Couple weeks back, we did showcase a beta version of ported Nexus S ICS ROM and Nexus S 4G ICS ROM but since Google has released the full ICS source code, we have a lot of great ICS ROMs popping up left and right.
One of the better ICS ROMs that I’ve been trying recently is the Brainmaster ICS ROM, which is available for both regular Nexus S and Nexus S 4G.
You get a full ICS experience (not ported) and even stuff like NFC beaming feature works (as seen in the video).
However, you will lose 4G functionality on the Nexus S 4G, which isn’t too big of a deal considering you do get a fully-functional ICS otherwise.
For those of you who’ve been waiting, hit up the download links below and let us know what you think of this ROM.
Also, you might encounter a few force-closes the first time you run some apps but they should eventually disappear.
