For this week’s Nexus S ROM of the Week, check out CM11 ROM with HighOnAndroid OnePlus One Conversion Kit!
For those of you with a GSM Nexus S, you will also be able to enjoy the latest CM11 ROM Milestone “M10”, which is CM11 ROM’s latest stable release with overclocking support up to 1.4Ghz.
With this combo, you will be able to easily convert your Nexus S into a OnePlus One phone. You will get almost every OnePlus One software feature like OnePlus One camera and Hexo Theme. Of course, you can also just run CM11 ROM by itself, which is pretty solid already.
For overclocking, make sure you hit “Build Number” under Settings->About Phone so you can access the Performance menu where you can overclock your Nexus S to 1.4Ghz. This is recommended for optimal performance.
Overall, this is an amazing custom ROM that will allow you to experience the latest Android 4.4.4 so you don’t get left out just because you have a 3 year old phone. So, definitely give this guy a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
Download Android 4.4.4 Gapps [You can use Micro]
Download HighOnAndroid OnePlus One Conversion Kit [No AudioFX version as broken on Nexus S]
Note: CM11 does not have root enabled by default but you can easily enable it for adb & apps in Developer options. If you do not know how to do this, see this video.
YOU HAVE TO USE CWM Recovery 126.96.36.199 or HIGHER otherwise you will fail during install and other problems will occur!!! You can easily update to latest CWM Recovery by using ROM Manager from Play Store.
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Conversion Kit, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system. For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)
