Slim ICS ROM is probably the most lightweight ICS ROM available for Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. Very similar to ROMs like CodeName, Apex/Bigxie, and Crossbones but this Slim ICS ROM brings you a whopping 8 icons at the bottom of your screen plus a 4×7 app drawer. Certainly, this isn’t for everyone but for those of you who use a lot of apps, it brings a new style to your Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. (And yes, you can use folders too instead.)
Other than that, there’s UI customizations and performance settings built into the “Advanced Slim Settings” with lots of customizations that you can do. You can also overclock the Slim ICS to 1.44Ghz or flash kernels like Matr1x if you want.
If you want a very lightweight ICS ROM, give this ROM a try and let me know what you think!
