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.)

How to Install ClockworkMod Touch on Rooted Nexus S or Nexus S 4G!

Want ClockworkMod Touch on your rooted Nexus S or Nexus S 4G?

You can easily do this with the ROM Manager app if you are willing to donate a small amount of $2. And if you can afford it, I highly encourage you to do that as the developers work hard and don’t get paid enough.
