Here's some softkey icons I came up with. . . .
*Edit: Since most Galaxy Nexus rom are allowing you to change the color of the soft keys, all the ones I do from now on will be white. Unless someone has a special request. If you don't want the rom to color the soft keys for you, enter 00000000 as the hex number in the soft key color picker.
Also, since the roms out now allow us to change these from their rom tools, just download the zip from your phone & unzip it(make sure you know where). Now you'll be able to change them from the rom's tools app in Settings.
Here's the icons that are themed: Back, Home, Recent, Menu_Big, Menu(in most of the zips. Some looked fine with the stock ones), Search, the Lights out dots when you're in the camera app & the highlight icon that shows up behind the soft keys when pressed(in some cases, there's more than one to choose from). If they are not shown in the screen shots, they are not in the zip.

Noob question. Does it need to be rooted?
Yes, you have to be un-locked and rooted

Ahh, thanks guys. I haven't ever messed with stuff like this, my boyfriend normally does. I guess I'm going to attempt it (; Wish me luck
a wee bit of advise, READ the Guides and prepare first, feel free to run your "Plan" by the forum first for confirmation you're not missing any steps.

Cheers and welcome to the 1%
I told Chris (bf) I was gonna root and unlock my device and he just looked at me. lol He said wait a second and I'll do it with you... So I'll have his help also. :P
