a collection of soft keys for downloading and complete instructions. Essentially you install Zip Themer from the market. Next, you need to download the soft key collection that you like to your phone SD card. Once that is done, open the app and click the menu button (three dots at the bottom of the screen) and click Update Edify. Hit Browse and pick the file that you flashed the ROM from. In my case I browsed out to the LiquidSmooth zip file. Then hit Configure. Press the back button Click the +Theme button to build the file you will flash. At this point it will also create the undo file. Browse out to where you have the soft keys that you downloaded earlier and select "Build It!". Once the files are created reboot into recovery and flash them.
This whole process may take you 10-15 minutes the first time. After you have done it once you will be an expert and will be able to flash them in 5 minutes. It is something that I would recommend that a beginner take their time doing. If you are not familiar with flashing ROMs you may want to get more experience before trying this. If you feel up to the task head over to the thread and make your Galaxy Nexus stand out.
