@Jack Clarke Dude, I agree, more than you know. There is so much potential in Stock Android. We're so used to the gimmicks produced by manufacturer based skins, but we've never embraced simplicity. In particular, I was once the owner of a LG G2x. Now, there were many things wrong with the phone, but the one thing they got right was Vanilla Android. Yes it had the crapware T-Mobile puts on all there phones, but at the time, aside from the Nexus One, it was magical.

I think there should be an option on every Android phone to either stay with Stock Android or manufacture created skins like Sense and Touchwiz. I've been using Jell Bean on my Galaxy Nexus for some time now, since its release, and its absolutely beautiful. To me, nothing compares.
About two days ago, I wrote to a representative at Google asking about the future prospects regarding the ban on all Galaxy Nexus'. He was vague on any details regarding the matter (obviously), but he did write something useful: "We at Google are working on the problems our customers face regarding the recent court decision." I assumed that Google will create a patch to bypass the ban. What solidified my assumption was an article I read last night on CNET about this patch. It read, and I'm paraphrasing, that Google is working on trying to get a patch out as early as next week. For now, we'll have to rely on the NOTIFY ME button.

I would have no problem writing on the weekends, if that means writing for a few hours throughout the day to hep post new and exciting news. I have already spoken to David already. I just need some direction. I'd be more than happy to help. Thanks.

@nathan118 Oh, Nathan, you're right! Scratch what I wrote> I was thinking of something else. Good catch.
1 year, 9 months ago on Editorial: The Nexus Name Has Died, Can Google Bring It Back?
@nathan118 I happen to agree with you, even though, I'll admit to having a strong disliking to Google "bending the knee to Verizon." But I don't think they've corrected the issue by "Selling the GSM Galaxy Nexus" since, as is customary with almost all Samsung phones, they tend to strongly resemble Apple's iPhones, and any Android fan boy who loves the crudest form of Stock Android has some deep seated hatred for iPhones. Therefore, I'll have to agree with Joey on his statement: "Google needs to go back to its roots, it needs to create a device with pure Android at heart, no branding other than its own. Is that too much to ask for?"
We Stock Android Fan Boys are a dying breed. When the Nexus One first came out, it was graciously received for using the Stock Android operating system, free of the bloatware and personalization carriers put on newer phones today. The last phone I can remember with a decent Android operating system was the LG G2x running on Vanilla Android. What do you guys think?
