CyanogenMod9 ICS ROM v3 for Nexus S and Nexus S 4G with Matr1x Kernel!

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/unde

Slim ICS ROM for Nexus S and Nexus S 4G!

Slim ICS ROM is probably the most lightweight ICS ROM available for Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. Very similar to ROMs like CodeName, Apex/Bigxie, and Crossbones but this Slim ICS ROM brings you a whopping 8 icons at the bottom of your screen plus a 4×7 app drawer. Certainly, this isn’t for everyone but for those of you who use a lot of apps, it brings a new style to your Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. (And yes, you can use folders too instead.)

Other than that, there’s UI customizations and performance settings built into the “Advanced Slim Settings”

CyberGRMod ROM for Rooted Nexus S!

The CyberGRMod ROM is another great ICS ROM for your rooted Nexus S. This ROM actually was referred to me by users on YouTube very often. I apologize for the delay for getting this ROM reviewed on NexusSHacks.com but believe me, it was well worth the wait.

The CyberGRMod ROM does remind me a lot of CodeName ROM (which I reviewed last week) and there’s many similarities plus more tweaking. You can also load Matr1x kernel up for your flashing pleas

CodeName ICS ROM with Matr1x Kernel for Rooted Nexus S and Nexus S 4G!

Here’s another combo you can expect some smooth performance with great battery life, CodeName ICS ROM with Matr1x kernel. I think this one, Crossbones, and Bigxie/Apex ROMs are probably the best I’ve tried so far.

The CodeName ICS ROM is super fast, I was getting over 3000 on Quadrant on couple runs. For those of you who need the best ROMs, you might want to give this ROM a try. It’s also available in both Nexus S and Nexus S 4G so that’s a plus.

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

NexusBeam ICS ROM for Rooted Nexus S!

As for the Nexus S ICS ROMs, you might want to give this NexusBeam ICS ROM a try.  Although I still haven’t found a kernel to work well with it(believe me, I tried all of them), the highlight of this ICS ROM is that it runs super-smooth without any overclocking.  As far as ICS ROMs go, NexusBeam ICS ROM is the smoothest ROM I’ve tried so far with no lag when browsing the web.

The NexusBeam ROM does come with GPU rendering, which might be why and give this a go as everything is working on this ROM.

AndroidME ICS ROM for Rooted Nexus S!

Last couple days I have been guilty of trying out many ICS ROMs for my Nexus S and I think I may have found a good ICS ROM for it, the AndroidME ICS ROM.

I am not going to define a good ICS ROM here by judging its features and listing them but from experience of using these ROMs.  And based on that, the AndroidME ICS ROM is one of the smoother ROMs on the Nexus S.

Of course, there’s more work to do like matching up the ROM with the right kernel to make it even faster/smoother but we will have that later this week.

In the meanwhile, go ahead and try this

Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Rooted Nexus S!

For folks with a regular Nexus S, you are not out of luck either as there’s a fully working ICS ROM for a rooted Nexus S.  Most things are working on this ROM except for panoramic camera, NFC, and other minor things.  But it’s a completely usable daily driver ROM.

The ICS ROM is a bit laggy due to the fact that it’s a ported ROM but things should get better in the near future and I will post updates on future versions.

Try it out and let me know how you like ICS!  Nexus S is one of the best devices for Ice Cream Sandwich.

Want a cool Galaxy Nexus Ice Cream Sandwich launcher running on your rooted Nexus S or Nexus S 4G?

Check out Ice and Fire ROM, which comes with that and ton of other great tweaks like battery and performance optimizations.

One warning though, I haven’t been able to flash Trinity kernels on this ROM so there’s no overclocking here but it’s a great ROM if you don’t need OC.
