I’ve always felt Apex ICS ROM coupled with Matr1x kernel was one of the best ICS combos out there for your Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. Well, since our last overview, Apex ICS ROM has been upgraded to Android 4.0.4 with even more features and faster than ever before.
The all-new version 1.1.2 (released just two days ago) features Android 4.0.4 IMM76I base (latest), UI customizations, built-in CPU performance settings, CM9 kernel (you can use Matr1x if you want overclocking), and performance/battery improvements.
A lot of the performance and battery improvements you will have to test it for yourself to actually “feel” it but I think Apex ICS ROM has done it again, bringing you the best of many ROMs with one.
Try this ROM if you haven’t yet and let me know what you think of it.
