    Hi, I have Nexus one and I know I can open the torch (flash light) by pressing on the home button on the lock screen, how can I do this on the galaxy nexus?

    I'd like to know if there's a shortcut like this on the gnex as well. For now, my workaround is to enable the notifications dropdown on the lockscreen and use the torch toggle.

    This is what I am completely missing as well !

    Somebody should make a feature request to the chinadevs ..maybe something like the following:

    Since Galaxy Nexus has no physical HomeButton, we cannot use the lovely "Torch-from-lockscreen"-Feature!
    So please considder changing the buttons to activate the torch for the Gnex Builds.

    This could be done by setting the volume keys to the appropriate trigger. So we wouldnt use a homebutton to turn on the torch, but the volumekeys --> screenoff --> pressing BOTH volumes-keys (TORCH ON) --> skip pressing (TORCH OFF)

    I think that wouldnt be much effort since the code must be already there, its just another buttoon assignment!

    Use MIUI toolbox from miui.us to activate home button on lockscreen...
