if I'm not getting your point...

    On the S3 a small envelope popped up on the lockscreen with how many texts you had and what not. It does not do this on the N2

    I am having the same issues. I keep changing the wallpaper on the lockscreen, but it doesn't stick. Also...I cannot find the regular email widget that I would blow up on its own screen for fast access!!

    Yah, I really want my email widget back. I had both main accounts up on their own screen and loved it.

    Me too. That and the lockscreen issues (not being able to set my own wallpaper) are my only complaints about this phone - it is amazing!! Think when someone comes out with a custom ROM without all the bloat for this phone how fast it will be....

    Is there a way to change the lock screen wallpaper without using a third party locker?

    I may be misunderstanding, but simply hit menu key, settings, display, wallpaper, change just lockscreen from there.

    Google Music widget is there. Unfortunately I for the life of me cannot figure out how to get Google play on the lock screen like the nexus did..
