Looking for a really good ROM + kernel combo on ICS that can make your Nexus S or Nexus S 4G run really fast?
Well, I think I’ve finally found a great combo for my Nexus S and also Nexus S 4G (For Nexus S 4G, the Crossbones ROM + Matr1x Kernel is great too).
I was talking to Matr1x kernel developer MathKid95 on XDA the other day on Google Talk and asked him what the best combo was. He told me that Bigxie’s ROMs run really good with his kernel.
I tried it and let me tell you this is the best ROM/kernel combo I’ve seen for both my Nexus S and Nexus S 4G.
Face Unlock works really well, both of my Nexus S and Nexus S 4G can be overclocked to 1.46Ghz stable, and everything is every smooth.
The best part?
The latest Matr1x kernel comes with Wheatley governor (you can choose this in SetCPU app), which gives you best performance and battery life.
For now, I think this is the best combo that allows me to overclock my Nexus S to 1.46Ghz stable. I’ve been trying many other ROMs/kernels and my Nexus S would reboot everytime I overclock but with this ROM/kernel, the issue is totally gone.
As for Nexus S 4G, I think this ROM and the Crossbones ROM/Matr1x kernel are both great choices.
You can test this ROM/kernel combo out yourself but I tell ya, you will be happy with its performance, the best ICS Combo I’ve tested so far. Let me know how it works for you.
