Here’s an update on CM9 ICS ROM for Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. Last time I installed it, it was one of the first ICS ROMs available and very buggy. Well, the recent version 3.0 ROMs are probably one of the best out there. One of the things I noticed about this ROM is that the camera/camcorder start-up lag is almost non-existent, something I was wishing to be fixed on the ICS ROMs. Other than that, there’s only great things I can say about CM9 ICS ROM, it comes with loads of customizations like the launcher, ability to add CM9 themes, and tweak CPU overclock/underclock settings.
For those of you wondering, which ROM is the best for your Nexus S or Nexus S 4G, I think they all have their own merits. You can really give this guy a go or any of other ROMs I’ve reviewed in the last couple months including Bigxie, Codename, Crossbones, etc…etc…
For goo results on this ROM, try this:
Good combo for Nexus S: CM9 + Matr1x @1.3/1.46Ghz OC with Min/Max or Lulzactive/intellidemand/wheatley/Lionheart
Good combo for Nexus S 4G: CM9 + Matr1x @1.46Ghz OC with Lulzactive/intellidemand/wheatley/Lionheart
Download for Matr1x Kernel (works on both Nexus S and S 4G)
Instructions for flashing – In CWM, wipe, install ROM, install GoogleApps, then install Matr1x kernel.
