IT'S ALIVE!

If you're a dyed-in-the-wool modder, here's a great weekend project -- modifying your Verizon Galaxy Nexus to work with the HP Touchstone.  I'll tell you right up front -- this one isn't for the faint-hearted.  It involves breaking the case open and voiding your warranty.  But AC member ohiomoto has a beautiful step-by-step to guide you through, and there's no need for a soldering iron.  Things are always fine if you don't have to break out the soldering iron ...

Anyways, it's a cool mod that allows you to use what may be the best thing Palm ever invented.  We've seen it done for some other phones, and now it's big daddy Nexus' turn.  If you're a bit handy, check out the forum link and have a look.  Thanks, ohiomoto!

You guys need to make links easier to find. Which link is to the guide? You would assume that the words "a beautiful step by step guide would be the link but no.

more easy ???... come on !!!! just yo have to click on galaxy nexus forums at the end of the post

when ever they are talking about something someone else did, there is always a like to the source at the end of the article.

No need for a soldering iron? The instructions clearly say "Note: We need to solder this or else we won't get enough current to charge the phone due to the adhesive on the back side of the tape."
